Or maybe trail smoldering. This morning David and I took our visiting nephews Cameron and Keigan for a 2-hour trail ride at Mustang Riding Stables. I was attracted to this facility because (1) all their horses look healthy in the pictures and (2) it's located in Miracle Valley, where David and I tried long and hard to buy property. This region lies slightly northeast of Deroche and is surrounded by mountain backdrops on three sides with the lovely Stave Lake to the north. Many mountain-fed streams make for some incredible trails, and I think that everyone enjoyed their ride. I was on a 20-year-old Arab gelding named TC, who was eerily similar to Raven under saddle. I felt right at home!
The whole posse, with thanks to our guide.
