More Riding

The week after that first Competitive Trail Ride was my annual Friday Before Mother's Day Ride.  Since there were so many graduation parties that coming weekend, I decided to stretch it out and have a pre-ride party at my house.  I made room for my guests' horses and rigs and decorated the deck for a fun outdoor party after what I assumed would be a leisurely ride down our gravel roads.  But Mother Nature has a way with even the best laid plans and while we enjoyed just a brief ride (cold and windy) and dinner inside for the same reason, it was the perfect precursor to a lovely day.

The ride numbers were down a bit this year; probably around 75 riders.  That is plenty enough for me.  It's always a busy weekend so that is the reason it is held on Fridays.  I keep saying that this is the last year I will sponsor it but then when the ride comes up, I find myself looking forward to it.  It's an easy ride and with the pre-party, makes for the perfect weekend.

The host should always be the last to leave.  When a friend found the battery dead on her truck, we were delighted with out success in getting it back on the road.  Simple pleasures.
