Galloping, Galloping, Gone!

For many, many years I enjoyed the work of exercising and training horses at various race tracks.    Here are a few pictures of those days gone by in my horsey life. I do have to say, I was very fit back then.  It was like doing three hours of aerobics each morning. The horses […]

Calvin’s Recent Trail Ride

What is better than A trail ride? Two trail rides, two days in a row! Yesterday was Wrigley’s trail debut!  What a terrific boy he was.  Today I had the privilege of taking Calvin on his 4th trail ride. He is getting the hang of it. I do believe it is really helping him to […]
