New Year's Trail Ride

What a great way to start a new year - on the back of a horse in the company of great company. The weather was fine - 50ish and sunny, clear with a chilly breeze. Yaya's gathered at the Thorne Ranch in Adair for the annual ride to start a new year. Thanks to Joan for hosting our wander through the cattle pastures to the lovely lowland complete with pecan trees and water crossings, then on to another beautiful grassy prairie with the sun warming our backs as we headed back toward the hill overlooking ranch headquarters. After settling our horses with hay and (if lucky) blankets, we gathered in the kitchen for pot luck and more talk. What a great day - thank you friends.

  1. What great pictures of the ride! I particularly like the first one with all the horses and riders reflected in the pond.
