St. Jude Trail Ride at the Underwood Ranch in Collinsville

After a long workweek in Kansas, we were planning to have a dressage shooling show at the Rocking C - but the show was cancelled.  So we had a free Sat.  Kathy B broughy Missy over for a test ride (pre-trail ride) and Kirk took a ride on Cisco while I worked Splash a little, Alaina played on Diez, and Ivy jumped Pico.
A late afternoon visit to TC at the Urban Ranch was shortened by a brief but heavy downpour - and a total sky rainbow. 
No rain at the Underwood's (north of Collinsville) so the St. Jude Benefit Trail ride was ON! Stephanie came over to help stuff deviled eggs for the husbands and we headed out with Diez, Splash and Sunny; Kathy B was bringing the Cisco Kid for Steff and she rode Missy.
We had a good turn-out for the St. Jude (28 trail riders and 3 arena girls) - $815 for St. Jude so far.  Diez did fine for her first big ride since founder and Splash and Sunny were pretty good at bringing up the rear.  With our position at the end of the group (well back) my photos are a sad story - sorry if I missed you. 

Yaya's in attendence included Rita, Judy, Leila, Tammy, Tami, Kathy, Steff, and Paula.  Nancy was missing on injured reserve, Sherry had a date with Knox in Texas, Christiana was watching Zoe compete at a dance competition, and Masha was planting a vineyard - don't know what the rest of the gang was doing but we had a lovely ride and missed them all.
