P.S. Thank you to "Babe" for this ride. Babe is a bay Morgan, and my new favorite little mare at the ranch to take out on a trail ride. She has the smoothest ground-covering walk out well and I feel like we could ride for days!
P.P.S. Thank you to my Ranch Boy for not getting us lost on this ride, one of my biggest fears about trail riding.
