Rainy ride

Well, my sister and I were determined to ride. The weather forecast was for thunderstorms at 11:00. That gave us 2 hours and 20 minutes. We decided we would ride an hour and turn around and come home. At the 59-minute mark, we heard thunder. We immediately turned around. Ten minutes later, it started pouring. When it got real bad, we took shelter in a picnic pavilion. (Don’t tell the rangers.) It eased up, and we headed home. By the time we walked down the driveway, it was just a drizzle.

The good news? We weren’t in the barn 5 minutes before it really started to pour! Even though we couldn’t get much wetter than we already were, we were relieved that we missed the worst of the storm.

Cruiser got wet—Mingo got the day off.

The weather Sunday was beautiful, but my sister had to work and I rode by myself. I took both horses for a nice ride, but I sure did miss my sister.
