I rode with with my usual Friday group, and we now, after lo, these many years, have an official name: No, were are not “The Covid 5”. We are “The Flat Stirrup Crew”.
We are not exactly sure how this occurred. Either Siri’s horse laid down while no one was looking or he squashed it against the rather small tree to which he was tied at Pecos Baldy Lake.
Surely, I thought, we could fix it.
The metal was unfortunately sturdy, even in the flattened state, so we resorted to the only tools we could find. Rocks.
We fixed it!
We had a fine ride down to Jack’s Creek Trailhead and on the way Patty S. convinced her horse to do a solo water crossing, with a little help from Penny, the mentor horse!
It was a very fine day, indeed!
