Trail Riding in Virginia
The Trip and Trail Rides

Click here to go back.
Thursday was an enjoyable ride up to Graves Mountain,
with twisty turny roads and a lot of talking and laughing.
The talking and laughing continued for the trail ride and the trip back.
The weather was beautiful.
Friday we rode in the countryside around Jan's farm. It was a warm
day, and we spent the afternoon shopping in Purcellville.

Hooking up and loading up the next day. Sharon's truck and Jan's trailer. For the ride to Graves, it was nice to be able to fit all three horses and have a/c in the truck.

Sharon borrowed Jeremy's Joe at Grave's Mountain.
Tight girths are required for the stout Haflingers. Here Jan is helping out Kiola.

Joe might be short, but Sharon felt comfortable on him.

It was a warm day, but we stayed in the shade as much as possible.
