Riding for a Cause...

St. Judes Children's hospital and AQHA trail riding.... what a great combination!!  Yesterday we had the opportunity to participate in a local trail benefit ride for a great cause.  The scenery wasn't near as pretty as it usually is due to the extreme drought we are in but it was still beautiful and lots of fun.  We caught up with old friends and made some new ones along the way!!

Sonny, Dobie, and Moon were gracious enough to take us along so we had a great afternoon of fun with them.  In return, they got a bath and a bucket of grain so everybody was happy!

Nathan and Dobie are ready to go!!

The first steep hill and creek bottom crossing! Thanks to the drought there was no water to cross!
Our leader, Terry, bringing us to the end of the ride!

Heading to the finish!

Quality family time with NO electronic devices!! Mom is happy!!

Horses of every size, shape and color but they were all beautiful!!
After 2 1/2 hours, horses and riders were all pretty tired but everybody made it to the finish safely.  It was a great way to raise money for a great cause and we will definitely do it again next year!  Maybe you can join us!!  We can always round up an extra horse or two!!
