In the hopes of keeping DE alive, I'm posting MORE TRAIL PICS!!
These are from yesterday's ride in southern Indiana. The trails were mostly dry and it was a beautiful day. We didn't stray far from the trails today since all but one area had been cleared of fallen trees. That one is going to take more than a chain saw though. It's about 20' wide with several trees stacked on top of each other. It might be a permanent detour around that.
We had a guest ride with us. This gal lived in the area several years ago and had horses but moved to FL and has been horseless since. She was amazed at the changes in the trails since she left. There's been a couple of tornadoes which cleared some areas. Other areas that were open have grown up with scrub trees and brush. Trails relocated... It was interesting to listen to her comments.
Told ya it was a gorgeous day!
And a somewhat fuzzy pic of yours truly cheesing it up for the cam!

I haven't been trail riding yet this spring. My best friend, who boarded her horse with me, lost her three year battle with cancer in March. She gave me her horse a few days before she passed away. I have a few friends who have volunteered to ride with me this year. Now if it would just stop raining so the round pen would dry out I could get the horses tuned up....
"The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. " Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
