In which we are couch-surfers, become shiny, and go riding with Sky
|Brent Skill built the Ansur western-style saddle he's sitting on. |
I prefer the endurance-type rig...but any saddle is better than standing on cement all day.
|The corner of a table is just fine. Wanna buy a book?|

|Endurance 101 workshops were well-attended by|
potential recruits to the True Faith.
|BLING! Sky's helmet has a modern-yet-classic goth look,|
reminiscent of the studs on James Dean's leather jacket.
|My helmet bling is more over-the-top, |
reminiscent of the studs on Frankenfurter's fishnet stockings.
|Neil built this trail. He's also kinda interested in this "endurance thing-y"|
not only introduced Good Boy Barney to the joys of Bicyclists Who Carry Horse Cookies, he also inquired about our horses and their breeding and training.
Turns out, he had wanted to attend the Endurance 101 seminars at the Horse Expo the previous day, but had missed the opportunity. That's okay. We sent him a link to the E101 website. I hope he enjoys the book!
The rest of the ride was just the usual:
|Barney is now convinced the all bicyclists carry horse cookies!|
|Crossing the Red Sea: Barney looks like a seasoned pro, and Trinket is right behind him!|
the forest being pretty all around us,
and me taking pictures with ears at the bottom.
|Scout still showing the way|
