Note from Alice Hubert

The trails there were excellent, with a good variety.  Field roads, gravel roads, narrow twisty one tracks, and nice wide two-tracks through the woods.  The driver’s route did not have any water crossings, but there were a few steep hills to make the horses work a bit.  the one-tracks were challenging enough that I didn’t try to take pictures, as I was trying to negotiate the corners.  🙂  The gravel roads were covered with pea gravel, so it was easy on the horses’ hooves.  Goodie liked the gravel because it gave him a chance to get moving at a good trot.  However, we never got over 15.5 mph, which is an improvement for him.

The heat was an issue, but there were plenty of water tanks.  No horses were pulled because of metabolics.  Another occasional challenge was the trains.  There were several trains a day, and the tracks went fairly close to the trails in some places.  As far as I know, most of our horses did well, other than Penguin trying to race it, and getting himself worked up.  But Ray was able to slow him down, and make all the corners.
