This course has always been technically challenging, but it seemed to have additional challenges this time.  In addition to tight turns, steep hills, and trees that seems to jump out and lodge between your cart and wheels, there were washout gullies which twisted horses and wheels.  As you may have heard, Sue Keating and her Belle hit one of those gullies, and ended up off course, with Sue getting thrown out and the cart getting stuck on a tree, which kept the horse and vehicle from falling down the side.  Sue ended up with a broken ankle, but last report was that she was in good spirits.

 

Aaron and his horse slid down the side of the switchback and got stuck on a tree.  He, the horse and cart were all unscathed, and after unhitching with the help of some riders, and getting the cart back on course, they were able to finish perfectly within their time window.  Lil Kay and I managed to get lost within a half mile of camp, and ended up on a trail intended for riders.  I got her to back through most of it, but then she sat down, and refused to budge.  I unhitched her, turned the cart around, and then she stood up.  I rehitched and went back to the start.  We made it through the technical part, including her first water crossing, but then after a nice stretch of wide trails along a prairie, she refused to go back into the woods.  I tried three times, and decided not to risk her bolting forward and crashing, so I went back to camp on some nice quiet country roads.

 

 Ruth drove the Casserly rig, and Tim drove Sue’s rig back to her place.  They live fairly close to each other.  Adventures for all. J
