I know I already announced that Elektra is one of the ICHO Horse of the Year... she also earned a nice ribbon and prize from the CSI for 2009 HOY for her Intro level showing this past summer !
Tuesday - we had all day free.. so in spite of the damp, cold, snow and icy roads -- we wanted to get out for a nice long pleasure ride. There are 4 more days left of the last segment of hunting.. and hopefully we can get back into trail exploration. We decided to trot through Stone Village in Chester.. it's been awhile since we sauntered the entire length of Trebo Road and perhaps Stone Village will be all dressed up for the holidays and make for some pretty photo's.
Right here is where we turn left up Crow Hill Road to trot home if we are going the 12 mile loop... but today we stay straight - to get down on Route 103 and into Stone Village.
You might have noticed in so many of my photo's and video's - my neighbors across the road from my farm have several greenhouses - this is their Stone Village Farmers Market- where they sell flowers, their own vegetables and holiday items.. like pumpkins and trees. Even this did not seem that festive to me this year.
