Holiday Riding in Maine

Susan and AhD
What a lovely End of Holiday ride we had last Sunday!  At the crack of dawn (literally) I loaded Ah-D and Allie into the trailer and Kate and I were off to Poland to ride on Ulla's trails.

There are some unbelievable trails in Poland.  This particular one runs right along the edge of a new beaver pond.  I was on the lookout for beavers, but they were hiding.  There was evidence of them everywhere, with massive trees lying around, pointed on the ends by beaver teeth.

We went on some back roads, too.  Hardly any traffic.  Well, of course it was about 6 am Sunday morning, so DUH.  Ah-D and I must have been hanging back with Allie when I took this shot.  Poor Allie had his work cut out for him to keep up with the rest of us, but he did great.

I took this shot as we crossed a bridge.  What a view!  It was so peaceful and fresh.  We covered a lot of ground in the few hours we had before the daytime weather descended like a hot, wet blanket.  It was wonderful to be out with like-minded friends on well-behaved horses, just in the nick of time before the Deer Fly Season starts in earnest here in the Northeast.
Happy Trails, Everyone!
p.s. If you hear a rumor about my giving up my Curly for a motorcycle, don't believe it.
