7IL Trail Ride

A quarter horse, a thoroughbred, a fresian, a standardbred and a trakehner all walk into a bar...
No not really, but the five of us DID go on the 6.3 mile "Red" trail (see map above) today at beautiful 7IL Ranch. The footing was perfect and the long slow distances up and down hills were an ideal compliment to our dressage fitness program. The steeper banks, where the horses have to sit pushing up the bank and collect coming down the bank were also excellent practice for our dressage mounts. Fording through belly-deep water was exciting. Mostly though the trails and company at 7IL are just plain fun.
