The trail ride was so much fun. While Eliana has been riding almost weekly for the past year, I have not and after a 2+ hour trail ride my bum was feeling every inch of the saddle. Eliana got to ride a very dependable ranch pony named Tonka. He especially liked being in the "back of the pack". I got to ride a ranch horse named Peanut who laid her ears flat back every time I tried to make her wait so I could ride with Eliana. Peanut was definitely a "front of the pack" ranch horse. Thank goodness the horses were well trained because the scenery was simply spectacular and sometimes we forgot we were riding.
