THREE KNOB MOUNTAIN TRAIL RIDE
We had the most wonderful day today, riding with the Penkas on Three Knob Mountain! There is a nice logging road that runs back to a scenic view of the valley all the way to Mount Nebo. We rode about an hour or more and then rested at a beautiful pond where the horses got a refreshing drink and a cooling swim and the people enjoyed some cold water and an apple. So much fun! We can’t wait to go back!
Ted rode Woodrow (Formerly known as Cisco). This was his first trail ride off the farm since we bought him and Ted’s first trail ride off the farm ever! I was SO proud of both of them!!! Woodrow’s behavior was excellent!
From this point you can see the whole valley including Mt. Magazine and Mt. Nebo. I should have taken a picture from the middle looking out but I was thinking more of getting photos of the riders and not the view. Next time. :)
We just couldn’t keep ClaireAnna out of the water with Missy! She had so much fun!
Ted sure looks great on his great big, black and white, Missouri Fox Trotter! We LOVE this new horse!
We just tied the horses to some pine trees and took a rest.
Our riding companions were Justus and Olga Penka and their wonderful boys, Malcolm and Kurt. We are so grateful they decided to take us along today!
I rode Cindy, seen here tied to a pine tree taking a rest. She was very well behaved, but she had to trot so much to keep up with the gaited horses and her fast little trot is so bumpy that I felt like I was riding a pogo stick! Not so good!
Almost ready to head back. What a WONERFUL day!!!
