Horseback Wanderings in Central Washington

A New Year, a New Start

Okay, so I’ve been AWOL for awhile, but with a new year and now that I’m retired, I’m going to try to be more consistent with keeping up here.

I’m going to start with a batch of ride photos from 2014.  Because my horse has been laid up, I myself haven’t been on too many club rides, so many of these photos are blatantly stolen from other members’ Face Book pages.  Kate will be limited for at least another 4-6 months, so please feel free to email me any ride photos you come up with.

These are not quite in order, and if anyone can identify an unlabeled photo (or correct one that I’ve labeled wrong) let me know!

Enjoy!

    OK, so when is your next meeting? And where? We be retired, ride a lot, and would love to join you!

    • Our meetings are the second Thursday of most months, 7:00 PM at the Spurs Restaurant, inside of the Quality Inn on Canyon Road (just down from the I-90 exit). Next month will be on February 12th. You can sign up and pay dues there ($25, I think, for a “family” membership). Come on down!
