I'm way behind on all things blog-related, mostly due to 1) my laptop crashing again and 2) life is insane. The cliffnotes version of the last 2 weeks is: I fell off Mimi for the first time in a couple years, the Sunday before going to McDowell. Not how to go into a ride. However, we went to McDowell. Dad and Beamer also went, as Beamer's sore shoulder cleared up a week and half or so before the ride. We all finished, and in fine form. Tough ride, and despite being the same trail as February, it seemed harder this time, but the ponies looked better at the end.
Details will follow in a later post, as I was writing the ride story when the computer crashed. Photos will be up later, as mine were on my computer, but not backed up when it crashed. Granted, I only took about 10 pictures throughout the day. The photographer got some beautiful pictures of us, and as soon as the digital copies go up online, I'll post those.
