Well, my big travelling is done for now! The Cypress Hills trail ride was so great again and Josh's clinic last week was as awesome as usual. My head is full of new information and have lots to work on in the next few months. Am teaching about as many students as I can manage at the moment - all are progessing so nicely it is wonderful to see. The weather has made some of our horse work a bit challenging lately, some pretty wild storms have come through over the last couple of weeks. Plan on a quiet weekend coming up, need a time out to rest some. Perfect day out today so am going outside to work with the young stock. Need pictures of babies for registration applications too. All is a bit difficult at the moment as the horse flies are peaking and are very nasty. Chase the horses around a lot even with using sprays. Sultan (colt sold to Annette Dionne) is coming to visit for a few days at the end of the month - horsey sitting for Annette and Greg while they go on a pack trip holiday. It will great to see the little guy again.

The Nez Perce Ride to Freedom 2008 was blessed with incredible weather and good folks! We had wonderful rides, great food and excellent evening presentations. Wally performed his lovely music again - very enjoyable. The scenery is spectacular and well worth the drive down to see. The Reesor Ranch always provides us with the most gracious hosts. It was a pleasure to meet our special guests from Idaho - Sandi & Mike McFarland, and Rosa Yearout. They provided us great insight into Nez Perce history with very interesting stories. Good time!
