When !( went out to hook up my new trailer, one tire was flat. My husband found that it had a plug that was leaking, so I ran over to the tire store and got one new tire on that rim. (…first bad choice of the weekend…).
We finally got on the road and arrived at the horse camp at about noon. It took a zillion tries to get both trucks and trailers wangled into the campsite, but we got it done (I might have hollared a time or two). It started raining, which really made me appreciate the awning, so we decided to visit the swimming hole down the river from our site. As soon as we got there, the sun came out, so we decided to ride up to the big swim spot, two miles up the trail. We all rode bareback in swimsuits, which was really fun. The water was cold, but it is an amazing spot.
We had a great night Saturday night. I love the trailer - showering after riding, and getting up and brushing my teeth and making coffee is the BEST, esp at a primitive camp.
We decided to ride to the waterfall Sunday morning, and my buddy Robin took a really hard fall off her horse, River. It was so scary. She had the breath knocked out of her and didn’t move for about five minutes. I really thought she was terribly injured, but she seems okay, just sore. After she was up and talking, I sent the kids on to the waterfall, and Robin and I were going to walk back to camp. After a few minutes, though, she decided she was okay to ride on, so we caught up with the kids, and the waterfall was great.
On the drive home, I had a trailer tire blow out (that sounds like a bomb going off, I had no idea), and it took out the fender on my horse trailer. We were so lucky though, an amazing couple stopped, and the man and Chris had that tire changed in about three minutes. I love my trailer buddy contraption!
