Well maybe we didn't ride them like real cowboys but one thing we did toward the end of the vacation was go to Gettysburg and take a trail ride through a part of the battlefield.
We all were looking forward to doing this and at the end of the day I think we could all say that it was a great time.
The weather was almost perfect. A little hot but a nice breeze and the sky was just amazing. I think the horses were a little bigger than we thought they would be but I'm sure they have made this ride so many times that they could do it in their sleep. None the less, I think maybe Petra and her son were a little bit nervous to start.
It was great. We had a full hour out in the National Park and by the end of the ride I think Petra and her son were comfortable enough that we will definietly ride again.
The only unexpected thing that happened was that as we were returning to the stables we had to ride a short distance along a busy road and Petra's horse decided to stop the whole line of us behind her so he could take a big pee that seemed to last for hours. I'm sure the tourists driving by found that amusing. LOL
