Horses and bikes

Filed under: — stan @ 7:29 pm

Sunday was a day of riding. On our way back from the hike on Saturday, we had passed a stable, and Lucinda asked if she could try riding a horse. So I called and found out that the Camp Richardson Corral offered trail rides, and they allowed kids. So Lucinda and I went there on Sunday morning to do the one-hour trail ride. Cathy went shopping, since she does not like horses.

The ride was very nice. Lucinda was riding Scotch, and I was on Parkie. We rode through the woods to no place in particular, but Lucinda liked it a lot. I took riding lessons when I was a kid, and I used to be quite good at it, but the last time I was on a horse was in 1972, so I was a bit rusty. My horse kept wanting to stop to sample mouthfuls of the grass along the trail. Our guide Elsa was very good, and she told me how to get him to stop doing that. After that, Parkie and I had an understanding and the rest of the ride was fine.

After the ride, we all went and had lunch. Then we headed over to Anderson’s Bike Rental and rented bikes for an afternoon ride. This time, Lucinda rode in the little trailer. We rode through town and then through the Tahoe Keys marina neighborhood. We all though that it looked like Irvine-by-the-lake. I guess that’s why we don’t live in a place like that. Still, it was a fun ride.

When we got back to the house, we went to the pool for a while. Then we went and had dinner at Evans, which is still easily our favorite restaurant there.
