This has been my summer for riding high as Cryztal-B, my arabian mare, and I have prepared for and competed in three trail rides. Our most recent event was last weekend, the Ontario Competetive Trail Riding Association (OCTRA) Merrickville Competitive Trail Ride. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time.
We completed the 20 mile ride in 4 hours, with an additional half hour midway hold and vet check. Our riding partners were good friend Sharen Craig and her horse I Bee Jazzin’. Thanks to Ordinary Ripple Photography for the great shots.
