I know it's a little late, but, I had to wait to get this picture from somebody. So, here goes....
I suspect many people spend New Year's Day sleeping in. Others might be shopping, taking advantage of the holiday sales. I prefer to do something else, ride my horse!
As a member of the 40 Something Cowgirls, I can participate in many of the organization's events. They schedule an annual New Year's Day ride in Scio, around private property, along the Willamette River and back up the road a ways. While it was cold, it was at least sunny and dry. That's me in the middle on my black horse, in a purple coat.
If you are looking for a fun group of gals to ride with and attend other equine events, let me know! I would be happy to invite you as my guest to one of our events so you can check it out.
