I fell down while filming… but the horses look good anyway!!

We just got home tonight… and we are all tired and traveled out… so I thought I’d just show you a short video I took on our first day at the R Lazy S Ranch.

OK, so to set this up… I had been in the office after our 2nd ride of the day.  I think I was checking in with Cathy, the Ranch Manager.

Anyway, I heard a commotion and saw that the wranglers were running the horses into their night time, grassy pasture.  I could hear the horses running and screaming… and the CRACK of the bull whip (which just excites them and keeps all 80 horses from stopping along the way to eat grass…)

Oh My Gosh I was so excited, I burst out of the office door, ran full speed ahead while fumbling with my camera… AND FELL FLAT ON MY FACE!   I had totally forgotten about the steps outside the office.

There I was, writhing on the ground… but still managed to get my camera righted to video the horses running.

The funny part is that I knew my ankle really hurt, but I didn’t want to make any sound to ruin the video.  So I didn’t.  But towards the end, you hear me moan and laugh once I realized that my ankle was twisted, but totally fine.

Day 4. Glorious. No smoke in the sky, perfect temperatures and an ALL DAY ride. Sigh.

Thursday at the R Lazy S Ranch.  Such a glorious ride hosted by our fabulous wrangler, Rob.  He sings, he wrangles and he takes us places that we have never ventured before.

Today we rode all day… had lunch at an old ranch called, Sky Ranch.  (The Park Service is redoing the entire ranch… the new decking and facing were beautiful.). Then we went back a totally new way, through forests and rivers… just glorious.  Every type of terrain.

I love my horse.  Cash is the very best.  Today he got apples and carrots at lunch.


This is me… I had so many layers with me (7 in total, including the yellow rain slicker on my saddle), that I never look the same in any shot. So, just look for the tallest (most handsome) horse and I’m the one on him.

This was our lunch spot at the Sky Ranch. You can barely see Rob in the distance.

Cash giving me ‘cookie face’ – begging for another carrot.


Isn’t this glorious?!!! Open fields forever in the Teton National park! I’m second from left in black.

Here we are at lunch on the deck of an old ranch house called, Sky Ranch. Fran our friend from Grass Valley, Sandy and Tom in front from Alabama, I’m in the way back with Rob the wrangler.

Here we are again, making our way through the tall grass.

Up on a ridge… overlooking the valley. In the front is Adam and then Fran (our friends from Grass Valley), then me in white – I’ve shed some layers – then Sandy and Tom, our friends from Alabama. (Hubby was on a different ride today.)

Another view from the ridge…

Cash, contemplating the best part of the river for his drink.

Happy, happy me and Cash at the end of the ride. We are on the dike near the R Lazy S Ranch (and the Snake River).
