Ride Report - MTRA Fall Roundup 2008
by Becky Feist, MTRA President
It's so hard to believe that fall officially was right around the corner after the weekend weather we enjoyed for the MTRA Fall Trail Ride. Over sixty riders met at Marvin & Patsy Breitkreitzke's farm south of Renville, MN, September 19-21. We went out for an evening ride on Friday which ended with a spectacular lightning show in the sky. We felt a few rain drops and heard a lot of rumbling.
Saturday morning started out overcast and humid but the skies cleared and the temperature must have reached into the 80's. Marvin led us on trails thru out the Minnesota River Valley, finding some of them a bit challenging for both riders and horses. Many comments were heard that they couldn't believe they were in Minnesota with the terrain and scenery they
Saturday evening everyone enjoyed the potluck supper and was entertained by the raffle and silent auction. It was hard to see the weekend end after the Sunday morning ride. Everything was perfect, the weather, the trails, and the company.
Now fall begins and some of the best riding weather is enjoyed. We find fewer bugs, still watch out for those nasty bees, and beautiful sights of Mother Nature's changes can be enjoyed.
Get out and enjoy the trails!!!!
