Riding the Dakota Prairie on Christmas Eve.

, , , ,

By J. Bottum, from the December 22, 2000 Wall Street Journal:

Late afternoon on Christmas Eve, the year I was eleven, my father took me with him across the river. I can’t remember what the urgency was, but he needed some papers signed by a rancher who lived over on the other side of the Missouri from Pierre. So off we headed, west over the bridge and north through the river hills.

If you’ve never seen that South Dakota country in winter, you have no idea how desolate land can be. I once asked my grandmother why her grandfather had decided to stop his wagon-trek in what became the town where she was born. And she answered, in surprise that I didn’t know, “Because that’s where the tree was.”

Nice story RTWT.

Unhappy landing for the rider. Horse was fine.

Horse Found on Roof

, ,

A New Brunswick couple in the business of raising racehorses left a one-year-old colt alone in his paddock. Overnight, he found his way onto the garage roof, doubtless looking for his equine friends.

They have since fenced off access to that roof.

New British Side-Saddle Record

, , ,

Horse and Hound:

Michaela Bowling set a new British side saddle high jump record by clearing 6ft 3in at the The National Show at Aintree on Saturday 27 July.

Riding Laughing Larry, who is blind in one eye, they were just 3in off the world record.

Michaela, a regular showjumper and former point-to-point jockey, has been riding side saddle for a while, but this was only the third time Laughing Larry has been ridden aside.

Ireland’s Susan Oakes, who broke the record last year at 5ft 11in, finished second.
