Horses

221223 1624 I’m posting my old drafts UNEDITED. Comment below all the mistakes you see. I remember this incident. I didn’t mention that all the riders were wearing the same fancy cowboy shirts, like they were a riding team or something. This group wanted me to totally stop my bike while they passed. Some weeks later, I came up on a couple of ladies who were riding and so I completely stopped my bike, but they insisted I keep moving. You just never know with horses I guess.

The last couple of times I’ve been out on the Katy Trail I’ve seen horseback riders. I had never encountered them while out riding, even though the trail is open to horseback riding. A couple of weeks ago a group of riders were coming towards me. I thought I was being prudent and slowed way down, barely moving. Once cowboy in group stopped his horse completely, but when I got within 25 feet his horse bolted the other way. I stopped my bike and got off. Charlie Goodnight got his horse under control and Buffalo Bills Wild West Show passed on by without further incident. They, the riders, were actually very nice and were quite apologetic

Just a 46 year old trying to stay in shape. Not pro-athlete in shape, just 46 year old guy with a family and a house and a job in shape. Signing up for races is the best way I've found to do that. I blog about things that happen to me and things I observe while training and racing. Let's do this!
