That's Brent on the left - he and I did a post-graduate program together in Asian Studies almost 20 years ago! He recognized my voice and, after talking about places we'd lived in Asia, we eventually figured out our connection. It was great seeing you, Brent, and very nice meeting your partner! Stay in touch
Here's a picture of a great family that rode with us recently. I let someone lead the little kid as I galloped ahead through the field to get this shot. Thanks for choosing Glen Valley Stables for your riding experience - we had a great time with you guys!
This little girl loves horses! She's learning how to ride and this was her first time out of an arena and in a western saddle. She did really, really well! As did her aunt, who only rides occasionally but sits a horse very nicely. It was an enjoyable hour-and-a-half on the trails
This is Shawn and his family, both resident and visiting, who rode with us last week. They were amazing. No one had much in the way of riding experience but they all had a great time. And Shawn's wife particularly impressed us with her stick-to-it-iveness after a mishap. Thanks for bringing such a positive attitude, everyone! And stay clear of those Harley Davidsons, will you? :-)
Tarek's mom bought a trail ride for him and his girlfriend, Danna, on the occasion of her birthday. They both had a good ride but Tarek wanted more - more speed, that is! So at the end, we put Danna's horse away and then I took Tarek on Traveller for a quick burn up the back trail. Mission accomplished! Thanks for the fun run, Tarek!
