Grace loved being on the horse and commented several times how she was standing up. Since Sadie lagged behind there were times when she needed to trot to catch up with the group. Grace's giggles during those minutes were priceless!
We had a fun time on our horses. I learned a little about the Saguaro cactus which will be the subject of another post. The entire time I kept imagining how difficult it must have been to be a pioneer crossing this terrain in a covered wagon. You have to wonder why anyone would attempt this and how they survived in such primitive, dangerous conditions.
