WYANDOTTE COUNTY PARK RIDE OCTOBER 27, 2012
20 riders from KSC descended on Wyandotte County Park Lake after hearing great reviews from Lynn & Jim Cunningham. We were not disappointed! 9+ miles of trails, mainly wooded with few exposures to train tracks , roads, marinas and other indications of civilization. Trails are fairly well maintained for a county park but not well marked, so an experienced trail boss makes the ride more enjoyable. The "fast group" did 8.2 miles around the lake in 2 1/2 hours. We met back up for a great lunch of grilled dogs and brats!
Perry Lake Ride June 9-10, 2012
8 Campers and 5 day riders from Kearney Saddle Club converged on Perry Lake State Park in Ozawkie, KS for a weekend of beautiful weather and miles of horse trails. We had two organized rides, Saturday and Sunday. The Perry Lake State Park staff was extremely helpful and the sites were predominantly shady and most were pull throughs. There was ample room for ground tying or fencing for the horses. Smokey was reported to have said "Nice place for Kansas in the summer". A couple new members joined us as well as some from KS, who only occassionally ride with us. With a large lake, adjacent, there are activities for family member's who may not be horsey. This reporter gives Perry Lake, 80 miles from Kearney, a 2 thumbs up!
From time to time, people tell me, "Lighten up, it's just a horse," or "That's a lot of money for just a horse." They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a horse." Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a horse."Many hours have passed when my only company was "just a horse," but I did not once feel slighted. Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by just a horse," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a horse" gave me comfort and reason to overcome. If you, too, think it's "just a horse," then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise." "Just a horse" brings to my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. "Just a horse" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person. Because of "just a horse" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future. So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a horse" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment. "Just a horse" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. I hope that someday they too understand that it's not "just a horse" but it's the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a woman." So the next time you hear the phrase "just a horse" just smile, because they "just" don't understand.
