After a fun and full season of horseback riding in Grand Teton Park and Yellowstone Park, Kevin and I are off on our own R & R cross country ride all our own, setting out with two saddle horses and two pack horses.
It’s rare for a summer to go by without at least one dusting of snow on the wildflowers. All across the valley vegetable gardens, carefully planted and attended, some even sang to (it’s true), are covered in sheets and old blankets, waiting for the clouds to lift, and sunshine.
A lot of work goes into getting ready for the summer riding season. One of the most important tasks is to make sure all the tack: saddles, blankets, bridles, breast collars, and saddle bags are clean and ready for riding.
