Ridin-Hy Ranch 2007

In August, Pat and I went with the kids and grandkids up to the ranch in the Adirondacks of New York. We had a great time, enjoying hiking, horseback riding, fishing, softball, tennis and many of the other activities provided at the Ridin-Hy Ranch.

One afternoon, all the kids were deputized to form a posse and save the lifeguard who was kidnapped by the Indians.

Sofia Lesson
Giselle and Sofia took daily riding lessons. Sofia is old enough to join the slow trail rides, and will
be able to join the intermediate rides next year. During this lesson she's learning to trot her horse.

The lilly-pads ensured we lost more than we landed, but we had a great time with lots of action.
