I went to the annual Chattahoochee Trail Horse Association Poker Ride this past Saturday at Jake Mountain in north Georgia. Took Chief, my appaloosa gelding, since he hadn’t been ridden in a while. The CTHA does a great job in running this event and it’s for a worthy cause – trails maintenance. The cold weather spell this weekend caused the turnout to be lower than expected, but the sun was out and the trails were dry. The 3 hour ride was just what my boy needed and we had a wonderful time. The CTHA has turned into a great riding club over the last 15 years or so and we trail riders are lucky to have such a dedicated group looking out for our trails.
