Default Fun day at Campbell Valley Park

I made it out again to the park for my ritual 11k hike around the outer trail. This time was extra special as my wife got out on a horse to join Shadow (my dog) and I.

Here are a few shots I took of my wife..

Wow - Nice pics! Good to see you both get out. Is that what Natalie has to do to keep up with you? <img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

I'd rather be hiking!

Great Idea Jim, bet you still out walked the horse.....

Nat looks a little nervous but I think thats because your standing there taking pictures......... Soon it will be time to get Nat out on the Mountain trails with you hiking along side. Sounds like fun to me.

This weekend Debi and I went up to Chadsey Lake on Sumas mountain, now there's a challenge! Loads of fun, except for the narrow rock edges we had to manouver the horses around. Yeehaw! We are going to have to take you and Nat up there soon, Nat on a horse of course.

As for the Helmut (not hard hat) but works the same way, Any horse or mule you ride, you should be wearing a helmet and not a cowgirl hat. Safety is riders first issue. Riding a bike requires the same, in fact most riding places won't allow anyone on a horse without one, would really put a damper on their insurance.

Anyother thought, is this:
My riding partner Debi was riding the trails 14 years ago with her husband, He was not wearing a helmut, the horse he was on was young and not as experienced on rocks or bog and tripped several times, the horse didn't throw him but the horse fell and he went flying off, Needless to say if he was wearing a helmut, he would be alive today.

Now in reply to Hiking_Nut's comment
"Hey Jim,.....earning spouce points ?"

Good job Jim! At least he knows how to keep his marriage alive and kicking! Besides, if you ever met Nat, you would see what a great person she is, and a good sport too! Debi and I would love to have her around on our rides anytime, hmmmmmmm, time to buy her a horse! Or at least lease one out for the summer! yeehaw!

The Only Place to be is on a Horse! (Or a Mule)

What a sad story about Debi's dh.

Last weekend we were biking the multi-use trails in South Langley. A couple of properly-attired young ladies were trying to get one of the horses over the step-over metal gates. It took a good 10 minutes to get that young and frightened horse over. We needed to get on the trail, and they were just coming off. I'm glad we didn't meet her one the trail as there were 8 of us.

She did quite well. She's likely going again this week. Did the trail again this morning. New best at 1:23:30. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

I agree with you about the helmut too. Crazy not to! You never know what could happen.

I think a helmet probably a good idea. Never used one when I was horse riding or bike riding when I was a kid but wouldn't be out without my bike helmet now.

See you on the mountain!

Always wear mine on the bike as well and I have just started wearing one when roller blading.
I received a letter from a 36 year old woman that took a small fall while blading.
I have had a few spectacular wipe-outs but this lady had just a simple fall backwards.
The story of the resulting concussion made me cringe. She lost her sense of smell , had dizzy spells, blurred vision , and vomiting for weeks. All just so she could look COOL.
Oh I might add this gal is an aerobics instructor , is very fit ,and has excellent reflexes.
This was the second such story I received that month, so now I don't go without one.


No trail is long with good company.
