T and Jet were the lead, followed by me with Montero, and Penny with Razzle bringing up the rear (Razzle prefers to be the caboose). We set a pretty fast pace as the footing was very good with lots of places to trot/gait and some really good places to canter. We encountered other equestrians, hikers, cyclists, even a couple of dogs. I didn't take a whole bunch of pics since it's kind of hard to shoot and ride and I only got one picture of Penny, shot over my shoulder and not very good, since she was behind me for most of the ride.
Montero spotted something interesting across the water
According to my Garmin eTrex, we rode for 3 hours and 50 minutes for a total of 10.3 miles with an average speed of just over 3 mph and the fastest speed of 14.9 mph. I was able to clock Montero's running walk - at slow speed it's 6 mph and that was at the end of the ride when he was exhausted. We hadn't planned on riding that long or that many miles but it was a great ride!
