Win For Morgan Is Better Than Expected

Tillo – Race Horse to Trail Horse

Trail Riding Off-the-Track Thoroughbred Tillo in Colorado

Tillo is turning out to be an “old soul trail horse”…10,000 feet, he leads 4 other horses across a frozen stream…through chest high willows in a bog! I can’t believe it. He’s not so great in the ring yet but we’re having such a great fall I don’t want to go there yet.

Bring your horses and go trail riding and camp out. Check out the Flying Horse Ranch Web site and give Lydia a call to plan your visit to the ranch.

The mother grew weaker and weaker until she needed two canes just to walk and she spent most of her time in bed.

In trying to relieve some of the family’s stress, the then 13 year old son took up riding dressage at a local stable. . .
