Guthrie to Frederick

Jack made the boys ride from their temporary home in Guthrie (he was stationed there as a US Marshall) to Crossroads Ranch because he thought it would discourage the boys from wanting to go on to Santa Fe. But, boy was he wrong.
We are going to have a great adventure as we try to duplicate this first part of the trip on horseback! Thanks Marla for volunteering to be our guide and riding partner as we attempt this ride.
Tuesday will be my first riding lesson in many years! Thanks Jake for volunteering to give us some riding lessons. I am sure that it will be fun for you to be the teacher instead of the student! And, I won't hold it against you when you laugh at me! Just remember I need some encouragement also, because it has been a long time since I have been on a horse---more years than I care to admit in writing!
