I cannot wait for the ride to start. I am so tired of training. Thankfully, this has been the most mild winter in memory around here in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The riding has been very tolerable. Even though I have had to dress warmly, I haven’t finished too many rides with frost bitten hands and feet. I even had one extremely memorable training ride, coming upon a full-blown fox hunt with baying hounds, regally dressed equestrian riders blowing bugles. It was too bad I didn’t have a camera because the pictures would have great. Don’t worry, the fox got away. The Chester County open spaces allowed me to loop around and see the hunt progressing for about an hour. I asked one of the strangler riders when they would catch the fox, and he informed me that they wouldn’t that day, and in fact most of the time, the fox escapes.
Anyway, here is a photo of my home office where I have my other job.
