Hat Creek Hustle (I got to ride in Cali!!)

This past weekend, I flew out to California to ride a friend's gelding as a babysitter for two greenies' first 50s. I got to ride both days of the Hat Creek Hustle, which took place in the Lassen National Forest in northern Cali. Not only did Magic and I finish his first 2-day 100, both greenies finished their 50s!

It was awesome to see such different terrain, as a lot of the ride was nothing like anything you would find on an east coast ride.

That looks like such a great time! Phantomhorse, your photos and posts always make me so glad that I am getting started in this sport. You make it seem so enjoyable! I hope someday to be as proficient at this as you obviously are

Awsome ride again Dawn! The land sure is different from here, looks like a lot of the trail was flat, is that just maybe what you filmed?

I love going on these rides with you, I watch them over & over because it is just so peaceful and looks like such fun!

Thanks for sharing

It was def hot the day we left (103), but in the mountains it stayed in the upper 80s/low 90s with low humidity, so didn't feel that bad. The sun itself was hot though, so huge difference between shaded and not.

Then I got to come home to 99 and humid as hell. Blech!!
