This weekend, DH and I took the boys over to New Jersey for the last AERC ride of the season in the NorthEast - Mustang Memorial. The ride is held in the pine barrens of central New Jersey, which is known for pine trees and sand (go figure ). This year had a new ride camp and new trails, but there was no lack of the Jersey norms!
Ready to go Saturday morning, sporting their silly clips:
Warming up with a friend and her daughter, who was doing her first 50!
Riding with DH and a friend on her youngster:
Trail is open:
No natural water stops, but tanks and hay were out every 5 miles or so:
We all had a blast and got the completions we were aiming for (and didn't get run over by any of the people competing FEI). Next up is the Carolina 100 over Thanksgiving weekend!!
