A Thank-you to Land Owners

Yesterday my two girlfriends and I delivered 8 baskets of goodies to the landowners that have allowed us access to their property all these years.

Their reactions were of total surprise and then very touched. Took some time as each one wanted to talk to us about everything from where we have ridden to how excited they were when they saw all the horses.

All of them have told us that we are welcome to ride on their property anytime and as often as we want. So kind and generous of them.

We are thinking of doing an old fashioned cookout for them all next year to allow more time for chatting, as that seemed to be the most fun part for them and us!

Two more baskets to deliver Wednesday, and looking forward to it.

Such a small thing to do, to show how much we value and appreciate the privilege of riding on their land.

What are some ways you show appreciation for being allowed to ride on someone's property? Would love any ideas to add to our possibilities.

That is absolutely fantastic. That's so great for you guys to do that - it's such a small thing, but all you need is one crotchety person saying GTFO my property and you can be screwed for riding!

I will definitely consider that any time I find myself in a situation where I'm being permitted to use other peoples property. Actually, Shay-las neighbor permits her the use of his 3 acre pasture because he doesn't have horses, we should do it for him!

MM, what stunned me was how appreciative they were for such a small token. Goes to show that people are often under-appreciated.

To be truly honest, my friends and I probably enjoyed yesterday more than the land owners!

One of the owners told me to cut any trails I wanted on his land. Wants me to keep him posted on any goings on out there that shouldn't be. Wanted to know about the wildlife goings on and all that.

He got the biggest chuckle over someone walking on one of the trails. They told him (this was right after the big club ride) that there were all kinds of moose tracks and droppings! Steve thought that was the funniest thing, seeing as how most of the "moose tracks" had shoes on!
