e loaded Frosty and Cedar intothe trailer andit took us all of 20-25 minutes to be in thepark and another few min-utes to park and get themunloaded.One of the primary rea-sons we like Estes Park isthe above sentence. We loveto ride, and we have as gooda place to ride as there isanywhere.It’s easy on the horses.They don’t mind riding inthe trailer, or at least they load up very easily. In fact,when you start them in,you’d better be ready to go with them.Frosty is first and he stepsin, takes the two or threesteps to the front of the trail-er, turns and moves his butt over so I can tie his leadrope where he won’t step on,or over it and simply closethe divider. Occasionally, Ihave to say, “get over,” but usually not. Then I offer hima piece of cake, but he willprobably not take it. Once ina while, he indulges me andeats it.Catherine will have Cedar at the door, I get hold of therope, pivot and tie the leadrope for her. That’s how quickly she loads. Shealways eats the cake I offer. They stand, swishing their tails as we curry them downand spray them with insect repellent. I’m not sure why  we do that. It doesn’t last  very long and they seem toswish their tails, stomp their feet and wiggle their hide torid themselves of flies after they’re spayed just as muchas before we spray. If they get a sweat up, the repellent seems to disappear entirely. As long as they don’t sweat too bad, I can smell the bugspray, so at least I feel like we’re doing some good.Frosty has probably beensprayed several hundreds of times and acts like he’s nev-er had it done before. He tol-erates my attentions, but hehas to move around a bit  while I spray him.Catherine sprays Cedar,gets some on her hands and wipes Cedar’s ears, all over her face and that mare of hers just leans into her likeshe’s cuddling up to Cathe-rine. It’s fun to see. When we’re saddled up,it’s like those two horseshave just been waiting on us. They stand well while wemount and they don’t moveuntil we let them, but assoon as we squeeze our knees, we are on two horsesthat want to go somewhere.Let me tell you, if you’venever had the joy of it, ridinga horse that doesn’t need tobe urged every step of the way is wonderful. I don’t liketo have to push a horse when I’m riding. I don’t think there is anything moretiring than being on a horsethat you have to kick onestep and smack it with thereins the next. We don’t withFrosty and Cedar, and goshit’s nice.Ride Easy Pards.....Vic<mtyodeler@hotmail.com>
