STR AIGHT TALK
When did you last go horseback riding? (Inspired by the RCMP Musical Ride in Maxville.)
Stella Menard, Apple Hill:
On Friday, I competed at the Russell Fair doing a barrel race. It was my first time competing.
Peter Jack, Cumming Road:
It was in Alberta in 2006 visiting my wife’s cousin who supplies stock to the Stampede. We were out at their ranch and took a half a day and did a trail ride up into the foothills.
Anika Marsh, Dunvegan:
The last time was last year when I rode with my stepsister. The horse's name was Scout.
Bianca Rothschild, Fassifern:
Last year when I went on Oreo. But the horse got scared and I almost fell off.
Shyanne Robertson, Martintown:
Last Wednesday. I went riding in Summerstown. I own two horses and they are called Ginger and Jack. Horseback riding is my favourite thing to do.
Jim Tilker, Dunvegan:
It was 50 years ago when I was the best man at a wedding in Harriston. The groom introduced me to Jeannie, a quarter horse, and said, “Jump on.” I held onto the saddle as she went out and cut and cut. It scared the hell out of me.
