Off to the Races

Yesterday morning, en route to the office, I spotted a truck towing a horse trailer down the freeway. I slowed to check it out:

Washington plates. Camper in the truck bed. Portable corral panels. Husband asleep in the passenger seat. Gray Arabian muzzle poking through the trailer window. Blue bumper sticker proclaiming: To Finish is to Win!

Definitely endurance riders on their way to Old Selam. Excitement stirred as I thought, for the millionth time, I want to do that!

...and this time, I get to!
