ACTHA Ride ...La Union Buckle Series, Las Cruces, NM



ACTHA La Union Buckle Series Rides -- December 2012

Once again the ACTHA folks got together and had a competition.  This time, instead of
La Union, NM, it was Las Cruces.  A new venue and it was a gorgeous weekend for riding.

If you're not familiar with ACTHA and are looking for a short trail ride with a few judged obstacles
to ride with friends, these competitions are definitely a great option.

Amy and I actually competed on Sunday (our second ACTHA ride together) and we had
a great time on trail and at most of the obstacles!

I'll be taking photos again at the February competition held at Miller's Equestrian near La Union, NM.

Come on out and volunteer to help, or ride with us!  

Details on that ride can be found also on the ACTHA website, linked above. 


Jim took this really great photo of Amy and Artemisia CF crossing the water obstacle.




This ride was held at Isaack's Ranch, near Las Cruces.  Great old adobe house still on the property.
Made for a great backdrop for photos too!
