​January 14, 2018


​It was overcast with a touch of rain. Not the brightest prospect for a trail ride. Undaunted, nine riders appeared from the mist to explore Barr Hammock a newer trail riding destination near Micanopy. We were not disappointed.

The trail head was primitive. No water, no bathroom facilities, and limited parking. Once we hit the trail we found double wide paths, of hard packed sand. The ground was fairly flat with some hardwoods and other areas of low growth pines, and scrub.

The traces of critters were apparent, but no deer or hogs showed up to greet us. It was not as heavily traveled as comparatively Pruitt is with wildlife.

We made the acquaintance of Amy Hays and one of her daughters recently arrived in our area from Oklahoma, who rode with us. Welcome!

All in all it made for a bit chilly, but enjoyable outing, worth doing again on a warmer day.

All horses should have an ID tag with your last name and cell phone number. You could use a regular ID dog tag on the bridle, or halter bridle. I use a mare collar, like a dog collar, which has a small brass plate with my last name and cell #. They make these collars at the Tack Shack.
