Worst Trail Ride Ever Give-away

I've had a lot of worst trail rides.  Mostly, though, they're amazing, but any time you put horses and humans together in the wilderness things are going to happen.  Just ask the Bionic Cowgirl - her last worst trail ride involved a plate and nine screws in her right arm.

I have a whole list of worst ride stories.  I could tell you about the time my Barn Boss' horse went to noon on me, or about the time that I did a Hollywood-style dismount, or about the time we had to AirLife a guest out of the forest.  I don't know anyone who has been around horses who doesn't have a worst ride story.

With that in mind, I thought we'd do a little contest for Julie Goodnight's new book, GOODNIGHT'S GUIDE TO GREAT TRAIL RIDING.
Read about how Estes darn nearly broke my leg in half with a gate.

All you have to do to enter is to write a blog post (or two) about your worst trail ride and link up. The contest will run from now until Friday, December 23 at 11:59 pm MST.  The winner will receive an autographed copy of Julie's new book (Julie's autograph, not mine).

Note: Bionic Cowgirl, you are NOT eligible for this give-away.  Neither are you, Beel.

Geez, I had a perfect story for this but I'm a little late, not to mention my writing muse has been on some weird extended vacation.

Merry Christmas!

Dreaming - you won, but my computers won't play nice with your blog to tell you! Please email me with your address so I can get you your book.

Congrats to Dreamer!

I would have played, except that I didn't have a TRAIL ride horror story, ha! Go figure, my prissy English mare loves trails. (Okay fine, except for WATER on trails, but that's what was so awesome about HCR :)

Congrats to the winner! I would have entered, however, I have been a bloggy friend loser and been away from the reading forum. Ugh. I missed so much!

Hope you have a Happy New Years!
