2012 Coopers Ride

The members of the Community Draft Horse and Mule Association were invited to hold a wagon ride at the farm of Sam and Barb Cooper near Minerva in Mason County over the weekend of June 23-24, 2012. This is an annual event and we were glad to see that, while Sammy's broken back was still not totally healed, he was able to get around some and joined us for the ride.  The weather was absolutely gorgeous over the entire weekend with high temperatures in the mid 80's (F) and a nice breeze to help keep the horses (and the riders) cool.  Saturdays ride was close to 30 miles as the group went down to Augusta, Kentucky and had lunch in a park located right on the banks of the Ohio River.  Upon returning to the farm on Saturday, there was our usual supper meal with everyone contributing a dish.  Sunday's ride was scheduled to go down to Dover, Kentucky and was only to be about 14 miles.  Unfortunately, your photographer had to go home on Sunday to take care of some family matters and so, we have no photos from Sunday to post.  We hope you enjoy the photos from Friday evening and from Saturday's activities that are available through the links located below.
