2013 Gaines Ride

Mike and Carrie Gaines invited the members of the Community Draft Horse and Mule Association to Columbiana Farm in Paris Kentucky over the weekend of June 15-16, 2013 for a weekend wagon ride. Columbiana Farm is a thoroughbred boarding farm managed by Homer Rader, club president and brother-in-law to the Gaines'. The weather was absolutely great with moderate temperatures and no rain. Seven wagons and buggies joined the ride on Saturday and four wagons rode on Sunday. There was plenty of great scenery to enjoy both days with the beautiful horse farms that are scattered throughout Bourbon and Fayette counties here in the bluegrass area of central Kentucky. The only problem that arose on Saturday was a broken tongue on the new wagon just built by Sam Cooper. However, even that turned out to be less of a problem than usual as it broke right in front of the farm of club member Tom Green. Tom was kind enough to allow us to use his well equiped shop and, after a little bit of welding, the group was off to continue the ride. As usual, there was a fine group dinner and a lot of fellowship enjoyed on Saturday evening. Thanks to Mike and Carrie and also to Homer and Glenda for putting on a great event!
