2014 SIDHMA Wagon Train


The 2014 version of the Southern Indiana Draft Horse and Mule Association 9 day annual wagon train got underway from Jim Steven's farm on Saturday, September 13, 2014. The group this year consisted of 5 or 6 wagons along with 4 to 6 outriders each day. On one day, we were short a wagon as Mike's horses decided during the middle of the night to go off on their own and it took most of the next day to find them. This year's wagon train covered about 130 miles and stayed in Perry and Spencer counties. We rode through sections of the Hoosier National Forest, along the Ohio River, and alongside of numerous corn and soybean fields. We stayed at both farms and deer camps along the way changing locations every couple of days. All of our breakfast and dinner meals were enjoyed as a group and prepared by either the camp cooks or by our hosts where we stayed each day. The weather was cool and dry all week and we actually needed our campfires to stay warm this year. The nightly cornhole matches and the frequent rest stops and meal breaks we took along the way were where a lot of the social interaction and the camaraderie occurred. As always, I have tried to capture photos of each day showing the participants and some of the things we saw and did along the way.
