2012 Spring Trail Ride Lee County Ky

The Lee County Ky Spring 2012 Horse Back Trail Ride was the weekend of May 11-13 this year. Being the weekend of Mothers Day, there was not as many riders as usual, of course the pending rain might have had something to do with the decreased number of horses and riders. But we went, no matter the date or weather! It is my favorite county trail ride that we go to in East Ky

We set up camp on Friday evening and then set out to explore the campground and to see what other horses and riders had ventured to Lee County to ride the Walkers Creek and Hells Creek ride. Riddick met up with his bud Grant on the road and they followed us to the Lee County Saddle Club to begin their weekend ride.

I didn’t get as many pictures or videos as usual. I’ve been taking it easy with my Nikon Coolpix camera. This one has been at the bottom of Paintsville Lake, in Paint Creek, dropped on various roads, left at the barn overnight to draw moisture, and other places not good for a camera, but it keeps on going! mmm hmm, love my lil Nikon camera!

Here is what I did get…..

Knott Co Fall Horseback Trail Ride 2011

FINALLY, I present the first video I put together using clips taken with my trusty Nikon Coolpix camera. Little things while living life on Paradise Mountain have taken up alot of my time, but here is the FIRST video I put together from the famous 2011 FALL KNOTT COUNTY HORSEBACK TRAIL RIDE!

Knott County Ky Horse Trail Rides are THE largest horseback trail riding events in Ky. This Spring and Fall equine event is anticipated by horse lovers from all over the USA. Many come if they don’t ride a horse, wagon, buggy, mule, donkey, or if they don’t even own a horse, but for love of the great outdoors, the 1000’s of like minded people that camp at Knott Co campgrounds, to get together with good friends, good camp food, and for the beautiful scenery in the Appalachian Hills of Ky. Knott Co Trail Rides are held twice a year in Knott Co – Hindman Ky.

Winters Lake Ride

This was a fantastic day for horse back riding, so we did. This ride is what we call ‘The Lake Ride’ cause that’s what we are riding around, the Paintsville Lake. This is a huge lake, and deep. The head of this lake starts just right over the ridge from my home. We take our time and turn it into an all day ride. This ride is especially a good one for me… with the waterfalls and cliffs that are a never ending site.
