Bonfire of the Venturers

Our happy Crew gathered at Dan Rarey's barn for a little horsing around this evening. Dan introduced us to a 31-year-old mare in honorable retirement. She was a real love sponge. He also has two riding horses and a Shetland pony. He got his own gaited horse saddled up for us and most of our Venturers got to ride a bit.

Then we fired up the bonfire and roasted hot dogs and had other goodies. We played some ping pong in the barn. It was just a relaxing, fun evening.
