Horseback riding this past weekend, come see my photos!

It seems to be snowing quite a bit this winter, here in the Northeast.  I really enjoy spending time outdoors and I feel so fortunate to be able to travel through the countryside on horseback.  Recently, Kevin Sharkey traveled up from New York City to join me for a leisurely ride.  Another day, Betsy, my stable manager and I ventured off of my property and onto the Bedford Riding Lanes trails to visit the nearby John Jay Homestead.

John Jay was one of our nation’s founding fathers and he held more high offices than any other.  After several years of seeing to many international affairs, John Jay became a Governor of the State of New York, settling in Katonah on nearly 800 acres.  Today, 30 acres remain and they, with the original home, are open to the public as an historic site with the Bedford Riding Lanes running through.
