Preparing my Horses for Skylands

If you’ve been following me on Twitter, then you know that I am at Skylands, my home in Maine.  I am having a wonderful time with some very dear friends hiking, boating, playing games, and eating some very good food.  Acadia National Park is practically in my back yard, with its miles of gorgeous carriage roads.  Whenever I am there for an extended period of time, I like to transport a couple of my Friesian horses to ride along those trails.  Betsy Perreten, my stable manager, along with Gyurme Sherpa, ready the horses and pack them up for their eight-hour journey to the pristine Mount Desert Island.
