The Chaps Riding Club puts on a great annual ride to support a local nonprofit. This year is the Springfield Humane Society. The ride starts and ends at the beautiful Wellwood Orchard. They are gracious enough to let us all park our trailers and stay for a lunch at the end. My friend Muriel and I will be taking Crystal and Missie respectively. It will be our first large group outing with these mares that is not a horse show. The weather looks great!
