Yup...Jesse decided that Bronco was being not going to be "The Boss" of him and just said "NOFUCKINGWAY!" ( Jesse does not have a cuss jar!) However...Jesse was ever so gentle in his turn around and gave Bronco plenty of notice to stay in the saddle with him. Some horses would have taken advantage of this opportunity and spun around so fast you would have air beneath you! Good boy Jesse! Unfortunately as I was filming Bronco's 2nd PERFECT execution of this hill I hit the wrong button. Take my word for it...she did the 2nd try great!!!
We finally make it back on trail and Bronco was very happy about this!
In fact it is Bob Hope's house overlooking Palm Springs!!! It is still used for events/fundraisers.
Bronco Betsy had a cocktail party to attend and as usual...we were running late. So after we get off the trail into the sandy wash we tell Bronco that we have to lope to get back on time. Well she said for us to go ahead and she would just walk in. I then explained to her that...Jesse would not stay behind for her if we left ( he would for me or Bossman but Bronco may have a teeny weeny problem with that) so she "cowgirledthefuckup" ( 25 cents in the cuss jar!) and loped most of the way home with the Bossman coaching her along the way. When there is not a trail Jesse likes to try and race sometimes. He had her keep Jesse right in Slick's behind! Bronco was so proud of her self afterwards...so were we!!! Ride time 5 hours!
Your Desert Rose!
