Hoadley was only supposed to be a lunch stop … but Hoadley made it so much more. First, they decorated their hall in pink and had a big Welcome to Hoadley sign. Then they made a hot lunch … which our riders did not show up for. (Turns out the trail was longer than anticipated and the horses were more tired so were moving slowly.) Was Hoadley phased? Not a chance!
When we realized they’d be at least 2 hours late for lunch, Hoadley took lunch to the riders! They suggested a detour that put our riders at a lake where they had a lovely lunch.
Meanwhile, back in Hoadley, they did lunch for everyone from the community and beyond … and the residents of Hoadley (all what … EIGHT of them?) raised over $600 for Wild Pink!!!!!!! I would think that that’s significant when it comes to our contest!
After their late lunch, our riders loaded up and trailered their horses to Winfield.
