I love horses, so I was quite happy to drive slowly behind the patrol, while the traffic behind me blew their horns for me to pass them and get on with it.....but.....since I had no intention of doing so I snapped these photos instead.
I kept a safe distance so as not to spook the horses (even though they're trained to ride with vehicular traffic.)
The patrol rode two abreast in a somewhat tight formation, and were rather chatty.
As they approached the stop sign, the leader held his right hand up in a fist to indicate that they should come to a complete stop.
They made a left turn, while Beast and I made a right turn and continued on our way.
It was a lovely day to be outdoors horseback riding, and I felt a bit envious that I could not join them.
