    Default Living in the White House is Great, but . . .

    . . . going on a trail ride is even better.

    Did you read the really nice article on Ronald Reagan in the COTH supplement? It was last week. That same photo was in the article. The writing was excellent.

    Missed it. Found the photo in an article about riding at Camp David.

    Mike I for one love looking at the old images you manage to find and bring to the fore. The Kennedys and their pony was a classic too.

    I just wonder about the SS agents that suddenly realized "Oh, crap I have to ride a horse" moment.

    The article in the Chronicle Connection covered that a few weeks back. There was one agent in particular who rode with Reagan a lot and they had a friendship beyond her security duties that revolved around their passion for horses. The article was very nice.

    You can see the obvious love they had for each other in that photo. Thanks for sharing it.

    My cousin's great grandparents were close friends with the Regan's. They were also horse people and it always made me smile looking at the photos of them trail riding together in California.
