    Fantastic horses?--Nope, confident and trusting riders. Them there boots and coats do not make good swimming tog.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Is White's Ferry still running?

    Back in the 60's I used to take it as a shortcut from VA to MD. I think I remember they stopped running about 10 PM. Then you had the take the beltway.
