HORSEBACK RIDING Shenandoah National Park Luray, Virginia

Expedition Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller

Date: September 15, 2021

Enjoyed a one-hour horseback ride from Skyland Stables down the Skyland-Big Meadows Canyon Horse Trail and back. Our guide was Jillian who was born in Texas. My horse “Sunshine” followed Rosie who was astride “Jasmine”. Rosie was one cute looking cowgirl. Jillian told me an interesting urban legend. The man that originally built Skyland in the 1930’s used to operate a still. When he heard the sheriff was coming, he would dismantle the still and bury the moonshine. Rumor has it there are hundreds of bottles of moonshine buried underground around the horse stable area. One horse (photo#3) in the stable had lost one eye to a disease.
