Aidol's Story....... Tales from the Trails........ the Wreck

Part 1

When I'd first heard all the commotion behind us, I had turned my horse to see what was happening. As the horses in our group fanned out in the small clearing to make way for the approaching riders, I watched things unfolding, not really believing I was seeing what I was. There wasn't a shred of concern from the approaching group. All they could think about was getting ahead, faster and faster. You would have thought we were riding some kind of race instead of playing a poker hand.

The horses in our group got so spread out many were off the beaten path.
