Vintage Photo Friday

Alice On Prancing Pony
Alice Matlack (ne Holly) on Prancing Pony at the Ramona Turkey Day festival in 1937.
The women in Walker's family are all a little horse mad. It started when they moved to Ramona, California and suddenly everyone on the Ranch had a horse to ride.

Liz & Dusty
This is Walker's mother, Liz Matlack on Dusty in Cass City, Michigan, 1961.
It continues to this day. His aunt Pick has horses and when Liz comes to visit they go riding. They even went riding in Scotland this summer.

Charlie is scared
Walker's brother, Charlie Hughes in 1982.
It did not continue into this generation so well. I doubt Charlie would cry if put on a horse today, but neither Walker nor his brothers are really that into horses.

  1. Wonderful horsey pix!

    Oooo....I LOVE the Ramona Festival. We went a few years ago. I described the Pageant to my Dad. He said he was there in 1937 and it sounded EXACTLY the same!!!
