We started our trail in front of post office at South Lake Tahoe but before we went to see if the next trail was passible. We got one third the way up and hit solid snow. So plan B was put in place for the next rider. While waiting for Nevada rider we found out he was bucked off and we went on a search and rescue mission to find his runaway horse. We heard the rider was fine but went to the hospital to be checked out. The fire department got a call about a loose horse and gathered the troops to pick up the horse and retrieve the machia. Handed to the first CA rider and on he went. By the time I got the mail my horse Harmony was a bit tuckered out after all the previous riding at 7000 ft altitude. We had flat trails then 1 1/2 miles uphill. We got up the hill a bit slow at times but always forward. Handed off to the next rider 15 min ahead of time. Great ride.
