Thanks for the ride

A rider runs to the pickup site after taking a horse-drawn sleigh ride around the Washington County Fairgrounds Saturday during the annual Manes and Tails sleighing event. Horses ranging in size from small Shetland ponies to large draft horses like the Shires pulling this sleigh took riders around a circular course north of the fairgrounds arena. Besides sleigh rides, visitors could judge both the horse-drawn sleighs and hand-pulled sleds. (Gazette staff photo by Erik Sandin)
