Last week, my family visited “Pigasus.” Pigasus is Brenda Morgan’s horse ranch in Auberry, California. In November, I photographed Brenda and the ranch. (The ranch is not named PEGasus.) On Presidents’ Day weekend, we visited again.
Brenda also instructs local 4H students. When I was in high school, I never participated in 4H. Farming was out in the country. (The country was only a few miles away.) Agriculture has changed a great deal since I was a child. It is comforting to know that people still connect with animals.
For those of us who live in the Bay Area, this foothill retreat was both relaxing and affordable. We have priced other horse riding lessons closer to Oakland, and the cost is not the same. Perhaps the service is just as good, but we hope that Brenda starts a summer camp.
