Riding on the Bisti Badlands

Recently I went riding out on the Bisti Badlands in Northern NM. I was riding Biro my 7-year-old Missouri Foxtrotter/Paso Fino cross.  She is a lovely mare with an excellent temperament.  Like many of you, I work full time so I don’t have as much time as I might like to ride so I am mindful when I go out into an open space, and I like to know what I am getting myself into.
