Wednesday 9 March 2011 –
At the end of every Cracker Trail Ride, there’s a parade in Fort Pierce. At least, this year, I made the parade. Would like to have caught up with the group as the horses and riders made their way across the state. Maybe next year.
Florida Cracker Cowmen got their name because they cracked their long whips to herd up the cattle.
The Florida Cracker Association takes to the trail annually, and camps at ranches along the way…
Appeared they had a fine time, ending up at the bar, horses and all.
