Each spring we have the honor of celebrating Patriot’s Day. You may not be aware of this holiday, as it is not one of the more popular holidays in Arizona. On the other hand, if you lived in New England, it is a big deal. People in the New England area pause and commemorate the Battle of Lexington and Concord. The schools, banks, post offices, and most businesses close for the day to honor the “Midnight Ride of Paul Revere”. That is the infamous ride when Paul Revere rode horseback warning the colonists that “The Red Coats are Coming!”
The temperatures in New England in the spring are reported to be quite chilly, with the high temperature in the low 50’s. It was probably a pretty brisk ride for Paul Revere that night. He may have been wishing the coat he was wearing was a little thicker, or the horse he was riding was a little faster.
Horses in the Prescott area get to enjoy a much warmer Spring than Paul endured in New England. In fact, the Prescott area can enjoy temperatures in the high 60s in April. Many riders are able to comfortably ride as early as February in the Prescott area (numerous riders enjoy riding year round). The trails this time of year are especially beautiful as new spring growth is appearing. The popular Groom Creek Horse camp opens their trails on May 1st (Click Here for More information on Groom Creek)
