“The Ride” by Joe Herrinton Joe Herrington is both storyteller and cowboy poet. After growing up in Texas, he spent some time in the Army and as a Scoutmaster. His time there grew both his love and his talent for storytelling. He now lives in California but has not forgotten his love for the west. In the poem entitled “The Ride” he tells of a young man and an old man. The young man decides to introduce his senior to a newfangled thing known as an atv. After the experience, however, the old man decides he’d rather stick to horseback.
