: What is the meaning of " rides off into retirement on her new horse " and " Happy trail " in following sentence ?
: Before we go, we want to thank Nancy Smart, our editor since the beginning. As Nancy rides off into retirement on her new horse, Taj, we wish her happy trails.
I am guessing that the reference is to this song from a U.S. cowboy series:
by Dale Evans Rogers
Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you, 'till we meet again.
(Closing theme to the 1950s television program: The Roy Rogers Show.)
