2012 Miles Log

Hey all you endurance riders! There's a thread under trail riding for logging 2012 miles at Logging 2012 Miles How far did you go?, but as an endurance rider, I thought this would be a great thread to kick off our new forum dedicated to endurance riding! Here's my current log:

3/5/2012: 4.50 miles (4.5 total)
3/8/2012: 7.78 miles (12.28 total)
3/11/2012: 6.03 miles (18.31 total)
3/14/2012: 8.66 miles (26.97 total)
3/15/2012: 8.23 miles (35.22 total)
3/17/2012: 6.02 miles (41.26 total)
3/19/2012: 4.16 miles (45.43 total)
3/22/2012: 4.95 miles (50.39 total)
4/8/2012: 10.9 miles (61.28 total)



We're working our way up to our first LD, hopefully at the end of May!

Training my A horse I am sitting at 254 for the year.
He can hold 8 mph for 24 miles. But he was pushing it. I have done one LD and will compete in my first endurance 50 miler at the Biltimore estate in NC on 5 may.
Havent ridden my B horse, but am hoping to do an LD with her in the fall. Hard enough getting one horse in shape. Not sure I can ever get 2. I think my B horse is going to be my long term A horse by next season. My current A horse is pretty laid back and we communicate very well. He's going to end up getting an easy life of a drinking horse I believe.

Got out 3 different times this weekend!

Friday and today, rode Dream. On Saturday, I rode a friend's mare in her first 50 miler (posted pics in its own thread).

The weather was so nice today, Dream even got a bath when we were finished (much to her dismay).

I got to get out twice this week!

Thursday, Dream got new shoes (complete with pour-in pads in preparation for No Frills next weekend), then I hauled to the farrier's place to ride on his home trails (farrier is a bigname endurance person, how lucky am I!!). One of the people with us had time constraints, so we didn't get to ride for much over an hour. I look forward to getting back there and seeing the rest of those trails.









On Saturday, rode again up at Dean's place. The rainy weather held off until the afternoon, so got in a nice ride in the morning. Weather came in as predicted though, so no riding today (just swimming home on the highway). But better to have the rain this weekend than next!!

Thanks to the weather and that I've had quite a few days I had to ride after dark, we've been in the indoor arena a lot. The GPS doesn't work in there all the time, so I don't count those miles. We rode for 2.5 hours the other day and another 1-2 hours earlier this week, so obviously this isn't a reflection of ALL the miles we've been completing, but it does show all our trail riding!

4/11/2012: 8.34 miles (69.64 total)
4/12/2012: 6.81 miles (76.45 total)
4/16/2012: 10.2 miles (86.70 total)
4/18/2012: 5.7 miles (92.72 total)
4/22/2012: 3.05 miles (95.47 total)
4/27/2012: 0.9 miles (96.37 total) - It was really muddy and windy, so we went inside!!
4/28/2012: 7.64 miles (104.01 total)

I am hoping to get out next weekend on a ride with the folks from Houston. An endurance rider there is hosting a ride - not exactly an endurance ride but it should be a blast. Going riding this weekend and I can't wait. I hear Biscuit calling me!

Got to the CTR this past weekend (it has its own thread) and got to ride some gorgeous trails.

But maybe even more exciting, Dream got cleared for riding yesterday!!!! Cannot wait to get back on her.

This holiday weekend was crazy! Dean and I made a whirlwind roadtrip to Georgia to pick up the new-to-us trailer on Fri/Sat (14 hours one way). I got to drive a gooseneck trailer for the first time ever on the way home, which was an interesting learning experience as the rig is massive compared to my 2-horse bumper pull.

This is the rig parked in front of my house. Yes, really, my house is in this picture!!




On Sunday, we went to a park local to my barn as I finally got the all-clear to ride my mare!! We are having our first heat wave of the season, so it was a good opportunity to get in some heat-of-the-day training. Weather was sunny and in the mid-90s (heat index a touch over 100) when we saddled up for our ride. I think I sponged myself as much as I sponged Dream!

Today, we were supposed to do a local hunter pace which is known for its tough terrain, but due to torrential rains overnight, it was canceled as the river crossing was so high as to be unsafe. So we went up the road to the Bucks County Horse Park and rode the trails there. It was again hot as hell (heat index about 110). After the trails, we played on the cross country course a bit (and did people ever stare as we stood in the water jumps sponging!!).
