I'm just joking. I would have been exhausted after riding 25 miles.

Well I was hoping to have something positive to report, was pretty upset with myself, simple matter was I rode too fast, way too fast came into the first vet check too fast and was simply over time on pulse down. Felt terrible let my horse down. Did have fun on the first loop,, so then looked for a way to redeem my self and headed to Leatherwood mt this weekend.
OMG what a horrendous tough trail, the second yellow loop liked to killed both of us. Back at camp I hear the other riders saying it was harder than the OD. Was almost nowhere I could make up any time only managed about 4.2 mph on that loop. Bo was a hero though ate and drank the whole day. Pulsed down right away at both vet checks headed out to third loop and we were done, ended up leading him jogging walking climbing for about 5 miles, came in to finish about 9 hours, chilled out 500 yards from finnish line at the creek with lots of wet clover and grass, took off halter and let him munch for 20 minutes, walked in for an official finish of 9:21 came through the final check alive and well on the Leatherwood 50.

Think I will be looking for some flat rides for awhile.

Well at least you know what to expect for next time. Well done regardless of the outcome!

Joe, you didn't let him down. You can't win every race. As far as Bo know, he did win. He had a great time I am sure. Hang in there.

Hey Joe, you didn't let him down...it is a learning process. At least you finished!!! I didn't even hardly get out the door! Keep at it and I'll cheer you on heck, I am thrilled that I made a 1.8 mile ride yesterday. I haven't been able to ride due to weather, other folks getting sick, work....rode by myself and will continue to gain confidence in me AND The Biscuit! I know you ride by yourself all the time so I am going to take a page out of your book and go it alone!!

Hopefully the next ride will be a little smoother - you will know what to expect and will train with that in mind.

Cheers!

Something to be said for coming in alive & well! Bravo "to finish is to win"

I am looking for flat trails too for a start and don't want to travel to Florida to find them- was the Bitmore relatively flat?

No the let down part was the first ride at Biltmore estate, where we got pulled at the first check.

I think at Leatherwood we did everything we could to finish. He was a hero and we did it together.
