I rode my red dun QH in the 50 on Friday, but I was the vet in the light pink shirt and red cap on Saturday. We finished in boots, never had one come off in the ride, but you're right, ALL the trails at LBL are terrible near camp- they're muddy and worn in badly. Trail 3 (the start of the blue and black checker and pink) is always like that, year round. LBL is always busy with horses when the weather is nice. I don't know if the loops you were on went through the Blue Hole, but that is another area that tends to get pretty bad with mud and wear during the busy season. I was surprised it wasn't worse while we were there.
