    I am new to all this. But, what is LBL? I live in Lawrenceburg, TN and we are working on next year me being in shape and the horses being ready to do some serious rides. I am disabled myself with Dysautonomia ( with POTS) and EDS type 3. I have a service dog and am training my new colt to respond to when I start having issues too.

    Land Between the Lakes (LBL) is a ky state park on the border with tn . Big time horse trails. Recommend going there sometime with a group of riders. Wonderful park!

    I hope you had a blast! I loved getting the chance to meet you and your pony out there, though I didn't put you two and this thread together until just now! :) I hope you both feel good and aren't too sore today.

    Which horse were you riding Sharpie? And which distance?

    My daughter finished 1st and I placed 2nd. First time ever in the top ten! I used to always get turtle. But I'd been training these two at top ten speeds. So we went at the clip we'd trained at.

    Those trails they put us on were some of the most washed out and eroded in the park. It was hold on and pray during the first miles of each lap. Several horses using boots lost most of them. 40 started but only 28 finished. Most were over time pulls.

    Daughter might be hooked now :)

    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.
