    Phantomhorse--Is that a halter, or a really fancy bridle? :O

    Today was an unexpected treat.. I had planned to spent the morning with the farrier and the afternoon/evening at work.. but the riding gods smiled down upon me and I got to ride instead! The farrier had a truck issue and had to reschedule for next week. Work called and told me not to come in, as people were canceling left and right due to approaching storm #2. I almost cartwheeled out to the barn.

    Today was the perfect winter riding day. It was 19 when I left the barn, 23 when I got home. The sun was shining and there was very little wind. Yesterday's storm #1 left 4ish inches of snow, so the footing was better than its been in months. I didn't bother with the boots and off we went.

    Really fancy bridle with a rope halter under it.

    Dream goes in an s-hack from Taylored Tack (which is owned by my friend Mandy, who hand-makes everything she sells!):

    Are you going to the Barefoot Run at LBL?? If you are, I hope to see you there!

    Jumping in too... I took the month of January off, and am ready to get going again! However, the weather has other plans... I've been out for short bareback rides in the snow a couple times this week, but no conditioning yet. The footing is sloppy mud over frozen ground, I don't want to risk an injury trying to do too much. I am getting antsy to get in some real riding! Last year I switched horses, and am now riding my husband's ranch bred paint, who was doing surprisingly well conditioning last year. My plan is a LD this spring and hopefully a 50 in the fall.

    We will be there! Not sure which day I am going to ride yet. I have reserved the campsite already, ride manager said they full up fast.

    On the taylored tack, I just bought the whole setup. Not only is this tack gorgeous, it is super functional and very well made. Mandy was also a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended here as well!.
    Love the earshots phantom!

    I'm glad some of you have been able to ride! I have been the ultimate slacker on these threads lately...so busy with college & LIFE. I haven't ridden outside much this week due to the weather, but Selena & I did have a couple great lessons in the indoor--which I totally count towards my conditioning

    A picture of us during our dressage/jumping lesson...as if we didn't feel small enough already!

    Hoping to get riding outdoors once all this snow melts and the roads thaw...of course we have a snow day today with 14+ inches...Grrrrrr

    AND.....30 days until we drive out to pick up my filly! I am BEYOND excited!
