Smokehorse--Love the ear pics. Don't worry, I'm jealous of'um too ;)

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Smokeyhorse, where is this place you ride? It cannot be too far from me...

Horsesaplenty, good luck with that work! I have a gelding who drags his rear toes for no reason.

Sharpie, YAY!! I will be easy to find...S L O W, in the back of the pack. I need to get over to LBL and at least get a feel for the place!

My GPS, according to UPS, is supposed to land here today!! I will probably be starting a WTH@@!! Does this thing do....thread. That sucker better have good instructions!!

I am going to ride today, since it did NOT snow like they said it would, and it did NOT get as cold as they said it would, and the SUN is SHINING!!

GreenTree, did you order the 310XT? I have the 305 and it's a really fun tool to use.

I enjoy reading about everyone's rides. It will be many weeks (or months) before I can do any real training. Meanwhile, I take dressage lessons twice a month and get in shape with cross-country skiing and Pilates. Might just as well enjoy the winter...

Smokeyhorse, thanks! I live just north of Bowling Green. Not too far.

Eole, it came YESTERDAY!! I tried to hook it up before I rode yesterday, but the light was fading TOO fast, and I had to look at the directions at every step, sot through parts, etc., so I gave up and rode!

I am sure I will have plenty of frustrated questions about it in a few days!!!

Sounds like you are close to where I am.....i'm about an hr south/southeast of Nashville. I hope to join this thread next year, when my boy is old enough. I have a coming 3 yo reg. Arabian colt who I plan to train for endurance.

Is anyone else getting really irritated with this worst winter ever that will not end!?!
Our weather has been awful, with more on the forecast. I haven't done anything but ride bareback in months. The footing is slick surface mud over frozen ground. And I just realized the ride I'm planning this spring is in 10 weeks and I haven't done a conditioning ride since early December (good thing I'm not planning on the April ride!) Usually by this time of year it is spring here. I guess I'm going to have to start hauling out to condition on graveled trails... if only they would stop salting the roads so I could use my trailer without rotting the frame! Come on spring! I need to ride!

TheOtherHorse, which ride are you planning? It is a little irritating, but better 34 than 106 for me. I do not know where Crestwood is.

Cobra, HOW is that cute boy of yours doing?

I heard there is a "downed tree marking ride" tomorrow at Mammoth Cave. It is the Back Country Horsemen putting it on. Is anybody planning to go?

I could not find anything about it on their website, but I don't think I can go anyway. I MAY go up to Mammoth Cave today, if I can figure out my HRM/GPS.

I'm just northeast of Louisville. Planning on doing the LD at Indy Run in May (previously Maumee Valley).

I could handle the cold if the footing were better! I just don't want to risk injury riding fast on the slick stuff around here. It is a thin layer of mud over frozen ground, nothing to dig into for traction. Yuck.

Cool! I have been in the Central region for so long that I forget here I have to check rides in more than one region!! Iwill check on that ride.

I rode 6.16 miles before my battery died on the GPS, so I probably did 9.5 miles today.
