When I got back from the Leatherwood Mt 50, I felt like I had been on a 3 day drunk.

Not sure where you are but come to Broxton SC, on 7 July. I will be leading a new rider and be on my new horse. Just going for a completion on the 30 mile LD. It is a evening/nightime ride. On fairly easy terrain.

I was certainly very happy to get to bed Sunday night!!

Amazingly, I am slightly tight in my left calf today.. but that is it.

In years past, I was barely mobile on this day (day 2 post ride is always worst for me).. so no idea if I am finally getting fit or if I am in for a world of hurt later in the week. I hope its the former, as I am flying to California to do 2 days of 50s this weekend!!

That sounds like fun! Thank you! I am about 4 hrs from Greenville SC, in Alabama.

I don't have July's work schedule right now, so I am not sure if I will be off. I need to get riding but I have been swamped this week. I worked 42 hrs in 3 days, and I have my Boards Monday which I have to pass!!

Once that is out of the way I can ride more!

We willl hope for the getting fit, but really, you must already be totally fit to even do half of your killer schedule.

I always say riding horses is a masochistic sport, and I think you have proved my theory!!

I thought Dream was an Arabian but I guess I just needed your confirmation. Thanks for that. You both make an incredible team. She is in beautiful shape. What a lovely girl! All the best for your future rides!

What an amazing thing to do...my long term goal is to ride endurance...I will look forward to continuing to follow your experiences on HF, and am working to learn all that I can presently about the sport.

The part that really appeals to me is the degree of trust required between horse and rider, not to mention the faith one must have in oneself and one's skill/horse's skill/preparation, (& in God, too, as far as my faith is concerned) to get you through safely!! To even THINK about winning or coming close is just a wonderful bit of icing on the cake, IMO!

You all have the utmost of respect from me for what you are doing (& doing SO WELL!!). Very best of luck in all future endeavors!!

ETA: Amazing photos and video, Phantom! Thank you so much for posting them!!
