Rabbit Run 50 miler

This weekend, Dream and I trekked to New Jersey for the Rabbit Run 50 mile endurance ride.

The weather was cool with temps in the low 40s and a stiff, cold wind (someone said wind chill was in the 20s, but I didn't want to know). The temp dropped enough overnight to have everything frozen in the morning. I picked a good inch thick ice layer out of Dream's bucket in the morning. But it actually seemed fairly nice, compared to the weather we have been training in!!




Jersey is the land of sand and pine trees. This year was no different.




Got to share some trail with a big name.. this is Meg Sleeper (and her husband Dave). Meg was riding Cadie, the mare she competes internationally.




No ride photographer, so a friend tried to get a picture. The ponies were much more interested in getting back out on trail than in posing!




The cranberry bogs are a welcome distraction from the endless pine trees and sand.

Dream was her usual rockstar self and we placed 4th. Not a bad start to our season!!

My focus this year is going to be 100s. Hoping to get through 2, maybe 3 if the universe allows. What are everyone else's goals for this year?

Sounds like Walking horse weather, Emma's injury in Dec, really mesed up my plans. Hoping to make Star tannery. We shall see, weather has been really nasty

No Frills is next on our list as well. Hope to see you there!!

And I don't even want to talk about weather, with yet more snow forecast for tonight/tomorrow (could be up to a foot, though nobody seems to know for sure).

Thanks for sharing your ride Dawn! Dream is such a cutie!

I sure am restless having to sit here & watch instead of being out riding!! Chivas has a cold and Drambie is still totally un-ridable. Dang I need a new horse, a nice fast Arabian...

Sounds awesome! I'm doing my first LD next month, then will go from there. I also have to move across the state and start a new job, so maybe just a ride or three this year...

Thanks for sharing Dawn. Looks like you and Dream had a nice ride.

My goal is to be able to ride faster than a jog this year. If I can get my balance back would be a start! Working on it.

AnitaAnn - my friend has a nice little Arabian mare for sale. Sababba is a very nice trail horse that has been trained in dressage and is excellent on trails. She knows how to bow and will lay down on command for you to mount. She is a great little mare. I would love to see her go to a good home!! We just love Sababba.

She sounds absolutely lovely! Would they want Drambuie? Before I can get another horse, I need to find him a home...space is limited.

Congrats on the 4th place finish! Our goalthis year is the 100 miler at Blackwater Boogie in November. I have several 50 milers coming up and some 75 milers and then on to the 100! We just do not have that many 100 milers down here.
