    Happy anniversary Rick. Hope that you get some time to do a belated celebration.

    Hunter, hope all goes well with the sale. I am sure he will be a good boy.

    Most treks are organised and used to raise money for charities or school projects. The one I was going to attend in Kaitaia is for the local pig hunting club but I'm having second thoughts. I have found out it comprises about 3 of hours beach riding then some road and forest. To much beach I prefer bush or forest to keep the interest up. For the cost involved in transport I may be flagging that one. I live 10 minutes from a very long beach so can ride that any time I want. The next one orginsised is in November That is to rais money for disabled riders and is generally a very good ride One needs to be fit for that one. A few photos of past events.

    There is a trek going on called the great New Zealand trek its 5 days at a time. That is one I have missed as its about to go into the south island. Google Great New Zealand Trek there is some good info.

    Its raining today and we need it. I had another call on Stella last night, sounded promising. She was trying to get over today but with the weather turning to Poo I doubt it. She also asked if I would get on Stella after 4 month lay off and prove what I say. That may be interesting, I have no problem with Stella, however I dispatched Rambo yesterday and I don't think Stella was to impressed with me, also the wind is going to get up and that tends to unsettle the horses. Super glue may be required.

    Cheers all and get out there and ride.

I feel cheated..
    Wed was my 20th anniversary!

    Thankfully, I didn't forget. She got a card with a handwritten note, flowers, we were supposed to go to dinner, but she wasn't feeling well.

    Oh ... and a trip to London and Paris earlier this summer.

    I assume you hog tied him, threw him over the saddle, and rode of into the sunset. Be carefull of the horn they have been known to be a passion stopper.

    The treks are fun, that horse in the pond was being splashed by its owner. It would run out, turning around and coming back for seconds. Some people really connect with their horses. The sun is out and I'm waiting for the prospective buyer to arrive. Stella has calmed a little so Its bitless riding just to show her it can be done. I get that sinking feeling that she really is going this time.

    Anniversarys I take my hat off to those that remember. One of Roslyns friends used to phone me to remind me of her birthday and the anniversary. She stopped phoning a few years ago so I now rely on being in the poo at least twice a year. But as a saving grace I do remember Easter and Christmas. That has to be worth a brownie point or to at least.

    Men can take a long time to train. When I married DH 32 years ago, he said that he really didn't like cats and they made him sneeze. He now has 2 favorite cats that sleep in the bed every night. He likes them better than I do.

    My bday is in 4 days and I will be 44 too!

    Happy Birthday to CW and Anniversary to Rick and Dave! ( well, not Rick AND Dave, but you know what I mean! ).

    It was a gorgeous day today. Went riding this evening by myself. Took Isabella out on the trail. Only the 2nd time that we have been on the trail alone. She is still nervous when it is just the two of us. But hopefully she will get better. It is very rare that I am alone, hubby and his TWH is usually with us.

    Afterwards I went in the arena and worked on riding with just a neck rope. I have a goal of riding bareback and bridleless one day. (The "live like you are dying" Stacy Westfall video makes me cry each time I see it). I have the bareback part down but I rely way too much on the reins and need to use my body more. The neck rope is the next step. She whoas really well but we need help with turning and backing up with it.

    Stan, waiting anxiously to hear what happened when the person came out to see Stella!
