LOL NM, Rainn is making such a face: not sure she agrees with your taste!!! Really cute.

Corgi: you seem to have things under control, thinking of your mom and everything. You are strong... horse therapy coming at the end of your week, that is priceless.

Yissy, you seem to have the perfect horse. Have you considered walking your horse on the trails you plan to ride? I do that sometimes and horses love it. Great bonding activity. But... I'm tiny and can't imagine walking a Clyde...

On my ride yesterday, I cantered on a straight stretch in the woods; I think I never went this fast ever. Cantering alone on trails is fairly new for me. I think it was as much a thrill for both my mare and I. Then later, we jumped a log, probably 2' high. Not much, but I felt like a kid on Christmas Eve. I'm charged with Happy Energy that will get me through the week. Working straight until next Tuesday 22nd. I'll read you, but probably won't have much time to pitch in the conversation.
Hope you all had a great week end.

I got to ride yesterday. Walked a couple trails to get to know the area. It was so nice to be out! I am waiting anxiously for videos of my girl from her Congress Days. Her owner promised to send them to me. I didn't even know she had shown there!

Chinks are short chaps-usually just past the knee w/some fringe. Since I usually ride w/tall boots-a full leg chap just gets very tight. A "pulling" breast collar follows the contour of the shoulder & hooks into the saddle around the horn instead of attaching to the saddle below the horn. Kind of an old-fashioned look-just my style-LOL! Lost out in the last few seconds to faster fingers on some boots made from anteater leather-they were something else.

Not a lot going on, but I seem to be super busy-guess I'm adjusting to being retired-haha.

Nickers has been spending up large and we have seen her sitting on a horses A$$

How about a fashon parade. We need to see what the dollars have brought, the chaps, chafs, tights, what ever one calls them, and the bling. Photos please.

Ladona, I hope things work out for you to move your mother closer to you and you are able to collect your father's ashes. Maybe the activities this weekend will help lift your spirits to a comfortable place.

Yissy, I agree that it sounds like you have a great horse. I would also agree with walking the trail horse in hand to help you build more confidence.

Eole, that is one of the rides that can only put a smile on you that will last a month. I remember those rides on my Leop/App Arabian when I still lived in Ms. She loved to move out when we rode the roomer trails.

MR, hate to see your streak ending for the camping, but glad you are looking forward to day rides. I look forward to seeing more pics of your area.

NM17, Rainn has that tongue out like " I think I'm going to barf if I have to wear this thing all winter" lmbo... Cute. I'm sure she will get over the design when it does it's job in the cold.


Stan, all I can say is I concur on the parade.



Ccg, sorry you missed the bid on those boots as they sound pretty neat.

I tried to like your post twice and had to hit it thrice as the second time removed it. Bummer.

I take offence at being classed as 'mature' as I'm over 40

If you lack maturity, you will fit in very well here. We try to keep it "young".
