well when you get to northern montana let me know.i got a few mountain top rides you and your husband might like. Was on top of one yesterday in about three feet of snow with a quarter horse 8 year old im finishing up peeking into idaho wondering where all the elk were. Its hunting season here for two more days. Figured to do two things at once. Actually three.see some high mountain country with all the fresh snow. Work the mare out. And if something really big with horns was to step out I might have had some steak for the bbq. Heading out again tomorrow morning 5amish and will let you know how it goes. Taking camera so maybe they will turn out..lol. Pictures arent my strong suit.. hope you all had a happy thanksgiving. Ride safe..

corgi-that sounds like a plan-each state has such a different climate & we have the weather (in the US) to suit what almost anyone could want-if the money to follow the climate is avaliable.

No riding for me today but I did ride Friday evening. Isabella is not yet comfortable enough to go out on the trail alone so we stayed in the arena. She was so compliant and did everything I asked without an argument but I could tell she was bored out of her mind so we didn't ride very long. The BO's were replacing an electrical line to one of the water trough's so I let Isabella graze a while while I kept the horses in the field where they were working occupied. It was the field with all the young geldings and they are so much fun. Like big puppy dogs most of the time. I put a pumpkin in their field and laughed so hard watching them try to figure out what it was. When they finally broke it open, a few took some bites but they all looked disappointed. With all the seeds they threw everywhere we will probably have a field full of pumpkins next Fall.

Hubby is back from his hunting trip so we will be riding tomorrow. We'll do some trails. I bought new stirrups today and am looking forward to trying them out. I really want an endurance saddle but am having trouble finding one that fits her so I just bought endurance stirrups for my current one. Maybe I can piece together an endurance saddle!

Hi all!

No riding for me, went off to family for the holiday...miss my horse! Have my Monday lesson, sooo looking forward to it. Rode last Wednesday, and she was very bossy, but eventually came around to my way of thinking. We are starting to plan for show season, and which shows we'll go to...

Fahntasia - that mare just gets prettier, love to see pics of her! Its cute how you call her sassy...

Corgi - the pumpkin idea for the horses sounds fun...Kes isnt interested in toys much, I wonder what she'd think of a pumpkin besides snort at it.

Stan - any luck on the trailer training?

Montana - would love to see some pics of your excursions!!!

Where's CW at????
