I ask this because I see a lot of couples on the treks I try to ride in and it gives me a buzz because it seems to be dominated by women.

My riding is with women and they can become a little patronizing I remember I got to a point I was going to chuck it in No male company.
On one of the cattle drives (mostly women) and me riding Stella so hanging back a little, a couple of the guys were riding the rear of the herd but the women were yelling instructions to them. It was not a nice place to be I could see by the riding style of the guys that were getting annoyed. These were men that rode the rodeos and being told what to do by the ladies that never let there horse move past a walk. I moved up and joined the guys that day I kinow how they were feeling and I take my hat off to them they kept quiet. I on the other hand did not.

After my medical misadventure last christmas when returned to riding they kept looking back and asking are you all right Stan, over and over. Now I know i'm a learner, and I know they ment well but in the end my response was a little kirt. I ended up saying. If i'm still sitting in the flarking saddle I'm all right stop bloody asking.

I spent a considerable amount of time in the corner but it was worth it.

Stan-Did you ride Kate, or did your wife go also? Sounds like the trailer loading is going well. Hope Bugs settles down-Stella sounds jealous,hmm?

With Grace-Do you have a show coming up soon? Or still more training to get ready?

Hello to all,keep the home fires burning!

Where's Mont cowboy? Miss your posts!
Roslyn rode Kate and she was a gem no issues, Kate I mean. Just as well her back was still a little sore after being bucked off.

My plans for tonight have gone out the window. While you are suffering in silence with winter weather today was a hot one, must be in the high 90s at our place so a reprieve for the horse. I don't have the hart to get him out of the shade and work in this heat.

The Australians are getting a pasting at present with bush fires raging, homes being raized. There is bound to be some loss of life by the end of it all. New Zealand fire fighters have gone over to assist they really need the extra man power on this one. Seems some fool has light a number of the fires for some fun. Australia is also having a heat wave.

I think he only rides to keep me happy.

His horse is too much horse for him. Other than spending money on a new one, she is what we have.
