    It is a good test of the blood pump, that's for sure.

    Couple more pics of some of the obstacles we traverse with our rigs.






    And we all know what happens when the unexpected happens with horses. Well this is the result of the unexpected with trail rigs that weren't built properly for these parks. Luckily no one was hurt.



    Most of these rigs are built for slow trail riding and enjoying the different views like this one.


    Ok, back to our regularly scheduled programs. Lol

    @ AlexS, thanks.

    @ Stan, I am not sure that the bay water is salt going into the ocean or not but I do need to make sure I wipe it down good. Will get on it this weekend. Thanks.
    Never had one lay in the sand, that is funny, "making sand castles" .

    I feel like I am missing something but I am having a brain fade.

    Roadyy that takes skill to nav those areas. I think Corgi and AlexS would be starters for off road driving.

    Hunter65 we need photos of the event and the target please so we can get our minds around the difficulty. Watch out hunter may love the adventure and really get into it.

    Nvr2meany: sandcastles the horse was Savanna 17.2 Clydex TB and went to the clyde side. Young, being given experience and milage. She was raised on hill country try and imagine this. Walking in sand dunes, and tracks, she having a ball, me hanging on for dear life. We were coming out of the dunes having just been up to one of the small lakes for lunch and walking a track back down to the beach.

    The track was only 4 feet wide and 2 to 3 feet deep in the sand with tussock grass on the sides and steep I had to lean back in the saddle quite some way.

    Savannah was quite at home in this country and was loving it. I was also enjoying myself having built confidence in my horse, I was really relaxed leaning back feet forward and down she went. I, being the magnificant surpurbly fit ole fart, was just quick enough to get my feet up and out so I could step out of the saddle onto the side of the track which was now level with Savannah's back. She could not roll, the track was not wide enough. That saved my saddle.

    I got her up and climbed back on and bugger me she took two steps and did it again, I saw red, now try to imagine, this great big clyde mare standing on a steep down hill slope with me in the trench in front of her shaking a finger at her when I bearly came up to her arm pits. I was about the height of where her neck comes out of her chest, struggling to maintain my ballance, and from going over back wards or from sliping forwards I even climbed onto the bank and tried to liik her in the eye to which she just stood taller raising her head and still looking down at me.

    I swear she was laughing, she stood dead still while I ranted and raved all around her. I walked her down the remainder of the track, which was an act in its self and on to the beach. Flat ground. That did me no good as I had to retrace my foot steps to find a raised area so I could re-mount.

    That horse was laughing at me I could feel it. I could see the twinkle in her eye and can you guess what she did next. Just as I settled into the saddle she started to shake herself violently and I found myself in the sand again.

    I took the hint and proceded to demonstrate to my horse how to make sand castles. Its true.

    The learning I got from the experience, she taught me this. She was bigger than me. She had a twinkle in her eye, and when a horse is in water and they start to paw it they are getting ready to have a swim and when in the sand and they shuffle their front legs its the sign they want to make sand castles.
