Seahorse haven is in the Sam Houston National Forest. There are umpteen miles of woods to ride in - some are multi-use trails, and others are trails we use for endurance riding - all in all, miles and miles....

We are thinking about going in November sometime...don't know when exactly, we just decided to try to do it and haven't set a date.

I do know that you DON'T have to have shoes on your horse (if that helps anyone) the forest floor is dirt and there are a few forest roads to cross, but we can pick our way across those. You must bring a current coggins.

There are ravines and slopes and fallen trees here and there, so the trails can be technical and GREAT for training greenies. Might have to watch out for pigs, tho - they were squealing in my woods last night and tore up the neighbors front yard the night before - guess it is hog season again!

Guess that means my dogs have to stay at home. They are (seriously) trained to hunt hogs and I would wind up having to chase them down. Lol

I'm sure loving this "cold front"! We haven't ridden much all summer, so my OTTB is out of shape. My daughter and I took him out to ride this morning.

She rode first. She is a beginner rider and he is such a good boy with her. They walked and trotted all around the arena. I was next... our turn to walk around. I had a bad fall years ago, so every ride brings my confidence back a little more. I even trotted for a bit! It's hard to believe this former racehorse is so carefully walking around the arena with each of us.

I'm looking forward to riding again... and often! Yay for cooler weather!

The boys were visited by my boss's family today. Gully took the kids around the pasture and was ridden for a good hour. He did GREAT with them, and was so understanding about kids who'd never ridden a "real" horse before. Kayla, the bigger one, even trotted on him for a bit! Henny and the boys loved the attention from the girls.

That's kind of how it was for me... was! I'm 50, still is! Lol

Went riding on the Red river yesterday, about 4 hrs, had a ball, except when I broke my finger did that right out of the bad, just a freak accident. Had the lead, loose in my hand, horse looked right, and it pulled the lead just right where it pulled my pinkie right and broke it right at the middle knuckle. Of course, I didn't pack up and go home, pulled the finger out, saddled up, rode 4 hrs, went home, found my crazy ass mare had kicked something a has about a 2" gash on her lower leg, the injured leg. CLeansed, doctored and dressed that. I swear she is going to be the death of me!
My boss's horse that I am riding, is probably a good 17 HH!!! So I brought my step stool I guess I had the stool just on the edge of the plowed field, that when I stood up there, put my foot in the stirrup, and the step stool went sideways, landed ass first in the dirt. I had to laugh, didn't hurt myself, luckily, I didn't put my hurt hand down. I get to see the orthopedic surgeon tomorrow at 1. Have a trial ride this weekend, and the weekend of the 29th!! I CAN'T MISS THEM!~!~
