Love this north Texas fall weather!
Missing out on the Era ride today. My mare is just not ready for a full day on the trail. Put the western saddle on her today and rode in the pasture. She showed a little discomfort as we began walking and still didn't want to pick up a lope. We walked for a long time and she has no issues trotting. She's putting on weight and I'm really missing riding like we used to do!

Had a great ride. I'll go into more detail later when not on Kindle. Cut ride today short when friend got short of breath, chest pains, almost passed out. Good nurse that I s. Left her on side of rode and. Lil and I ran the. 3ish miles back to the trailer. Loaded up to go get her. Someone stopped and brought her to me while someone led her horse. Met her DH at the ER. No news yet. Hopefully is was nothing

Heard from friends DH, "just" low potassium, she's going home. Good news!

Got to the grasslands Friday about 4ish, rode a couple hrs. Sprinkled on us a couple times. Got up Saturday, went to the Trail ride in Era, TX. Great ride, beautiful country. Wish my camera took better pics to do it justice. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=640898fce8

At the ride, an older man was bucked off and his horse fell on him. They went home. An older woman was bucked off less than 200 yrds after we started, she went home. Then a young girl was bucked off her green horse, coming up out of a creek bed. Knocked the wind out of her, but she got back on and finished the ride. Those were the only problems there. Horses were feeling cool, crisp weather! It turned out a nice clear, warm day!

We rode close to 3 hrs this morning before my friend started feeling bad, then of course, instead of taking the short cut back, she got turned around, I had not ridden that part before, so we took the long way.

I am pooped, everything put up, last load of laundry in the dryer, I've showered, horses are grazing. Have her horse in my pasture, and her truck/trailer in my drive until they can pick it up. It may be an early night for me tonight! I'm too old for this sh..tuff

Thanks for sharing pics, Nu! I hear that they always serve up some good food at that ride. They also have a spring ride, maybe I'll make that one :)
Glad your friend is OK. How scary was that, right?

I felt guilty for leaving her, but, she was too dizzy to ride, my phone was dead, forgot to bring the charger, her phone was almost dead, it won't hold a charge (she's taking it back). Luckily a nice couple and their son stopped for her. Met them in their vehicle, about half way back to them. Then the husband with the horse a little bit later. Nice to know there are good people out there!

I know I need to work out more! My thighs hurt from the running/trotting to get to the trailer! Lil was a trouper though. Didn't hesitate leaving her new buddy (Like I did! Lol)

What a ride, Nu! Hope you enjoyed the time you DID ride. Glad your friend is doing okay. Yay, Lil!

Sorry your mare is still having issues with that lope, Out :(

Hope everyone else had a good weekend!

Cash was great Sat & Sun, very proud of him. Cool weather & lack of flies makes my itchy boy soooo much happier. My son's Halloween party was a success. Scheduled a last minute brunch today (at Meddlesome Moth in Dallas - one of my favorite spots) with a friend visiting from Houston. Currently relaxing as we wait for my son to be dropped off - he spent the day at Six Flags with some of fiance's family :)

Sounds like an eventful weekend. Glad your friend is ok Nu. We had a good weekend as well. Dh and his new steed are doing well and the girl who got Sadie had the best rodeo she's ever had with her on Saturday. Her mom said it was like they've been riding for a long time. We are so excited for them!
