out on the trail with a riding friend in the early spring of 2013

so, we tacked up and headed down the long driveway , crossed the street and we are in our local equestrian park; Bridle Trails State Park.
About 470 acres of wooded trails. Might seem like a lot, but after riding there for 13 years, I know the trails so well that it can get really tiresome. But, that's where we have to ride, and believe me, I am NOT complaining.
Ok, off to ride in the woods!

I am definitely going to get down to those trails this summer, have you ridden at the Les Hilde trails, in Hamilton? It is one of the largest in the U.S. You can ride sunrise to sunset and never on the same trail, just have to watch for bears and cougars but we have never had one come at us.

Tinyliny...what a beautiful park to ride in!

Count me among the "Westside Grumblers." Two spectacular days of sun and warmth and today it's back to rain and drizzle. : (

I do occasionally get my other riding buddy to trailer Mac, the appy, out to some nearby riding locale, so that I can ride somewhere new and refreshing.
Z, on the other hand, I cannot trailer him anywhere. He isn't mine and he's 17hh tall, so needs a tall trailer. I dont' even know how well he does/doesn't trailer.

Anyone that wants to trailer down to Bridle Trails Park, just message me and I will happily, happily be your attentive guide.

Or, anyone who wants me to go out on THEIR trails, well, you provide the horse and I'll join you! (within like an hour or two from where I live)

I went riding on friday to the trail up in tuscany! It was cold but at least the sun was out. Sunny again yesterday and now its back to the clouds. Tinyliny we should go riding together sometimes. I live about 15 minutes away from you.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

Once I get more miles on Dahlia you would probably love her and I would definitely take you out on our trails here!

"tuscany"? That's in Italy, isn't it?

ANd yes, we should ride together. As I said, I am pretty much landlocked , so you'd have to come to me, but I love to escort folks through "my" trails. Name the day, sister!
