Cool A Texas trail ride

Sorry these videos were so long but the trail ride ended up being about 2 hours and I just kinda clipped together the better parts of it. Here is where I trail ride most of the time (though there is no trail for the biggest part of it).


Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I also took a few pix while we were getting ready to go and after my camcorder battery died.

Getting ready


Oh, come on, Mom....... :/


All ready to go.


And these were taken after my other camera died. I have always been fascinated by this cliff, it is in the middle of a pasture all by itself where the rest of the pasture is mostly rolling hills and one creek.






This cave is in the cliff face just above eye level when I am on my horse.








And here is a pic to show just how tall that cliff is.








And finally back at home. Dobe got a decent workout for just a mostly walk ride. ;)

Great pictures Jen, do you have your saddlebag on backwards?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I honestly don't know. *blushes* I have never had saddle bags before so I just kinda threw them up there, tied them on and went. LOL. Now that I look at it, I probably do. They are tapered on both sides and I just didn't take the time to look closely. Maybe that is why they were rubbing on his butt? LOL.

Thanks for the compliments. I love riding down there (even if it is a bit dangerous while holding a camera) ;p
