The campgrounds are real nice as well...
If you guys want to meet me here we can go riding on the road here (it is a dirt road) but the 8 mile section around here is VERY pretty and nice to ride on.I would say that we could all meet at one of the lakes, but I dont currently have a trailer to haul my horse

I love road riding. My backroads are so rocky(big stuff) that it makes it hard sometimes to enjoy it, but it's one of my favorites. I don't have a trailer either, but my friend does. ;) We hit the Flinthills pastures in summer as often as we can.

That ride this month does sound like fun, pity I can't get away til after school is out. I'm a cook.

Pidge that does sound like a good idea.. Shea look out! You may get more company than you want.. LOL

Bring it on!! I love to meet new people and go riding!! I understand that a school schedual can determin a persons schedual..I am in college. But getting together this summer does sound like fun...I dont have anyone that I can ride with right now, my mom leaves for work before the sun comes up and dosent get home till after dark and my dad cant ride right now (I have to get his horse ready, He had a stroke and is just starting to show an intrest in riding again) and my husband dosent ride...he knows how (sort of) but he never does ride with me.
My horse is still green but with a few wet blankets she will be great

I have never liked riding alone. Must be cuz when I was a kid I always rode with my sis.

Glad to hear your dads interest is perking up. Sorry to hear about his stroke. I know what you mean, my hub used to ride with me once in a while, but it's just not his thing.. He likes Harleys better..

I'll talk with my riding buds and see if we can mosey down that way this summer. It would be nice to have a local guide as well as meeting a fellow forumer. :)

That sounds good to me. I would love to have someone to ride with. When I was little I would ride with my parents and sis, but as I said before my dads strok (which was in 1998) put him disabled and having little use of his left side (the doc told him that riding would help him regain some of his balance, confidance and mabye some more use of his left side). My mom thinks she is to "fat" (her words not mine) to ride right now and my sis has lupus and has many bad days that keep her from riding much and even keep her from being able to get in the saddle easily. Much of the time she can get in the sadle but then she has trouble getting out. I have five kids, but only one of them would be able to ride with me (the youngest) without panicking if I let go of the lead rope...so alone I ride. But with my health, riding has done me much good. I suffer from depression and my horse helps me more than any counciler or medications have ever done.

Wow 5 kids, eh.. I had 2 and they bout did me in. LOL Mine are grown and I have 4 grandchildren. Of course the one that lives close has fear issues. I keep trying tho.

Sounds like there is a lot on your families plate. I do believe fresh air and a good horse goes a long way for mental health. Clears the cobwebs, winter adds plenty of those.

I understand their fears..I have a few that "want" to ride but the minute I let go of the horse they panic and want down. But the youngest (she will be 6 next month) is the one that dosent have a problem when I drop the lead line...go figure. All my kids range from 10 to 5 right now. I stay pretty wound up and look forward to my rides..lol we are a blended family, so two of them are from my previous marriage (Shelby, who will be 6 next month...and Eric who is 8.. )and three are from his previous marriage (Desiree who is 10, William who will be 9 later this month, and Erica who is 7) So as you can saee that is why my hair is already turning gray, and I am only 27!!! LOL
I did get to ride my horse for a bit today, but the winds where driving her crazy and she was jumpier than usual. She didnt buck or anything but she was acting up. With her still being green I expect that for now..I hope that that will change with more miles under her belt.
