Logging 2013 Miles - How far did you go?
Happy New Year and wishing Happy Trails, Healthy Horses and Riders for 2013. If you are new to the forum or to logging miles - join right in and tell us how many miles you and your trail buddy rode. Some of us are using Garmins/GPS's and some are using the GPS on their phones. We'd love to see pictures of where you have rode and hear your stories!!!

Just wishing a Happy New Year to all you trail riders. Hoping you have great times out there & stay safe while enjoying your horse & the countryside. Good luck with attaining your goals. Good health to all.

We started off the new year with a midnight ride. Very fun! I also went for a short ride this afternoon to get started on those 2013 miles ...
Miles to date: 2.79
Miles to go: 997 + :lol:

Way to go TheOtherHorse - wish I could have got out today but it is freaking raining. LOL I will have to wait til this weekend to start my happy trails!

I had been hoping to get out today for a quick jaunt around the property, but the gale force wind and snow quickly made me rethink that idea!!

Maybe tomorrow, if I get the errands I need done before dark (but 2 of them involve government offices.. so being done before dark is questionable!!). :think:

You might be lucky to be done by the weekend Dawn.

I have been reading last years thread and I think I might join this one to help encourage me to go out more.

I can't get to actual trails due to lack of transport but I do ride along the roads and I plan to go out for the first time this year today. Hopefully I'll have some pictures etc later today.

Doesn't matter where you ride - join right in!

I just redid some riding logs for some folks so if you would like a excell log to track miles send me your email address in a PM. I have one for two horses with date, distance, speed and location of ride and one for one horse that is just date, distance.

Ok I nearly died in the heat today but it was still fun. I would say we trotted about a third of the ride and walked the rest, still building fitness :D but we got 3.85 miles yay.

First scarey part of the ride. The narrow part ahead in the photo with a ditch on either side and I have to cross the road just further up.

The second scarey part, I got sammy to cross for the second time today without me having to get off due to cars.

A side road I decided to inspect cause we haven't been down there. Didn't make it to the end though.

Rain all day yesterday so I'm still at zero.

DW doesn't like cold weekend we expect a high around 40....I keep telling her that's spring time weather for Canadians but she's not buying it.....
