This thread is for all to share their riding adventures in 2014.

If you choose to keep track of your mileage or time in the saddle, great. If not, we love hearing stories and seeing pictures, so please share!!

DH and Sultan and Dream and I got out for our first ride of the New Year today:

Its hunting season (muzzle loader) and we had some friends out hunting, so DH and I actually spent some time intentionally crashing around in the woods trying to spook deer. Ironically, this was the first ride in as long as I can remember that I didn't see a single one!! :lol:

Upon returning home, it was that magic day for Dream - FREEDOM!!

As I had hoped, having her out for a ride before turning her loose kept her from acting like an idiot. After our normal post-ride cookie stretches, she simply moseyed away and started grazing. WOOHOO!!

Woot!!! Did anyone else get out today to ride? I got out to the barn to give my boys some carrots. I do believe they think carrots is the best treat in the world. Supposed to go riding this weekend so hoping to wrack up some miles! Happy Trails!

I rode today but not on a trail. I rode Fiddler over at my friend's arena. It was a good day with friends.

The only riding I did today was in my car as I drove through Atlanta trying to survive Interstate 75 with everybody going 70 mph. The intensity of the experience reminded me of riding my horse at a gallop past my neighbor's pitt bull; glad the day is over.

I hope that this turns out to be a great riding year for everybody!

From my New Years Day ride this morning. A little over 8 miles. Was a gorgeous day, about 72. Disappointed there was a marine layer so we couldn't see the ocean or Catalina Island today, so took my pic east facing instead.

Happy New Year!

No riding, but here's a picture of a little guy we've (that is, me and the dogs) met several times on our evening walks. Apologize for the quality: it's with a phone, and near dusk.

There's a herd that frequents that area, but I've always seen him by himself. Seems healthy: looks like a good weight, and a smooth walk & trot. Isn't at all nervous about me & the dogs - the picture's not zoomed at all. Almost acts like he wants to play with them, and a couple of times I thought he was going to follow me home. I'd walk away, and he'd be following about 20 ft back.
