Got Dream out again this morning, before the storm started.

Weather is going to be miserable for the next week or so.. snow tonight, then horrendously cold (highs in the single digits), then more snow coming Sunday/Monday followed by more single-digit weather on Tues/Wed. I will actually be happy to be at work and inside!!

2014 mileage
1/01/14 dream 5.48 miles 4.7 mph 5.48 total miles
1/02/14 dream 5.07 miles 5.7 mph 10.55 total miles

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

Love the photos! It keep me sane while the BO works on the trails here. They need a lot of work due to being severely damaged during last years flood.

Once the BO makes the call that the trails are safe, I will be out there!

Woo Hoo Dawn you go girl. I just watched a weather report and it is pretty dang cold out there!!! It is 43 here with a real feel of 47 because it is sun shining right now. We are planning on riding tomorrow - supposed to be mostly sunny in the morning and then clouding up right after the noon hour. We shall see.

Hope everyone stays safe - their horses too.

I'm commenting on here because I love to follow your adventures. Journey and I don't get much riding in with all my neck and knee issues, except for around the farm and arena, but I love reading about your adventures! I have followed the "How Far Did You Go?" threads since 2012.

Ride on, cowgirls and cowboys. I think this is one of the most inspiring groups on this forum! :)

I got a 3 mile ride in on Spirit this morning! It was SO beautiful out! It was cold(16), but sunny, so it felt GOOD! We rode about a mile up in the trails, then down the road for 2 miles.

I was wearing my ski pants, so my legs were not cold at all, and the snow just fell off if I hit a tree. It is going to get REALLY cold here next week!!

I, too, get lots of enjoyment from following this thread. I'm hoping to get a lot more riding in this year, on my 2 new horses. Sent in the Morgan mares' transfer papers yesterday and am joining the Pathway program w/the Registry.

Didn't have a ton of time today so we only got in 4.5 miles. But since I decided to start learning a new discipline, I used our trail ride to work on some of my new dressage skills from my last lesson. So on the flats, I worked on my hands, seat and leg position, contact and leg yielding. Fun times!
