I got a Garmin for Christmas last year so we could map the trails up at Ebenezer park in Jasper, TX They used to run endurance rides there and there is a myriad of trails going all over. I got a kick out of seeing how far we went and speeds, etc. and looking at the trail on topographical maps and Google Earth. I currently have 348 miles for 2011 on The Biscuit. I ordered a V-Max heart monitor. V-MAX Product 5

I will use it for the first time either Saturday or Sunday. Hubby hauled the horses to Ebenezer this morning. I have to finish this giant wedding cake and deliver it tomorrow at noon and then I am hitting the road to check it out!

Enjoying my Garmin and mapping trails

Don't fret too much for a 15 mile ride.

Just bring some snacks and a water bottle for you and your horse. If they give you a halfway vet check or something (I don't think they will for such a short distance;) then pack a bag for the checks and maybe have a friend there or something.

I have no shod the horse I ride, nor does he have boots, but his feet are rock hard. If your horse is too tender, ask about the terrain. If you're crossing high rides and deep rock valleys, get some shoes. If not, then just go play.

Also, bring a camera! I was riding and snappin' pictures all over the place.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I have never competed in anything and I don't think my horse has ever been to a sleep over camp for an event lol lots of learning with this event. :) its in 2 weeks so I am just cleaning all our gear and making sure we have all the necessary stuff
Yayay I am such a happy person right now :)

I'm sure you'll have fun! What I would reccomend if bring a saddle bag, put horse stuff in one side, your stuff in the other! I generally put a gatorade in either side (Electrolytes for both of us, there was water stops along the way) some crackers of cookies in my side and them some horse treats and whatever your horse normally likes (i put licorice and those Quaker Oats crackers in mine )
