We rode 3.4 miles today. We have worked out something with the pitbull owner. I send him a text message and he puts the dog in the pen. I could hear her trying to tear out of the pen, but she couldn't get out. That was a good thing.
We saw a mother deer and her half grown baby. On the way out, the horses saw them and just snorted a little bit. On the way home, the same deer jumped out and scared us a bit. The Princess started to bolt, but she set right down into a stop when I pulled back. She was a little bit jiggy after that, but she did well.
Total is 161.2 miles. We may not get much more than that this year because Clay has a heart cath scheduled on Thursday. Hopefully it won't put him out of the running for too long. Depends on what they find.
Celeste, glad you worked that out with the owner. Works for everyone. Well done!!! Glad Princess was a good girl today and sorry about the heart cath. That doesn't sound like any fun at all. Will be adding that to my prayers list!
913,,, I sure wish my new saddle with the gel pad seat would hurry up and get here, my butt is weary. Went to a christmas parade yesterday, shoulda known better than to leave it to the women folk to plan, or should I say don't plan the operation.... "We can just ride the horses to town so meet at my place its only 6 miles we can cut through the woods,..,,, 18 miles later, ummm "I think its going to get dark on us" Ya think ? Yep so trapsing through woods and fields dressed as the grinch and a horse freakign out over jingle bells.
My friend rides with bells on her horse. The first time Moz heard them (she was behind him) he spooked like someone goosed him. By the end of the day he was ignoring them. I hadn't entered my riding hrs onto the computer since April so I took the time yesterday to get caught up. I logged 416.75 hrs this yr.
