Joe, what type of GPS do you have? If you want, I can do a looks-see and see if I can find any type of information on it.

I want to join in on this too please. I don't have my girl yet but once I do...I will have to start with really short rides as she is way out of shape! But then again, so am I!

Bad weather has been plaguing my riding attempts, too! Couldn't ride 2 weeks ago because it was pouring rain on my day off.

I went out to the barn early on Friday of last week, planning on getting in a good 15-18 mile ride. Forecast for the morning was cold and cloudy, with rain moving in for the afternoon. I left the barn just before 10 am and made it about 2 miles when the skies opened, drenching Dreams and I just about instantly. I debated continuing on, but I wasn't wearing waterproof clothing and being all wet in 33 degree weather quickly had my teeth chattering.

I made a whopping 4.85 miles.

So so so frustrated!! And it's forecast to rain again this week on the day I can ride. Ugh.


2012 mileage

Jan 6 -- 10.23 miles -- 10.23 total miles
Jan 20 -- 4.85 miles -- 15.08 total miles


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

Phantom, that is too bad....but chattering teeth do not make pretty music to ride with!!! Besides, you could come down sick - then you really wouldn't be riding. I was hoping to ride this week but it is supposed to start raining...we need rain but I need to ride!

Not gonna make any world records here, but at least we got out of the house.

Three miles is three miles. I am going riding in the morning, God willing and the creek don't rise. Trailer is hitched to the RAV in the driveway. Can't wait to go.

51.5 + 5.2 = 56.7

Barry and I met my cousin out at the trails today for a short ride. Just going slow because Saturday is our Limited Distance Ride. We started out on the trails and heard this drum going. I thought someone was setting up for a party tonight or something. As it turned out, a kid was in the woods, on the trails, having his picture made while he was drumming away. Kellie's horse was pretty upset by it - and we tried to go out of the woods and go around and Elan refused. I thought he was going to turn around and bolt! Kellie got off and the people were talking to Elan so he decided they weren't horse eating maniac's. Barry told Sarge to go forward and he backed up twice into Biscuit moving fast! Finally Barry got him to go around the trap set - giving it a jaundiced eye and a wide berth. Biscuit gave it a few "what the heck is that thing" look and Kellie led Elan by and remounted.

Hahahah...Sarge later stopped short because he saw something he didn't like and Biscuit ran into the back of him and his neck was in rollkur position. Hhahaha I told him not to follow so closely.

Later on the way back Sarge all of a sudden spooked and backed up into Biscuit twice - Again! Turns out some guys were fishing and throwing out the reel and he was sure they wanted him for bait.

Mosquitoes nearly toted us away today. Elan kept rubbing his head on Sarge's butt to get them off . Not the most fun ride that I have ever been on...did see a scroungy coyote. But an ok day riding is way better than just about anything else in the world!!

I never had to go around a drummer on a trail before, but I did once come across a guy marching along playing bagpipes. My horse was less than happy...................

hahahaha I LOVE bagpipes. That would have been way too cool. The people were very nice, apologized for scaring the horse and when we asked them to not play the drums til we were able to move quiet a ways away, they were more than happy to do that. They wanted to pet the horses and were very nice. That is what it is all about - sharing the trails respectfully.
