Can't wait to see how those videos turn out! I found it really interesting to see your last video--the plant life on your trails is so different than what I am used to seeing!

I plan to ride on Friday, which will hopefully let this horrible cold snap pass. I got a new digital camera for xmas, but the video function is not very compatible to riding--you push a button on the back of the camera to turn to video mode and it starts recording instantly, then you push the same button again to turn it off.. and I am not coordinated enough to do that one-handed! Hopefully there is a way to change that, but I need to read through the manual. Otherwise, I guess I will be sticking with my old camera, on which the video turns off and on with the same button that controls the shutter for the camera.

Also loved seeing the purple tack in your video. I put in my order with Mandy yesterday and can't wait to see the finished products!!

Jan 1st: Spirit was off a bit so I only rode around the pasture for about an hour. I won't count it since it's not a trail ride.
Jan 2nd: I trail rode with a few friends for about 5 miles. The wind picked up and was bitter cold.

This little Contour Camera is pretty darn cool. Push one button and it is on. It was inexpensive too. $89 and was shipped free...I did need to buy a 32 gig SIM card that was $30 from Amazon...way cheaper than Best Buy.

I am going to mount it on my helmet tonight because the little holder thing needs to "cure" on the helmet before putting the camera on it.

I ordered a purple curb strap from Mandy and got it in today. Should have ordered it when I got everything else and saved on the shipping! What a dummy!

I want in!! Probably won't get as many miles this year due to crazy project schedule... but we plan to blaze some new trails and map them with the GPS. Dang USFS closed a bunch of ATV trails and cut hundreds of logs across them... to a point! ;) gotta figure a way around them to get to the sweet spots!

So far... 0 miles! Goal... 150! I know that's not very high but I will only count new or mapping trails and I don't want to blow my NYE resolution!

QOS - can't wait to see new vids of your part of the country! Great idea, may steal it!

My barn peeps and I went on a ride this afternoon. It was the first time my buddy rode in her new Taylored Tack and her mare was a little disconcerted by the bridle fitting differently and wearing a breast collar. We were just out taking it slow. Some trotting and jogging and I had my Contour Camera on but am having some trouble editing it. As soon as I get that kink worked out I can post some.

We got back to the trail head and I let my buddies go first so Biscuit and I could practice "Biscuit goes where Denise says - not where Biscuit wants to go" skills. A little bit of a struggle and he caved in and went past the trail head where his buddies had just exited. We went back and forth about 5 or 6 times so that he understands that I decide when the ride is over - not him!

Rode for the first time in my new helmet and it was very comfortable. I liked it.

We rode exactly 7 miles so we have 13.8 miles for the year.

4.6 miles today.

12.54 miles for the year.

It was another perfect day! The weather was warm. My Sshabecca is actually riding like a real horse rather than the hot headed psycho Arab that she was. We had one small event. We were on a dirt road and a hunter in a truck pulling a very rattly trailer was coming toward us. We got off the road and I spooked out three deer. Sshabecca wheeled around a few times, but then she stopped. She got right back on the road and went along. She was almost rolling peanuts for a lot of the ride. Head low, relaxed. Just like a real horse! When we would go into a trot, she shook her head around a time or two, then settled right down.

She was just totally insane this time last year. I am so excited. It has taken a lot of work to get where we are.
