My cousin and I planned a ride. Since Barry rode yesterday I asked if the my tack was still in it. He said yes. I hauled out to the park, unloaded Biscuit, opened the tack door and NO SADDLE. OMG - called hubby and he said "I thought you meant your bridle and stuff. I took my saddle out (been using his while my new saddle is being made) because it was sweaty!!"

My cousin's husband was kind enough to bring me a saddle so we went for a short ride. Got almost all the way around and Biscuit was upset over poop on the trail...OMG some human animal had pooped on the trails, left their TP right there. Gaaaa...Biscuit was startled by it - it was the garden variety poop he is used to seeing or smelling. Gaaaaaaa it is right near two public bathrooms. What is wrong with people?

Anyway...we rode a grand total of 1.8 miles but hey...it was a ride!!!

Total 169.55

Lol. You can see all kind of scary things on the ride!

I didn't get to go out on a trail ride, but we did do a little bit of schooling in the arena.

LOL we do have fun on our rides. It was just me and my cousin - she is so much fun and we really enjoy our rides.

Celeste, schooling in the arena is a good thing. I would do more if Biscuit didn't act like a total goober at times in the arena. He is a doll on the trails but a toot at times in the arena. I am hoping to ride a few times this week....lets see if that happens!

My horse can be a total idiot in the arena as well. The more I work with her in the arena, the better she does out on the trail. She really needs to be handled daily. I wish that I had time.......

I can relate Celeste. I wish I had time and someone to ride with everyday! It is my goal this summer to ride by myself at least once a week out in the park. It will help Biscuit and me gain the confidence to endurance ride. LOL it is still a dream of mine!

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

Did roughly 3-4 miles tonight, hot as can be out but my boy did spectacularly.

I'm looking fir an app for my phone that can track miles, but here's the kicker, I need it do work offline... is there such an app? I could look at the map of the park and figure out the mileage but we tend to go off the regular paths and make our own trails.

We did three miles tonight +/- and Chivas was WONDERFUL for most of it, but got antsy at the end. When I got off he peed again! Oh well, maybe he can learn to go while I am on him. He has to pee every time before we ride, which is I think a good thing...

But over all I was very pleased, he is really listening to me now and he did most of it at a fast, marching walk or a medium gait with a little bit of cantering uphill. I was able to ride at any speed past my daughters, in either direction, so I was thrilled with him tonight <3

I have to work all weekend again, but Monday it will be back in the saddle because I passed my Boards Monday!!!! I am now fully licensed Registered Nurse! The test was a bear and I never want to have to do that again!
