Horns are good. You can hang stuff on them. You can hold on to them. :)

Yea, horns are good for hanging stuff on, but they also stab you in the gut when you are jumping over a log - or worse the horn can jab you in the sternum and bust a bra!

A friend broke his pelvis from the horn when his horse bucked him off. His wife still won't let him ride anymore...

I ordered the Bick 4. As soon as it comes in I will be slathering it on the saddle so it will quit squeaking and the fenders will be softer. I just don't want to darken it!

Even if it is supposed to not darken or damage the leather, I would sure test it on a small spot that doesn't show first. I have had stuff that didn't work like it was supposed to.

I will remember that Celeste. I am hoping to ride this weekend - LOL I have this new saddle and it is just sitting in the tack room. We had a heavy down pour today and the stables had standing water on the road that goes down to the pastures. If I can't ride I will condition my saddle!

We rode 3 miles today. We started a little later than we planned and it got hot fast. When we got back it was 90 degrees with 67% humidity. We would have gone farther, but Abby (my husbands 22 year old arab) was sweating so profusely that I was worried about her. They sure were happy when we hosed them down after getting back. They love to drink out of the water hose. I will be so glad when it cools off. That is probably it for the weekend for me. I have to work tomorrow.

Total 107.14 miles

Biscuit and I went for a short solo ride today. I ran out to Tyrrell Park and checked the trails. They seemed to be dry by the park road. I walked up and down them for a short space. I went home and later hauled out to the park. I went into a different trail entrance and it was wet in places - dry in others. We got down to an area where it is low so we went down a ride away. Biscuit wasn't too excited about that as he wasn't familiar with the trail. We got about 3/4 of the way to the other side and it got mushy with vines and chunks of wood/trees down. He didn't want to go further and kept backing up and refusing to go. I could see he was getting upset (thank goodness I wasn't) so I did turn him around. We are building confidence but not there yet. We only rode 1.3 miles - jogging on parts that were dry. He was a good boy and I enjoyed myself. I hope to go tomorrow and am going Sunday with my cousin. Hopefully, it won't rain so much and I can get out and ride!

We had a little storm come in last night - lots of strong wind and lightening but not a lot of rain at my house. I was so excited as Kellie and I were going to go for a ride!!!! Woot! To the back of the bayou!!! Woot! Did I say Woot?

Ok...hauled out to the park, tacked up, we went around the inside park road to where it had been dry Friday. It was not dry today. Obviously the park got way more rain than my house. OMG muddy most of the trail and huge spiders. Biscuit went willingly most of the way, some Elan had to lead as Biscuit can decide 'uh...no' on occasion. He backed me right into a tree because good grief, there was mud!!! We got out to where we would go down the bayou and it hasn't been cut in ages....the vegetation was at least seat in the saddle high. We decided to forgo the outback ride. There are tons of snakes out - copperheads and water moccasins and who knows what the trails are all the way to the back...possible alligators on the prowl.

We are sissies. We just kept going on the trail back to the trailer so we had a 1.8 mile ride in mud for the most part. It is good training for Biscuit - he has never been a fan of mud and can be absolutely nutty about walking in it. He was very good today for the most part so I can't call it a loss - I got out for a ride and that is what counts. I now have 182.25 miles. The weather is supposed to let up next week - hopefully I can make up miles in the fall!!!
