LOL Nancy, Celeste is right....I don't care if it is cold, wet, wind is blowing (don't care for heavy wind though!) hot, humid or whatever...riding is riding. I can put layers on in the cold, wear my cool vest and chilly pad in hot weather...would have helped to have had a poncho when this happened though in December!
Speaking of rain, we have had it non-stop and there's more to come. Hard to get out when the trails are slick.
Yesterday we managed to sneak out for a 7.5 mile ride between showers. Poor Selena got stuck in a mud bog that looked like clear trail...luckily both Easyboots stayed on through shoulder deep mud...certainly the ultimate Easyboot challenge
Overall a relaxing ride to enjoy the scenery. The rain sure does make everything in Vermont very green!
This weekend, DH and I went to the Glass Rides and did the 2-Day 50 mile CTR. As Dream is still recovering from her leg wound, I found another horse to ride. Riding a heavy-muscled Morgan in a distance ride was a whole new experience! See the whole thread here (with pics and vid, of course).
