    Great pics and sounds like you should be enjoying loads of trails now.

    I haven't posted on this thread in ages! Just as a brief reintroduction, I'm a 20 year old college student, so I couldn't ride much during the academic year. My mare, Liz, is a Morgan in her mid to late 30's and she loves trails. We didn't have trails for a few years before moving to our new barn in September. I haven't gotten out as much as I'd like because the footing hasn't been very good. She doesn't do very well in difficult footing, her arthritis tends to bother her when it gets muddy. And now, of course, we have bugs to work around!

    So far, we've covered 22.96 miles. This is the first year we've recorded distance and I'm having a blast!

    And a couple of pictures of the old lady from this winter and spring, just because she's adorable

    Isn't that amazing that horses today are still being ridden in their mid 30's

    I think it's great. I hope both me and my mare are able to still go trail riding when she's in her 30's, and I'm in my 70's....

    Aliliz she's so cute I just want to squeeze her. I love the older ones they've just got this adorableness to them. Bloo's 36th is in a few months and all the kids are planning a big party for him so I'm they're getting his friends used to party hats for the event. But I'm in the process of getting a new dog so I don't have much time to help them with planning, or for riding. My wolfhound Joker has to be retired because of hip issues so I'm testing out a few different dogs to see which works best around the horses and the chaos. Joker's going on his last trail on Monday, which is a little bitter sweet but best for his health.

    My friend Donna brought her quarter horse out and rode with me today. Clay decided to let it be a girl’s day, so he stayed home. I rode Abby because I figured that she would behave well. She was a darling for sure. We started around a place that we call Rocky Hill, but the road was blocked with a fallen tree and there was no safe path around it. We changed our route and just went down the hill and back. Total 2.9 miles today.

    62 miles total

    Put in a short ride today, only 10 miles. But it was pretty. We were high enough on the mountain that the quakies are just starting to leaf out.

    Pretty much a Blue Sky and no clouds kinda of day

    The trail followed along a small stream

    As we rode down the canyon, we dropped into lower elevation areas where the trees had leaves

    And you can see how far?

    Painted Horse--take me too! Wowza is it beautiful!

    Selena and I completed another 15 mile CTR today. We originally were aiming for a 25 but I didnt' feel quite ready so we did another fun 15 and had a blast!

    Today we placed first and received an almost perfect score of 99/100...I am ecstatic! It was a beautiful ride in Woodstock and it seemed as if the sun was out just for us. Couldn't have asked for a better ride

    Hope you all are getting lots of time in the saddle! Here's a few pictures from our ride today.
