    My cousin's friend that stayed with us this past wed to wed said she used to ride religiously about 2 years ago so I put her up on Doc, the 20+ year old dead broke, bareback and halter so I could lead her around to see her balance...I finally looped the lead rope over his neck and ran it through the halter to make reins for her to hold while I kept my hand resting on the side of his face. Took to laps around my small pasture then put my hands at my side while he followed me. She tried a couple of times to lead him away from me with no luck. She is also 16...Seems to be a pattern starting here...lol

    You just didn't interpret what she said correctly. "Religiously" means she sits on the horse, closes her eyes, and prays

    Who won?

    I've never been able to keep up at more than a trot, which is a comfortable jog/slow run for me. But I do enjoy doing that, and will usually do it a time or two on anything but a short ride.

    To watch me run would be comparable to watching a water balloon roll. It's more of a lope, lope, lope. Lmbo

    LOL!! She really didn't look that fast to me, but maybe when she was younger she was!

    Maybe, when she said she raced them, she was speaking about her attempts to CATCH the horse out in the pasture.. and as everyone has said, that would be an impossible race for the person to win.. thus your girl never actually having ridden a horse!!

    A barn near by had some irrigation probelms that flooded all of their paddocks so we've got a herd of mini donkeys visiting for a while. I took Bloo over to see how he would do and it was the saddest thing I've ever seen. He wanted to make friends but they all just ran away from him. We went out for a little 3 mile trail. When we got back to the barn the donkeys were braying so I put Bloo back in with the donkeys and they couldn't get enough of him. I might kidnap one when they go back for the amusement of watching Bloo interact with it.

    539.6 miles to date.

    Bloo that is hilarious. Sarge nearly had a meltdown over mules one day after we first got him. I know his previous owner had rode in this same trail ride with him with mules but Sarge is not a fan of their braying!

    So jealous of those miles too!!! I took Biscuit for a walk down the ranch road today. Haven't had problems catching him since Wednesday but yesterday he was acting really head shy while I was letting him eat. I think "Invasions of the Horse Snatchers" took my Biscuit and replaced him with "Goose" (that was Biscuit's former name and he was a scared stiff horse when I first got him).

    Monday is the day...counting down to whether I can ride or not. Hoping Doctor Murphy says yes! I think I will take him chocolate cake to sweeten the deal
