It is funny now. At the time that I was trying not to die an untimely death, it wasn't quite as funny. I believe that the dear thing is bipolar. How can she be totally whacko one day, and walk quietly, relaxed, loose reins, and be totally chilled the next?

Took my daughter up last night and did 14 miles. A lot at a trot or canter. The horses are getting in shape, since they didn't sweat much even though it was 103° when I loaded them in the trailer.

Sorry the video is a really shaky, Can't figure out how to hold the camera steady, holds the reins and duck trees

Nice ride Painted Horse! Your video is a lot more steady than mine, good job!

Looks like a lot of fun but jeez, 103 degrees??? I thought 92 was bad...

All my horses are sore from their trimming yesterday. Drambuie can hardly walk, he is pulling up his right hind like a stork. I guess he re-injured it last night. He looked so good on Thursday I was planning to ride him as soon as the rain cleared up. I don't know what I am going to do about him.

Chivas was even acting ouchy and so we mostly walked tonight and stopped at 3.1 miles.

But its a dry heat as they say.

The horses never got lathered up. They did get a little wet on their necks, under the saddles and under the tail. A thin wet sweat evaporates so much faster than a heavy lather. Helps the horses to cool off.

She wasn't in heat. I think that she is just insane. Well actually, she has not been around strange horses and she just got so nervous. Then she got the stick in her tail and it beat on her and convinced her that she was surely going to die. If I am ever going to use her on group rides, I need to get her around other horses more. My friend loads her horse in the trailer and takes her to rodeos that she doesn't plan to ride in just so the horse can see new things. She has seen a lot more of the world than my horse has.

Yeah, sure. File that in the same bin as "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help you."

Were you riding in the 103, or at a higher/cooler elevation? It's about the same temperature here, and I can just about manage to sit out under the shade trees. The horses might (or might not) be able to handle the heat, but I sure can't.

Something bit me on the thigh yesterday...I don't know what bit me, but it is spreading a lot and doesn't look like any other bite I've ever had. Not really big swelling, but weird redish area spreading out like a puddle and darker red, hard area by the bite. It's making me nervous...

That's the beauty of where I live. 20 minutes towing the trailer and I'm 2000-3000 foot higher and usually 10-15° cooler.

It was 103° at home when I loaded the horses into the trailer at 5:00pm. It was 93° at the trailhead at elevation. But felt much cooler since it was on the east side of the mountain and had so many trees for shade. If I can just get out of the direct sun, it's tolerable. But it was still 89° at 10:00pm when I pulled back into the yard coming home. Summer is definitely here.

Saturdays ride was an hour away and I did mid day. And even at 9,000 foot it was plenty warm. I was constantly looking to get into the shade of trees. Guess it's time to drive just a little farther and hit the 10,000 foot trails.

If I can get into the canyons and under trees it's tolerable.
