Woo hoooooo!!!! I can add 1.8 miles to my yearly total now! Kellie and I got out to Tyrrell Park today to ride. The woods had some muddy spots and lots of hard dried ROUGH spots where hogs had gone through. Had to go around the pipe line in two spots, saw 3 little pigs and Biscuit and I played spider polo quiet successfully. Nearly got a face full of spiders several times as they can be hard to see in the late evening.
I didn't have any trouble mounting or dismounting today. I realized last night that my stirrups had been adjusted longer by the girl who was riding Biscuit and so yesterday when I rode I had a little bit of trouble getting on and off. My horse was an angel the entire ride which was wonderful.
On the way home a man was broke down on the side of the road with a horse in the trailer and he flagged me down. I had to circle back around the highway and eventually loaded his horse and hauled him and his lady friend around the corner from my barn. The horse loaded up the ramp with just a little coaxing. She seemed to be a really sweet mare.
Kellie and I are going tomorrow evening too. My back isn't bothering me at all but we were just walking. It felt good to be back in our woods riding. They need some attention though - lots of ROUGH spots and stickers.
