Oreos Girl,
One of these days maybe I will be able to buy a trailer and come ride with you. Our nice little riding road has been taken over by the original "Hound of the Baskervilles". If I can get in touch with the guy he will pen it, but that is one evil dog.

You can see we had a dog with us but she is well behaved on the trails.

I am definitely going to be joining this thread. So far in 2013 I have only ridden once and it wasn't even my horse plus it was just in the front yard to get some good pictures for her adoption ad. This mare has her moments but once you get her working she is an amazing mover, so smooth and sure footed. She can be hard to handle but was a good confidence booster for me and my skill level. This was definitely a proud ride for me :)

If I could afford another horse I would adopt this beautiful lady :)

So, has everyone heard of Gilligan's Island? Remember how the song says the ship set out for a 3 hour tour?? But they never made it back??

That was us today!! We started out this morning for a 4 mile ride at Waldon Station in the Talledega Forest...and took a little detour...and got back on the wrong trail...the 16 mile loop! Jeez.

I wasn't sure we would make it out tonight!

Plus there were hunters out...I thought yesterday was the last day of hunting season!

We crossed 5 wooden bridges, saw a group of deer (3-4), 2 mountain bikers which scared the heck out of Chivas, and 2 hunters on a hill using their deer whistle on Chivas when we came around a bend!! I started screaming at that one! Jeez.

I took some pictures but my reins broke (!) so I couldn't hold both reins and take pictures too. I really need a helmet cam!

Jenny, my daughter, and her horse Spirit Dreamer, who is 22 yrs old, and Chivas & I were the only ones on horses today. Thank God the rain held off!! I was supposed to storm after lunch but we one got some sprinkles and it started raining when we got home.

I was so proud of Chivas, he went right through the puddles without pausing and over the bridges too. The last picture is the boys after the ride, they are very tired and sweaty!

I love my Brenderup! It's a 1998 model but still going strong! It doesn't have a tack area, unfortunately, but it pulls so nice and easy I never want to replace it

here's a picture at home in the backyard

Hello, all! I'm relatively new to the forum and was so excited that there's a section for trail riding. I moved my horse to a new boarding barn in September that has trails, which we haven't had access to for the past year and a half. When I saw the thread about 2012 miles, I found a Garmin Etrex Vista on Ebay so I could participate this year. Unfortunately, the weather and footing hasn't been cooperative for trail riding in the start of 2013! We finally got out today and it sure was muddy!

A little about us: I'm a 19 year old college student and during the academic year, I can only see my horse on weekends. So we won't get very high milage until summer break, but I plan on taking full advantage of being home. My mare, Lizzie, is a Morgan in her mid to late 30's. She has a benign tumor that interferes with wearing a saddle, so I ride her bareback. Liz is the most hyper horse I've ever ridden and she absolutely loves trails. She's a fantastic trail horse- she would rather put herself in tricky footing than rub my leg on a tree

So today, we got out on the trails for the first time in a few weeks. I used my GPS for the first time, which was really cool. Liz and I mostly explored today... we found a bunch of new trails! To get to most of the trails, we have to cross a small river that's about 10 feet across and over 2 feet deep. Liz went right through it, which was fantastic because she used to be really scared of running water. We explored the main trails on the other side and have a lot more trails to check out. We also came across 2 wild turkeys, which I don't think Lizzie has ever seen before, and a small herd of deer. My good girl got a little scared of the turkeys, but her spook is to stand and snort, which I appreciate! Hopefully, the weather stays nice enough for us to continue going out!

My boy is in his 30's too. I love it when people use their able bodied older horses instead of letting them go in a paddock just because they're old.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

Absolutely! Liz would immediately start wasting away if I retired her. The more I ride her, the happier, healthier and more hyper she gets! Love the oldies

1/12/13- I rode Bella 22 miles in a little under 3 hours. I was going to ride my new mare too, but she has a boo boo. So no riding for her at all this weekend. I was going to ride Bella another 22 miles on Sunday, but on Saturday my stirrup broke and fell off my saddle while i was racing a friend! I considered to just keep racing, but i do ride an ex-race horse and i need both stirrups to brace on to stop her. That was the exciting part, and the bad part was that my new horse is hurt and my saddle is broke.
