I haven't gone on a trail ride in a while, but I did get to ride in the arena for a few minutes. I bought a new Abetta endurance saddle. It fits my horse like a glove. It could not have been better if I had paid for a custom fit! It fits me pretty well too.
I only rode for a short while and both me and the horse were soaked. They say not to ride if the temperature + humidity = 150. Well, it did. I will be very happy when fall gets here!
Spent most of this week in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming. Camp was at 8000 foot elevation and we crossed a few ridgelines in the 10,000 foot range. Beautiful are. But a thunderstorm Thursday night had a lightening strike caused fire about 20 miles away, And that put a lot of smoke and some ash in the skies on Friday and Saturday.
Painted Horse, your pictures are all breathtakingly beautiful. They give me a huge urge to pack everything up and relocate there.
Don't talk that way. We need to remember those harsh winters they have. If you keep up all that "move to Utah" kind of talk, we will be sunk. Remember the mantra. "I don't want to shovel snow. I don't want to shovel snow."
I know I NEVER want to shovel snow!!! That is why I live on the coast! It is blazing hot and humid as all get out right now. I couldn't ride this morning due to going over to my mom's to give my sister a break. We have all been working at someone being with her and getting her whatever she WILL eat. She is showing a little improvement and had the biopsy Friday. We won't know the results til Wednesday or so.
Going out to do Biscuit's feet and ride in the arena.
Our last ride was June 30th. I'm giving Miss Lacy a break as well as giving her time for her back to rest.
Normal for us, we don't ride much during the heat of the summer....That said, we're having a mild but wet summer here especially considering the last two record breaking summers.....I'll take this any time....
