Lets just finish you off then.

Crossing the bridge over the Green River. Basically start of the trail

I took all my horses but didn't have enough riders. Not wanting to leave any of my horses out from the exercise, I packed my mare with lunch and fishing gear and turned her loose to follow us.

On the Ridge top before dropping down into Roaring Fork

Clear Creek. We fished here for a while

Horses waiting for us while we fished.

I'm trying to decide whether I hate you or not.

Amen to that! But you also made an excellent point about snow...the only answer is to summer out West, then return before the snow starts!

I think if she continues to post pictures like that and I can live through her, I'll love it!! That is just beautiful and exactly what DH and I want to do. Our youngest is a sophomore in high school, so we have 3 years then we plan to go on every trail ride we can. We probably won't leave Oklahoma but we can dream!

You coulda called, you know

Makes me sorta glad I didn't bother to take any pictures yesterday. Nice scenery, but just not in the same league. Was the first time we'd been out in about 3 weeks, 'cause of the heat (where we ride is only about 6000 ft or so).

OMG gorgeous pictures!!! Glad your mare will follow...my luck my horse would be ate by a bear or run off

I didn't get to ride but I did do Biscuit's feet. OMG his back feet were way overly long. Hubby joined me out there after I was almost through and we went down to visit Sarge. Barry was lounging him on his lead rope and Sarge bucked up and kicked. I told hubby not to lounge him on such a short rope. Sarge isn't mean but he was just feeling his Wheaties because he hasn't been ridden since June. Does Hubby listen to me? Certainly not!

Great photos, Painted Horse but I'm very envious of you nonetheless.

We are experiencing the 100* heat index with 57 to 65% humidity here so I have not been riding much more than a lap around the pasture with someone sitting in the saddle. We are launching a 284" offshore vessel that will go out to the oil rigs for a Brazilian company today. This means I get off work early to go home and do what Denise did for Biscuit. Trusty, Doc and Sugar all need a little rasping, but Jems and Little man need a trimmed. I'm sure I will be saturated with sweat by the time I'm done with a couple of them as I doubt I will get them all done today. I also have a lot of tall water logged grass to cut. Oh, don't let me forget, I have 300' of Electric fence to string across the far pasture so the horses can be turned out on that tall grass.

I miss riding so much, but not willing to hurt myself or them in these kind of hot days. Just walking them around one lap has them wet all over. I can't wait til I get all the big chores caught up so I can spend more time building mine and their endurance to work in the heat slowly.

PH, as always the places you ride are breathtaking. I find it unreal that you can't find someone to go with you to fill the spare saddle!!!

Unfortunately, my saddle time has been drastically reduced do to an unexpected dismount. Finally got Gamer's abscess under control and thought I would have a quick ride Wednesday evening since the weather was lovely. DH was at a meeting, so I planned to stay on the property. However, about 10 seconds after mounting, Sultan came tearing out of the barn like a bat out of hell. Gamer spooked and I was turning her around to look at him when there was some insanely loud noise from the other side of the barn (later found out someone felled a tree) and Gamer lost her mind. She went from head up, eyes bugged to NFR saddle bronc.

I stayed on several bucks, but she was heading right for the fence (in the direction spazzy Sultan had galloped off) and I wasn't totally sure she was going to stop, so I bailed. In the greatest of ironies, Sultan skidded to a halt as I hit the ground and something about his movement spooked Gamer away from him - and onto me. She was still bucking as she moved across me and landed on me several times before continuing her bucking spree around the yard. It was only when George and Dream - who hadn't run at all - called her that she finally circled around to the fence and stopped bucking.

I picked myself up, caught Gamer, took her to the round pen and worked her on the ground a bit (I didn't feel it was safe to get back on, as I was pretty dizzy and not able to walk all that well). By the time we got to the pen she was calm and I only worked her for a few minutes as her focus was already back on me. Then I limped into the house to evaluate myself.

Amazingly, nothing is broken. Judging from the soreness/bruising/swelling, she got my right thigh at least 3 times and my left one once. My right ankle also took some kind of hit, as did my head, as I have had a vague headache since the accident (no marks on my helmet tho, so I can't figure it out). I was very lucky nothing was broken, but it shot any chance I had of getting Dream to the race this past weekend. So bummed.

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.
