Here is a video of us working Jems on Saturday. Mind you, this is first rider she has carried in 2 years. Infact is the same rider from the first time, but with alot better results this time after groundwork. Sorry it took so long to get the video uploaded, but getting the phone to download it to yt was not alot of fun.lol

I have lost my nice evening day light (allready *whine*), got super busy at school and took a part time job so I have not got the miles in this week and last that I would have liked but...

Look what I got in the mail yesterday!!!! ( I can't wait to go for a real test ride with them!) This is my mom's horse Gus who gets a little tender. Now he has hoof protection I can start getting the miles in on both horses!



CUTE CUTE baby! I love the name. Valencia is a common name here but I haven't heard it for a horse before! I love it!

Yes I do Roadyy its awesome too becuz we can jump off the trail and go "off road'n" and just hit another road over the ridge...all forest service, no motorized vehicles allowed.... lots of old logging roads that, to answer your question Zexious, are great to gallop down ...truly blessed to live in such an awesome place. We honestly go down the lain cross the hwy and oh la!!
I need to get a little camera though so I can get some good action shots lol the cell phone isn't all that good for that, my thumb always gets in the way hehehe

We are having my youngest daughter's b'day party this Saturday evening and will include horse rides among other things. Do you think those treks around the yard will count towards the miles? Lol

We are having much cooler weather now and I have spent the last couple days on a tractor bush hogging and collecting all the fell limbs in the pastures. Woke up to 49* with all the house windows open. AHHHHH Hopefully next week I will be able to start riding so I can enjoy these cooler evenings.

Great job on the ride w/Selena!

I am lucky to have "open range" here & unlimited riding right out my front gates. Have to be careful w/hunting season just around the corner, though. There are a lot of houses, and many dogs (some loose) in the area. No matter where you ride-each place has it's challenges. Happy trails to all!

Hay everyone, so glad to hear many of you are getting in some ride time, keep the pictures coming, they are great! Love the one of Gamer on the tarp, if ever a horse looked proud of herself

But first of all...EL6, WOW!!! A belated HUGE Congrats on your great ride! What a thrill to win your first 30 mile ride!! I wonder if that has ever been done before? WOW!! Plus your mare looks wonderful and so pretty!

I have had good news/bad news

Unfortunately I have found homeschooling to be more time consuming than I had thought or planned on. So I have not been able to ride much at all, just quick rides around the pasture, darnit. Chivas has a hay belly so big he looks pregnant! I don't know what he is finding to eat because the pasture is sparse right now.

Plus they are so furry, I can't believe how cold it got so suddenly. It was down to 36 degrees last night! Brrr Too cold for the south in October...

But my good news is I found some hay! Yippee! It is supposed to be delivered Saturday am. I haven't seen it yet, and its Bermuda hay which I don't normally feed, but I am hoping it is good stuff. We have been out of hay since May and I've been feeding bagged Alphafa for months now. I wasn't sure if I'd find any at all, much less delivered, so I am glad to have anything right now. It rained so much this growing season, there wasn't time to cut much.

Finding hay is a good thing! I got a deal on the last 4 bales of grass hay at a local seller. The horse eats it just great-the donkey , not so much.

Thank you all for the congrats...it was a great way to end our season.

Today we got SNOW I am totally not ready for it yet. The temperature has been averaging 50 during the day and 20s at night so Selena & I have been bundled up. I'm thinking that we may only get a few more trail rides in before winter really sets in this year, which means moving our riding into the indoor. I can hear the DQs complaining already

I hope the cold weather is holding off for the rest of you...ride for me & post lots of pics!

Total = 462.48
