    Greentree, I know how you feel. Bloo's trot is the bane of my existence. It's so bouncy. It took me a long time to gain the muscles I needed to sit it, but sadly there was no ab flattening.

    Just wanted to let everyone know it's Bloo's 36th today! Everyone's got treats and home made goodies for his party later. He's going to be spoiled rotten today.

    I didn't go on a trail ride today, but I did ride for a little bit in the arena. The Princess was very good today. Maybe I'll be able to put in at least a couple of miles tomorrow.

    Another 5-6 miles on the new horse today. First time going with a third horse - the woman I got her from said she gets antsy around more than one horse, but she was fine. Trotted & cantered a bit, wandered in the brush and crossed a couple of creeks (but no rocket-assisted jumps this time ) In fact, everything went just great until we were about 100 yards from the trailer, when she stepped on something, stumbled, and almost went down - and I fell off But we're both in one piece/

    Fall Colors!

    I went on two lovely rides this weekend!

    Friday Roux and I went by ourselves we did 8.9 Miles in 2hrs and 45 min.
    Today Roux and I went with Gus and my mom and we did 9.2 Miles in 3 hours. For a grand total of 18.1 miles this weekend. And 45.1 since I have started to keep track.

    Here is some of our fall colors from this weekend:

    Wow SNOW? Good heavens that is why we live in the south. I think snow is so beautiful but I wouldn't want to live where it snows on a regular basis.

    Hubby Barry actually went riding with me and Kellie today. Sarge was so glad to get out on a ride poor baby. He hasn't been off of the ranch since June. I don't think Barry has rode him maybe once since June. He behaved like a little doll today. We rode out in the back of Tyrrell Park and we haven't been out there since last April the day before my surgery. The grass was high but it was nice out there. Saw some little pigs and some boxes for birds to nest in up on poles. Don't know what kind of birds they were for but that is a birding sanctuary so who knows?

    I tried standing up to trot when we started out and could do it for about 15 feet and then would have to slow down and sit. Each time I could do it a little bit longer. We came back across the big bridge and were trotting. Kellie and Barry were actually loping so they were up ahead of me and I was so proud of myself and my balance! I was standing up trotting without pitching forward. Bad news is that I lost my Samsung Galaxy phone We rode back and forth on a 1/2 mile or more strip looking for it. Never found it. Dang...oh well, my daughter had said it was a POS and she would pay for me to get a new one if I paid the taxes and down payment! Woot. She works for T-Mobile and just took over the phone bill after me paying $250 a month for years for smart phones.

    I bought a pretty snazzy phone and got all kinds of discounts on accessories but the phone was big bucks. I won't let her actually pay for it - she can just pay the phone bill!!!

    Biscuit and I probably rode right at 9.5 miles today - didn't have a garmin and since I lost the phone no pictures of the bird boxes! Dang!!!

    My son's fiance Jessica and I rode together today. We went 2.2 miles. She rode my daughter's old appaloosa Shadow and I rode The Psycho Princess. Jessica was a little nervous but she did a great job. The Psycho kept wanting to shake her head and get the bit to go with it. The difference with this bit is that I could pull hard enough to correct her without her going psycho. She would not lead the way to start with, but she finally got brave enough. Poor old Shadow just quietly plodded along. We mostly walked but we trotted a little bit. This was Jessica's second trail ride and I believe third time on a horse. I'm trying to keep things slow and easy so she can learn without getting hurt because I want to turn her into my riding buddy.

    Total 106.2 miles

    Oh, sure. It was a slow fall - just caught me off-balance 'cause I was looking to see what she'd stepped on, and I had plenty of time to do a nice tuck & roll. That was the first time I've fallen off, so my friends say that makes me an official horse-person now

    On the lost phone, did you think of trying to call it?

    Roux - I sure envy your fall colors. One of the few things I miss about the northeast. About all we get around here are aspens, and while they're a pretty gold, I do miss the reds and oranges.

    James, my cousin and hubby were calling it I just bought a Galaxy 3 Note or maybe it is Note 3! Cost a bazillion dollars and I believe I need my dang head examined. I did buy this last night Large Pocket SPIbelt | Fitness & Travel Belt I don't want to lose another phone. This is the third phone that I have lost horseback riding. I never lose anything generally speaking so this really chaps my backside. I may temporarily misplace something but lose it? Not this chick. So I got the Spibelt and so I shouldn't have this problem again.

    Not glad you came off but I am sure you are more than officially a horse person!!!

    The fall colors are glorious. I love fall - we sometimes have pretty colors from the tallow trees - reds, oranges, golds and deep purples - but it is pretty short lived and while there are plenty of them here, sometimes we still don't get the fabulous colors if it hasn't had enough rain or some other kind of bs!

    Those fall colors are to die for.

    Do you hard core trail riders go out in the snow??
