Last weekend, DH and I went down to Virginia for the Fort Valley Endurance rides. Its the last leg of the Old Dominion Triple Crown series, which Sultan was eligible for. I was able to find a couple horses to ride, much to my delight.

On Friday, I did 50 miles on Gamer's half-sister Tuesday - only her 2nd 50 ever!

On Saturday, I rode a true trailmaster (with over 5100 endurance miles) on the 30 miler with DH and Sultan. We had a blast!

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

Dawn--I'm glad you had a great time at Fort Valley, I'll have to watch your video tomorrow!

Today I finally got to go for a "ride" with Selena since our 30 mile ride. Unfortunately she got a bad abscess a few days after being home (most likely from loosing a back Easyboot during out ride and having to go barefoot on the dirt roads for a little while) so we've been treating that. It finally burst yesterday after vicious soaking & poulticing so she was pretty close to sound today. We went for a quick walking ride around the racetrack...a grand total of one mile !! LOL She was full of energy for the first 5 minutes ("let's go, let's go, let's go!) but then realized we were just going in a circle and started to relax, but the foot felt good!

A picture taken of some "midnight doctoring/soaking"...fun, fun, fun

Me, Meg, & the girls

Cute pictures EL6. Sorry to hear of the abscess, but glad she is well on the road to recovery.

I finally was able to ride Chivas for a bit yesterday, with a ton of interuptions! I think Chivas is starting to enjoy the phone ringing, he stares at it like he wants to talk too! Maybe to thank them for the interuption??

I finally got the Torsion saddle padded up so I can use it, basically made my own inserts to add a bit more supportive cushions since that saddle is more like a cushy blanket. I think it is going to work out fine.

I tried to put on the new Zilco crupper, and Chivas looked like he had been hit with a cattle prod! He clamped that tail down, dropped his butt nearly to the ground and tried to take off! Hahahaha sure wish I had been able to film that!

But somehow I messed up my GPS, I got to some weird screen that I couldn't read and I couldn't get off of it without pulling the batteries and shutting it down. So when I turn it back on, the readout says we are walking at 8.6mph! Super horse! So, I push some more buttons and now we are cruising along at 1.2 mph. Drat. Hope I can fix it...

EnduranceLover--I'm totally feeling the zebra pad ;) Very cute pics, everyone! I keep lurking on this thread for that reason ;)

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

these are pics before our ride on sat however I don't have any pics of the ride. about a mile into the ride a young inexperienced rider was fighting with the horse she was riding, that belonged to me, and she backed her into us. For reasons im still unsure of the other horse blew up and kicked me and my mare ...my mare was a rock star!!! just got us out of the way and we all collected ourselves. I however wasn't as lucky, she got me dead on in side of he shin, didn't break but have bruising on the bone and separated the muscle length wise.....ouch ouch ouch!!!
