James, did you stay on? If so, you had fun. You'll figure that out when your heart rate comes back down to normal.

Didn't ride yesterday but Biscuit helped me straighten up the tack closet of the Brenderup. Wish I had had water and some cleaners down there - I could have actually cleaned something instead of just straightening it up!!
Biscuit was only mildly curious about this!

Biscuit is a good helper.jpg

Well, maybe I could get to enjoy it, in a few years when I finally learn how to do it properly. I might even have enjoyed it on Ellie, because I knew and trusted her. But this was the new horse, young and not much trail experience, who my friend (sadistic woman #2) said we should bring along slowly (Yeah, right: we see how long that idea lasted ), and only the second time I'd done a whole ride on her without a lead rope.

But I have to say that Nova did pretty good, despite the screaming human on her back. Yes, I did manage to stay on, I think because I was so busy trying to find the brakes that I didn't have time to fall off

James, it sounds like you did a great job. I also would have screamed. I think that you might want to find somebody else to ride with; somebody that understands about the dangers of green horses on the trail.

Denise, he would be more helpful if there were a wedding cake in there!

James, sounds like fun to me, but DH would agree with you!

Kinda like me going "Oh S**t" the other day when Oreo started trotting the last part of the downhill. I wasn't sure exactly what position to take and wasn't real happy, but I survived. My friends thought something serious had happened because I ended up yelling it louder than I meant to.

Denise, Biscuit looks like he's deciding how to fold that back up! I love a helpful horse

Cool to see ur tack closet, it is small, but bigger than mine 'cause my Brenderup doesn't have tack storage in it! I really wanted the Baron or the Royal when I bought it, but I couldn't get financing for the bigger models.

James, next time put those sadists on the new horse...and let loose with a YeeHaw as you charge past...Nova may go loopy, but you'll be safe

james, if the screaming human didn't cause her to dump you I think you've got a good on on you're hands. Though I do like AnitaAnne's idea.

I thought about riding but my tack trunks caught my eye so I figured I'd give them a good look through. I found 7 different reins that didn't match each other or any of my bridles and were never mine but no one knows where they came from. I also found a cooler, quarter sheet, and stable sheet that no one has ever seen before. It's amazing what sort of breeding happens in these boxes. I wish Bloo and Pretty Boy would have helped me clean those out.
And a few pictures from the first trail with Tribble.



Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

OMG those pictures are GORGEOUS!!!! Yep, James if they don't freak out with screaming like crazy they are a good one. Hahahah Biscuit has had me screaming and flinging around when that spider landed on me. OMG Biscuit was a saint. I am sure he told Elan his owner was a little challenged

Anita, the tack closet is really made for English saddles and putting two western saddles in it is a challenge. I am going to go through my tack bag and put duplicate brushes in the trailer and not take the tack bag any longer. It is just too crowded in there. I have 2 sets of hoof boots, extra bridle, zip ties, powder for me, little bit of baling twine in case of something (LOL don't know what that would be!) vet wrap and a bucket of treats for the horses. I threw out a big fanny pack backpack kinda thing, all kinds of balms, some trash I forgot to throw away. I need to tighten up the trailer and only haul what I will actually need. It is little in that closet!
