Celeste, Pam is definitely going to need a confidence builder if she decides to get back into riding. Hopefully she will since she knows you have that kind of horse for her to ride.

Denise, I am so sorry that Barry is not doing well. I don't know a whole lot about Crohns but a diagnosis of something at this point would make you feel better.

I'm glad she is going to recover without even needing surgery, and hopefully while lying around in bed she will remember the good times riding and be willing to ride again (just maybe on a different horse!)

I hope that Pam with trade that horse. I don't think she has much hope as a trail horse. She is better suited to rodeo bronc riders.

Oreo - Barry has had gastric issues since he was a teen and they said years ago it was Crohns. Then doctors said early this year it wasn't and now it is. Just want him to feel better. I want to go camping!

I did 11.86 miles today. I am up to 76.20 since Sept when I started counting! Today's ride was 2hrs and 52 min with an average speed of 4.1 mph and a max of 14.2.

We practiced jumping on our ride and I set up my camera - quality isn't great but still fun! We also went across a new bridge today and had only one major spook. We also had a small water crossing which Roux did without a problem :)

And an ear shot!

I will have to live the same way. We are moving back to the city to a house and 5 acres, but its in the city so not like I can ride the neighborhood like I do here.

We are lease purchasing this one so I don't have to worry about another owner not paying the note and letting the house foreclose under me like the last 2.

I should be able to do a complete purchase on it by the end of next year and never worry about moving again for a very very very very long time. We will be moving between now and the end of the Thanksgiving day weekend. I will be 3 miles from work so that will allow me more time to work with the boys before dark and then when the days get longer I can be ready to haul out to the trails.

The house is in need of some TLC and is why we were able to get such a great deal on the property. I'm hoping I can find a way to slowly fix up the house while allowing time to ride as well. This property is going to be easier to keep up than where we are leaving so that will be a huge plus.

Got on Dream for another mosey today, between the showers. Weather is supposed to get cold and nasty (weatherman even mentioned the dreaded s-word ), so not sure if I will get to ride again this weekend.

Dream thought just walking was silly enough, but when I started asking her to back up for no apparent reason in a perfectly clear open field, I really think she thought I had lost it (part of the rehab protocol is backing up like 30 steps at a time ).

It isn't cold here today but it is supposed to be later this weekend with rain tomorrow. Ugh. So wish I could just go riding somewhere in the forest so I could see the fall leaves.

Roaddy, glad you will be closer to work. That will give you more time. I wish we could move to place where I could have my boys in the backyard. it is a dream that I hope I can make come true

Got out early today for my barn time, as the weather was supposed to get worse and worse as the day wore on. It was a balmy 30, but sunny with a relatively light wind when I rode at 9 this morning. Dream was feeling mighty fine and was less than impressed at the walking pace, esp when we turned butt to the wind!

Then I worked with Gamer. DH is away and made me promise not to get on her without him being home, so we did ground work then went for a walk. Today we refreshed the joys of lunging and learned that things being dragged on the ground beside us while walking was not actually the end of the world.

The weather has unfortunately been following the forecast, so if that continues I don't expect any more pony time this weekend (tomorrow is supposed to be a high of 28 with winds over 30mph and snow). I am not ready for winter!!!
