Kellie and I got out today. Perfect weather - 61 degrees - no humidity - no wind blowing. Just perfect blue skies.

Lots of mushy places but we stayed on the banks of the bayou - the woods still have standing water.

My little great niece is being bullied at school so I insisted she would love horses and piss on the nasty bunch at school . My nephew in law brought her to the park today to get acquainted with Biscuit. She has never been around horses - she brushed his mane, gave treats to
Him and Elan, and then hopped on and I walked her around to see if this is something she would like to do. My cousin has a small saddle for her and a mare that had health issues that a little ride would be just the ticket. I may have created a riding buddy!

Kellie and I rode 5 miles today after Whitney left. So much fun!!

Here is my little great niece with Biscuit

The weather here continues in to be crazy. Yesterday was almost 50, with a stiff (but warm) wind, and full sun. The snow we got earlier in the week was melting like mad, leaving a sloppy mess behind. Knowing we wouldn't get any real training done, decided to go out bareback!

DH, who has only been riding a few years, had never ridden bareback before. I was a little concerned the wind would make Sultan silly, but we started out on the property until everyone was more comfortable. [Really, Sultan couldn't have cared less, he was a really good boy.]








We had hoped to get out again today, but the 40 mph freezing cold wind changed our minds quickly.


2013 mileage
01/03/13 dream 1.95 miles 4.4 mph 1.95 total miles
01/06/13 dream 6.56 miles 4.1 mph 8.51 total miles
01/07/13 sultan 6.77 miles 4.8 mph 15.28 total miles
01/10/13 dream 6.55 miles 5.7 mph 21.83 total miles
01/11/13 george 7.06 miles 5.7 mph 28.89 total miles
01/12/13 dream 4.83 miles 4.1 mph 33.72 total miles
01/19/13 dream 2.34 miles 3.1 mph 36.06 total miles


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

Hello ! Just joining this thread, planning on keeping track of my miles this year. I am just recovering from surgery, and was sidelined from riding for 6 weeks, but was able to get my first ride in yesterday! Only did 2 miles, but hope to be adding to that soon. I have two geldings that I adore, one who is 8 and well seasoned trail horse, the other is my colt who will be 3 this year and we will be adding miles to him as well. :) Looking forward to tracking miles and sharing pics with everyone!

I live in the Midwest, so winter riding is not ideal, but I am just too addicted to riding to wait until Spring! I use an Android app called My Tracks, to track miles, etc.

Did someone on this thread say they had a logging spreadsheet? I would be interested in using that, I thought I had read that somewhere.

I can't see any pictures and none on the avatars either! Dang. What is up with that? Ok...now I can see them. They are lagging behind and all this week I have seen green bars rolling where the avatars are supposed to be. Thought I was losing my mind.

Had a good lazy ride today in the windy, humid, drizzly weather. Lost the back of my phone during the ride and hadto drive back afterwards to find it which I luckily did. The ride was 3.48 miles long and I have some pictures of the ponies we met along the way.

Total
Sammy: 31.34 miles
Apache: 1.86 miles

A bad photo but this pony is adorable and I think he would barely reach 8hh and Sammy is always like especially if it squeals lol.

This is another pony further down the road who had some other horsie buddies.

Now this mare(Chestnut) is funny every time I ride past them she can't decide how she wants to react. It's a constant change between "THAT SEXY MAN IS BACK HOW DO I LOOK" to "IFYOU DON'T LEAVE I'M GOING TO EAT YOUR FACE OFF"
I love the little buckskin though I think he is very cute.
