Cross your fingers, please! I got a good call from out of state on the Clydesdale. Sounds like a great home for her....Hope I don't get frostbite on my fingers washing those feathers!

My horses want that spa in their pasture, Roadyy!! That sure is a nice piece of property. So jealous of the camellias!!

I've been gone for a while. Dealing with the loss of my boy. Bloo got into a fight trying to protect Pretty Boy from a loose horse. The horse broke the fence into their paddock and Bloo did his best to keep his buddy safe. Pretty Boy is fine, not a single scratch but Bloo's injuries were too much. It was a tough choice but we'd had 13 good years together and it was time to let him go. My companion, that has carried me emotionally and physically for over a decade is gone and that's something that's hard to bear. He was my first horse and my only horse until recently. He taught me about myself and showed me where I needed to change. So remember to cherish your moments and hug your horses because they might be here today but tomorrow they could be gone. Sorry for the sad sappy post. But I took a lot of time for granted, I assumed he would always be there, that I could saddle up and hit the trails any time I wanted. Knowing I can't do that anymore is heartbreaking. This year alone we rode over 500 miles, showed everyone that a girl an an old horse could rough it just as well as anyone, and made a little girl's dream come true. I wish you all the best in your futures and hope nothing but blue skies and wonderful rides for all of you. Hug your horses for me or give them an extra treat because its little things like that you miss most when they're gone.

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

I'm sorry for your loss Bloo

I have been gone a while also, but just read through what I missed and sounds like you all had a good Christmas. Now onto the New Year!!!

I starting this year with no goals for my mileage, because to be honest I didn't know what to expect with it being our first season. Selena surprised me more and more with her capabilities during our training and competition and I was so proud of her for taking home 2nd place in her first 15 mile competitive trail ride, 1st place in her second 15 mile competitive trail ride, and 1st place in her first limited distance ride of 30 miles. She gives it her all and has gained so much of my trust. I'm not sure what this new season will bring, but I can't help but be hopeful

2013 Mileage = 468.09
Next year's goal...500+!!!

Endurance--You and Selena look very stylish in red. (:

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Bloo, you have my deepest condolences for your lose. I hope 2014 finds you a new found friendship.

EL6, you two do look good together and congratulations on the progress made so far. Here is to many miles of riding over the next year for all of us.

Thank you both :)

I'm so excited to start a new year with all of you. While most of us have never met one another, I feel like we are sort of a "little family" on these threads. I enjoy hearing about all your stories and accomplishments as well seeing so much encouragement and support when times are tough. You are a great group!

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