Your girl is pretty Sunny. Glad you are joining in.

I was going riding today but my riding cousin is sick. I am going out to the barn to ride in the arena...not a trail ride but riding is very good for my legs so to the barn I go. I don't think Biscuit will mind just riding in the arena.

Thanks for the warm welcome and compliments on my goober.

Today is BEAUTIFUL. Sunny and in the mid-60s. I wanted to ride but instead roached Sunny's mane. It was her first time with clippers and she did so well, so I went ahead and turned her out when we were done instead of pushing my luck. LOL.
I am going to ride tomorrow after work, though.

We rode our little 1.5 mile trail today. It got up to about 50 degrees, so it wasn't too terribly freezing. These little rides seem to be enough to keep my horse calm. Last year at this time, she was psycho. Today, she was cool and calm. In the yard, before we rode off, two of our cats starting fighting. One of them charged straight at us to get away from the other. Neither of the horses really reacted at all. What a difference a year and a lot of rides make!

7.7 total.

Welcome Sunny! You have a beautiful mare, she looks like a sweetie pie!

Where in Bama are you?

My new Stowaway saddlebags came today! Plus an endurance sponge so I will be able to carry some suppies with me on the trails.

Anyone have some suggestions for what I should pack in my new bags?

Another rough night at work last night, and should be the same tonight cause no-one was to be discharged.

Dean and I got out today for a ride that actually resembled a real training ride!! Weather was somewhat more agreeable, with the temp a balmy 19 degrees, but windchill was 5 (a dramatic decrease in the winds, which had been 30+mph all week). Ground is again frozen solid, so footing was decent overall with only some icy places to look out for.

Got not only around the fields I have been riding in, but actually up the Sugarloaf trail. It has a mile climb that gains about 500 feet in elevation and I was pleased with the fact Dream wanted to motor up it at a solid trot (though not wanting her to overdo it, I did insist on walking part of it). She never even broke a sweat (unlike poor Sultan, who was soaked by the time we were done).

By the time we were done, I couldn't feel my feet but boy my brain (and Dream's) was happy.

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

Today was a show off day. Bloo was dancing and pacing his fence so a friend and I loaded him with some water and our trail kit and he played pack pony. I put a surcingle on him and just hooked things to that. My knee was bugging me so instead of climbing the fence I had Bloo bow and sidestep to the horse I was going out on. I think at this point the people at the barn are picking on me because they always give me the tallest horse to ride and I've got to get creative with my mounting and dismounting as not to injure myself worse. I accidentally dropped his lead out on the trail and asked him to pick it up and give it to me, which he did. Then when we got back to the barn I got on him and had him bow for me to get off. I wouldn't have used him to get off if my legs weren't frozen. I should have grabbed a fleece for myself like my friend did, oh well I love showing off so it worked.

7.8 miles to date.

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

Another 13 miles today. Breaking trail in snow again.
Total 39 miles

Got to see a bunch of bulls on the sunny hillside where the snow was not very deep
