I was planning on a four mile ride today but as I was grooming Sun I noticed she was covered in bite and kick marks. They all had heat so I decided to play it safe and give her the day off.

I got out and rode in the arena today. Biscuit and I jogged/trotted round and round. Worked on yielding across the arena both ways, he did an excellent job on that, side passing, not so good but not horrible, turning on the forehand, good job and backing up - which he was absolutely a total jackass about that.

Such a waste of a weekend horseback riding wise. Gorgeous weather and no one to ride with. Dang.....

I sure wish I could have come to ride with you! I have been dying to come ride and see all your critters...well maybe not those huge spiders close up!

I have been working all weekend and the patients are...shall we say...difficult on many levels? Had a code this morning too, darnit. Not looking forward to tonight

I think that Denise and AnitaAnne need to move near me.

We rode our little 1.5 mile trail again. I can't believe that it is February and my total is only 9.2 miles. On the upside, the girls have been being total ladies. Such sweeties. The weather was beautiful, but windy.

Anita Ann and Celeste - omg we could have so fun. I hated not being able to get out to ride this weekend but hubby is under the weather, cousin was sick and other riding buddy had to work yesterday and was doing superbowl stuff with her hubby today. The weather was just gorgeous - lol story of my life!

I went to go on a short trail ride on Sammy this afternoon, didn't get far when he came up really lame. So I had to get off and walk him home, I hope he comes good for Friday.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.
But I will always love you Jimmy R.I.P

Well my afternoon was made much much better when I decided to ride Apache since my ride with Sammy failed. It wasn't a trail ride, but it was still awesome if this keeps up I am really looking forward to riding him on Friday.

He would be the best horse to learn on if he was more tolerant when ridden because he won't do what you want you without correct riding. Every ride is workout lol. Only his attitude lets him down because he gets really pissy at too many rider mistakes. I was over the moon when I rode him forward and willing without one hint at a tantrum, so happy!!!

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.
Chapstick is always in my bag! And a flashlight and a little tool set that has a knife, scissors ect...
