I rode 15 miles on Rossi on Saturday and ponied my moms mare, Fire. Bella had the weekend off cause she is doing 50 miles on Friday. Sunday we packed the trailer to head to GA for our ride!! Yay!! 50 miles on Bella on Friday and 25 miles on Rossi on Saturday! And I also heard of sad news from the Broxton Bridge ride in SC. We did not go bc it was so close to the ride my mom manages this weekend. Some friends of our horses got out due to other horses getting out and tearing down their horses electric pens.This was around 9:30 pm thursday night. They headed to HWY 601 (which is a very busy highway) and one was hit by a car twice and died. The other one was found Friday morning, a little scratched up, but otherwise okay. My heart really goes out to them. It is very scary to think about stuff like this happening at rides. Just because your horse respects the fence does not mean another horse won't break your horse out. There was a ride 3 weeks ago and a lady got seperated from her horse on the first loop and they still have not found him. Everybody pray for both of these people.

OMG that is horrible. I so feel for those people. The only endurance ride I tried (major fail!!!) we took our own panels and set up their pens. Lot of work to secure them to the trailer, set them up and take down and secure to the trailer again - but it is worth it. I can't imagine if I lost my Biscuit like that. Y'all would have to scrape me up off the ground.

We use the electric tape and it is always on, but that does not always stop another horse from tearing our fence down. Thankfully my mom can hear an electric tape fence zing from a mile away! LOL. In all the years I have been doing this my mom always hears when another horse gets out. She hears the "zing" wire makes when it is popped.

Have been out of town and away from my horses for a bit , but did squeeze in a 6.45 mile ride right before I left. Even finished the last mile and half bridle-less with my gelding, Legend. Hoping our weather holds out so I can get some longer rides in soon!

Congrats on your rides. Would love to hear the details.

Was horrified to hear about Dev.. I cannot imagine having to deal with such a thing, forget it being a horse Theresa raised herself. I am glad Tempe was uninjured after all Scott has been thru with her.

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

Dean and I got out again on Sunday. We had a touch of snow overnight, but the wind was relatively calm, so we went out anyway.

Yes, I know! I am just shocked. It is so sad. It kinda makes you worry about this kind of things happening. It sounds like Dev was hit in a period of an hour after they got out. And twice.. That poor baby. It makes me very sad. I am glad Tempe is ok and did not get hurt.

This is so horrible...I hope he did not suffer too much. Prayers for all involved.

I'm going to go kiss my horses twice and give them a big hug.

Horses getting killed by cars is one of my most terrifying fears. We had a neighbor that lost two horses at once after they got out. The driver was seriously injured and sued the neighbor. I felt a lot more sorry for these horses than I did the owner because he did not even try to keep his fence well maintained.

It is really hard when you are out and about traveling. The horse are excited and they can undo your best efforts. This is so sad. I really feel bad for the person that lost the horse.

I have some good news, Drambuie is much better today! Whatever was wrong with him seems to have cleared up. He was moving nice and forward and gave me a big walk @ 4.2 mph and a trot up to 9.6 mph. I was soooo happy! He sure lost condition though, and was tired out after only 2.4 miles. I need to work on his endurance now!
