    I wouldn't get out of bed if it were 7 degrees!

    I am hoping to get to ride tomorrow, even if it is just a mile.

    Went out with Drift and a good friend this morning! My college courses begin again on Tuesday, so I am trying to use this weekend to get back into what I call my "school schedule". Which means riding with my friend at 5 30 in the morning.

    I was running late this morning- pulled up right at 6 15. We went to go get the boys and caught the best sunrise! I love waking up with Drift. Makes it all worth it! According to the GPS on my phone we did 2.5 miles this morning. Rode from about 7 until 11. Ambled around at some parts- just enjoying the morning! Drifter even proved to me that he still wanted to jump. And as you can see, the dog enjoyed himself as well :)

    Looking forward to keeping up with everybody's trail stories and pictures :)

    I am so glad you started this thread again QOS. I had planned on doing endurance training and racing with my Arabian, but sadly, I am needing to sell him - He is a bit too energetic and bull-headed for someone like me who is just starting to get into the swing of things after being off a horses back for about 4 years. Luckily though, I have my QH Rose. :) She has proven to be a wonderful mare, and I really look forward to trail riding with her this year!!!

    Miles: .5 :)

    Here we are right after our short ride. She didn't even break a sweat!

    extra miles strategy

    My strategy for riding more miles in 2013 is to add extra miles in the winter. I am not fond of cold wet weather, and I usually don't ride much for 2 months in the winter. This year I am trying to at least hop on bareback for a quick ride out and back across the neighboring fields every day. It adds maybe 20 minutes to my barn chores. Not a big deal. Adds at least a mile every day, and boosts my spirits to get through winter! Once I'm on the horse I often decide to ride further. So far, so good. I suspect I will skip days when it is raining, extra windy, or much below 20 degrees. NOT a fan of winter. :/

    So far I am up to 9.6 miles... goal for January is a modest 50 miles, then start ramping up with the improved weather.

    Of course I will make up lots of extra miles on long rides during the spring/summer/fall. I can't wait. Come on spring!
