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.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

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!
