Hubby and I went up to Ebenezer this morning to ride with my cousin. We were supposed to stay overnight but it was too cold (getting down to 32 tonight and last night) for sleeping in our trailer! It was 45 degrees when we got up there and generally with the sunshine that wouldn't be real cold but it was chilly! I waited and rode out a little later with my cousin (hubby rode with the bigger group) because she has been quiet sick with an bronchitis. LOL Her husband said he was doing the geriatric ride today. We rode about 2 miles or so. Rode after lunch for about 6 miles and it we did a little trotting and jogging.

I rolled my dang ankle 3 freaking times on those little sweetgum ball thingies. OMG once I fell against the trailer, the second time if my cousin's husband hadn't been right there I would have fell and when we were leaving I stepped on one in the dark. Dang....my ankle is killing me now. This not being about to walk good is for the birds.

On the way home, every fricktard in Texas was driving down Hwy 69. Glad we got home before we got ran over!

It was 22° when I saddled up and I thought it was great. Got up to 40° as we finished the ride. The horses were sweating big time. Every time we stopped to let them blow, they would drip brown puddles under the belly. I realize just how dirty my horse is.

Went out on Bloo again. The dogs were a mess when I left them behind but I wasn't about to take one and not the other, my pit's in the cone because she spent the night licking and aggravating her cut after chewing off the vet wrap. We got 1.2 miles before it was more rain than snow and headed back. 2.4 for the day, not bad for our first trail of the year.


10.2 miles to date

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

I took advantage of the cold weather to rescue my trailer from the backyard! The ground was hard and I now have it on the driveway for easy access. Of course my neighbors don’t like it on the driveway cause I block the road for a while trying to back the trailer up LOL
Do you want to meet up next Saturday at the battlefield Gunslinger? I need to give Chivas a good ride and want to try out my new S-hack on the trails.

That's one reason I keep a blanket on mine...keeps the dirt (mostly) off the horses

Painted horse, you make winter riding look fun...and I hate cold weather!!

Glad you got the trailer out Anita Ann. I love to keep mine on the driveway. Brenderups are so easy to maneuver.
