    I took Hansel (call name for Skip) on our first trail ride together today. We went with two other friends. We had a blast. We only went about 5 miles but it was a great time! Hans was the perfect gentleman!



    Hans on the left and Ace on the right...


    Valerie working her horse Nora before we rode out...


    It was so warm and Sunny today! The boys waited so patiently while Val warmed up Nora.


    Lots of open fields...


    And lots of old barns...

    Celeste, my question is how long is a cubit?

    Just 2 more days of rain for the week.

    Thanks to google...... 450 X 75 X 45 feet. Hmmmm. Think all my critters would be comfortable in that?

    Definition of CUBIT :: any of various ancient units of length based on the length of the forearm from the elbow to the tip of the middle finger and usually equal to about 18 inches (46 centimeters)

    The Ark's dimensions were at least 135 meters long (300 cubits), 22.5 meters wide (50 cubits), and 13.5 meters high (30 cubits). That's 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high
    How big was Noah's Ark? What were the dimensions?

    So, we finally made it out to Warden Station today, and rode the white trail with a family we met there. So the good news is I now know where we missed the turn the other day!!

    The bad news is that Chivas did not like being at the back (one of their horses was a kicker) and had a fit for the first 2.5 miles! Then of course he spooked at everything under the sun!

    So, I couldn't take a single picture during the ride, most of it I had to put Chivas nose practically to his chest to keep him as slow as the others

    He was the psycho-prince!

    But here are a couple of pictures, one of Jenny and Dreamer with our new friends in the background, and one of Chivas in his new s-hack and stowaway bag, looking handsome

    If we ever get to ride together, it may be psycho-prince meets psycho-princess. Lol. On the bright side, he was willing to go.

    Oh, forgot to say we rode 4.05 miles @ 3.8 mph, ytd = 46.3

    Dreamer and Chivas were both still ready to go farther, but the other horses were to tired to go on another ride. They had camped out and rode yesterday too.

    So Jenny took Dreamer over to practice jumping some logs! We finished up with a huge ice cream cone in town. Yummy!

    Utah is so beautiful!!

    It would be a psycho ride for sure! Chivas never has a problem with go, he has a listening problem and refusal to look where he is going problem! Plus spooking often for no reason at all...

    He's not very fond of Whoa either! The s-hack didn't not give me very much control either, but it was a lot of fun! It would have been even more fun if I could have let him have his head & GO

    Glad you got out AnitaAnne and sorry you were riding PsychoPrince.

    I am curious though about the back of your Brenderup. It looks different than mine. Can you post of picture of it? I am always curious about the different styles of B'ups!

    Thanks Denise! PsychoPrince comes out around other horses...he was a challenge today for sure, I am just glad he is not a huge horse, cause he would be hard to control!

    Here is some more pictures, 1st one from today the other one from a previous ride. I don't have a lot of pictures of the back of the trailer, sorry.

    But can you show a picture of yours so I can see the difference?
