Dawn - so sorry you were sick. My riding buddy and a cake buddy had that at the same time. OMG they were both sick for ages - I didn't think they would ever get better.

Glad that Sultan is now a slick dude in his new finery but I think Dream's halter is going to give him a run for his money. So glad that George is better.

I just got back from the neurosurgeon in Houston. I will be having back surgery on Monday April 15. IF everything goes like clockwork and I do well I should be back in the saddle in 2 or 3 months. I am hoping for 2 but 3 won't be so bad. The bad part is I won't get to see Biscuit and Sarge for 2 weeks - but Honey Darling Precious said if I am real nice he will load them up and bring them to the house. I am going riding this weekend and the day before surgery...getting in as much riding as I can. I just did my horses hooves so I may have to have the farrier do their feet once

I will have to enjoy all of y'all riding so post those stories and pictures. I will need something to dream on

On Saturday my sister and I got together to ride. I had been sick all week with a pretty bad head cold so I wasn't 100% but I had been looking forward to this ride for weeks and I wasn't about let a little cold stop me. My sister is in college now and between school, her job helping retrain ottbs, and exercising her own 3 horses I don't get to see her as often as I used to. She had spring break this week however, so we were able to get together.

I asked if she would mind riding Wings, while I took Thunder. I just started riding Thunder again last week...he has been on pasture rest for a little over a month due to a pulled muscle. I wasn't sure how he would do on this ride, but he was raring to go. Both boys surprised me with how well they did, actually. We did a lot of trotting! Not as much as seasoned endurance horses, surely, but quite a bit for my two pasture puffs! I thought Thunder would tire pretty quickly but I was wrong. He was still jigging at the end of our 7.8 mile ride!

Unfortunately I didn't do so well. About halfway through the ride I started getting real dizzy...and for the last stretch I was pretty out of it. I'm not sure just how I made it home, lol. My sister helped me with the chores so I could get home and get to bed asap.




I was very pleased that both the boys drank from the creek!



I felt like a midget on Thunder (13.1h) next to my sister on Wings (16.2h)! Despite the size difference, Thunder impressed me by leading most of the way. I thought it was great that they can trot together fairly well. (Thunder has a fast little trot and while Wings has a slightly slower jog). Walking is another story, though. Thunder has to be one of the slowest "walkers" I have ridden, due mostly to his having short stubby legs, lol!



I think Thunder looks pretty snazzy in his new biothane bridle!



2013 Total Miles:
Thunder: 71.1 miles
Wings: 55.2 miles

Another 18 today in the desert, after a fairly terrible weekend. The weather was perfect! HR was 36 by time I got the saddle off. Go Cupcake!

67.4 for the year.

Went for another quick ride around the neighborhood alone on Trusty. He did good except for the encounter with the horse eating Guineas. There were 3 well off the right side of the road that got his attention, but didn't stop his forward motion. It was the 2 right next to the road on the left that stopped him in his tracks. There was also a car parked on the edge of the road to the right so he was very apprehensive about going between them. He got 2 steps backwards before I finally got him forced back into a forward motion while his eyes were on those 2 birds until we got past them.

We didn't push much more than a casual walk the whole time as he hasn't been ridden since last summer. I checked him over good when we got back and he didn't even break a sweat. I think I will continue to go further and further on each ride to keep stretching his exercise.

I hope you ride everyday until Monday!!!! Maybe riding Biscuit will cure you first

If he doesn't cure you, may the surgery be very successful without any complications! I will be praying for the best outcome for you.

I'm sure glad you're giving up on drunken sailors.....

I'm sure you're looking forward to being back to normal......

went in for 2nd opinion on surgery today. This doctor totally agreed with my doctor. So I will be having surgery on Monday a week on the 15th. I have found someone to ride Biscuit while I am off - my friend's daughter will ride him strictly at a walk in the arena!

I rode last week on Smokey, my Arabian cross again. He wanted to act up though, and nearly threw me. It's been so long since I have ridden regularly, I have lost all confidence. I really don't think he would really 'try' to throw me, but I didn't want to take the chance. MY second cousin is coming out to ride with me sometime this week, and he is going to ride Smokey and get some sense back in his head. My cousin has been riding for, 40 years or better, so I'm sure he can handle it, lol.

For anyone that wants to know, Rose, the mare I usually ride is pregnant! Turns out she was fairly far along when I bought her back in December. Vet said she should pop in June. :)

Well, Riverbelle you are getting 2 for the money!!! Hope the foal is just a little jewel!!!

You will get your confidence back soon. Keep at it. It took me a long time to get my confidence back and it still isn't bombproof!
