You have the most interesting rides dbhrsmn!

It is a natural spring in a shallow cave. The troughs are made of cement and have been there for a long time.
This sign was about a half mile above the trail head. It tells how old some of the drawings are.

This is what is left of some of the granaries.

Yes we trailered our horses. There is a turnaround and room to park along the road at the trail head.

Dbhrsmn I love the pictures. And your hores. I do love American history. Thanks for putting up the pix here.

QOS, I didn't know you were gaited! What type bit do you use (haha). I'm so glad you're feeling better and seeing progress already. Super Woman!

Thanks again, All, for the tips on the GPS. I will be doing some driving this summer, as well as riding. Is it "legal" to put down miles from both? Keep them separate? Driving miles don't count? Let me know. I'm soooo glad I found this post.

I think that we are making our own rules. If I were keeping a log, I would keep them separate, but add the total miles up and post those. Do you have a spreadsheet to use? I have one on my home computer that would work good. If you PM me your email address I'll be glad to send it to you. Or if you want a really spiffy one, call on our expert, QOS.

Nine, I am all of that and a bag of chips. You should see this pale yellow "saddle" I have strapped on. Woot! And my starting gate is aluminum with wheels. Yep I am a gaited race horse right now. No bit...just saddle and starting gate.

I am tired today. It is tiring sitting around all the time. I do get up and walk frequently but can't do too much. I will go out in the cake kitchen after awhile and make a peony that is going on this weekend's cake and maybe cut the cake boards. Make myself useful!!

The weather has been gorgeous here in the panhandle of Florida! Went to a ride on 4/6 and got 10th place in the 50 miler and that was with my stirrup breaking 4 miles into the last loop. I rigged it up just enough my tip toes could still reach it and we kept on going. And this past weekend we went to a ride in Dade City, FL. And we tied for 2nd in the 50 miler!! The weather was gorgeous! We had a blast. Here are some pics of our ponies.

Haha! I don't know about 'star", but we had lots of fun! But thank you! I was so very proud of my girl. She has heart for sure. The first picture of the dark grey is a horse I bought while we were in Dade City. He was at a rescue because and I quote what everyone told me " He was a problem child. And he is crazy." I was told he is not for the faint of heart. Well of course I had to go look at him and since he was 30 minutes away from where our ride was, why not? He needs some TLC. Worming, weight, and his feet done. But crazy? I don't think so. I just did not get the crazy vibe from him. The people that had him was going to drug him to do his feet. So here I am thinking he is going to be horrible and lastnight I went out to do some basic trimming and he was a little bad, but not bad enough for drugs. I was also told he bolts when you get on him. So I will keep yall updated on how he does when I ride him for the first time this weekend!

Congrats on the 50 milers and the horses look great. I am just getting my body(bumm and knees) used to completing 3 miles without feeling like I've been in a fight let alone going 50..lol

I do look forward to getting to the stage of longer trail rides like that. I miss those weekend trips of leaving my house at 4 pm Friday on horseback and coming home around dark30 Sunday evening. Just enough time to brush her down and get her settled into the pasture before cleaning myself up for bed so I could do a week's work while day dreaming about the trip. That was all several moons ago on a Leopard App/Arabian too. She loved the long trips away from home.

Thank you! When I did my first 50 miler, I thought it would never end!!! I got motion sickness and my knees hurt! It sucked. LOL. But I was addicted after that and now 50 miles feel like nothing. I like the 1 day 100 milers now. :) What part of Florida are you from?
