Checking back in after about a month, still working on finding people to go out with early in the morning. I've taken my mare out a couple more times and she has been great. Found out that she will jump a creek, though.
Easier to find company for rides in the evening so hope to get out more now that we have longer daylight hours. Roadyy and Celeste I think I have you beat with a grand total of
About 12 miles
Sending healing wishes out to Dream and Biscuit and of course to you QOS!

I'm glad that there are more lower mileage people other than just me that keep up with their miles and post them!

We rode 3.3 miles today. The weather was perfect. 73 degrees. Beautiful!! Since there didn't seem to be that many flies, I didn't use the fly mask, and my horse was so much better. I just really think that it annoys her to the point it is not worth using. She was great with the exception of one tiny little thing. She stepped over some sticks and one flopped up and whacked her. She started into a panic. She bolted forward; but with nothing more than a gentle pull back, she stopped in two strides. I was very proud of her.

Up to 37.1 miles. Roadyy is shaking in his boots.

I may never catch you my sweet Celeste. I have too many needing some training and I just couldn't justify catching up with you over getting some training time in. Trust me I was thinking of very little else other than going straight out for a ride after church yesterday to put some serious miles in the saddle. Even had the route planned out to get me about 15 miles. Lmbo

Then I headed out to the barn to brush them all down and Jems seemed overly attentive to me. My thoughts suddenly switched over to knowing I need to work with her as much as possible to get her to a riding stage. I tried to tell myself I could do it later and right now I need to catch you on the trail. It didn't work.

You got beat out by a nag for my attention.....sorry.lol

Sounds like you had a good short ride. Those moments of gaining control in a spook moment sure does give a boost to the confidence doesn't it? Good for you!

My daughter came out today. She, DH, and I went for a 3 mile trail ride. The horses were perfect. The weather was perfect. Overall it was a great day.

40.1 miles.

Can we share miles? I'm willing to hand a few out. Ride in honor of another member. I think that should be a new rule.

I'll get the seat time soon enough and will be riding daily on a couple of horses so the miles should really rack up then. Just wish I could have enjoyed some of the spring color changes more than all of the bugs that come with the summer heat. Lol At least I'll be ready for some serious trail time come fall and all the awesome colors that will be filling the memory card in the camera.

Bloo you are such a sweetie!!! Just share loads of pictures and tell me all about your adventures!

I went out to the barn today and got in the pasture. My boys came up when they saw me turn in . I petted them both and then walked off. They followed. Petted them up. Walked off. They followed me to the gate and I got my purple halter for The Biscuit and slipped it on with no problem.

I walked him all the way up to the main barn. I haven't done that in nearly 2 years since my knee went south. I took my pretty purple and pink cane and led Biscuit up the uneven lumpy bumpy ranch road. He was a perfect gentleman. I took him into the main barn to chit chat with the barn manager and she cleaned his bobo and put Desitin on it. He wasn't happy about it but he had to suck it up. I later took him back down.

Most of the time I was balanced - a few times I had to reach out and steady myself by touching Biscuit. He and I are going to be taking walks on a regular basis so I can get my legs stronger. Sitting in two different bar stools this weekend doing a wedding cake did my back in. I told hubby it wasn't coming off of Biscuit that did my back in - it was cake decorating. I had a little cake to do this morning and wow....I was whipped when I was through. I had to make myself go to the barn and I was so glad I did. I asked hubby if he wanted to make plans for the 4th of July because I am hoping to be released to at least walk on Biscuit. What a kill joy..."I don't think you will be able to ride then" Oh thank you honey for those words of encouragement and hope!!
