A ride through Hell

Being stubborn and being saturday I have to ride. It was in the mid 30's but high high winds and sleet rain at time. I saddled up, put on 2 rain coats and headed out. I had a heavy head wind, a small hurricane force wind but I thought that was good. That meant on the return ride I would have it to my back. I headed to the bush and every thing was mud, mud at times 6 inches deep , what snow there is left has turned to ice. I pulled my shoes Tuesday because of the mud so when he wasn't in the mud he was on slippery ice. Bushes blowing, dead leaves blowing, trees bent under the wind and turkeys?? Everywhere there were wild turkeys hiding out in the bush. While my guy is not spooky at all the combination of wind and turkeys kept him alert.. I could hear nothing but the roar of the wind.
I wandered in that for 2 hours and hated it. It is the worst ride I have had all winter. Did I mention the sheet rain coming in paralled to the ground

All and all a ride from Hell.
I will not ride tomorrow if the weather doesn't change.
I will go nuts.

At least you rode! We have had an unusual and wet winter (even SNOW!) and I broke my right hand Sept. 26, and was in a cast for 6 weeks, then on Jan. 16, I was getting hay down for the horses and a pallet board broke and I fell and broke my left wrist and joint. I was in a hard cast for 7 weeks and have been in a brace for a week, with two more weeks to go (then I don't know what the doc will say). We've had some pretty days and I can't wait to get back in the saddle! I admire your sense of adventure!

But honestly, Riosdad....how was your ride?

And Luv...wow! Talk about a bad break for you! (sorry...I had to go there. Won't happen again.) Hopefully your doc will clear you up for riding soon.

And here I've got nice weather, but I get so busy doing stuff in the day that by the time I get available to ride, it's too dark. Tomorrow is the time change, though, so that will help. As long as I take it easy, my neurologist has capitulated to let me ride sometimes.

That's why I stayed home and watched Basketball today. It has rained and snowed most of the day.

I feel your pain....spring weather sucks. Today I spent 4 hours loading water that had flooded the barn into a wheelbarrow with a shovel and carting umpteen wheelbarrows full of mud water 100 meters to the manure pile. Not fun, let me tell you!

I almost thought you were talking about riding in Kansas If we didn't ride in the wind we would never ride. Our weather has turned to thunder, lightening and tornadoes. We definitely stay in during that.
