    High-five, Riosdad!!! If we had weather like that I would SO make Cricket go out in it.

    It was 85 today in sunny Southern California. And after OUR trail ride, Cricket got a nice bath and then grazed in the sun. Hahahaha California is SO uneventful.

    I wouldn't call Forest Fires and Mud slids uneventful. And then you throw in the occassional earth quake??? NO it certainly is not uneventful.

    I too love riding in the rain, but you can keep the thunderstorms! A friend of mine lost two horses at one time... They were grazing under a large tree that was struck by lightning!
    Wind...well I grew up in the California desert, and I hate the wind! So does Dakota! Funny...out of all the places we could have bought here in Arkansas, we moved onto a ridge that is WINDY!

    In another hour I am going to take off, grab my horse and run roads for the next couple of hours. I will deal with heavy trucks, school busses and lots of cars. I love running roads for the good footing and the distance, uninterrupted distance.
    What is a higher risk for me?? The thunderstorms or getting hit by a car or truck?? I take the chance and don't worry about it.

    I love riding in a nice warm rain, well as long as I have my assie coat which doms to the saddle so it doesn't blow with the wind. I don't fear the lightning

    It was cold and windy enough today I came home from our ride with an ear-ache. I was totally under-dressed

    Sam and I went on a roughly 25k ride through the city on the weekend. No weather comparable to yours (Summer has only just ended!) but we were running roads for the most of it, and also on footpaths. We went and saw her mothers new house, and then rode to my house for lunch (I have a conveniently placed park next door!). It was a great ride - Riding through the city really shows how quiet or not your horses are!

    I move into the cities in June through early September to escape the bugs and the hard roads. I trialer to a large maul, unload in a corner and run the wide green belts along the major throughways, the parks, the univerisity. We have a number of pizza stands and I grab a slice and a coke at one of them. I have also pulled into a car parking space, ground hitched the horse and gone into the store for food. Another place provides a hitching rail for the amish and I will tie there and go have a HUNGER mans Breakfast. Riding for food it good

    I've rode in the rain before, but it was, as Forest Gump would say, "Big FAT rain". Haha Not that kind of rain that feels like needles and pins hitting you, I don't think I could ride in that, unless I had an AMAZING rain coat...or 2. I give a thumbs up to you, Riosdad!!

    Just wanted to post a picture of the old man and myself, well 2 old men just getting back from about a 3 hour lope on the snowmobile trails. This old man is 23 and can lope for about as long as you can ride him. He is clipped for cool running. I have about 30,000 logged miles on him.
    A fantastic animal that is just about retired and a new boy is taking his place
