    LOL that BITES. We occasionally have big winds like that but not that often thank God. I am not a fan of windy weather. Comes from years of wearing contacts!!!

    We do get the rare hurricanes with 150-200 mph wind but thank God that is rare. Tomorrow the wind is supposed to be 6 mph...that works for me!

    You need to move closer to the coast!!! Hurricanes are rare but the weather is pretty darn nice except for the humidity at certain times!

    Gah! You were only like 30 minutes away from me! I wish I was there!! I have only ridden on Surfside beach and that was years ago. I have been dying to go again!! And your right, now is the perfect time for beach rides.

    Where is Tyrell Park?

    Where are you located? Tyrrell Park is right off of IH 10 behind Cracker Barrell. There are about 5 hours of trails back there - canals running through it, woods to ride in, places to canter...Woot! It is a fun place to ride - no hunting which is great. I saw a coyote out there a few weeks ago, there are hogs out there and hubby heard a bobcat and saw a deer.

    The Cowboy Church is acquiring the big stables out there so we will have a place to have all kinds of functions.

    My friend, Lee Ann and I board at the same place and I will be hauling out there today around 11:00 or so. We are planning on riding every Sunday out there weather permitting. I ride, my hubby goes, The Two Lee Anns, my cousin Kellie, our friend Sue, some friends from up around Kirbyville Robin, Sharon, Stacy and little Eli go with us sometimes. WE have seen other folks out there riding too. If you ever want to join us let me know!!!

    It is awesome. I just got back from a 3 hour ride out there. We had a great time. I went with my stable mate, Lee Anne and her little chunky Tennessee Walker, Rogue.

    We parked at the stables and went right into the woods and rode around to the canal. We went down the side of the canal which is gorgeous with beautiful reeds and grasses. We went over the big tall bridge and down the track road out there all the way to the bayou. Biscuit and I trotted and Lee Anne and Rogue were gaiting so we had a great time.

    I am going to ride out there by myself tomorrow and my cousin and I are planning rides for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. She knows the park like the back of her hand. Can't wait.

    I googled it and it's in Beaumont area. That's a bit far from me. Galveston is only about 30 mins away, but to get to Beaumont I would have to go all the way around the bay. :( I haz a sad.

    Keep it in mind for future rides. The Cowboy Church pastor is working up some great plans for the park. We hope to have trail rides and competitions soon. There will be stalls available for those who want to overnight.

    We had a good time in the park today. Can't wait for spring time - it is going to be gorgeous but it is certainly nice right now in the woods. Nice trails and falling leaves are so pretty

    That's so awesome. I wish I lived near the beach. But the summer time would be the only good time to do it and it would be PACKED. Just a question, why the heck are you wearing sweatshirts in 73 degree weather!? Lol. I would be in shorts and a tank top! But that's because I have New Hampshire blood. It's a whole ten degrees out right now. All those horses are just gorgeous though. Never seen a Friesian Morgan cross wicked cute.

    My cousin, Kellie, 2nd from the left had on a very light sweatshirt. The rest of us were in Tee Shirts! It had actually been in the 40's that morning when we left for the beach and had a good little breeze going.

    Kellie and I, along with our hubbies and another lady, just got back from a ride. It was 43 degrees with a light breeze. Yesterday it was 39 degrees, wet, raining and wind chill of 28 and blowing like crazy. LOL We have a wet humid climate and omg it chills to the bone. My friend is from Michigan and came down in April a few years ago when we had a rare late freeze. She lives on Lake Michigan and was so surprised at how COLD it was here. LOL thank God it doesn't last long! Come on down in the winter - we will ride on the beach!

    That little Morgan/Friesan is cute as he can be but he was tying up out there that day. Gaaa...that is never good.
