All the trails near me are basically quagmires. The barn where I board has a great trail network but I haven't hacked out in weeks due to the mud (over hoof deep). In fact, today was the first day I rode outdoors at all in two weeks, as the outdoor arena has been soaked wet all this time. This week we finally had very little rain and today the footing outside was great on most of the arena.

It felt good to ride outside for a change, for both Calypso and I.

I'm going out again on Saturday, but I'll probably ride in the outdoor arena again. I doubt the trails will dry enough to be worth doing.

ummm...can you PM me that site? I'd love to see it and check how far it is from where we are. I am planning next year's rides. Doing wedding cakes makes me plan way in advance so that I don't book a wedding. It is finding places that have good trails and can accommodate the horses in our area that is a challenge. Texas doesn't have much of that!

We will probably ride somewhere, Depending on who I can find to go.

From past years.



Lunch stop during the ride


The beauty of Utah is I've got desert riding when there is snow on the ground or alpine riding during the summer



My horses love rolling in the snow after a good work out.

that's awesome Painted! We'd ride with you there if we were closer! Looks a little too chilly for me, but I'll ride anytime, ANYWHERE!
