Unfortunatly the trail riding is pretty much done here until spring as we have officially entered the mud season. Now my only hope is a good hard freeze to solidify that mud.
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.
