I use a gps, or an APP called Geo Tracker. Since I'm in the USA, I track my distance in miles, then convert the distance to kilometers for the benefit of all the members who live in countries that use the metric system. There are a bunch of APPs you can install in your cell phone to help you track your ride.
Hmmmm. I don't have a smartphone. Just a good old dumbphone with push buttons only to use for calling and texting. So that option wouldn't work :( Maybe I will just have to remember every little place I went on my ride and measure it on Google Earth.... so painstaking though!

That is a pretty harness and cart!! Is that harness from Two Horse Tack? I saw a harness very much like that on there. It had blue pad, red, green, and black.

A couple of days I went out to try to take pictures of some wild otter-like animals in a pond somewhere. About 45 minute ride but I didn't find the otters. But I got some nice pictures....
It isn't often that I take my camera with me on rides but I did a couple of days ago and today... I will post pics from todays ride later in a post of my own. Also, the other day it was raining/ had just rained when I went so that is why the interesting clouds.

@Horse & Dog Mom, thank you!! It had just rained and was about to rain again so.. yeah you are right.
@whisperbaby22, it is an Uruguayan saddle. Much lighter than a western saddle and my old western saddles don't fit right: see this thread for more info, and and so I ride him with that more often. When I carry the camera I ride with a saddle as I don't want to slip around and risk falling with the camera. I usually ride bareback though. And thanks for the comment on Castillo. He is my very favorite silly handsome black horse in the world!!

Today ( late afternoon/evening) I went on another photo excursion to the Nutria pond. Well, and I finally succeded in getting some pictures of them!! And some other animals.

Going to the pond I found a 3/4 grown armadillo. I would have caught it and petted it but I was too busy taking pics lol

Arriving at the pond I found 4 or 5 storks or herons- some sort of big bird.

@phantomhorse13, you have a very pretty brown and white border collie!! They are such pretty dogs!! I had one for a few months before she died of Hepatitis around 2018 or 17 I don't remember.

@CaliforniaDreaming, eh er a bright turquoise hackamore??? And mecate?? Well it is definitely different lol! Not to say that I don't like it, it is just a very different color than the traditional colors. But it suits Mitch quite well!
Lol about the " seafood" diet. That's what Luna does lol! Boy I sure wish that I had that Equilab thing! It looks so neat! Does it also show how far you went?

@younghorsetrainer : so sad to hear you lost that lovely dog. I had wanted a BC my whole life, so Kestrel is a dream come true for me.
Thank you for your kind wishes. I didn't know how to train a cattle dog then ( and still don't ) and she had puppies shortly after I got her and then she got some infection from it, and the sickness came back after her puppies were sold and then after taking her to the vet, she stayed a couple of days and then passed away. She was my first dog so it wasn't very easy on my emotions.

I love border collies and Australian Shepards and Cattledogs they are so pretty and hardworking dogs!
