@egrogan - Glad to hear you were able to squeeze one last ride in! We've been getting a ton of rain too, ugh!

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

So, @SwissMiss , what is your evaluation of the saddle? It looks lovely. I really like it. What does Raya think?

I love it and Raya seems to agree with me... But we only rode about 1 hr each time. The real test will be next weekend

Oh and @knightrider , if you would like to test ride it - come join us!

It may be a bit far, though - but not everyone dislikes driving long distance as I do
phantomhorse13, Change and LoriF like this.

Well, my September mileage was a whopping ZERO. I didn't get a single ride in.

This past weekend, however, is another story. Tango, Sinna (my pup) and I hauled up to Rock Bridge Canyon where we met up with @SwissMiss , @anita Ann, @greentree and two others for a HF Meet, Greet and Ride weekend. It was so much fun and felt like meeting up with old friends.

@greentree , her friend H and I went out for a short 1 hour ride on Friday, then on Saturday all 6 of us went on a much longer (6 hours!) ride on some pretty challenging trails. It was pretty warm, and there were a few places where Tango was absolutely soaked and his saddle started slipping back. I think I'm going to have to go back to center rigging or add holes to tighten his breast collar, both... or find another saddle that stays put!

I'm bad about taking pictures on the trail, but I did get one good one from between the ears. Here's a pretty little grotto we saw at the end of a long downhill track:

Tango:
10/5 3.26 miles
10/6 13.63 miles

Saturday's ride was Tango's longest, both in distance and time under saddle. We rode for 6 hours! He was so good!

Courage is taking just one more step...

@Change - It's so cool to hear that HFers are getting together in the real world!

@Zexious - wait 'til you see the t-shirts! @anita Ann designed them and they're great! I think @greentree and/or AnitaAnn will post pictures. I'm bad about forgetting to take pictures!

First opportunity to ride in October. About 5 miles into the ride, the radar showed rain a few miles west and coming my way. So I cut the ride short, 8 miles. Where did the rain go? Wooded trails are still full of spider webs.
