@knightrider - Wow, I bet that was quite the experience! And certainly an exercise in bomb proofing for your two horses. Glad to hear they ultimately did ok--I love the bells around their neck! (And also you guys' use of glow sticks!)

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

I rode Jake most of the way down the driveway yesterday. DH rode Comet and our farrier who was over hanging out with DH rode Stitch. I've never seen Jake walk so slow, he was pouting because there was nothing to eat. They had to stop and wait for me about 10 times.

Jake did really well for not being out recently, he hates being passed though (but doesn't see that as an opportunity to move faster than snail pace). At least that's something we can work on in winter. Miss our trails already.

Love all the parade pictures!

It's a winter wonderland here, but unfortunately the snow has an ice-crust on it and the roads are pretty slick. It's hard to safely navigate to real trails, and getting through the icy-crusted pasture to our short woods trails seems uncomfortable for my horse. So we had a little stroll up and down the road yesterday. It may be all we're able to do the rest of the winter, depending on what the weather does. Time will tell I guess.

The snow might not be great for riding, but it is perfect for snowshoeing. Friday night, my lovely husband and I snowshoed out to the middle of one of our pastures, where there is a perfect little evergreen growing all alone, and decorated it with a strand of solar lights. They seem to be working well so far!

Total 2018 miles: 143.8

This was another lady who rode with us in the parade. She had her horse all decked out in lights.

Today, I rode Hombre as chaperone for Nicole's show horse's first trail ride. Repique did well over all, though was not a fan of moving water!

2018 mileage
12/10 hombre 4.93 miles 320 ft climb 2.9 mph 26F 1853.15 total miles

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

@phantomhorse13 - Great news about his first trail ride! Love of water will come with time--hopefully! ;)

Due to a persistent eye infection, Amal has not been out on the trails since Oct. 22nd. That's 50 days. Today I saddled him up and we rode for 6.75 miles solo in the National Forest. No lunging. No riding him in an arena or around the barn. No company. Pull him away from his buddies, saddled him up and go. A saddle maker I met 3 months back told me when he found out I rode Arabians, "I feels sorry for you. I had one once." I replied, "With all due respect, I have been riding Arabians for over 30 years and have own a few. I feel sorry for you." Of course, that was a biased opinion. lol. The photo is from today's ride.

@charrorider . What a good boy! I hope you have resolved your eye issues. Looks like you had a lovely ride and I bet Amal was happy to get out and switch things up a bit.

@charrorider I hope his eye is better! When people make those remarks about Arabians to us, we usually respond with..,”The thing with Arabians is that you have to be smarter than the horse!!”

I don't break horses, I FIX them!
