I was able to sneak in an afternoon ride yesterday. It was sunny, 71F with a slight breeze.... just, perfect. And Chase was super well behaved, the best he’s been since winter.

We crossed the lake again, it was still the same level as it was before... but, this time I was prepared to pull my feet out of the way to keep my boots dry lol I tried to get a video, but had to put down my phone halfway because I needed both hands to steer.

New to this. A bunch of questions.

Where is Mt Wolf?
What trail app do you all use?
Anybody need a partner? I've been riding by myself and a bit tired of it.

I'm heading out to Assunpink this morning. First time since the quarantine getting off property.

As in New Jersey? I think I have ridden there once before. I am not sure if we have anybody close to that area on HF currently.

Hope you had a good ride and you come back to tell us about it.

Iím in PA, but I donít travel much... especially since I donít have my own trailer.

Mt wolf is in PA, I live in York. My trails are on a 300+ acre cattle farm, owned by the towns namesake. They own my boarding facility as well. I have a good 5-6 miles of trails if I stretch it... and donít have to leave home, so Iím grateful to be there.

The app I use is called ďhorse riderĒ in the App Store. Iíve found it useful, I like looking over my rides after.

Speaking of rides, was out today. Shorter ride, but beautiful and sunny and a ďmostlyĒ well-behaved pony.


He had a little tantrum by the cow gate, but eventually gave over and we didnít have any other issues.

Interrupted a frog orgy at the lake


There were SO Many frogs. We decided to stay out of the water today.

Spring was in the air here yesterday, and I went out on my first ride of the year with my riding buddy and her gelding. We had a few tense moments in the middle of the ride when my mare decided it was time to turn for home, but all's well that ends well. After a few minutes of handwalking her to get her to calm down some, a big hill climb got her refocused and the rest of the ride was nice. We went about 5 miles.



(Look behind the house and you'll see that the ski mountain still has snow on the trails- gotta love Vermont "spring"!)






Total 2020 miles: 33.9

I’m back 🙂. Kind off. Life got in the way and a few months flew by without much horsing around. Got out for a ride yesterday. It was a great day for an outing, +20 and sunny. Wasn’t planning on it, but it just happened lol. The plan was to get on just for a bit in the pasture, then went to the bigger field and ended up going a few kms. Took both boys out. They were full of beans and just wanted to go. Duke settled down into an easy walk halfway through, Montana kept raring to go but was controllable. There were turkeys everywhere. The closest one came out only a few feet away from us and took off. Ramped up the horses a bit, but they both calmed down within a few steps.
