Time. Truth. Heart.

Friday, May 1, 2015 Rainshowers bring spring flowers. Great. Also mud, and lightning. I don’t have any particular reason yet to go out in down pouring thunderstorms. I may be a little crazy, but I haven’t gotten to that point yet. So no ride today. We’ve postponed our ride to Saturday because it appears toContinue reading “Time. Truth. Heart.”

She’s Got a Ticket to Ride

Wednesday, April 29, 2015 Riding in my first LD event was a big step for team green to 100. With more reflection I am glad we participated in the ride instead of only volunteering because I learned a lot about what my horses need in their conditioning and home riding to be prepared for futureContinue reading “She’s Got a Ticket to Ride”

The No Frills

Saturday, April 25, 2015: Race Day 4:45am: I am not freezing. In fact I’m snugly warm in my cocoon. The first time I woke up was 1:20am. I think there was a loose horse stampeding around outside. I have always heard you don’t get much sleep before your ride. That seems like it would make itContinue reading “The No Frills”

Always Be Prepared!

Saturday, April 11, 2015 Today Faygo and I went for a quick ride. We were excited to try out her new Zilco snap on bridle. It’s a beautiful bright blue and looks great on her! The headstall and bit connect with a snap to her rope halter (or a biothane halter) and make it easyContinue reading “Always Be Prepared!”

The New Trail and the Canter

Monday, April 6, 2015 After our big ride, I gave Faygo (and myself) a lazy day to relax. Monday Judy came back to ride so I could get Khaleesi back on the trail. We took a ride Khaleesi had never been ponied on to see how she’d handle new scenery. The ride began by crossingContinue reading “The New Trail and the Canter”

Gaiting Speed Graphics

Friday March 27 & Sunday, March 29, 2015 This weekend brought particularly cold weather back, snow and wind. I had planned a big ride with Faygo on Friday where my friend Nancy would ride half the distance with me on her fiery little paso. The morning ended up in a very cold rain, so weContinue reading “Gaiting Speed Graphics”

Miles… Inversion… and Misc…

Update: Sunday March 22 – Tuesday March 24, 2015 As for Faygo, we rode one of my favorite trails on Sunday and did just under 12 miles and with a moving average of 4.6 we’re still improving. I don’t pay as much attention right now to the overall average because I’m not always able toContinue reading “Miles… Inversion… and Misc…”

Cloud Nine Ride

February 8, 2015 In thinking of a title for this post I could only come up with something to attempt to describe how pleased, happy and elated I am after today! This is the best day of 2015 (so far!). I felt Khaleesi was ready for a trail ride, but not alone, and I had come up shortContinue reading “Cloud Nine Ride”
