Losing a great horse

Posted on July 30, 2010 at 1:21pm 8 Comments

Friends, I just can't face talking anymore on the phone right now and so I am sharing with you what happened to my beloved 11 year old gelding Jack. This is the note I sent to his breeder in Utah and it will save me from breaking down while I try to tell you about it on the phone or in person. I know, as you do, that time heals and someday I'll only remember the great memories this fine animal gave to me, Keith and many of our friends. Right now, I am… Continue

BH 100 mile ride, 09

Posted on July 15, 2009 at 2:52pm 1 Comment

On Wednesday, we marked the five-six miles of canyon on the trail. This is my favorite section of the trail and I try to mark it for ride management every year. While the ride expected to have fewer folks than last year when Tevis had to cancel, it is horrible that only six people entered the 100 miler (12 in the 50 miler and three in the 25). Anyhow, the trail was gorgeous. The supper Friday night was wonderful: pulled pork with all the fixings, plus HOME MADE PIES! Sunday morning we had… Continue

Global Warming, Wyoming Style :)

Posted on June 7, 2009 at 8:33pm 2 Comments

It snowed about 4 inches of wet, heavy snow last night and this morning. Last Saturday it was in the 80s and I thought I was having a heat stroke! Luckily, it finally warmed up to the low 40s this late this afternoon and the snow is, mostly, melted. I've been thinking of the Ft. Howe endurance riders all day cause they were out riding in this. However, from the photos Merri has up on ridecamp, it looks like they didn't get as much snow as we did. Still, you know they are cold and wet. Cindy

My Longstreet's Charge 50 mile ride

Posted on May 29, 2009 at 8:35am 2 Comments

For those of you who won’t read this whole story, just let me say that if you have a chance to ride the Longstreet’s Charge 50 miler in the southeast region, you should do it. It’s a “real” endurance ride with challenging, beautiful, extremely well-marked trails, the best awards I’ve seen in years, friendly vets and a warm, hardworking ride management staff.

A little background…Angie, Jody and I have been emailing and sharing our thoughts on ridecamp for years now. However, we’d… Continue

Thank you - I did that. I can see and view my card - I can just not enter data into it.

Thanks, it was definitely a bummer...I'm really hoping "Billy" turns out ok. I guess nothing makes you appreciate your completions like a pull at the finish.

Hi Cindy,
Most days have made it inot the 40's, some 50's & 1 or 2 30's. The wind has been slowed down here by the hills. I get blown away in the open spots,but I can also hide from it in many places. They're predicting a 2 day blizzard tomorrow & Tues, so we'll see how that goes.

Here's to hoping you have nice weather on Fri & Sat---supposed to be 40ish over here. Good luck to your kids in Jackson (if that's where you're headed).

Pretty darn cold here last night, too. I've been eyeballing the forecast for the next VV ride. looks like 40's up to Feb 5. (It only shows 10 days) Keeping fingers crossed. Hey, that Longstreet trip sounds like fun.

Hi, Cindy! Thanks for the nice comment. I'm so glad you like my stories -- they are such fun to write. Gotta take my camera more often to get photos along with the telling.

I guess you could say I am "retired" -- I left the corporate life 20 years ago to start a Mommy career... and never returned to the land of steel and glass. Foxhunting is such a rush -- but one needs a horse that will do the sport, and Itchy is good at it. We lucked out this winter with mild weather so we hunted non-stop through the season. Great way to keep myself and my ponies fit during the winter. Hunting coyote would be a riot -- they run straight, hard and fast, not in big circles like a fox.
