About Me:
I started riding about 7 years ago, and got my first arabian to do rides with about a year later. Love that horse, but a year after I got her, I found out she had physical constraints that don't allow her to do endurance. I've done a few rides without her on horses borrowed from some generous friends, but it's not the same. Now I finally have horse #2, another arabian mare, but only 3.5 yrs old. So we are starting our journey together learning to do this silly sport. Egads!

The Gauntlet

To the untrained eye, it was a nondescript  farm road.  Straight half mile of gravel, bordered by woods and farm fields, a preamble to the woods and trails that lay beyond.


On a normal day, it was a corridor of quiet, a place where the rider warmed up her horse before tackling the trails.  A transition from leaving day to day worries back at the barn to…


Ozark Trail Ride (rambling) Recap - the 5 yr old finishes her first ride! Part I

Posted on October 1, 2010 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

We finally did it - after a several year hiatus, and buying my (much too young for me) next endurance prospect, DB Hula Mayya, and waiting for her to mature and finish her training, we bit the bullet and entered and FINISHED our first endurance (well, just Limited Distance) ride. Eep! How did this happen?

Of course I didn't do…


Diary of a Chicken

The outdoor arena. It looked safe enough. The sand was soft and deep. What could go wrong?

But then, I was riding the 4 YEAR OLD. The very tall (15 hh for pete's sake!), very bendy, very agile, 4 YEAR OLD. The one that tossed me last fall and sent me to the ER. She's very mellow, very sweet, and actually very slow right now (a bit porky from the winter...), but that's not what's in my head. In my head, is the fresh memory of being fine one second, and the next hitting very…


Let Me Tell You About My Best Friend

Let me tell you about my best friend.....

Gorgeous, refined, graceful and elegant don't even come close to describing her amazing beauty (so I humbly believe :))

Although some days, only a best friend can admire the beauty…


A Founder Saga Part II - Success!

Why is this the most beautiful picture EVER?!

Because this horse is TROTTING! If you read my last post, I talked about the long road my horse, Zoey, and I have been on since she rotated her coffin bones last summer. She's made slow progress, but slight progress. We tried a list of things - supplements, removing her from grass, changing farriers, bute, different boots, etc. All helped in small ways, until the last big piece in this complex… Continue

Hi Karry - so good to hear from you. SO Sorry to hear about your mare! How scary! I hope no more worries tho with her? where did you take her? midrivers? they do great work there...

Hey! It feels like we won't ever ride again doesn't it? My mare spent 2 days in hospital with colic. It's amazing how much weight they can lose in a few days. I was just starting to see improvement too. I hope your abscess heals quickly. I saw a little product in a magazine the other day called a hoof sock. Just a neoprene sock that stays put, and keeps your meds in place, or keeps it clean once the abscess opens up. Sure beats duct tape if you as me!
