Photo taken before it snowed another 6 to 8 inches last night! We keep getting lots of snow here in Northern Nevada. Fortunately the horses are deserving of a break after Death Valley so don't need any conditioning, just an occasional joy ride (for fun!). ;) I did get Chief out twice this weekend, and he is bouncing off the walls and full of energy. It is snowing now, and the wind is blowing. I get to head down to Southern California this coming week… Continue

I have spent the last week ill with the flu and a cold. It is amazing to me how much we loose in training in just a few days let alone a week. So, rain or shine Valentina and I are back on track in the morning. I don't think we are going to make the February 16th Shine and Shine. However, we will be ready for the next one.
I am looking forward to AERC Convention and meeting so many people that I have had the opportunity to meet on Ride Camp and Endurance Riders Forum. It's all so…Continue

Ok, so she was coming out here to ride and we actually have, but the weather today was nasty and we opted to go visit the mummies at the Egyptian Museum and then to go to Khan el Khalili to enjoy the million odd little shops there, including this one that offered belly dancing costumes among other things.
We have been riding in the desert and countryside, however, and so far she hasn't been bucked or broken…Continue

Well January is almost over--2 more months of winter to go. According to the neighbors, we have had more snow & it's been staying longer than they've had around here for some years. Maybe we brought it from MI? :o)
While I was riding Noodle today I kept thinking about how lucky I am. I'm still clear of breast cancer 1 1/2 years later. (I have hair again--curly even.) I've got some great mules, spectacular trails, wonderful friends & the best husband. What more could a girl…Continue

And suddenly, there he was, GaZi-man, dipping his hay in his water bucket.
"Hey," I said with exasperation. "Why do you do that"?
"Hay," he said. "I like it wet and soggy and dripping and messy. And it turns the water green. I like…Continue

Looks like for the first time in a long time I'm going to be conditioning two horses for myself. You can just about turn back to 2000 or so to find when I've been able to focus on my own horses not *our* (mine and Josie's) horses. Back then Kaboot was in his prime and I could go to lots of rides. Then the mother daughter thing started..then as Kaboot's career wound down the "looking for another keeper" thing started and it's amazing how the years can get away from you while you're just…Continue
Several years ago we bought some land adjoining the Jefferson Notional Forest near Fries, Virginia. It connects to litteraly hundreds of miles of trails. I spend as much time up there as I can (which wasn't too much last year with the foal arriving!). You can really get a lot of conditioning done since which ever way you go there is a mountain to climb.
The other weekend I did about a 30 mile loop which included part of the New River Trail. It was great because it had all kinds of…Continue

Yes, I'm a barefooter! My horses have been barefoot since 2001 and I trim them all myself as well as some for friends. At the time I found barefoot all my horses had some kind of lameness due to bad shoeing except Rose who would kick any farrier that tried to nail a shoe on. We just don't have any good farriers in my immediate area so I had to take matters into my own hands! At this time they are all sound and doing trails without steel. I am not totally against shoes I just don't find them…Continue

Nellie & I checked out some new territory today. (Noodles' # was up to ride today but she & DW were headed down the road this morning so Nellie got the short stick.)
There is some state land across from one of my friends' places, so we headed there. WOW. Big & beautiful ride! We could spend days over there without ever crossing our own path--except to & from. We barely got a taste of it.
Definately will be going back there. An awesome place for conditioning. We…Continue

What a GREAT ride today! We may not have gotten in a full 10 miles as I had hoped. I think we did come close to it. Leslie, Shonna, Danielle, and myself had a very pleasant time riding in Cronin Ranch. There were lots of other riders out today taking advantage of the break in rain. The trails were good. There were a couple of places that were deeper than I would have liked but we managed and Valentina didn't freak out.
Leslie and Shonna are going to join AERC and register for an…Continue
