Four members of the Pirate Nation took the dinghy SS Jeep over the mountains this weekend to help out at the Milwaukee Railroad Trail ride in Ellensburg, WA. Ride manager (and fellow-Pirate) Gail Williams put together another good early-season ride--a challenging task in the Pacific Northwest, and a terrific opportunity for me to have fun.
As a pulser-and-generally-helpful-person for the day,…Continue

Horse trainer and good friend Joanie sent me her daily portal of prayer on Joy. She included her intrpretation that she'd sent her daughter who was having affairs of the heart. .. .Couldnt have said it

Wish I had known about the VVMarch Maddness sooner- as I has already accumlated 100+ slow & easy miles this year, and might have been motivated to add more. I'm hoping there might be more VVRides, because of gas prices going up &…Continue

The goal was to break the egg.
That was the point of that game: race to the middle of the arena, break the egg, and race back "home."
Who knew that eggs could be so elusive? We stomped, and scraped, and backed, scooted forward, and swung sideways, with riders trying like crazy to break that dang shell, and horses carefully placing feet…Continue
