Lakeview Ranch Ride (2007)

For photos: http://sinwaan.blogspot.com/2007/09/ride-day.html

Well last night I could not sleep at all. At first I attributed it to nerves and excitement but it soon became clear to me that I was cold, very cold. We do not have sleeping bags, the air mattress was deflating and my blankets, even the extra ones we had brought were just not doing the job. Levi had been asleep and bundled up when I went to bed but he woke up… Continue

Home On The Range - Ride Day (2008)

For photos: http://sinwaan.blogspot.com/2008/03/home-on-range-ride-day.html

The morning of the ride I woke up shortly before the alarm went off at 7 am. I did not sleep very well, having Levi sleep on my chest and listening for the sounds of loose horses. All the building excitement of the years first ride probably had a little something to do with that also. I worried about staying on the trail and finding… Continue

Fandango - Ride Day, here at last!

For photos; http://sinwaan.blogspot.com/2008/05/fandango-ride-day-here-at-last.html

The thing I noticed about this part of Idaho is the sun seems to set late and come up just as late. Our ride time was at 8 am so Lara and I decided to get up at 5 am so we would have plenty of time to get ourselves and the horses ready without feeling rushed like last time we tried to ride together (Lakeview Ranch… Continue

Renegade Rendezvous - Ride Day

For photos; http://sinwaan.blogspot.com/2008/06/renegade-rendezvous-ride-day.html

Morning arrives and I am awake before the alarm. I think the time is a little before 5 AM. I had set the alarm for about 5:30 thinking that would give me an hour and a half to eat and get Sinwaan ready. I went out first thing and fed Sinwaan his breakfast at the trailer. Man, it was COLD! I was shivering. I went back in… Continue

Milwaukee Road Rail Trail - To Finish Is To Win

For photos, visit the blog at http://www.sinwaan.blogspot.com/

After trying very hard to sleep all night long and not succeeding, I noticed it getting bright outside. I got up and checked the time on the phone. 5:33 AM. How could that be? The alarm never went off on either of our phones. I peeked outside and Sinwaan was eating, it looked like Ruth had gotten up and thrown him some hay. I woke Matt up and started some water on the stove… Continue

She's a little Spooky

"She's a little spooky". Most people, upon hearing this phrase, would probably conjure an image of a willowy girl in black clothes wearing black makeup, who claims to see dead people. For those of us who are equine inclined, however, a very different image, and a whole different set of emotions, come to mind.

Scenario number one: "The Sleeper"

You are on hour number two on a very pleasant trail ride. You are astride your Trusty steed that is about a hundred years old and knows the… Continue

Before the Storm

Dani's lab, Zak got kicked by one of the horses 3 weeks ago and popped a huge seroma (fluid filled tumor) that was removed yesterday. I have been stuck in the house, keeping and eye on her and making sure she does not pull out the 2 drains that are in her side. This is somewhat OK as it has been raining all day and is COLD. Yes, it is snowing in our mountains...all this and we are literally days away from the first of May!!!! And they are saying that this storm is staying for all of tomorrow… Continue

An Easter Gift


Yesterday was Easter Sunday, a day that is supposed to be a BIG Christian holiday. At my house it was a non starter or so I thought.

I went for a ride on Jazzi in the mid afternoon. Jazzi had been resting for almost 3 weeks since her shoes had been pulled. I had just received her sparkling new copper Renegades boots that match her copper bay coat the day before. I still needed to adjust the cables on the boots so they would fit correctly – stay on and not cause any damage to… Continue
