I worked with Ivan this evening. He was really in the mood to work! He still won't jump those barrels, but he climbed over them first time I asked him to cross them, so he knows I want him on the other side, at…

Hee Haw, I'm Noodle & this is my story:
It started at the Shamrock ride a couple of weeks ago. Mom brought my sister Nellie & I to see who she wanted to take to the Big Horn. I didn't know then what I was getting myself into. Nellie always told me, "Mom is crazy", but I didn't believe her.... I know better now.
Anyhow, At Shamrock I got to ride the first day. What a trail! The first loop had so many rocks, that Mom was…Continue
I'm new here and found this website while looking for info about endurance riding. At this moment I am saving up for a horse and slowly searching for a good match for me. I'm still trying to figure out my exact goals, but for now I think that I would enjoy the training for an endurance ride and attempting a short endurance ride. My trainer suggested a 25 mile ride would be a good goal for me. I am going back to her with my mother…Continue

Look at me with my very own blog! How kitchy! What exactly do you do with a blog? I guess it's kind of like a diary to the world?
I grew up in a suburb of Denver, CO as a horse crazy kid. I would peddle my bicycle to the stables each day to muck stalls and clean tack in exchange for lessons. I first learned how to ride saddleseat on American Saddlebred horses. When the stable shut down I began taking lessons at a local hunter/jumper barn…Continue
Somehow, I've quite fallen quite behind on these entries...probably because I'm having more fun having fun than writing about having fun.
Yes, that sentence made sense.
When last we saw our green standardbred mare, she was NOT attending the Milwaukee Rail Trail Ride in Ellensburg WA. The ride is a good one, but not a good choice for a green horse who uses wide…Continue

Its been about three weeks since we've started back to conditioning in earnest. If there were only 48 hours in a day it would be more convenient. Remodeling a house, building a chicken house, building a shop, putting up fences, starting 5 new horses and, oh yes, full time jobs makes for long days. Yes, endurance riders endure.
Most of our rides have been the LSD easing the horses and ourselves back into it type. Down dirt roads, through pastures and woods, around the cemetery, across…Continue

"Nothing to it, but to Do It"
A pearl of wisdom one of our guests left with me as she and her friend departed on their continuing hiking adventures in Montana. Just what I needed to hear. Since moving to Montana, G-d has truly blessed
us in our acquisition of 5 count 'em five equines. This from a city girl who's been on a horse all of once in summer camp as a kid. Our herd…

Picture it.. Dan and I are on the last two miles of our ride today part of which encompasses 3 successive hills. At the bottom of the final hill, I'd decided to stop the 'little man' before we proceeded to
ascend at a walk. More to train him that he doesn't…
