2010 off to a good start

A group from the barn hit the trails today. The three of us headed out in search of new trails for the new year. This winter has been so dry and even with the snow last week, there have been lots of perfect days to ride. Last weekend, I went out with the barn owner, Tammy. It seems that everyone is working on their water crossing skills and for good reason. We crossed quite a few extra large puddles and streams. We only had one little incident, Mike rammed a tree with his knee rounding a corner. He said it was feeling better by the time we reached the barn. I've done that quite a few times, once at the canter. Ouch! I haven't posted about Maddy in awhile and just wanted everyone to know we are putting on the miles and getting out there. Happy Trails!

That sounds great! I'm happy to hear someone's getting out to ride. We've had snow for the last couple of days and it's getting really old. It's good to see how happy everyone is and having fun with their horses.

Like GHM, I would love to have some kind of weather that would promote trail riding. Good for you guys.

Lucky you! The snow here is deep and it's cold too so no riding! I did think of it yesterday but Gilly was wet from the snow, I would have froze yesterday anyway! LOL It will be awhile before I get to ride again. You have fun, ride for us who can't!!! :-)
