  • And they're off!
    on Apr 7, 2011
    Both horses are en route to Buck Meadows at this time. One coming from Utah, and the other coming from central Nevada. Its about a 4 hour drive for us, so we will be leaving a little later in the day. Its snowing again, shocker. But its getting old l...
  • Spring Break and such
    on Apr 6, 2011
    Spring Break could not have come at a more perfect time. Finally the school board looks at *my* ride calendar and plans school vacations around it! Last week nevada derby, then spring break, then then buck meadows. PERFECT! It allows me time to pack,...

    Finally got all my gear unpacked, washed and put away and now it is all being repacked for the Buck Meadows Boogie ride this weekend. I will be riding Sue Hedgecocks horse in the FEI 50 mile division! Im going to run to the barn now and check out how...
  • More Nevada Derby ranting
    on Apr 4, 2011
    Tough Ass ride for everyone...Lots of people had their asses handed to them at this ride. Something like a 50% completion rate for the 50's on Saturday. The first horse to cross the finish line, looked great and had a low (i would know cuz I did his...
  • Gave it a good run
    on Apr 2, 2011
    2 days dreamed, 1/2 day reality. Yup, i got pulled. (i can already hear the criticism coming at me!)He ate amazingly, drank lots, didn't behave (what else is new) moved out well. Oh, and he also kicked the crap out of our trailer on the way to the ri...
  • Umm wait, what is this weekend?!
    on Mar 28, 2011
    Yes, it caught me by surprise as well. The subtext running through my head with the million other things going on in life is remind me that Nevada Derby is April 2nd. April 2nd. April 2nd. We get to March 27 and I realize that that is NEXT weekend. C...
  • Accident Prone
    on Mar 14, 2011
    Dang it. What else will this horse do to make me not ride?! It looks superficial, i have it wrapped and slathered in neosporin to keep it supple so the skin doesn't get tight. When i rode him the other day I put a salve on it, and he reacted badly to...
  • This is Fun, Right?!
    on Mar 13, 2011
    Freezing frigid wind! I was expecting a funnel cloud to form any minute and be hit by a tornado. I set out from the barn later than i expected, and the minute that my but hit the saddle the sky turned grey and clouds rumbled in with fury. Okay, not q...
  • Equitation
    on Feb 27, 2011
    Diagonals, flying lead changes, figure eights and jumps!! The trails are inaccessible right now, there is about 4-6 inches of snow and deep mud on them right now so all i could do was work in the arena today. I spent 20 minutes lunging him with the s...
  • The trails are nice, right?
    on Feb 23, 2011
    My thinking: Oh its been sunny for a few days, relatively warm so the trails will be fine to get in a nice 30 mile ride.Reality: The snow was melting, and there was a solid river running through the trail. The mud was pastern deep and the snow was fe...
