Team 14: Messick



I’m Brenda Messick. I live north of Lincoln, NE.  I rode the hilly trails in PA as a youth, and I love to trail ride. I’ve loved the few week long rides and 4-5 day clinics that I’ve gone to the last few years. I think it's just the time away to regroup and just be with your horse that makes that connection strong again.
I have had 3 kids who showed Western, English, Barrel, Reining and Working Cow, and now that they are done and through college, I’ve gone back to trail riding more. I teach riding lessons, train horses, and raise Quarter Horses. I’ve started the Centered Riding Program almost 3 years ago and am a Level 1 Instructor, working hard to try to get to level 2.    I’ve had a few Dressage lessons and would like to continue them in the spring on my Quarter Horses Shaggy and Duke, as well as the Centered Riding Clinics. I’ve been doing CTR’s (Competitive Trail Riding) for 4 years and hope to add some Endurance rides this year. I’m looking for an Arabian to compete with and hope to have him/her soon!!! 
I write about my riding, training, grandchildren, and life around here on my blog, Horses Are Our Lives, http://myblog-horsesareourlives.blogspot.com/. I have a Horses Are Our Lives chat group ,http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/horsesareourlives/  where I talk about riding and training tips, horse health, books and other current topics. Come join in the discussion!

Jan 5: 10 miles (8 on Shag, 1 hr 45 min, and 2 on Duke, 30 min) (yesterday times were 1 hr 20 min on Shag and 30 in on Duke)

I don't have maps! My GPS doesn't want to download onto my computer and I don't know why. I've we loaded everything and it's taking forever to load.

I'll try to remember the times, speeds, etc also. I guess I better by taking a pencil and pad out with me to write these on.

Winter has hit! It was very windy yesterday so I didn't ride. Hubby told me to quit being a weenie, put on some of my outdoor winter wear and get riding. I thought the wind had died down. I put on enough layers that I didn't feel cold at all. I was actually too warm, until the 20 degree air hit me in the face. I wore a bright orange fleece head band that covered my whole face though! I also wore 2 pairs of gloves, 2 pairs of socks, winter boots, beanie, hoody and that fleece head covering, and 5 layers of sweatshirts and winter coats!

Brenda - you must have your setting with Garmin Connect set on private. It won't let us view your tracks. :(

My goal was to do 4 miles, but I went out about 1/2 hour too late and got caught in the rain. It was cold on my face, so turned around and rode the fields by the barn to get 2 miles in.

I only rode today to get to 200! Yea!!! The wind was terrible this afternoon. We did 5 miles in 1 hour. Shaggy wanted out of that wind too. We rode most of it following a tree line or had the wind to out back!

Shaggy 7.19 http://connect.garmin.com/activity/154576830

(tv, I think you added some extra miles for me yesterday. After I put down the miles for the day and the total miles, I like to break out which horse I rode and for how many miles. Yesterday, I corrected 2 of my recent posts. One didn't have the gps address beside the horse's name and another didn't list the miles with the horse. So when I corrected them, they must have shown up as miles that I rode yesterday, and you credited me for 2 extra rides.) Anyways, after today's ride, I listed my total miles. With this ride, you still have me 2 miles too many. We can wait and change that tomorrow with tomorrow's ride, unless you want to do that today if you are updating other rides. I'm fine either way. Sorry for the confusion. I didn't realize that you would see those comments. Next time, if I have to correct something, I'll make sure I say that I'm doing that.

Tammy said...

I will correct yours to read 239.38 after your ride today. Thanks for the clarification.

I hit the 300 mile marker today, riding the fields with Traci. Very windy! Shaggy spooked as a bird flew up in front of his nose. He spun one way, and my cell phone spun the other way. We searched and searched, and can't find it! How can that be, when we are right in the area?

glad to know you will not be making miles on Saturday, lol. We will be at the show and i don't make many miles there either, so everybody needs to stay off their horses on saturday. Christine was busy this week and now that freeman needs to be slowed down on those mules, lol. i plan on setting up another ride day with Christine and get her in check so i can rest.

Horses Are Our Lives said...

You are soooo funny! I need to make up time soon! I've been taking it easy, and I have people on my heels now! LOL I'll start riding a 3rd horse next week! Watch out, I may catch up to you by the end of the year!

Tammy said...

Brenda - slight correction to YOUR records. On 5/12, you had 581.08 miles. You added 2.06 which would bring your total to 583.14, not 583.08 as you indicated (you shorted yourself a little bit). Your year to date after your 5.19 ride should be 671.45.

Horses Are Our Lives said...

thanks, tv! My GPS shorts me enough times, so I'll take that extra .06! LOL I'll correct it on my next post and catch up to your total! Good FAMDR! Looks like the Musil Poker Run was fun! I'll have to try to do that ride next year!

I rode Starlet bareback to make the 700 mark! She has the smoothest slow trot! We just trotted around and around the lot, with all the other horses beside us or around us. The air had gone from hot and humid, to a cool breeze. It was very nice out until I heard thunder and saw some lightening. It was time to be done!

The next 2 months will be a lot of arena riding for me... few miles here, few mile there, on younger horses or horses who just need more training. I hope to start getting Shag back to the CRP land and do some early morning rides before the heat!

Brought in 2 2-yr olds to saddle and stand tied. Worked Duster in the arena, free lunging, desensitizing to bag, throwing the rope over him. I should be on him in a day or two. Honey got to stand loose in the stall, walking around with an old saddle on. She is much more comfortable now with that cinch!

Great ride with Jess, Corie and Terri around the roads at Jess and Corie's! The wind picked up and the temp fell! We were glad to be heading north with the wind to our backs! It was still very warm for a December day! The best part of the ride was coming home. The sunset was spectacular over the Platte River near Schramm Park! Amazing color and reflections!
