Decided I would try to go bareback since I was planning on riding just around the home place and small field, Cutter did well until we started trotting and than he got a little frisky and we decided to take it back down to just a nice slow walk. I am so not a bareback rider!

Had a wonderful ride on Dionnes awesome gelding Cole! Had a saddle malfunction and my off billet came loose and the saddle and I both feel off. Landed pretty hard on my tail bone and back. I'm a little sore but will be fine. Thanks Dionne for the great ride. That gelding is a keeper!

Dionne said...

Thank you for coming out! I am so sorry you fell... I hope you're not too sore! I told you all his weaving at the start was going to get you more mileage than me!

After my 17 mile ride yesterday I didn't think I would get any ride time in today, than John decided we needed to work some new cows that we got so I saddled Cutter up and headed out to the small stocks field to bring the cows in. Afterwards we just guarded the alley way to make sure no one snuck out before they got thier shots. Short ride with a lot of standing around but I'll take it!

We got the last of the cows moved to the Douglas pasture today. Going to be pretty quiet at home with no momma cows or babies around now for a while. Guess that will give us time to redo the pens and get the lot's spotless! Cutter and Red are happy, tomorrow they get turned out to the pasture!

Took Cutter out early this morning before the heat set in. Trotted quite a bit on the rock roads and he was pretty tender footed since I took his shoes off last week. Might have to put front shoes back on him?? His hoofs were so hard when we pulled his shoes I didn't think he would need them, will try him out some more and see how he does.

Did a quick ride around the section and walked up some of the water ways in the bean field. We got some much needed rain last night and the beans are looking better already. Alfalfa is blooming but it's not very tall, we won't yield as much on the second cutting this year as we did last year.

8.62 Miles on Cutter. Wanted to hit the 700 mile mark so headed out with the new dog Sissy with me... she decided we would go along some tree lines and beside some fields and than to the creek, she started chasing something and I had to go after her so turned into a longer ride than what I was exspecting. But I hit the 700 mark!

Didn't even make it to the corner and the beagle was following me so had to make it a short ride because the dog will get to hot. Does anyone know why the garmin fit on the iphone 4S keeps shutting itself off? I followed the same tracks I have before and when I checked it it had shut off at .49 miles???? It did that to me at Rock Creek Station also. Is anyone else having problems? I was able to find out how far I went because I traveled the same route I have a hundred times already. Any idea's??

Headed out later than I wanted to. It was already muggy and humid so just stuck close to home. After the ride I gave Cutter a nice cool shower and put him under the fans and Red was down at the pen just looking at me so I went and got him and gave him a cool shower also and put him under the fans... spoiled rotten horses I swear. Might try to get out again later on today to ride once evening rolls around... I'm thinking I need to start riding in the dark...

Got up at 4:30 am and headed for Juanita's to grab her and head for Waubonsie! Best thought of plans.....
Got to Juanita's before 6 am and she was ready so we headed towards Waubonsie and got about 3-4 miles East of Glennwood and got a flat tire on the truck... I have roadside assistance but it failed me... one hour wait turned into a 2 hour wait so we decided to call my hubby instead, he showed up with a generator and air compressor and a plug kit and had us back on the road in no time flat! Gotta love husbands! Decided we would just head back to Juanita's and ride instead since it was starting to get warm and didn't want to do the hills in the heat. Had a great ride at her house and met Shelly who is awesome! Saw Juanita's new FANCY horse and met her husband. A crummy morning turned into a great ride wtih a great friend!

Southeast PRR at Wabash Trail. Had a great ride, tire was low on the pick up so Tammy M came and picked me up and I rode with her and Deb. Was pretty warm! Wind started picking up on our way back to the trailer but no rain. After I got home and got Cutter rinsed and put away and storm came in and we got just enough rain to wet the concrete. Would of liked to have had a lot more.

Went and participated in the Haunted Trail Challenge put on by Kelli Paulsen. Had a wonderful time eventhough I froze the whole time! Cutter and I placed first in the novice division so I was pretty shocked when she called my name. I knew Cutter had done a good job but we struggled at the gate a little bit and I actually let go of it at one point (big no no) but maybe she just didn't see that..... it was muddy and cold but well worth the drive up there! This is the second Haunted Trail challange I have participated in, need to get to more of these events.

Finially made it to the 1000 mile Club! And on the best horse ever! I decided to ride up and down the road a couple times and than just ended up riding in a big circle around the cows until I knew I had enough distance to cross that 1000 mile mark! Now I can officialy take it easy and not have to worry about hitting any goals! Weather is going to be decent this week so maybe I can skip out of work early a day to get some riding in. I got voted on to the 4H council so that was exciting!
