Team 41: Juanita

 

Juanita

 

We own six horses, 2 AQHA and 4 APHA.  We show reiners and trail ride in the mountains and hills of different states all the time.  I have a really nice GPS unfortunately it is not a Garmin, dumbbell at Bass pro talked me into this one a couple of years ago.  Since I never really get lost I didn't have to learn how to use it, well computer idiot that I am, after the 18th of January it will be my job, lol.

We live in Iowa.

ode 7.66 miles today and Molly decided today that maybe she can be a trailhorse. now I have to figure out how to clear the miles from the day before, because i have to subtract and i am not going to keep that up once I get into bigger numbers,lol. Ray got worried about me and out he comes on his gator, God love him. i will have to carry the cell phone just to make him happy, I forgot how much work posting and riding two point is, great work out for me.

Rode 7.14 miles today, my new gps works in the barn yeah for me. i now know that riding a reiner for an hour puts a lil over 2 miles on it. i thought it would be more, but no, to much stopping to let them catch their air.

9.14 miles, was beat up by a kid today, who never got tired on the trail, i'm riding with old ladies next time

juanita said...

juanita said...

5.34 MILES in the cornfields at a trot in an hour.you burn over 500 calories in 60 minutes at a trot, i wonder if they mean sitting trot or posting trot. Well now out to the barn to ride a reining horse before i get ready for work

juanita said...

1.83 miles on a reiner, now to cleam up and get ready for work.

juanita said...

6.53 miles this morning, 12.6 top speed, average speed 5.4 mph, you only burn a lil over 400 calories an hour at my weight, i was wrong yesterday

juanita said...

11.42 miles this afternoon with the kid that tried to kill me last week. HOPE this isn't to late to post today.

juanita said...

3.32 miles, bugger not enough, I wish i would have looked at how many i would have to ride to get to the 70 mile marker, now I have to go out and ride a reiner with the trainer. i'm already frozen, darn.

juanita said...

2.46 miles in the arena, now the trainer is beating me up. I decided to ride the one we just put back into training and could we do it right so i could just get the rest of my miles it to make it to 70 miles, NOOOOOOOOOOoo, so he made me ride until we got it right.

juanita said...

2.14 mils in the indoor arena, starting out saddling in a heated barn. i am going to get hand a feet warmers or move south one or the other.

juanita said...

5.48 miles on dakota, my husband just shakes his head when i head out now. i'm certain he thinks the mental ward is where i should be. i will upload a pic later after my feet thaw. I have to get over 80 big time because i work more next week.

juanita said...

6.43 miles, poor molly, good thing reiners are in shape.
high speed train leaves tomorrow at 11 a.m.
tourist train leaves at 1 p.m.
MeMe you and I are on for 11, lol.

juanita said...

15.61 miles on this lovely sunday, wasn't so certain it was going to turn out so nice but it did. Now I am over the 100 mile mark with this.

juanita said...

no riding for Me today, was on call at the hospital and then got called in, well tomorrow is another day.

juanita said...

2.61miles, it was still cold in the arena, even if it broke the wind, burrrrrrrr, hope for a better temp tomorrow afternoon

juanita said...

i don't know why that shows above as 11;27 AM because my watch and computer says it is 1;29 pm.

juanita said...

6.18 miles most of it on lena, and i did it all in the arena, couldn't make myself go out. i had no idea how slow lena trots and canters until i watched how long it took to make any distance. Dakota would have walked that fast, lol. I guess that's why we trotted with the kid, while she walked last time.

juanita said...

Well, i didn't ride today because of the cold. the kid came out and rode by herself, just couldn't talk the old lady into doing it. my Christmas stuff is finally put away. Tomorrow i ride, since i don't have to go to work until late.

juanita said...

5.78 miles on dakota in arena, walk, big ground eating trot, and ground eating canter. Well off to clean up for work.

juanita said...

2.39 miles on dakota, now i have ridden her enough that we are doing flying lead changes with the english saddle. She speeds up a lil bit but not bad.

juanita said...

The high speed train leaves out again tomorrow at 11a.m. the tourist train leaves at one. Ray said if it doesn't warm up he may not make the tourist train.

juanita said...

20.63 miles, yippy, the fast train went out, which would have been just me this morning, and then the fast train went out again with the kid and she helped me get over 20. i said if i can just get to 18 i would be so happy and she just kept riding. i work tomorrow so no riding for me.

juanita said...

8.91 miles. the kid loves riding with me because she gets to watch the gps and the miles rack up. Took a pic of her today and will put it on FB

juanita said...

15.67 with two rides today, Diane and kally rode with me this afternoon and it was so cute, lol.

juanita said...

16.73 miles, rode Dakota this morning and she can extend trot at 11.1 mph, the trainer said i should buy a cart and race her, then ponyed a colt for a few miles so does that count as double miles? Then the kid came and we flew and just came in after letting the horses dry enough to put them out.

juanita said...

It is after six i don't know why the thing about says after 4 p.m.

Tammy said...

Google/Blogger is probably programmed for pacific time.

juanita said...

4.26 miles, not many today, just enough to relax my stress, but not enough to make it go away, darn it. Work tomorrow, so no miles, had many doctor's appointments with my husband this a.m. so didn't get to ride with Brent either.

juanita said...

16.53 miles with team purple today, we trotted the day away. it was fun. i tried to get just a lil point more than her today by riding down to the barn and then i realized that I had shut my gps off so she had to ride down with me the second time, lol. my husband saw her out the window and told me she rode down and back up from the barn to beat me, lol.

juanita said...

I just realized, i am now over the two hundred mark, yipppppppeeeeeee

Christine said...

What a FUN day yesterday!! Congratulations for making it to the 200 mile mark!! :)

juanita said...

4.39 miles, dropped my garmin again after two miles, stills works, God love that company. i finally put it on a chair and got the rest of my miles outside ponying Baby.

juanita said...

10.43 miles, short one this morning and longer this afternoon, what a great afternoon ride, LOST MY PHONE SOMEWHERE, thought i lost my camera, but as luck would have it, was still in the house. now i have no phone numbers. My gps was in my zipper pocket or i more than likely would have lost that thing also.

juanita said...

YEAR TO DATE 215.22. I just figured out what you meant

juanita said...

i am so excited, not helped but excited. i looked at my gps because TV said to follow my tracks to find my phone. i sat with the thing and discovered that i have all my tracks on there, lol. i know that because when i figured out what the lil arrow was, i knew i had not ridden a million blue lines on the farm behind us today. So apparently you should delete your tracks also. if i would have known that before maybe i could have found my phone tomorrow, but alas i have a mass of cris crossing lines from riding the same farms over and over. oh well i did spend the time tonight because of my phone to actually look at it.

juanita said...

12.01 miles today 227.23 YEAR TO DATE 227.23
I found my phone with the help of my house engineer.
I either have to get a fanny pack or make certain that all my pockets zip.

juanita said...

3.92 miles this morning, 231.15 year to date

MeMe crossed the road and took off in the fields, you can't trust those kids to let you rest at all, lol.

JUANITA said...

juanita said...

juanita said...

juanita said...

6.91 miles MILES TO DATE 253.55 Rode Phoenix today that won't happen again, sliders on the back, made for a slick slow ride, thank goodness she is the best trail horse besides being a fun reiner.

juanita said...

7.23 miles today, MILES TO DATE 260.78 No riding for me tomorrow i have to work. The weekend doesn't look good for riding with the temps, slow riding may be in order for the horses lungs, no canter and no constant trotting.

juanita said...

5.25 miles today, MILES TO DATE 266.03. I wanted to go over ten but i wanted to work Baby more. MEME was coming in as I was going out.

juanita said...

I had to work today or I would have been out riding.

juanita said...

8.66 miles today, MILES TO DATE 274.69, saw MEME as we were driving in this afternoon so i knew i had to get riding even with a short amount of time. Then I found our Christine is going strong again, young people just don't give us old people a break.

juanita said...

2.37 miles today, MILES TO DATE 277.06 not my best effort today

juanita said...

10.51miles, MILES TO DATE 287.57 i would have done over fifteen but my lovely husband called and said he was lonely, since i had worked all day yesterday. What a cutie I plan on getting up really earlier tomorrow and riding no matter how cold or windy, while he sleeps.

juanita said...

13.02 Miles today, MILES TO DATE 300.59 YYYYIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEE, poor lena she has become by mount, she doesn't have sliders on

juanita said...

21.12 miles today, 321.71 MILES TO DATE, I rode with Christine, but her GPS didn't pick up right away, not my problem, since i have to take the extra feet when I can on her. her horse bling max speed 23.7 and that saddlebred was not full out, I know she had another 3 to 4 miles per hour,. i will have to bury that christine at some point, but the earth has to thaw so it isn't so hard to do.

juanita said...

1.46 miles, MTD 323.17 Wanted to get to 325 but it was to muddy to mess up the farmers fields and way to muddy on the horse.

juanita said...

7.69 Miles, 330.86 MILES TO DATE, saw MeMe putting her horse away as we were getting home, The kid was here so we went riding, froze my toes off, didn't dress warm enough

juanita said...

10.68 miles today, MILES TO DATE 341.54 Rode part of the day with MEME, met her out on the trail. Talked to christine while picking up fence posts.

juanita said...

2.17 Miles in arena 343.71 MILES TO DATE The sun was shining so the darn thing worked in the arena, rode molly, getting ready for the AQHA shows. To slick out and muddy to ride the fields and hills, Everybody needs a big pat on the back for moving into the 200 miles mark this early in the year. Except, Christine who needs to stay in the house and make me pot scrubber,lol.

juanita said...

16.78 miles, 360.49 MILES TO DATE didn't get to start until after one, visited with folks on the road to tilley's or maybe i would have done more without those standing still minutes, called Christine while i was out, but no answer wish i could hit the 400 mark this week but it might kill my horse

juanita said...

Well, it is five minutes until nine and i rode 4.93 miles in the sleet and rain, i had my bag lady look. horse is still saddled and after i ride the reiners i plan on putting another 2 or 3. i need to make tomorrow my goal setter for the month. i'm not going to add my miles until i see if i make it out again this afternoon, darn gps will not pick up in the arena when it is cloudy.

juanita said...

10.38 total miles for Feb 28 370.87 MILES TO DATE The second ride out wasn't as bad, no sleet and the temp was up.

juanita said...

4.12 miles, 374.99 MILES TO DATE Did not make my goal of 380 today, i just couldn't take the cold, and wind. nice weather tomorrow and i work. Lena lost a front shoe to add to my issues, so had to ride the reiner that pretends she isn't broke, when she has to do anything different. hope the shoer can get here by Tuesday, because if it snows, Ray's horse will be on for Friday afternoon.

juanita said...

10.64miles this afternoon,385.63 MILEs to DATE, Brent was here when I rode out and the kid was here when i got back, slow ride, took the show reiner and we spent lots of time backing up on the soybean fields. she wanted to trot and canter back and i wanted to walk. i get to pick the speed no matter which direction we are going. It is very apparent she has not been ridden out enough.

juanita said...

called christine at the start from the fairy phone and called her again when i was coming in, i had to make certain she was still in the house, lol, she was, to busy being a new grandma and home health nurse, love you christine, see you on the 8th

juanita said...

18.72 miles MILES TO DATE 403.35 My one and only time I will be in first and i posted it to late, lol. Top speed with the kids today 29.4 MPH, rode my fat lil reiner that I love to bits. Never let her run full speed, but we were places we shouldn't have been and it was flat and smooth and i just couldn't help myself. Called Christine from the new fairy phone and I bet she didn't know it was me calling. I told the kid, i am riding with Christine next thrusday and i will have to run ahead of her and back again to stay ahead, lol

Tammy said...

Congrats for making it to the top, Juanita and I'll update tonight JUST FOR YOU! However, you shorted yourself a mile. You were at 385.63 (see post on Mar 2 which jived with my numbers) and then you added 18.72. That would equal 404.35!

I love that you opened up your mare today!

juanita said...

Well, it is dark out and i just dragged my sorry rear in. i rode all day and about the time i was going to quit the kid showed up and we did more. i will take a pic of my gps, but i am not going to delete the miles just add to them tomorrow and take another pic. Christine should be very worried about how far i went today. i am bad enough on my own, but add that kid and it just gets better and better for me. Be afraid Christine, be very afraid.

juanita said...

30.49 miles in two days, MILES TO DATE 434.84 I hope I added correctly this time. Tomorrow it is on Christine, I am coming armed

Annette said...

Congrats Juanita! I just read where you topped out at almost 30mph. I dont know if I have the guts to go that fast or a horse that would even come close! Way to go

juanita said...

Well, hope Christine eats all my cupcakes today, yuk yuk, it would be like going to the circus and eating to much, poor thing wouldn't be able to ride after lunch.

juanita said...

21.24 miles, MILES TO DATE 456.08 All afternoon the kid and i had to listen to Christine talk about how tired she was and how upset her stomach was. Well some of those cupcakes were just special for her. I was waiting for her bowels to explode at any minute. I did have more miles than her because I had the kid hold her while I ran Bling up a field, lol.

juanita said...

so bad to hear Christine had a rough night. i will cook for her more often. Nice to see she posted late so we are still at the top, even if it is only until the site is updated, poor Christine must have been the stomach flu. Christine next time you are coming up here and we are putting you on a reiner and teaching you to spin. had a great time, Christine pushes me and that kid tries to kill me.

juanita said...

Well, I rode today must have been over 200 miles, but I forgot to turn on my GPs, I think Christine paid Diane, ray and MeMe to make me forget, darn it. it was fun to ride with all of them and to see my husband on a horse again.

Kristy said...

Juanita

Here is the information about my trail pad. I have 3 and love them. I got them at the Paddock in Omaha. They had to special order them for me. It is made by Pacific Rim International. The tag says PRI Continental, Double Back Trail Pad for dressage saddles, Double Back padding with fleece lining. Hope this helps.
Kristy

juanita said...

10.51 miles today, MILES TO DATE 466.59 Went to the horse fair with Diane and my great husband, came home while he took a nap i beat lena up with this time. She did 29.9MPH at top speed so she beat out my lil fatty, in fairness to her she was running in a cornfield and not a flat runway so i would like to know what she can really do. have to recharge the battery on my camera to take a pic but will in the p.m.

That MEME won't tell me yesterday what her gps said so she is now on my hit list, may feed her a cupcake like Christine. now that darn Brenda messick was giving me grieve at the horse fair and she is going to be after Christine and i.

juanita said...

thanks kristy, i will look into them.

juanita said...

8.30 miles MILES TO DATE 474.89. Visited with some friends while on the horse so lots of down time, wish i would have pushed a lil but didn't know i was that close to 475, darn. That Christine was out riding with her new frog togs, nice and dry and not hot. I was sweating like a pig in the oil skin, old folks never get a break

juanita said...

11.37 miles MILES TO DATE 486.26, The most exciting thing today i found my other gps with the maps on it, lol. If i would have not lost it i wouldn't have bought a new one or not started counting miles until after January 18th. I would have had to relearn how to use that one.

juanita said...

I am at work today, but I heard that Christine is giving a cash prize of $1,000 to the second place winner.

juanita said...

21.73 miles today, 507.99 MILES TO DATE. i took a pic of my gps and thought it had taken the pic and then i deleted my miles from the gps and i didn't operate the camera correctly, well i am taking these miles i rode them

juanita said...

34.36 miles, MILES to DATE 542.35 I did fly thru the air today, but with my amazing skills landed on my feet with the reins in the hands, so frequent flyer miles count when a horse bucks. i also was told today by Tif who decided to ride the fast train that a push up bra isn't the best choice for that speed, We did seen Christine in the morning, but really when we said the fast train was going out she was no where to be found, must be tired of riding. Meme was with us and that lil 35mph horse of hers tried to get me dumped, kids can't trust them. The kid was there and so were Clay and Laura. My husband and the kid ride $10,000 trail horses they never do anything bad.

JUANITA said...

I forgot to mention that the 34 plus miles was over 3 days, i thought i would get everybody excited first, lol

juanita said...

3.52 miles MILES TO DATE 545.87 had lots of work to do to beat the rain, looks bad for the rest of the week, hope to get another short one in tomorrow, since i work on Wednesday

juanita said...

Must have posted my march 19th miles to late to make the board, darn.

juanita said...

2.81 miles, MILES TO DATE 548.68 rode very early while had a lil break in the rain, rode with the trainer but the gps wouldn't pick up with the clouds, oh well. May not make my goal this month, darn it.

juanita said...

juanita said...

juanita said...

5.32 miles MILES TO DATE 555.93 Was at horse shows and the gps wouldn't work in the arena so the only miles were outside riding around to relax the horses

juanita said...

17.61 miles MILES TO DATE 573.54 rode over ten this morning, went to the hospital, they sent me home and i rode again. I may make my goal for the month.

juanita said...

10.83 miles, MILES TO DATE 584.37 . Rode molly in the a.m. and then rode again this afternoon with MEME, man does that girl talk, lol

juanita said...

6.31 miles, MILES TO DATE 590.68, didn't ride the reiners today just got them ready for the trainer and took off on lena, Clay was here when i left and came back one hour and 18 minutes. wish i could get the other miles left to make it to 600, that would make up for the miles i lost in Feb.

juanita said...

never got out of the indoor arena at the show today, so none of my distance showed up, oh well.

juanita said...

9.86 miles MILES TO DATE 600.54 rode with Desra today. she ride a horse correctly which is always nice to see. She was so sore because i told her i had to finish my miles to make 600 and we did. We walked almost the entire way which was a change of pace for my derby horses.

Horses Are Our Lives said...

Congrats!!! Keep an eye on that Christine. You know, she isn't going to let you stay ahead for long! LOL

juanita said...

4.37 miles, MILES TO DATE 604.91. I hate to complain, but my leg is still hurting, but that darn Christine is going to make me ride a lil after classes at work and yard work all morning. Wasn't the weather lovely this morning, it was way to good

JUANITA said...

well, I'm glad i didn't go out and ride .03 miles to make it to 605 because it wouldn't have been enough and the joke would have been on me, what a dumb bell.

Christine said...

Tomorrow will be a lot of FUN!! Rain or Shine! Miss you lady!!

Juanita said...

8.11 miles, 613.02 MILES TO DATE, Had to beat the school bus and just got in, he drives like it is a NASCAR event down our gravel road. Tried to call Christine, but we got signal failed. MEME rode where she shouldn't have today. i told her don't call me if you show up in jail.

JUANITA said...

JUANITA said...

19.28 miles with Christine, MILES TO DATE 749.98 I could kick myself for not riding .02 more, Had so much fun on the fast train, but we can ride slow if anybody wants to ride with us.

JUANITA said...

16.18 miles yesterday, this morning and this afternoon all added. i had some down time yesterday on the road but it was well worth it, the folks down the road have built trails out the back of their house and have invited me to ride on them, yeah.

Kristy said...

Got your note...yes, I would love to ride with you. I am in school this week and then "School's Out For Summer" (name that tune, lol) Taking a short vacation with my aunt and daughter and then I'll have all summer free. I can head to Iowa, as the only place I have ridden "across the river" is Stone Park. I would like to try out some other places. Let me know. Sorry I am not on facebook

Kristy

JUANITA said...

14.8 miles MILES TO DATE 780.96, not many miles for the last 3 days, but i rode west oak today with Kally. will miss that kid. She wants to hook up with christine and i at Christine's place after she moves to missouri.

JUANITA said...

20.40 miles today, MILES TO DATE 801.36 started riding before 7 this morning, took off again after shoes and pads on lena and finished the ride. Talked to Christine while i was out, she has got to quit running around in the weeds with her cloths off so she doesn't get poison ivy, lol

Christine said...

Congratulations on 800 Juanita!! Whoot Whoot!

Horses Are Our Lives said...

JUANITA said...

13.28 miles for yesterday and rode lil fat reiners butt off tonight, MILES TO DATE 814.64, just got in and now i have to fix supper and get stuff ready for tomorrow, Christine is the best offered to let me ride Taz if i could come back on Saturday, but my lil fellow doesn't want to and he will be alone all day tomorrow.

JUANITA said...

18.17 miles, MILES TO DATE 832.81, christine will be much further ahead after tomorrow riding.

JUANITA said...

8.33 miles yesterday with all those derby riders, kicking butt at the poker ride i will have to ride like the wind, lol. MILES TO DATE 841.14, slow train with RAY part of the time, but we are so lucky he still wants and can do it.

juanita said...

12.68 yesterday, We are back at the hospital. MILES TO DATE 853.82, well no riding for me for a time, but ray is once again in safe hands.

Horses Are Our Lives said...

I hope all is well with Ray! Thinking of you and hoping all is well! Brenda

JUANITA said...

9.56 miles MILES TO DATE 863.38 Got home at noon, Ray is weak but great and i rode to relax, it was nice after being in a hospital room since Tuesday night. Slow ride but to hot to go fast and just riding emptied my mind.

JUANITA said...

13.33 miles, MILES TO DATE 876.71, Took two horses to Waubonsie State Park today, Ray sat under a shade tree and visited with friends, who i think thought it was to hot to ride. I rode all alone and that was fine with me.

JUANITA said...

3.92 miles MILES TO DATE 880.63 Molly doesn't like the concept of distance derby, lol. Great show horse however.

JUANITA said...

20.35 miles Friday and sunday, MILES TO DATE 900.98 sucks wish i had gone another .02. Rode with with my doll this morning around the place and then he thought he was good to go so we put the horses in the trailer and went to the park. he did great, and made my heart sing to see him ride.

JUANITA said...

12.27 miles, MILES TO DATE 913.25 I rode more but couldn't get my gps to start picking up a connection, oh well. Rode at Waubonsie all alone, poor me, Ray changed his mind about coming and I thought it would be cooler in the trees, and it was. I pick the flat spot on the second loop and walked one way and cantered the other on the two show horses, Brent said they needed a spot to canter a distance, poor Molly. she is a lil over weight, but Dakota is like riding a deer. When I came back to switch out horses there wasn't a person in the park.

JUANITA said...

12.66 miles, MILES TO DATE 925.91 couldn't get my garmin to delete the last set of miles so thanks to Meme I could find the place I needed on the Lowrance gps that I have, Rode with ray this morning over 2.6 miles but couldn't get it to run again this afternoon and somehow I deleted what we had rode. Anybody interested in buying my lowrance with all the maps, no techie am I. At least I was able to finally delete the miles from the garmin, played with the lowrance while I was riding and the most I could get it to do was show how fast I was going.

JUANITA said...

Seemed odd to watch the combines going in the fields, visited with our elderly neighbor to see how he was doing. I have a hard time riding that long that slow, hurts my rear, but the gravel is to hard on them.

Tammy said...

I found a mistake in my calc and had to go back. This one should be 1189.69 not 1189.79.

Tammy said...

As a result of the earlier correction, July should have finished at 1201.77.

Tammy said...

Based on the July correction, this should be 1330.02 + 14.11 = 1344.13.

Tammy said...

Please adjust your total to 1364.24. Sometimes my eyes look at so many that I just don't see a transposition or catch that I am looking at something wrong. Sorry for the inconvenience but with you & Purple so close, it was best to get it straightened out now. Would be glad to have someone else audit if you would like.

JUANITA said...

14.26 miles, MILES TO DATE 1378.53 Terri and I have been using the same calculator.

JUANITA said...

Miles TO DATE 1378.50 I swear Terri Bergen and myself are using the same calculator, lol, on call at the hospital so no riding until after five if they don't call me in.

JUANITA said...

14.14 miles on Wednesday, MILES to DATE 1382.64 The giggles just won't go away, Christine made me laugh while we talked on the phone and rode and she is still making me laugh, I knew if I posted these yesterday, she would have gone out on that mule and rode for 3 hours in the dark.

JUANITA said...

3.35 miles yesterday, 1385.99 MILES TO DATE. I took the pic of my gps but didn't delete the miles on it from the ride on Wednesday before I did it, on purpose. I knew I wouldn't get to ride lots yesterday and thought Christine might have to really get out there and move that mule, lol, again the old lady giggles.

Tammy said...

Darling.... take off Terri's glasses! :) 1378.5 + 14.14 = 1392.64. You shorted yourself 10 miles! Can I have them?

Tammy said...

And because of previous entry, this would now be 1395.99

Tammy said...

Just because I know it will come down to the noses in the end, your total should be 1565.09 here, not .10. ;)

Tammy said...

1584.27 due to above correction.

JUANITA said...

JUANITA said...

161.3 Miles on vacation, MILES TO DATE 1863.62 I had a ball, My trail guide two of the days was Tom Akers(spelling), he was one of our space guys, he flew in space on the shuttle, wow for me. Met friends who let me ride their gaited horses several different times. On the all day private ride I rode their rocky mountain, on two different afternoon rides I rode their sorrel walker and then their paint walker. Kallie,(the kid met us down at the event and she rode the feet off her horse and met tons of new horse friends. Ray's horse decided he was going to be a scuba diver a couple of times and all within twenty feet. Got invited to the vet tent a couple of evenings for the local riders doing blue grass music. Went up to Tom on Friday and told him I was going to ride a non gaited horse on the ALL DAY FAST, he said if I could stand it so could he. Anna started laughing and told him he didn't know how I rode. At lunch half of the 23 bowed out, but the lil paint was there to the end and then went back out and rode with Ray and Kally. I just had to trot passed the vet set up and giggle with Doc and Anna. Told them to get those gaited horses back out and ride.

JUANITA said...

rode 3 hours today but the gps wouldn't work in the indoor arena, oh well will have to try and get some outdoor time in this week before the weather gets bad.

JUANITA said...

6.32 miles last Friday with Shelley Miller, MILES TO DATE 1869.94. I have been riding lots but in the indoor arena and the miles just don't pick up with the doors shut, Karen johnson is coming today and Ray and i are going to ride with her.

JUANITA said...

I have not been able to get the computer to upload pic the last couple of times so have not posted pics of my miles. unless the kids show up to fix my issues it will not change. I am not techie and don't care, lol, but I sit a horse fairly well, lol> we had lots of folks over today and rode in the arena so no miles showed up. Jaimie was not able to make it due to her pipe issues but there is always another time.

JUANITA said...

22.48 for this week. MILES TO DATE 1903.38 All these were Tuesday, Wednesday and today, not fast but steady. Wish I would have ridden this morning instead of afternoon a lil brisk and Ray had a full tummy and didn't want to go out after the big meal.

Good going Christine, you are the bomb.

Follow Your Dreams said...

You are BOTH "the bomb" in my book! Congratulations! VERY impressive and motivational!

I've enjoyed watching both of you "battle" back and forth. It's been a great year of riding no matter what the totals end up being.

The year isn't even over yet. Hmmm ... I wonder what the FINAL totals will be!

JUANITA said...

45.25 miles MILES TO DATE 1919.04 miles. Friday round one, took off on Ray's horse in the morning. He never wants to see me again. Round two, Dakota Called Meme to see if she wanted to ride I would have saddled a horse for her but no. Saturday round one, I was riding at 8 fifteen in the morning, yes that is the morning on Phoenix, Round two Rebel, Meme came into the drive as I was leaving and yes it was still morning, Told her to jump on Phoenix since she was still saddled but she chose not to ride Phoenix, Round 3 Phenix again since she still had her saddle on and I wanted to get it going while I was in the mood. The race is on, lol
