When I am tallying up the miles, I try to keep up with who hits some milestones with their last ride. After adding up today’s miles:
- #41 Juanita crossed 1,100 miles
- #49 Kimes exceeded 700 miles
- #1 Vasa (me) finally passed the 600 mile marker
- #23 Reilly hit 500 miles
- #8 Griffin passed 300 miles
Are you happy with where you are in the Derby? Are you riding more or less than you thought you would? Has the Derby motivated you? Have you noticed any changes in your horse? Are they more willing? Do they look better? Or (gasp!), are they souring to the rides?
From my perspective, I had hoped I would log more hours on some of my other horses. It’s just hard not to take the easy route and ride Windy. I do try to take Fancy if I am riding with others but just not comfortable putting solo miles on the others like I do with Windy. I might try to do more of that the second half of this competition.
I just wanted to say that I am having a blast with the Derby. It if fun to meet you, albeit some just virtually, and “share” our rides.
