About this deal

We were warned that it was very rocky and very hilly there (hence the reason for the failed attempt at pour in pads) and we almost didn't go because I was worried about finishing off the year at a tough ride but boy am I glad we did. So far this year we have done 2 novice rides (one as group leader), one 10 mile intro ride, and 5 Limited Distance Rides (25-30 miles). We still had over half an hour until maximum time so we still had our full half our to pulse down and vet in. He has to ride most of the horses because I get to scared and can only handle Stitch, Chico, and Jake.

Comet was unfortuantely a little off at the end on his right hind (likely due to his misbehavior at the start) but not enough to cost them a novice completion! So when little N/N came by, Gran affirmed that it was a sign from Margaret who requested her to find happiness in accepting this child. Needless to say, this Foundation enabled my goals in sport which I realize more and more every day how much that meant for my recovery overall from this spinal cord injury and paraplegia. We headed back to the trailer and I offered that we could go home but Emily told me I should still ride the next day. It's at a new location which is a motocross park that has 60+ electric sites with their own water spigots.

Daisy hasn't been out of the arena since last winter and she did great even with the neighbors big dog barking at us when we rode by. I have an 1960’s something Arab-cut Big Horn western saddle that I found in someone’s manure pile years and years ago.

I have found that keeping it in a low gear is just as big of help for riding in the softer conditions. She has very little training and will be spending the winter at a trainer to get her saddle broke and ready to ride. Stitch pulsed down instantly and vetted through easily getting almost all A's (the vet actually told me I should switch to CTR since she was pulsing so low except for the fact that she hates when people do CTR because the vetting is a pain, she was shocked given Stitch's build). Got Jake out again this morning while I worked out to a bowl of alfalfa pellets and a pile of alfalfa.

We rode with our friend C (who did the 2nd day of our back to back ride with me) and her friend K which turned out to be a really fun group. I have always said if I could choose, I would have bought a section D, a show cob or a Connemara, which I have always longed for. The ride was supposed to be at the park an hour for us but earlier this summer the ride managers found out that the DNR had banned vehicle traffic on the bridge that led to the overflow parking. Apparently there was a gun range near the camp which was a little unsettling, although it managed to scare me more than Stitch. There was one camp on the left and they were turning past the campground on the right so I assumed there was a third set of campsites.

Unfortunately we noticed her rear right leg was a little puffy and warm so we kept her inside with an ice boot for the next 2 days. I wasn't going to go to the ride this weekend (DH wants to go duck hunting) but I decided I'll drive Stitch down to Emily's in the little trailer Wednesday night and go with her. If someone wants to correct me or even better give me a different name for their company I'll gladly take suggestions. There's only 20 camp sites in the horse part of the camp which is definitely not enough room for everyone without an overflow area so the ride managers had to find a new spot. Unfortunately her back was a little sore at the finish so I need to work on figuring out her new pad and where to put my extra boots but we got our first completion of the year!We were soaking within minutes and put the horses away and headed to the lake for the day with DH's family. I realized I'm very much a mare person and so I hope this little lady and I get along as well as Stitch and I do! We also noticed how skinny he's gotten since the grass has disappeared and we've started feeding hay. There is another group in our neighborhood of cyclists who would pass most of us on those morning climbs. I asked on the AERC page if anyone had heard of Adhere being used as a pad and was greeted with responses of "Get those out immediately, they're hurting her" and "Your poor horse".

E and C were worried they wouldn't be able to get back on their horses (usually it's me who has to get off when needed since I ride the 14. But things changed for me about 5 years ago – I retired, no fan fares or big announcements, it just happened. DH wanted to sight in his gun (whatever that means) but he realized I was going to be gone tonight (Wednesday) at a community Halloween event handing out candy so he agreed that we could go for a ride last night. I had a good time being a vet scribe since I had volunteered with most of the ride vets last year at other various rides. Even though we think we are good our body may tell us differently and the horse always senses unease.We decided to take Stitch and Major our for a quick preride down to where I got stuck so I could show Emily. Stitch is a 6 year old APHA mare (I have her registration papers ready to send in, I just haven't gotten around to it) who's parents were both registered Quarter Horses.
