Team 32 - Rather Be Riding *



This year I want to push myself to get in the saddle even more. 2013 threw a lot of curve ball bills at me so I wasn’t able to travel with the horses as much as I would have liked to – 2014 I hope will be a better year financially so I can do more with the horses. I plan to work toward really softening my horses this next year; take more lessons, go to more shows & my 1 big goal is to save enough to go to at least 1 CTR! (I miss them so much it makes my soul hurt!) Would love to do 1 on each horse, but that will depend on CTR locations.

After 2013 I no longer have a main mount; I have built such a great relationship with both my horses I love riding them both equally & find myself having a very hard time choosing which to ride; which is a good problem to have. My old man; Festus; a 21 year old (in 2014) Grullo Quarter horse that I have had for 17 years now (as seen is photo above). He is my "once in a life time horse" and even with his quirks I still can't imagine ever having to replace him. My second mount is my mare Libby; a 13 year old (in 2014) Chestnut 1/2 Welsh, 1/4 Thoroughbred, 1/4 Trakanter that we had breed for us as the "ultimate trail horse" by a close friend. This past year she has made some great changes & I am very excited to continue to develop her.

I learned a lot about myself & my horses this past year – very excited to continue that journey!

So excited to get out, get riding, and meet more DD riders!

    Rode with Marlene.
    I swear with age Festus gets more & more go in him! 21 years old, at the end of 10 miles.. in the winter when he isn't in great shape... he still wanted & could have gone another 10 miles. whew!
    Then took Libby of a short bareback ride around the alfalfa field.

    Rode to Fort Kearney Rec. area - the plan was to back track from there but when I went over the bridge that crosses the river, which I have done several times before, one of the boards gave out under Libby - scared me enough & thankfully there was another way home so I didn't have to go back over it. I'll have to call the park this week & let them know. Nothing like a little adventure - Glad I have a good horse with a sound mind!

    Moved out today & tested his "in shapeness" He did very well. But did notice some good sized puffs on his back right legs - wasn't there last time I rode, wonder what he did. Not lame or off, just heat & swelling. So he got some good ligament gel!

    1. Thank you! Over all I enjoyed the ride - despite what people saw, Festus was a good boy 90% of the ride. Wish PnRs would have gone better - & looking back at the miles & knowing the pace I rode - I don't know what I could have done different, except that his age doesn't do well in Spring heat. It was good & fun to meet you & so many other NE riders! Excited to see you all even more in the year!

      After a wasted week of looking & test driving trucks with no luck I got in a great ride finally. Short, but it was good beginning to end. We worked on Libby's ditch tantrums, loping & trotting collected & controlled, side-passing, backing - she was so good!

    1st ride over 10 miles on Lib in a while. The pony in her has gained some of her winter weight back! Ugg - I swear she can look at grass & gain 10 lbs - so back to the grind & getting her ready for the Branched Oak CTR in June. Even worked on ditches & logs on the trail & she's doing better with every ride :)

    Great ride! I'm really starting to not only love that mare (I have always loved her) but I really enjoy her now. We aren't "bonded" yet - but hopefully some CTRs will help with that.

    PRR Wednesday night ride at Cottonmill Park. I was very happy with Libby's group behavior - she doesn't get to ride in groups very often/enough. Just a little excitement/jigging but was easily kept in check & corrected - by a half hour in she settled right in.

    Great ride! It cooled down just enough to go for a little bit longer ride & there was a nice breeze. Festus was a good boy, we worked on stopping - stopping & backing - by about 4 times he was sliding to a stop & stepping back on his own; the old man likes to ignore me some times so this was a good thing to do while on our way back toward home!

    Trail Challenge. Festus & I got 1st in In Hand Trail, 1st in Basic Trail & 2nd in Extreme. - He was unsure of the pole & barrel obstacle & made a "thing" out of it, otherwise I think we would have had it in the bag. Now we know what we need to work on & got a lot of good ideas for new obstacles & materials to use at home! :)

    Branched Oak 2014 Trail Challenge - Libby & I placed 5th out of 63 adults! A complete & total unexpected wonderful surprise! I rode Festus last year I we got 7th or 8th - never thought we would place - SO proud of my little mare! & Tom was such a trooper - handled Festus great even with his lack of horsemanship riding skills - very proud of both of them - it wasn't always pretty but Tom had fun & STAYED on!

    I placed 2nd with my 1st perfect score! Libby did well - but should have had shoes - But I didn't know :( But still had a good score of 91 (-5 for grade 1 lame bites!) & We NEED more GROUP rides - she does awesome alone but is learning how to handle groups & being passed.

    Took Marlene & her new horse on their 1st outing away from home & we rode Cottonmill with Fran. Marlene's horse was great & loaded! Gave Libby some more group experience... her walk is so big & wonderful it's hard to hold her back, but it's all part of the learning/training process.

    Went back to Cottonmill & tucked behind 2 of Christine's lesson/trail rides - broke away from the 1st one to do a little faster 45 min alone & hit some hills. God save Libby at Indian Cave! But at least we could work on manners of hills; she is great at getting into "mountain gear" going down hills but still likes to rush up them sometimes. Hope to go 1 more time Monday night - then give her the rest of the week off. Sure didn't get in the miles I hoped to, but mental rides are some times just as important. She did great at Brushy Creek so besides hill work; she is in shape. I REALLY want her to do well - she has it in her to be great - it's time for her to prove it. She is capable of a perfect score too, she just needs to keep her mind.

    Got a nice but quick 3.5 on Libby (girl time!), then switched over to Festus, ponied Sheldon, & meet up with my neighbor for a nice 5 something mile ride. Then when I got back home, did some ground work with Sheldon then rode him around the alfalfa field again.

    Got back home after being out of town for Thanksgiving with enough time for 2 short rides. Took Sheldon to the tress out back & did a little deer trailing - he was awesome! Then, even though it was gettign dark, I saddled up Festus & took him for a spin. He was being so good & it was so nice out, I wanted to go 10 more miles!
