I always feel good about the mare drinking her water while we are out and about ..keeping her hydrated on long rides, means choosing trails with natural refreshment along the way.
Have fun peeking into others watery view today, around the world! Please click the title to travel the waterways. Thanks T for hosting this wet and wonderful meme!
"Hacking out should be regarded as especially useful training supplement at all stages of a rider's development. A rider who thinks he has good control of his horse indoors should test himself in similar movements outdoors".....
From "Riding Logic" W. Museler
This said..we ride indoors for the second time this week tomorrow in the largest arena in the area...soo excited!

What the hay you doing back there???!
My poor little 44 year old saddle needs some lovin!
I have resolved to send my little favorite saddle back to it's maker! Hans Biglajzer lives in Bend, Oregon. He did all my D ring additions, knee rolls , extra panel leathers last year...he just forgot to Re flock it! I know his daughter helps him now with the work..he must be 90 or 100 by now! Bless his talented heart!
Drat it all...I got it all taken apart for the second time in two days and the new girth, a 44 incher I just got ,was even too long! ARRRG!!! Taking that back today and getting a 40, I think!

~Others have researched and purchased/ acquired their horse, to find a difficulty in temperament or a physical burden within the animal. Yet, Being dedicated , they have persevered to proudly be in partnership with their horse, lovingly striving for deeper awareness's between them.
For my 200Th POST, I really wanted to follow through with something I have desired to do here in bloggerville, Create an award.
~This is a symbol or an emblem to give away to those we are aware of that have uniquely nurtured and loved the Equine in a special way.
There are not many rules with this award...JUST :
I herby bestow this award to:(and this is hard for me...I need to follow the rules I JUST created and give it to only one)...

I usually take photo's of a fixed object and generally not the huge sky. But this view, one morning last week, took my breath away. It was such a beautiful sunrise over the water of Tillamook Bay.

My very first trial rides were with this group and also my first horse camping trips.
Milo McIver State Park was our destination today. It has 951 acres of lawns and wooded areas open for dogs, bicycles, hikers, campers, rafters, kayakers and equines. It also has a 27 hole "Disc Golf Course" on site, as well!
All in their respective area's.
This is an old Historic farmstead Barn, on the State owned property...they keep it for owls to roost in. The property also has many bat houses with a "bat trail" for those interested.
Another Equestrian group, O.E.T. "Oregon Equestrian Trail riders" does much of the trail maintenance at this park. I plan on joining them this year to volunteer . I ride so many of the wonderful trail systems they service.
