Team 41 – Juanita






I am Juanita and was in the Derby in 2012.  It was the best for my home stress the first 8 months of the year.  We show reining horses and the one in the pic, I have qualified for the world several times.  She has now been sold and we will be starting a new one this year.  

Horses are not my life; my husband is.  They are just the icing on the cake.  We have broke many horses in the past and sold trail riding horses that we raised, broke and trained.  I have hit an age marker now where it makes more common sense to not to that presently.

  2. 0.42 miles today on Meme's great horse Chip. He and I decided oats for him and hot dogs for me was a better idea. The rest of the folks got a taste of what we had been doing and decided that all the folks who rode the last week of 2012 derby had to be a lil off.

  15. 3.54 miles, rode Dakota in the outdoor arena while Chips foot was soaking and he was getting oatmeal cookies, MTD 80.25, man is the weather better than this weekend when Shelley and I were out riding. i feel good but can not quite coughing. It is suppose to be great tomorrow. Just remembered to plug in my camera, it was dead as a door knob on Sunday, forcing me to try the ipad when i got in, lol

    ReplyDelete
  16. And how did that Ipad work out for you Miss Techie? :)
    Class went really well today. So far...so good. I think I'm officially certified in CPR as of today.

    ReplyDelete
  17. 2.45 Miles MTD 82.70. The ipad is better Kally but only because I was stuck in the hospital and it was forced upon me.

  18. 6.25 miles what great weather. MTD 88.95 It was the best ride of the year so far, slow, and relaxed and I really needed that.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  20. 2.45miles today, MTD 100.22 Rode lil fatty, she was the only one that didn't get knocked out by the vet for teeth today. My only goal was to make 100 before the end of the month. Mud, mud, mud, cinch was a mess, but made the goal. May ride tomorrow with Shelley, but short on horses today.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Miss you too! But we had an awesome airway lab...learned how to shove adjuncts up peoples noses or in the mouth/throat. To save someone's life of course...

  22. 7.14 miles, MTD 107.36, rode with meth lab today, shelley was out of town and meme is working tons and going to school lots. The temps were so nice, lil wind but not bad and meth lab should let me do my evening exercises with assist, since she is tired.

    ReplyDelete
  23. 8.24 miles MTD 115.60 It was so greasy out there, melted on top and rock hard just underneath, I am never going to hit ten miles in one day at this rate. Bad weather tomorrow, but this is ok I plan on riding in the indoor anyway to get ready for the reining. It is such a different type of riding.

    ReplyDelete
  24. 7.82 miles MTD 123.42 same as yesterday Greasy, greasy, rode in the arena like a reiner just to start getting ready, cross your fingers, I want to go to go to the world. Only rode one in the arena, may do more tomorrow my goal this year is the AQHA world. rode three horses today. I rode Ray's horse to unteach him to trot so fast, it is the least I can do after I taught him to go like a rocket for the last ten days of of the derby last year. He was my arena horse today.Ray deserves the best, lol

    ReplyDelete
  25. Awesome that you are heading for world reining! Nice of you to redo Ray's horse LOL.

  26. 7.84 miles outdoors, MTD 131.26, rode horses in the arena, sad the miles don't count in there, darn, well have to ride like a reiner so can't have it all, lol. thanks diane, my aim is the worlld.

    1. Why would you say that the miles ridden in an area don't count? If you can GPS it they count.

  27. I think Juanita means that her GPS doesn't work indoors, so she can't count them.

    1. Oh, ok. I knew she had issues with it working indoors last year. I've found that if I get my GPS going outside it keeps working in the indoor arena. Then all I have to do is reset it to zero to start riding. (Depends on which part of the barn I'm in though. Thankfully I don't ride in the alley and that's where it does not work most frequently.) Sad to lose any miles but then again, it's just a game. :-D

  28. 6.71 miles today with Meme and shelley. MTD 137.98. I don't even carry my GPS inside anymore. I have dropped it so many times. It only works inside if both end doors are open and the sun is shining and I mean it. I found last year if I could carry it in my hand so clothes didn't cover it up it would work, but then lost the point of training in the arena, which is why I just don't even bother anymore. Slick Slick out, rode Ray's horse out so a slow ride to any where, but have to re teach him to be the china carrier that he was.

    ReplyDelete
  29. 1.08 miles MTD 139.06 Three of us started out and the sleet came down and we ended up riding iin the arena for the entire time. Jessica Vallery met up in the arena and she was jumping barrels. Meme, shelley and edie were all riding in the arena with Jess. It was fun and the back to the house for soup and a big glass of wine, lol.

  30. 6.26 miles with Shelley,MTD 145.31. the weather was perfect. Got to ride the reiners this morning, what an emotional lift after getting off of those two. I was like floating with no reins and just going where ever I looked.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hey Juanita, Has it been cold and yucky there, it sure has been here, I have not been able to ride as much as last week. I had to a couple of days as we had to bring cows up to vaccinate and sort, but burrrrrrr, its cold.

  33. Ok, Jim came out and got it fixed but thanks to Shelley who posted my miles from yesterday while we were having tech problems. Between Jim, Tyler , and Jessica they may all be fixed

  34. 6.38 miles MTD 160.34 last ride out before the blizzard, my feet were freezing, didn't wear two pairs of wool socks like I usually do when it is cold.

    ReplyDelete
  35. 5.17 miles, MTD 165.51 Such a fun ride in the snow with meth lab. the snowmobiles were out. Ray's horse was a trooper and just ignored them, meth lab chased them and got really tired, yeah. Ran into a very brave coyote, certain it was the Shelley and I ran into, but today meth lab was in full blown season, so off we ran to chase him away before, meth lab could keep up.

    ReplyDelete
  36. 8.12 miles MTD 173.83. What a great ride in the snow with Shelley and Edie. No wind the sun was out for the most part, Jack had a lil fit, but Shelley now has the tools to fix those and good for her.

    ReplyDelete
  37. 4'68 milses MTD 178.51 I was nicer this morning than it was this afternoon, so glad I decided to ride then. I went and did errands with Ray and then went out and rode the reindeers, butterflies, so much fun. Ray loves to watch me ride them. I took a camera and put it in the car first thing this morning so i would not forget, then forgot to bring it into the place, dumbbell me.

    ReplyDelete
  38. 7.26 miles MTD 185. 77 rode out this morning, frankly have ridden out or in most of the day just now came in. Meth lab is getting stronger and stronger about keeping up at a fast trot and when I ride alone that is what we do. Rode Ray's horse in the arena to decide if another saddle was going to the sale in April, but was able to get the stirrups short enough for me so that lovely handmade saddle stays, Tif was correct don't let the last one go to nice to sell.

    ReplyDelete
  39. In the last posting you had me at 185.57 my math has me at 185.77
    6.41 miles MTD 192.18 Rode with Shelley and the wind was howling, cold, cold, but so needed it

    ReplyDelete
  40. 4.16 miles MTD 196.34 Didn't even let meth lab go this morning so I didn't have to mess with her. I rode horses all day and I mean all day. It was the best, again to bad the gps doesn't work inside. Cat is feeling better and what spins we had. Dakota, who I rode in the derby got a lil excited because I forgot to take off my spurs and gave her a pretty big shot, oh well, suck it up baby.

    2. I am cheering the endurance riders on this year, truly. It is more fun than you know to watch the new folks take off. I am short one horse this month, that is my excuse and I am sticking with it.

    3. The weather has cooperated with us also, I am not an endurance rider, always wanted to try it though, I have not ever ridden this much this time of year. I know when we start putting up hay I will be riding a tractor more than my horses, so have to ride as much as I can now. :)

  43. 3.64 miles MTD 206.82 I think I might have been the smart one, riding inside with Sue yesterday instead of outside. The temps were much better today. Took the puppy and now I have a muddy mess. Rode just enough to get her tired, so her training would go better.

  44. 6.56 miles, MTD 213.38 Slick, but fun, rode lil fatty out and then rode Lena and fatty in, hope tomorrow it is dryer, The weather could not have been better.

  45. 4.15 miles MTD 217.53 rode slow down the road with Shelley, the fields were to muddy and slick. The horses both had just been trimmed, might have been the slowest miles I ever got, but man did I need to be out for my mental health.

    ReplyDelete

  48. 5.72 miles this morning. MTD 223.25 I needed this so badly, muddy on the road but no traffic. I may ride again this afternoon with Shelley, but not certain I will make it since meth lab jumped on me and two and couldn't go back to sleep.

Rode with Shelley, Stacy Perkins new to me and so nice, and nina nina, They asked me if I wanted a beer and I said only if it was a Corona and they had it. Ray always bought me one case a year and I drank the last one May 3rd and never plan on buying it myself, warmed my heart that they thought of it.

    ReplyDelete
  93. truly walked up to the outdoor arena, while the girls rode tonight, only two of our own horses here now, so grandma didn't make any miles tonight, but it was fun to help the girls for over two hours, maybe more fun than riding.

Finally riding ours with a real bit and one hand, cantered circle after circle at a fast speed over and over until she quick picking up her pace in the middle and kept her head down where it should be.

Before she leaves tomorrow, she wants to get up early so she can ride up there by herself again, I am getting tired, lol. MTD487.07

  99. 3.11 miles MTD 490.18 I am so sick of pony saddles at this point, but it was fun to see her enjoy it so much and am so grateful, Ray mounted us up with the best, so kids could ride along and have safe fun.

    ReplyDelete
  100. 3.02 miles leading the boys, round and round this afternoon, way to hot to ride inside. MTD 493.20. The lil guys had to share the same horse and I rode fatso. I swear, I have seen that pony saddle over and over for the last week, even Lena is starting to get passive aggressive behavior from the cute kids that can't ride, speaks well for her. I will jump on her tomorrow myself and we will have a re education time.

    ReplyDelete
  101. 8.16 miles down the slow road with Lena. MTD 501.36. She needed good ride time after all the kids the last few weeks. Got sprinkled on, wish it would have been a downpour.

  113. 2.11 miles, MTD 567.53 not as hot today at the show, I have decided why my GPS picks up less miles. I carry it in my BRA, so the pommel bag doesn't interfere with the reining horses, and over time the sweat has mess it up. Even the sock I put it in is soaked, that is my story and I am sticking to it, lol

  115. 6.82 miles MTD 582.23 Got to ride 3 reiners this morning, all at high speed. Trainer had them saddled and waiting when I got there. I got to ride Georgie, Top Sail Whiz stud of Bob Loomis's brother Ed, that was a real treat. The best broke and trained horse I have ever ridden. Almost got me excited about riding again. The trainer wanted me to ride him so that I will see where Cat we be shortly and that I am doing Ok with his program, my horse isn't quite finished yet.

  145. Juanita,

    Stopped at your blog to see if I could help you, wasn't certain why you asked about my GPS as I am a newbie & lots has been posted by others far more knowledgeable than me about options?

    But it doesn't look like you need any help given you were last year's Distance Derby Winner! Congrats!

    Anyhow, you seemed to run into the same adding challenges as I did early on which is why I decided just to round down to nearest whole number, way less of a headache for our busy lives. And it looks like you learned that the fancy stuff is often waaaaay more confusing. There are lots of simple free apps that work well. I just stuck with what I used from my triathlon days. So good luck to you & happy trails!

  147. 3.68 miles MTD 790 94 buzzed around the pasture with meth lab and checked fence, so much colder than yesterday. Only thing left to do outside today is move a hay feeder and let the horses out after I fed them.

  170. 5.27 miles MTD 897.29 what a great day if I didn't have to come in to clean up for the ball game I would have ridden 15 darn it. Started with heather and then ended up by myself.

    ReplyDelete
  171. 8.58 miles MTD 905.87, rode round and round our place with Heather on Lena to get the dogs tired, then headed out across to the cornfields and Shelley showed up, rode back and forth until she was ready, rode with her until we had to cross the road , then Heather and I headed back a different way. Beautiful day. Heathers horse is now over at the trainer, so Lena was on loan. Thought I had one more day in the month since I planned on hitting 900 in November but that didn't happen.

  173. 7.39 miles MTD 913.26 Rode with Sandy today a nurse I used to work with years and years ago. She hasn't rode for ten years, since her horse died. She is going to be sore tomorrow, lol. She is looking for a horse now SHORT, because she is, she came to ride, to get her riding legs back again. Thanks Diane maybe I will make my goal by the end of this month, or not.

    ReplyDelete
  174. 6.72 miles, colder than yesterday because of the breeze, MTD 919.98, after yesterday, Sandy has two horses on the horizon , a retired reiner and a fab looking trail horse, We may have to have that Jessica Vallery ride it, since it is in Ill.

    ReplyDelete
  175. 5.82 miles, MTD 925.80 Rode the race track .70 one way and depends on where you turn about the same. so very sad, but just kept thinking Ray would be there when I came back. The end was sad but funny, have new people that live next door, they have free ranging chickens. I told them, I love them but the dogs would get them. When we were coming in a rooster was in the cornfield and meth lab took off with lumpy dump Icon in hot pursuit. Well, she ended up with her first rooster, I feel bad, but that will happen when you let them roam and you have had it explained to you.

    ReplyDelete
  176. 3.67miles not many today hunters, MTD 929.47 hopefully a few more tomorrow.
