July 29th Leaderboard Update

With the weather so nice in most places, I had a lot of miles to record.  Ya'll are keeping me very busy :-)  We have three teams with over 1000 miles!  Congrats to Team 51 with 1136 miles!

I rode a lot of miles this week, but I also got out and helped trim over-grown trails and plan on doing that again during a Wednesday ride with friends.  I would like to encourage you all to take the time to volunteer to help keep horse trails cleared and trimmed.  We all need to give back to keep receiving.  For those of you who already volunteer....THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

July 22nd Leaderboard Update

Congrats to Team 51 Crazy Horse for leading the way this week.  

One of the ultimate trail riding "races" happened this past weekend.  It is the Tevis Endurance Race.  http://www.teviscup.org/  It is a race of 100 miles within 24 hours.  The winner came in at 16.57 hours on a horse that looked like he could go another 100 miles.  WOW is all I can say!  While he was riding his 100 miles on Saturday, I was enjoying a 10 mile ride with friends.  I'm sure I enjoyed my ride just as much as he enjoyed his :-)  All of us in the Derby Race, may not be doing a 100 mile riding day, but we sure enjoy our days of riding; be it 1 mile or 10.  This week looks good for riding with some nicer weather, so enjoy it while you can. 

 Happy trails :-)

July 15th Leaderboard Update

This is the mid point of July and there has been alot of riding being done even with the heat and humidity.  I have started to get up early and ride before it gets to hot and have heard from other DD riders they are doing the same.  Gotta get those ride miles in somehow :-)  We now have 2 Teams over 1000 miles and another one close on their heels.

July 8 Leaderboard Update

First week of July Leaderboard Update.  Wow, the weather has been all over the place lately.  Sure have had alot of vacation miles logged recently.  Some really nice places that I sure want to ride at someday.  Coming into that "it's too hot and humid  to ride" days, so if you do ride be sure to have lots of water for both you and your horse.

Here we are at the end of the first 6 months of the DD2013.  Nice that it ended on the day I do the update huh :-)  Here is some totals for you to think about.  So far as a group YTD we have ridden 21,457.42 and for June alone we rode 4,983.67 miles.
WOW almost 5,000 miles with 102 teams.  That is mind boggling!

Congrats to Team 51 Crazy Horse for leading the group this week!
