Team 49 - Kimes*

Hi.  My name is Janette Kimes.  I live in a small town in southeast Nebraska with my honey, Greg, and my two horses.  Cash is a breeding stock paint that is 6 years old.  I have been riding him since he was 2.  I am very proud of him; he is the greatest.  Truck is a 14 year old quarter horse.  Anyone that knows how to get on can ride him; he is not replaceable.  

We like to take them camping and trail ride a lot.  No showing.  Just riding for fun.  

This will be my 2nd year for the Derby.  Last year I rode more than I would have but had a blast.  Maybe this year I will not go so far, but you never know?  I hope to see you on the trails.

  34. I have a story to tell. My Sunday morning ride did not turn out very good ! Cash and I were Galloping on a gravel road{ any one that knows Cash knows he loves to gallop nice and slow and a long ways} I am not sure what he tripped on maybe just stumbled, He went down and went down hard, I bailed and hit the ground on my feet, When Cash got up I was so scared, There was blood running down both legs, and he was shaking, There was blood on his face. I was about 5 miles from home I walked him to the closes house, On Sunday morning no one is home at a Amish house. I know them so I just helped my self to the hose and started cleaning him up. Called Greg for help, It took him about a half hour to get there. I got the blood stopped by that time. You could see the tendons in his legs. So It will be a while till we post any miles. He is doing great, today he galloped out of the pasture when I got home. He loves me as much as I love him.

    1. Holy smokes! I had a sick knot just reading about it. Thankfully you are okay and even tho Cash will take time to heal physically, it sounds like mentally he is ready to get back on the trails. Sounds like the two of you have a very special bond...I love that!

  35. Janette! So glad you both are okay. How scary. After reading about that endurance rider who's horse fell ... and we know about that outcome, I am so glad YOU didn't get hurt!

  36. Oh my, how scary for both of you. Glad you didn't get hurt and sure hope Cash heals quickly!

  37. Glad you are OK! You must be some gymnast, to land on your feet! Keep us updated, even if you aren't posting miles!

  38. It has been one month sence our fall. I have been riding all along, just short to keep him limber. Haven't posted because it wasn't much. We have been riding a lot now. His knees look good not healed but good.Just taking it slower than normal.
