Black Friday Ride or "Ride or Shop" No Brainer

Thanksgiving was great and all, but Friday was awesome!  Black Friday the day when some people get crazy with shopping and spending money, but others would rather spend time with their horses and friends. The Third annual Black Friday ride at Branched Oak was a beautiful day with fluffy white clouds, almost no wind and temps in the high 50's!  Perfect.  We rode about 8 miles and when we got back to the trailers we had chili and cinnamon rolls.  Yummmmm.  I hope ya'll got a chance to spend time with your horses this Thanksgiving weekend, as we are all thankful we have our 4 legged friends and 2 legged friends.

November 18th Leaderboard Update

November 18th, only 6 weeks to go, so get out there and ride :-)  This past weekend was beautiful with great weather here, but I didn't ride at all.  Nope, instead I went to the Nebraska Horse Expo and had a great time and learned that I sure don't know much about riding.  So my solution.....go out and ride more!  

Seriously though, I have a lot to learn to communicate with my horse correctly.  How about you?

November 11th Leaderboard Update

Here we are down to about 7 weeks left of riding and it is getting colder and less opportunities to ride.  How close are you to your 2013 Derby goal?  I have met and exceeded my goal this year.  I have almost ridden twice as far this year over my best year in Iowa.  I am a very happy rider :-)  We all still have time to get closer to our goals but with the weather you need to be more dedicated or crazy.  You decide which one YOU are :-).
