Got it made in the shade

I decided to update my helmet bandanas.  In the summer, I like to put a bandana on my riding helmet to keep the sun off of my neck.

Thought I’d show how I do it.  It’s really quite simple, and something I’ve been doing for over a decade, though haven’t been using bandanas a lot on the last couple of years.

To start with making a bandana shade cover for your helmet you need

More useful items for those long trips with horses in tow!

Here are a few more useful things. The first thing is just inside the trailer LQ door – levels to tell me if I am level when I park.  If I am not level enough, sometimes the fridge doesn’t want to work.  I have two mounted so that I can see if I am level both side to side and front to back.  These can be placed outside for even easier viewing too.  I

More useful things, for endurance riders & horse owners!

Here are a few more items that are useful to have, either around the barn at home or to take along when traveling with horses.  The first thing is the 80# size Vittles Vault feed storage containers.  These things are great!  I am able to store two bags of horse feed in each container.  Even tho the size says 80#, I often put in two 50# bags of feed in them.

You can order

Useful stuff to have if you are an endurance rider

I think I may have to do a few posts on this topic.  There are so  many things that can be useful for us, when we travel to rides and to make our lives easier and help our horses out.

I think I’ll start off by talking about some of the products and items that I have used for some time and that I am comfortable with saying “work really well”.  It can take

Cuyama Oaks XP 2011 Ride Photos

This is a mix of photos (at bottom of this post) from before the ride and during the ride.  There are trail marking photos as well as photos from all three days of the actual Cuyama ride.

The week before the scheduled date of the Cuyama ride, it rained…and rained, and rained!  Fortunately we were able to reschedule the ride to the following weekend.

Had we not been able to reschedule we would have

My hoof boot gluing kit

I’ve been making lots of lists lately.  Lists of what is in my tack room, what is in the rest of my trailer….my tack, etc.

It’s been good because I’ve been able to go through everything and get things fixed and repaired.  It’s so easy to ignore the small things that need to be done when there is always something else seemingly more important to get done.

I’ve made a new category called “Karen’s

Renee and Bee Norris

Lots of nice singletrack trail!

I’m finally getting around to posting photos from some of the last rides.  These are from the Bar H ride which was March 12, and 13, 2011 at the Bar H Ranch in Perris, CA.

Results from both days of the ride can be found on the Sunrise Ranch Rides website here. Turnout was quite good this year with 33 riders in

Catching up, been riding!

It’s been a crazy fun month with all that I’ve had going on.  Obviously, I haven’t had time to do much blogging but did manage to get an occasional comment or photo posted on FB.

Had a really great trip going down early and helping with the Bar H ride.  I rode Chief and Bo each one day there.  From there I stayed at the Bar H for a few days before heading over
