Washoo Ride This Weekend & Happy 4th Everyone!

Heading over to Washoe State Park for the Washoo 50 tomorrow.  I’m taking Bo!  I am looking forward to trying the new alpaca saddle pad that I got.  It’s beautiful.  I can’t wait to see if it stays as cool on the horse as the Toklat Woolback pads do.

Enjoy this video – it’s from VJ Day, Honolulu Hawaii, August 14, 1945.

Riding in sand, High Desert endurance ride, lucky ride #7

I took this video at the High Desert ride in October.  I rode Bo both days there and this was some of the trail on the second day.  We finished in the top ten that day and were 1st in our weight division, so there aren’t a lot of tracks ahead of us – I would guess after more horses went through it got even more beat up.
