First endurance ride of 2016 was January 23 at Bumblebee Ranch! It was just fantastic! We rode our best 50-mile completion to date, and we all went home healthy, sound and happy.
We started out just before daybreak and watched a gorgeous sunrise and felt the cool, crisp air on our faces. The horses love the brisk temperatures; it makes them playful, frisky and energetic.
The trails were challenging, but most definitely manageable. We rode with our friend, Andrea and her beautiful mustang, Lily. Our pace was a pretty even 6.7 to 6.8 sometimes 6.9 mph, and all 3 ponies flew through their vet checks with flying colors!
