This morning we picked 5 fit horses and trailered out to some gorgeous wide open spaces. The pictures pretty much say it all, but I will say this: it was the fastest 30 miles I’ve ever ridden in my life on absolutely unfrickin-believably fit horses! Our moving time was about 3 1/2 hours and most of that was at a canter. The horses never flagged but I sure did! Luckily I had worn my ankle brace and put my stirrups up a notch but I was pretty well spent by the last few miles. It was an amazing experience to ride a horse of that caliber at the speed but PHEW, I don’t know how D &C do that for 50+ miles! Impressive.
