Diamond Springs Station – Where “What” is Buried

I wrote this in early 2001, printed it out and put it in my binder for the ’01 XP ride and I didn’t see it again for a decade.

My grandmother is now gone, so reading that part was really hard.  Her father (my great grandfather) rode a horse from Oklahoma City to New York and back twice, and from Oklahoma City to San Francisco,

Horse Ride Prep + My Favorite Horse Feed (aka Bo and Chiefy’s favorite feed)

Just back from the feed store, where I picked up a couple of bags of Elk Grove’s Sport Horse Mix.  They had to special order it for me.

Ever since I heard about the Sport Horse Mix I’ve been dying to give it a try. My horses have been on the regular Elk Grove Stable Mix formula for years, and they are thriving on it.  Not only do the horses love it, but it

Ride Report and Photos: Sesenta Anos 2013

I have a weak spot for new rides, or rides that I haven’t been to before that I *could* go to.  That was the case with John Parke’s Sesenta Anos ride that was held November 16 and 17, 2013 near Santa Barbara, CA.

The ride was to celebrate John’s 60th birthday.  It worked out well that I was able to stop in Ventura and visit with my family both coming and going.  And I

End of Ride Season — Almost! Goals Anyone?

It’s almost the end of the 2013 ride season, which has no doubt ended already for many riders.  We are fortunate in the West and PS regions, as there have been rides in November so we’ve been able to keep riding and can do so nearly year around.

Just a reminder for those AERC members and anyone interested in becoming a new member that the 2014 ride season starts on December 1, 2013.  Click

Bryce XP 2013

Had a nice ride at the Bryce ride (aka Paunsaguant XP) – four more days to round out the fall trip to a total of 14 ride days and 700 miles.

Chief and Bo both completed 7 days of the rides–350 miles each, plus each also went out a few days to mark or scout trail.  They both got quite the workout!

We achieved our goals for the season, which was pretty cool –
