Find Your Adventure: Riding in the Rose Parade 2016

Kayla with Bo; Karen with Chief.

I left off in the last post with us riding up the freeway off ramp to go into our staging area.  After a week of festivities and months of planning and preparing, the time was finally here.  The actual getting to ride in the Rose Parade!

We got into the staging area, where the horses peed.  We dismounted and got our boutonniere’s on and shed our jackets.

My latest science experiment

There are so many things having to do with endurance riding that you just simply can’t make up.  One of my favorite sayings is “you can’t make this shit up”.  A good fiction writer might be able to pen some of the things that we’ve encountered on our many adventures, though the actual events are often not something that you could think up, dream up, or even imagine.  This is one of them.

Managing my endurance horse Bo post colic surgery

Bo two weeks post colic surgery, April 2014. He regained his weight rapidly.

I’ve only made a few small changes to how I manage Bo on a day to day basis after his colic surgery in April.  While the veterinarians and surgeon were not able to come up with a reason for the cause of Bo’s colic it was suspicious that the morning he went off of his feed (he was still eating,

Wild West Endurance Ride 2014

I know I haven’t blogged for a long time.  Bo colicked on April 9th and needed to have surgery for a 180 degree twist.  It was a bit of a roller coaster ride, to put it lightly.  We were very lucky that the surgery was able to correct the problem in what turned out to be a fairly uncomplicated and successful surgery.  It

Endurance Day on Horses in the Morning

I never thought I’d be co-hosting a radio show about endurance riding.  Not only that, but I had to get up by around 5 a.m. in order to do it, since the show is a morning show based on the east coast.  I rarely get up that early unless it is to RIDE a horse.  This was fun though, and if I’m not riding at least I was able to TALK about horses and

2013 NASTR 75

This was a really nice ride.  The weather was terrific, and the NASTR club did a really good job overall with it.

The trail was marked well, they had plenty of water on the trail, plenty of room in camp, good food, nice awards, excellent ride vets, and friendly volunteers.

This was a good test for Bo to see if I felt confident enough to mail in his entry for Tevis.  We did the
