i've just about got my horses in condition for the endurance ride coming up and what happens? Deer hunting season happens. So i'm looking for places to condition. I have a few ideas but anyone else here ride for several hours at a trot and know of a place or be willing to share a "personal" riding spot in exchange for coming my way sometimes? Water on trail would be great. thanks

Patty check out my post about Mt Pillar Trails on the forum page. Maybe this will work for you to prepare your horse for endurance rides.

Patty I have found a new place to park and access the Primm Springs area. I am going to ride there on Tuesday. It would be a good place for you guys but you will have to go at my pace till you learn the route.

I would try April, she is usually the 1st with the tech stuff! Enjoy the WEG, Eva will be crewing for the Swedes and Ed Kidd's horse is being ridden by a Lithuanian. I was planning to go with a friend but we were told we could not park overnight in the lots and had planned to camp in a pop-up on the back of a truck. Then she found out you can't go back in the same day if you leave the venue, or take a folding chair in, so she decided it would not really be that much fun to walk/stand all day-riding at home instead!

ok, leatherwood rd i will remember that. i rode BSF on thursday. i was helping 2 riders new to endurance thru a LD. annie got sick again right before the ride so i took the 19 yr old gelding who would i think have been ok if we rode conservatively but one of my riders fell off in the first mile and quit and the second one really wanted to race so we went fast. actually i let mirage pick the pace and he picked fast but alas at the vet check he had gouged his coronet and was limping and ouchy all over so we pulled. BUT i rode the rest of the trail on the gelding - also mine - that the first rider gave up rode and he did fine. i was happy that we did not ride saturday. i do not like being all wet. i wonder if angie or april or eva have the trails up on google earth maps. going to WEG tomorrow. i hope its worth the trip.

50 to 7 is the worst part of the trail in my opinion! Park at Hwy 7 and head back south to Leatherwood Rd and you can do a nice gravel road loop with hills shade and some water-might be able to see on Google Earth? Porter Branch to the north used to be really nice but now after teh flood has lots of big rock-you can still move out on the dirt parts though and lots of water. I've been rifding at least every weekend. Did you go to BSF? I crewed for a friend Saturday in some nasty weather!

thanks Jackie. have you ridden the trace between 50 and 7 lately? i rode north from 7 and i didnt have much fun. i never learned the roads off the trace but hey, theres always mapquest right? i was hoping someone had a "secret" spot but then if they shared it here it wouldnt be a secret for long would it? you riding any?
