I have been trying to find information about trail rides, NATRC, AERC, clubs, etc, since we got the horses, but things have REALLY changed while we were away from horses.  This is going to take more digging, but I DO plan to enter an ACTHA ride at Estrella Park in January for sure.
When I visited my mother last year, I made mild fun of her for drinking box wine.  Well, guess what!  I have started drinking box wine myself.  It just sits there in the fridge and waits for you to drink it, with no bottles to recycle, no damn cork to take in and out, and the wine stays fresh tasting.  Arthritis definitely enters into it too, as sometimes it was hard to hold the bottle to pour the wine, and what a mess if you drop and break it.
Bill went over to the neighbors' to play horseshoes the other night so I saddled up and went for a ride by myself (with the dogs of course).  It was hot, sure, but less so the later it got, and all we did was walk with a little trotting.  I enjoyed it, Deva enjoyed it, the dogs enjoyed it.  It is a good thing to ride alone sometimes, good for the horse's attitude and good for mine. 
ALl is good, right?
