Today, I decided we’d work on speed rather than distance since I did not have the time to ride more than a couple hours (we had our trainer, Sheri Braun, coming to work with Jakob and Beauty at 1 pm).

We did the “Loop Trail” (named so because it goes in a loop… I know, such an original name). I believe the trail is approximately 2.5-3 miles. I couldn’t let Asali run the entire trail because the footing was bad in some places with the ice and mud. But, when I did let her run, she ran. It was one of those rides where you grab mane, hold on tight, and question why you decided to ride bareback. I was wishing I had goggles because the cold wind in my eyes made me cry.

I think we got the speed part down.

    Hi, Asali. Congratulations on your new web site and your big adventure! As you know we are very much into speed. However our outings only lasted a few minutes. Our endurance now is measured in how much grass and how many Stud Muffins we can eat.

    We will follow your progress and tell our friends to visit your web site. Tell Winnie we said “Hi”.

    Your friends,

    Hello my new friends! I will definitely tell Winnie you all said “Hi.” Keep up the grass eating and send some stud muffins my way!

    Love, Asali
