Here we go!

Ok, I'm off to the ride! Well, not quite off to the ride yet, but off to start hauling my mounds of crap to the truck, the truck to the trailer, the trailer to the horse, etc.

My husband started laughing uncontrollably when I told him I had actually made a LIST of stuff to take. He knows just how disorganized I really am - this is the equivalent of a control freak saying "Oh, it'll all work out, let's just wing it." But I really do have a list, and I really have used it.

I will try to remember to take some pictures, and hopefully we'll be a smashing success, and I'll post a recap / thank you story when I get back!


  1. Hope you have a great ride. Can't wait to see the pictures.

  2. OMG, YES make a list! At the last distance ride I did, I forgot my saddle pad. My good, perfect saddle pad!! I forgot it in my other trailer & it was like seeing a gaping hole when I opened the tack room 4 hours from home and found it gone. And sure enough, my mare got a sore back the first day. MAKE A LIST! And have fun!

  3. Have a wonderful time!

  4. I hope you have a great ride! Can't wait to hear about it when you get back... take lots of pictures! :)

  5. After 10 years of packing my trailer for distance rides, I still make lists...and we still forget something , especially for the first ride of the year. One year, I forgot my riding tights.

    The trick is to forget something that somebody else remembered, so you can borrow.

    And always know where your towel is <<<----important!

    I know you'll have fun, I can't wait to hear all about it!!!

  6. Good luck! Be safe! Have fun!!! :D

    BeyBey said ditto--she is trying to eat the laptop keys as we speak. ;)

  7. HAHA!! I resemble that other control freak remark! And I have been known to say the other Quote "Oh lets wing it, it'll all work out"....It is my age, it is wayyy too hard trying to control everything anymore! I plan till I'm tired then wing the rest..and it does amazingly-work out!

    So Fund..your "List" is the beginning of great things and more relaxing times to come!
    WOOHOO...cant' wait to hear of your successes and trials and new awareness!!
