Another 50 in the bag :fistpump:

Just got home from my thrilling yet relaxing weekend. We finished the Sunday 50 at Washoe Valley - 22nd place, IIRC, total time of about 9:40, ride time of 8:25. I was shooting for about 10 hours total, so that's exactly where I wanted to be. Dixie is tired and sound. I am tired, with a bunged up knee from when I got off to lead her down a steep road and slipped on the sand. Cers is just delighted to be home.

I keep alternating between crying and giggling. We did it! She's so amazing. My horse rules. More later.

  5. Brilliant! Can't imagine riding 50 miles in a day, though, seeing as I struggled with 35km ;-)

  15. Always reading! So awesome for you guys; what an accomplishment!! I remember when she was a total spaz.

    I'm going to be honest. I rode for three hours the other day and felt like I was going to die. 10 hours? Woman you are fabulously crazy.
