Aere We STILL Having Fun???

Boy does my Shanna Lady Rose have a WHOA !!! This picture was from a Pony Cousin Rodeo and the 1st time I had ever took Lady full out to bring it home and SHE loved it! gotta be able to stop what you start and Lady has this very bumpy, rough stop and as you can see it caught me off guard and almost out of the saddle ;)))
What fun we had and I still LOVE my girl and STILL have to bounce to stop when bringing it home! This brings me to the purpose of this post. Blogging...I had so must fun planning and writing each post and really tried to keep them about the love and humor of my family and cowgirl life. I have enjoyed getting to know all of my blog friends and reading their stories. I have been able to read about my Pony Cousins adventures that did not include me, although without me, it could not have been too fun ;))) But now I find that blogging seems to take more work than reward and have decided to take that blogging vacation that so many of my friends have done from time to time. It is time for me to WHOA ;)

I of course will still check in with blogs from time to time and try to keep caught up with you all! I will miss you and of course Shanna Lady Rose, Jesse and I...
              Wish you happy and safe trails!

Oregon Experience: Pacific Crest Trail: A Ride to Remember

Don and June Mulford share adventures along the Pacific Crest Trail in 1959.

I may have to rethink my goal of how many segments I can ride in 20 years ;)))

For My Sissy Cowgirljlynn and her KING!

My sister Cowgirljlynn just posted that her boy King turned 27 years young yesterday! I love the King and would have added him to my stables if I could have. Instead...the next best thing happened and the King is still in my family!
For my Sissy and her King!

Lizzy Rose Ride Again!!!

You all saw...(I hope) my Christmas post with Lizzy Rose riding Jesse! Well...I found a new way for Lizzy to ride Jesse with me that will be much safer for her at this years Cowboy Christmas at the NFR in Las Vegas. I watched the video on this new product and bought one hoping it would work for Jesse, Lizzy and me!!!
Woo works!
The following video was takern by a young wrangler at my desert stables and I forgot to mention to him not to turn the camera! Sorry you have to look sideways :((( you ALL know, Jesse will do ANYTHING I ask him to do! And so will Lady...within reason ;) I suspect, she will see no REASON in that "puppy basket" should be attached to HER saddle horn. Anyone out there wanna take those odds???
Happy Trails!
Your Desert Rose!

Team Pole Bending ???

This past week my desert riding group had it's annual play day. Depending on who is running the play day, it can get extremely technical or extremely fun! This year was extremely fun :)))
 After a less than usual number of competitors we had time for 2 more events and one of them was...Team Pole Bending! Now who has ever heard of that??? got to pick a partner and I was lucky enough to partner up with cowgirl E, the groups usual 1st place eventor! And yes...we won:))) I did have to caution Jesse that this was not a race and that the winner would receive apples and carrots ;)))
Fortunately Jesse and "Hoss" knew each other well so we did not have any huge issues and in fact we WON this very unusual event!
Thanks to cowgirl E and Hoss...we have another Beer Mug trophy to add to our growing collection!
Yee Haw!!!
Your Desert Rose!
