    Driving Hours 2018

    Cayuse, you are correct, I was supposed to go to the Spring Fling this weekend. Unfortunately, I had to be a grownup and not go. 😢 I had a huge income tax debt this year, and my real estate taxes took a jump, so I am tax poor. I couldn’t afford to take all the time off work (I work Thursday thru Sunday) and all the expense of going, so I am trying to enjoy driving my boys here at home. It’s just not the same.

    Post your Vehicles!

    Hyper bikes are great fun! Your horse must stand well for getting on and off. I usually have to lift my leg over the shaft with my hand, and sometimes use his rump for stability, because I have bad hips. Once I am on, it is a great, comfy ride. If you ever get a chance, give it a try! Hyper bikers love to share!

    I'm going on an adventure

    Jeannie you are living my dream! We have talked about moving to NC, but I really don't think it will ever happen. I am so glad you are settled in and enjoying yourself! I would love to see photos.

    Both have advantages. I like beta because I don't like to spend time cleaning leather. I have shown in my beta harnesses, but I don't do fancy turnout classes. Lately I only trail drive, so beta is the best choice for me. Nothing smells like well conditioned leather.

    Winter has returned to Illinois. Very little ambition to drive in the cold, damp, windy weather. Butch Cassidy 55 mins Sundance Kid 50 mins

    I had mine custom made in black beta from Nifty Tack.com (also on Facebook). Under $50 if I remember correctly. She also does leather and nylon.

    How to measure cart for leg room?

    If you are happy with everything else about the Kingston, perhaps a less expensive and easier option to buying a new cart would be to add a wedge to your seat. This would open up your hip angle a bit, and give you a more secure seat. Google “carriage wedge seat” for some examples.

    Our weather has reverted back to winter - upper30s and low 40s and damp and blustery. It’s going to be a struggle to get them conditioned for the National Drive Spring Fling Butch Cassidy 45 mins Sundance Kid 45 mins

    Woohoo! I finally got the boys hitched as a pair Sunday. New-to-me Eurocollars and harness required lots of tweaking. Almost as much fiddling as actual driving, but I think we finally got it pretty good. I think I lost all my videos and photos from my phone Sundance Kid and Butch Cassidy 45 mins

    Sundance Kid will be 25 this August. He is a chocolate silver dapple, so he sheds out Hershey brown. He has always had a grey beard, but in the last few years he’s gotten more grey on his face.

    Another breezy spring day. Sundance Kid and I went out with April leading Raina on Booboo, and Lizzy and Allison on their bikes. Through the subdivision with a stop to visit our friend Mary and her two girls. I love how bikes whizzing by doesnt even cause an ear flick. Sundance Kid 75mins
