Our first ride is Kettles N Bits, coming up May 2 and 3. We are going with a new endurance friend, and the ride is just over an hour away. These will be entirely new trails for us, which is really exciting. Given our significant drop off on mileage, we will certainly be competing in the 25 mile ride(s); if we're lucky and both feel well, we'll do 25 miles each day Saturday and Sunday. This will be our first time on a trail this year. Honestly, this is not too much different from some previous years and I always anticipate the first competition of the season is really just for conditioning, anyway.
|New shoes today!|

The last photos are the boys on turn out in the outdoor arena after their two weeks stuck in the dry lot while I was gone and had guests. They had plenty of energy to spare!
|So glad Rhio doesn't do THAT under saddle!|
