On the weekend was the Raglan endurance ride which we went to with two very special ponies on board, our gelding Pioneer Park Talieb and mare Castlebar Nariel. It was Nariel’s first ever endurance ride so Daniel and I were super excited! Nariel and Talieb were entered into the 20kms on Saturday and Talieb was entered into the 40kms Sunday. We got to ride base early with plenty on time to set up camp and settle the horses in before the 1.15 ride start. Daniel my fiancé was riding Nariel (who he broke in) and Tracey was riding Talieb. 
The pre ride talk was mounted so all the 39 riders met at the front gate to listen to their instruction. Not knowing how Nariel was going to cope with this situation I was a bit nervous, but all she could worry about was eating grass! Talieb who was meant to be baby sitting and who has done this a number of times before was more anxious than her! I swear, that mare cant be a purebred arab!!!!! She’s just TOO chilled! haha We often joke that there must of been a quarter horse stallion who jumped the fence at Castlebar because she’s more quarter horse than arab!!! The riders set off and I was left back at camp to wait……which is the worst EVER!! I didn’t know what to do with myself! Its so much better riding than staying back at camp worrying and anticipating! 

When they returned Tracey and Daniel were both smiling ear to ear so I knew it must of been a good ride! I collected their logbooks while Trace and Dan took the horses back to camp to strap. There wasn’t much strapping to be done so they had a bit of a clean up and vetted through straight away! All good and both horses through! YAY Nariel survived her first endurance ride (and so did her mum and dad)

After the excitement of that I met up with my good friend Nicky who had arrived with her two horses, Zharion, who I rode in the last two Quilties and Doug who I was riding on Sunday in the 80kms. We got the two boys vetted through and took them for a short ride to stretch their legs! 
The 80kms started at 5am Sunday morning, and after about an hour of confusion due to the daylight savings time changing we finally figured out what time we would need to set our alarms for! 

Nic and I headed off in the dark of the night. The ride was very challenging due to the amount of steep hill in it. Luckily Nickys horses are trained in the steep hills of the Bunyip State Forest! Even still we rode the horses up the hills but got off and ran them down. Nicky is a very good runner….and I am not…. but the adrenaline of running through the bush in the dark with fit horses all around me kept me going. My legs were like jelly but that didn’t matter, all that matters was we were looking after the horses. 
We arrived back after the first leg just as the sun was coming up and vetted through the horses with no problems. The second leg was the much easier leg of the two which was good for the horses as the weather was starting to heat up. About 10kms into the second leg I saw some of the 40km riders heading out! I was so excited at the thought I would see Talieb and Tracey riding along! A few horses past and I still couldn’t see them….then I spotted Talieb!! But Tracey wasn’t on board….Daniel was!!! I screamed WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON MY HORSE and he was fist pumping the air with a big smile on his face…. Daniel and Tracey had decided that if it was going to be hilly that Daniel would be better off riding Talieb as he could get off and run Talieb up and down the hills where as Tracey couldn’t with her asthma! A smart move from them but I did think it was going to be a huge challenge for Talieb carrying Daniels weight and heavier saddle! All I could think was ‘I wish I had of got Talieb clipped’ because it was heating up! 
I needn’t not stress as Talieb totally blitzed it!!!! I was SO proud. 60kms over 2 days for Talieb and he looked fantastic! Daniel said he was a breeze to ride and felt fit and strong! YAY!

Nicky and I also went extremely well placing =1st lightweight! We couldn’t of been more proud of the two boys once again, trying their butts off for us! 


It was a fantastic weekend and a challenging but great ride. Excellent underfoot and the most beautiful scenery you could imagine! However I am struggling to walk. I am RIDE fit but certainly not RUN fit! I had an epsom salt bath and rubbed deep heat into my legs but nothing is working!!! I really need to start training myself as well as my horses!

She’s just TOO chilled! haha We often joke that there must of been a quarter horse stallion who jumped the fence at Castlebar because she’s more quarter horse than arab!!! The riders set off and I was left back at camp to wait……which is the worst EVER!! I didn’t know what to do with myself! Its so much better riding than staying back at camp worrying and anticipating! 

When they returned Tracey and Daniel were both smiling ear to ear so I knew it must of been a good ride! I collected their logbooks while Trace and Dan took the horses back to camp to strap. There wasn’t much strapping to be done so they had a bit of a clean up and vetted through straight away! All good and both horses through! YAY Nariel survived her first endurance ride (and so did her mum and dad)

After the excitement of that I met up with my good friend Nicky who had arrived with her two horses, Zharion, who I rode in the last two Quilties and Doug who I was riding on Sunday in the 80kms. We got the two boys vetted through and took them for a short ride to stretch their legs! 
The 80kms started at 5am Sunday morning, and after about an hour of confusion due to the daylight savings time changing we finally figured out what time we would need to set our alarms for! 

Nic and I headed off in the dark of the night. The ride was very challenging due to the amount of steep hill in it. Luckily Nickys horses are trained in the steep hills of the Bunyip State Forest! Even still we rode the horses up the hills but got off and ran them down. Nicky is a very good runner….and I am not…. but the adrenaline of running through the bush in the dark with fit horses all around me kept me going. My legs were like jelly but that didn’t matter, all that matters was we were looking after the horses. 
We arrived back after the first leg just as the sun was coming up and vetted through the horses with no problems. The second leg was the much easier leg of the two which was good for the horses as the weather was starting to heat up. About 10kms into the second leg I saw some of the 40km riders heading out! I was so excited at the thought I would see Talieb and Tracey riding along! A few horses past and I still couldn’t see them….then I spotted Talieb!! But Tracey wasn’t on board….Daniel was!!! I screamed WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON MY HORSE and he was fist pumping the air with a big smile on his face…. Daniel and Tracey had decided that if it was going to be hilly that Daniel would be better off riding Talieb as he could get off and run Talieb up and down the hills where as Tracey couldn’t with her asthma! A smart move from them but I did think it was going to be a huge challenge for Talieb carrying Daniels weight and heavier saddle! All I could think was ‘I wish I had of got Talieb clipped’ because it was heating up! 
I needn’t not stress as Talieb totally blitzed it!!!! I was SO proud. 60kms over 2 days for Talieb and he looked fantastic! Daniel said he was a breeze to ride and felt fit and strong! YAY!

Nicky and I also went extremely well placing =1st lightweight! We couldn’t of been more proud of the two boys once again, trying their butts off for us! 


It was a fantastic weekend and a challenging but great ride. Excellent underfoot and the most beautiful scenery you could imagine! However I am struggling to walk. I am RIDE fit but certainly not RUN fit! I had an epsom salt bath and rubbed deep heat into my legs but nothing is working!!! I really need to start training myself as well as my horses!

On the weekend was the Raglan endurance ride which we went to with two very special ponies on board, our gelding Pioneer Park Talieb and mare Castlebar Nariel. It was Nariel’s first ever endurance ride so Daniel and I were super excited! Nariel and Talieb were entered into the 20kms on Saturday and Talieb was entered into the 40kms Sunday. We got to ride base early with plenty on time to set up camp and settle the horses in before the 1.15 ride start. Daniel my fiancé was riding Nariel (who he broke in) and Tracey was riding Talieb. 
The pre ride talk was mounted so all the 39 riders met at the front gate to listen to their instruction. Not knowing how Nariel was going to cope with this situation I was a bit nervous, but all she could worry about was eating grass!

Landsborough Endurance ride March 2014

The 2014 Victorian endurance season has officially begun with the first ride of the season at Landsborough. On Saturday there was a 20km ride and Sunday 20,40 and 80km’s.

The weather was hot but the track was a nice flat to undulating course which made it a great first ride of the season. The scenery was stunning and there was lots of wildlife to be spotted along the way! 

Everyone was excited to be back in the saddle, and the horses seemed to love it too! There was a lot of whinnying through the night, no doubt horses and humans had a lot to catch up on!

The 80km riders set out at 5am to beat some of the days heat followed by the 40kms at 7am.
I was there doing 40kms on my boy Pioneer Park Talieb. It was his 3rd 40km ride and his first time at a ride on his own and handled it very well! Although he did paw a hole almost to china in his yard he just wanted to get out there and ride!
I was very glad I was riding a barefoot booted horse. It was very rocky in parts of the ride but Talieb handled it well with his gloves on! We completed the 40kms in 3hr 15 mins with good HR’s and all A’s.

All in all it was a very hot but fun start to the season! I’m looking forward to the next one at Raglan where I’ll be doing the 80kms on one of Nicola Robinson’s horses, then hopefully getting my boy Talieb into the 80kms!

This horse is my world. Words can’t explain how much I am in love with him. My heart is so full every time I see him. He loves to cuddle and kiss, I am the luckiest girl in the world! I’ve had the biggest, longest week at work and haven’t seen him in 10 days until today. I’m so blessed to have him in my life! Horses are so good for the soul!
