Happy 2014! The annual summary for riding at TerraOasis farm.
I rode less this year, and gave up tracking days off. I just did not keep up with that extra tally, and since Suzy did the tallying in the truck while we were driving to Southern Pines, NC, I said to forget it.
After 8 years of tracking rides, I’m up to 3819 rides. Yikes, 8 years? OK, I definitely created a habit back in 2006 when I took that gift calendar from a neighborhood gift exchange and put it to use in the barn to track my goal of riding an average of once a day in 2006 (365 rides a year).
The Riders at TerraOasis

*Weekly averages are using the number of weeks riding in the barn.
There were a handful of guests and helpers who rode as well, but I only tallied them into the horse counts.
For 2013 on the horses, we had a lot of turnover, and not all happy. Romeo died in March, I still get teary when I think of him. GQ also died in March, then Tanqueray sold (yay!) to a lovely foxhunting home up in Maryland. He found the best home ever! Then Suzy got Harry in April, he is an OTTB from Charles Town, WV.

Last year, I power washed the barn. This year, Suzy (with Harry) and I (with Neuf) went to Southern Pines, NC for some jumping lessons. A great start to the new year!
