Ladies Night #4: Riding to Music

I've been errant on postings.  Life sometimes happens and it pulled me some other directions.  Glad to be back.

Two weeks ago Ladies Night #4 was focused on riding to music.  Each of us had been asked to provide a song for the evening.  It was a lot of fun to hear what each of us had chosen. 

For Bob and I, I'd chosen the song, "You and Tequila" by Kenny Chesney.  It's kinda of a slow song, where one doesn't move much quicker than a trot...just right for Bob and I who haven't gotten our wings yet at the lope.

This warm Ladies Night reminded me of a when I was a teenager.  We used to have sleepovers where we played our favorite songs all night long. 

As with past Ladies Nights, there were a lot of smiles and giggles over songs we'd chosen and those Rachel, our leader, had chosen for us.  No pomp and circumstance with this bunch of ladies.  A true sign of Ladies Night bond are how many of us who sang proudly (and loudly off key) to our favorite songs as we rode.

This Ladies Night found Bob and I a little worn out after almost ten days of hauling some place every other day.  After a few hours of riding this warm night, I found I'd rather stand than sit and I'm sure Bob felt the same.

The Ladies of Night #4:

Since Ladies Night #4 two weeks have passed.  Ladies Night #5 was moved to a drop in trail class.  Bob and I didn't attend, taking some time off from the busy schedule we've had.  However, that hasn't stopped us from having some good rides at home.

Tonight is Ladies Night #6.  We'll be gathering at Fiddleback Ranch to experience their trail class.  Only two more Ladies Nights left after tonight.  I can see such a change in the seasons as darkness comes earlier at each week's gathering.  A sure sign that Fall is on its way.


  1. I have so enjoyed your Ladies Nights. You and Bob make a nice couple :-) I am going to suggest doing a lesson to music....too fun!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. What a fun group you & Bob ride with! I love riding to music, there is something magical about it. Our current trainer rarely plays music in her barn, we've never ridden to it there. I miss it. You can bet if I ever have my own place, there will be music on!!

  3. That sounds like so much fun!! I love the idea of your Ladies Nights. I wish I could find of group of horse people who would be interested in doing that. :) Maybe if I ever get to move back to my home town we can do it at the dressage stable where I used to work/ride/train. That would be so much fun. I can't believe you only have one left! So sad. :) I'm glad you're having so much fun with Bob.
