Finishing the last RNT of the season just 2 weeks ago, I returned to my original thoughts on RNT and why I keep coming back to the sport. It’s not too soon to start training for next year! Click the contact us link above to ask about personal online coaching for the runner or rider hoping to try Ride N Tie!
I saw this post the other day, and it got me thinking about my favourite type of running: Ride N Tie. I suppose I could make an “Endurance” one of these too, but to be honest, I am really looking forward to RNT this year… even more than Endurance.
So here goes!
- What a beautiful day for a RNT!
- Here goes, we are over the starting line.
- Time to run really fast, everyone is watching.
- Eek, I hope none of these horses kick.
- Pass me horse, pass me! Why are you going so slow?

- Seriously, horse is passing now? Ok I will hide in these trees over here.
- Ah good, the horses are all gone, I can run freely now
- Or maybe I will walk, I am probably close to my tied horse anyway. Quarter…

March is a tough time of year for getting out riding. I don’t know about you, but by this time, I am no longer excited about the snow and the cold. I find more excuses not to ride than i would have early in the winter, even though I know that now is the time to start ramping up my training. Its just the cold…. I am so sick of it. It has gone on long enough! This year is particularly bad, because we had a brilliant warm snap in February, so going back to temps near -20C feel more like I am jumping into the arctic ocean than looking toward spring.
So what do I do instead? I make my plan for the year! Its a great time to start because it will help me be accountable for the next few weeks while temps remain below 0, but it will also…

Starting around this time last year (end of March), Splash developed headshaking. For those not familiar, this article does a good job of explaining. https://thehorse.com/14095/headshaking-in-horses/ The easiest way to describe it is the equivalent of a migraine in humans. Something triggers the pain and different things affect different horses. Since I am running out of… Continue reading Call for Help! Head Shaking in Horses
*cover photo courtesy of Wendy Webb photography Well, I did have the idea to write a humorous “you might be an endurance rider if” article for you, a la Jeff Foxworthy, but the recent issue of the AERC magazine has me changing the tone. I’ve been humming and hawing about whether or not to renew… Continue reading You Might Be An Endurance Rider if…
