You Might Be An Endurance Rider if…

*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…

Why Haven’t You Tried This Yet?

While we are all endurance riders here at Eat Sleep Ride Repeat, we do dabble in other disciplines and try to keep up to date with what is going on in other parts of the horse world. A recent article on Eventing Connect (https://eventingconnect.today/2017/10/09/grow-eventing-holly-jacks-smithers-kicks-it-off-in-ontario-with-a-practical-approach/) spoke to the state of eventing in Ontario.  Many events saw… Continue reading Why Haven’t You Tried This Yet?

You Can’t Ride With Me

"I can't have them cleaning two riders off the ground" was all I could think as the freshly broken mare I was riding leaped and bucked and ran through the trees as branches pulled me every direction. I don't know how I managed to stay on, perhaps it was the will from my previous thought,… Continue reading You Can’t Ride With Me

Never A Dull Moment

If you’re a regular follower of the blog, you will know that Sarah and I can never have just a “normal” ride together. This past weekend, despite the forecast, our goal was to do a long training ride of 40km (25 miles). Fortunately the rain held off on Sunday and we had a dry ride.… Continue reading Never A Dull Moment

Dreaming of Summer

Dealing with the cold weather and all this snow had me daydreaming about the summer. Longer days, warmer temperatures and trail riding all day. For my friend Nicky’s birthday this past year, I decided to take her up to Horse Country Campground for a girls weekend. I had been to this campground a few years… Continue reading Dreaming of Summer

Jingle All The Way

It all started out last weekend when Sarah and I set out to discover some new trail she had found on Google maps.  When it turned out to be a dead end, we decided to ride down the road a little ways to see if there was another entrance.  As we were riding along, we… Continue reading Jingle All The Way

Good Times in the Ganny

Our most recent competition was at the Summer’s End ride where we rode in ride n tie in the Ganaraska Forest. I’ve always enjoyed the Ganaraska trails.  They are well maintained, sandy trails with minimal rocks and with just enough hills to keep it interesting. This ride was hosted by ESRR’s own Solstice Pecile and… Continue reading Good Times in the Ganny

Madawaska Highlands Pioneer Ride of Canadians

I am very fortunate to live in an area that is central to the majority of the OCTRA events (heck, three of them are practically in my backyard). However, I’m always up for exploring new trail.  The Madawaska Highlands Ride of Canadians was at brand new location to OCTRA so I decided to check it… Continue reading Madawaska Highlands Pioneer Ride of Canadians
