Season plans and 'pull' musings

Boots and Saddles Blog
Ahh....blissful ignorance. Pictured (here) is my very first ride on Minx.

I made horsey and endurance goals for 2009. Admitting to doing this absolutely silly since none of my endurance seasons have gone according to "plan".

Endurance riders seem to have a phobia against pulls and marring their "perfect" record. Fortunately I got that out of the way early. Please don't be ashamed of your pulls. Not only are they learning experiences for you, but they could be learning experiences for others if you don't hide them away in a deep, dark hole.

I offer the following case studies as a source of amusement and reassurance to anyone who has done similar things.
