(4501) Adding a few pics from the Blossom Ride 2010. I don't know how to download all five at once so I'm doing them one at a time. I have pics of others but I don't know who they are other than nice people that I've met at different times on the trails and don't want to post without their permission. Hopefully this first one will upload. This is my friend Eula on our way to Walsh Road.

Gordon and I just went to the Funeral Home for the service of Delbert E. White, the owner of THE BLUFFS at Camden, Michigan. We had a visit with Del's son, he told us to spread the word that he wanted horse people to continue to come and camp at THE BLUFFS as that is what dad wanted. So in case you have heard different, THE BLUFFS IS STILL OPEN FOR CAMPING AND RIDING.

The Bluffs is a small privately owned campground in southern Hillsdale county located on Montgomery Road just west of M-49. The trails are wide and very well maintained, lots of hills, a covered bridge over the creek a couple of private lakes, a very pleasant place to ride. It is featured in the Horse Source put out annually by the Equine Times, it is also featured in John Faitel's revised edition of Michigan Horse Trails book. I have a friend who used to ride endurance and she trained at the Bluffs and claimed those trails told her when her horse was conditioned and ready to compete. It is only 3 miles from my house and I plan to go down there later this week to see if they have any brochures or printed materials to hand out, if they do I will get some and let you know I have them.

Zareba EZEE 900 square foot Corral (portable) that operates on 4 D-cell batteries. Has 4 self-contained reels of 1 1/2" (white) poly tape, built in fence charger (8,000 volts), 4 corner posts and 4 portable posts which all fit into a handy little canvas bag (about as large as a pup tent). Great system for trail riding/camping and easy for one person to put up. We only used this once so it's brand new (it's not even dirty yet). See the website here for a good picture of what it looks like: [www.horse.com]

Nothing is wrong with it (the fence was hot enough to keep 2 of our horses contained) but we just don't use it. We paid $325 for it but will sell for $250. Not kidding when I say that it's brand new and you can't tell it was ever used. (269) 744-0433. Email: gaitedhorse@hotmail.com.

Saddle Fitting Clinic
Presented by The Pinckney Trail Riders Association

Sunday, June 13th
11 am
Hell Creek Corral
10828 Cedar Lake Rd. Pinckney, MI 48169

Clinic – free for PTRA members, $5.00 non-members

Erin Bisco, of White Willow Therapies, will show how saddle fit affects your horse bio-mechanically. Most saddles are fit to a standing horse rather than a moving horse. Through explanation and demonstrations she will show you how the fit of the saddle can alter the way your horse moves and consequently carries its rider. Troubles on the trail can often be the result of an improperly fit saddle. Does your horse have the freedom of movement it needs for the those canter rides? Is there a little bucking going on when you try to increase your speed? Does your horse move away from you when you try to mount? Maybe he’s trying to tell you something.

Erin Bisco is a practicing massage therapist and a certified Equine Massage Therapist. In 2008 she attended a working course on saddle fit and performance problems through Balance International.

Individual fittings - $45.00

Erin will be doing individual fittings following the clinic.

If you would like to bring your horse for a fitting please call to reserve a spot. These fittings take approximately 1 hour. A negative Coggins is required.

I am selling my almost new Big Horn endurance. This is a great saddle that fits my Missouri Foxtrotter perfectly but doesn't fit me as well. It has a wide, gaited, flexible tree that works great-very comfortable for the horse. It has five rides on it and cost me $1350. I am asking $1100. I can't get a picture loaded, but if you are interested, I can e- mail it to you.

Heads up to all the 1st June Riders who travel M-65 - due to "orange barrel season" it's down to one lane between M-55 and Hale. Use US-23 along Lake Huron or call for other directions - 989-473-3205.

I used to board at a place that had Richies automatic waterers and they never froze, were a breeze to take care of and just made sense in the sturdiness and hardware.

I swore if I ever got to that point in $$ and barns I'd get a Richie.

When we set up shop here I went to a large farm down the road and asked them which they like the best- as they had a few different models. The Nelson won- so we put that one in - seems to hold up and not get messy, crack, and parts are available if needed -although that has not been necessary. I love having automatic water -- I feel like a 'big girl' now.

(4484) 14.3 hand registered TWH mare. Absolutely stunning to look at and gaits like a dream. This mare can cover ground and has an awesome pedigree if you have an interest in breeding. Forward moving mare that you can just get on and go. Loads, clips, bathes and camps. Good for trails or show; not a beginners horse because she likes to move out on the trail. Must see to truly appreciate. 1800.00 OBO
