trail miles

I'll be riding tonight, but a post by Karen Chaton about her horse Chief got me thinking. She wrote: "Some said that Chief was just too green but he had over 800 trail conditioning miles before going to his first endurance ride." When I worry about my goals, I'm going to remember this. Riding should be fun, and a goal can be farther away or closer, but the fun it takes to get there may be the best part. Just adding up the mileage this year, we're only at 165 miles. We have a long way to go. As Robert Frost wrote, "And miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep."
