Great riding in SC this weekend!

I just got back from a weekend trip to the Double J Ranch in Whitmire, SC. If anyone has a chance to go, they should do it. They are a newer facility, but so worth the trip. I went on the best trails I've ever ridden, and I've ridden alot of them.

We took an advance ride and you wouldn't have believed the water crossing, jumping, sliding down hills we did. It was awesome for a flatlander like me. Lots of creek riding (keeps your boots good and clean
) They normally have river riding, but the river was very high, so we had to stay out.

The good news is: I only fell twice. Once on an unexpected jump and once when my stirrup broke, luckily it waited until we were cantering back into the camping area. If I don't take atleast one spill I think I'm doing something wrong

I'm sorer today than I've ever been from riding, but it was so worth it.

They have trails for the less adventuress too.

It was about a two hour drive for us. We are planning to go back for a big event they are having in May. I took my lap top, but we stayed so busy, we barely turned it on. This is a ride worth traveling for.

BTW SC/NC riders...Manchester's Spring Ride in Sumter is this weekend. I don't think we're gonna make it, but this is a nice ride too...nowhere near as adventuresome, but alot of fun and a great party. If you've never gone you should make the trip.

Oh, I am GREEN with envy! This sounds like great fun!

I sold my seasoned trail horse in January. DH has a great trail horse, but I have only a very green young mare who is not near ready to come out of the ring and hit the trails.

Hey - next time take your camera so we can live vicariously, OK??!! Just put it in your pack so it won't get smashed when you are a dirt dart!

I am so jealous! I haven't been riding in almost 4 years!! I can't believe it's been that long.

Glad you had a great time. Sounds like an awesome experience. Yeah, pics next time!!
