Four Bits & Bytes Farm Horses and six friends attended the Shakerag Fox Hunt in Hull, GA today. Rocky Bear, Saint Lawrence, Brewster and Political Pull all did great!

Saturday was the perfect Fall day for taking a trail ride to the North Georgia Mountains. Dawson Forest is not that far from our farm and there are over 5000 acres of wooded trails to ride on. We loaded up three Thoroughbreds – one who had never been trail riding, and met up with two more Thoroughbreds owned by friends who purchased their off-the-track Thoroughbreds from Bits & Bytes Farm.
It was a beautiful Easter Sunday morning but it was a little too early for Monarch’s Reign to be up for a trail ride. He fell asleep on his saddle as his mom tried to tack him up in the trailer. See the photos of our ride and our Easter/birthday party that we enjoyed when we returned to the farm on our 2011 Outings & Training Photos page under Training Thoroughbreds.

We just returned from a fabulous trail ride to Garland Mountain in North Georgia. It was only a 30 minute ride from Bits & Bytes Farm and the weather was perfect! The temperatures were cool in the morning but by afternoon they were in the low 70’s. The leaves are beginning to change and the ground was dry. Read more . . .
We spent a great day today trail riding our Thoroughbreds at the Chickamauga Battlefield with our friends. Today was a perfect fall day just right for a trail ride. There was a nip in the air this morning and the leaves are just starting to change color. It was a kind of day that you will remember in the cold of winter or the heat of the summer. Not too many days are as perfect as today.
We had an interesting group of horses and riders. We took five Thoroughbreds from Bits & Bytes Farm: Pride of the Fox, Monarch’s Reign, Political Pull, Brewster and the wonderful With Wings aka “WWW”. We met up with Bob and Susan Goodman riding their huge warmblood fox hunters. Chase New, our farrier, brought two of his mustangs and his friend Amanda. We had one Western saddle, two bareback riders and five English saddles. Susan decided to ride her hunt horse Henry bareback when challenged by Chase riding bareback on his small mustang. The challenge got tougher when the jumping started. Read the rest of the story . . .
