Two Bits & Bytes Farm Thoroughbreds fight to roll in a mud puddle and see who can get dirtier!
Five Bits & Bytes Farm off-the-track Thoroughbreds headed to Garland Mountain in North Georgia for a trail ride on the most spectacular day. The weather was sunny and unusually cool for a June day in Georgia. Classic Casey, Stormin in Style, Political Pull, Spot Run and Imatexan had a great run on the trails.
It was a small but hardy group that set out to trail ride at Jake Mountain in North Georgia. The weather was forecasting an annoying light mist of rain with chances of heavier showers. That did not deter this group of friends from enjoying their off-the-track Thoroughbreds on a mountain trail ride and sharing a picnic. Learn how you can join the fun . . .
CLINIC UPDATE: See photos and read about our clinic with Evie Stephens. Thank you to all who participated and to our guests and new friends who joined in the fun. See photos on our Training Thoroughbreds with Dressage page.
FLASH MOBBED by off-the-track Thoroughbreds! We had a wonderful trail ride with our Thoroughbreds on Saturday at our friend Julie’s farm in White, GA. After our trail ride and during our picnic we were flash mobbed by our Thoroughbreds.

We are into week two for the training of former race horses Spot Run and Imatexan. This week they both did trail rides and cantered with their moms. It is pretty amazing that these Thoroughbreds come along so quickly with their training.
Follow along with Spot Run’s Training Diary written by his teenage owner Katelyn. Learn what it is like to retrain an ex-race horse through the eyes and thoughts of a young rider. We have video of their first canter and first trail ride on our BitsandBytesFarm YouTube Channel. You will also see video of Imatexan on her first trail ride off-the-farm. She went to Garland Mt. with Classic Casey and With Wings. We had a great time cantering then all through the trails. More photos tomorrow.

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 . . .
Five off-the-track Thoroughbreds, one Friesian and six riders from Bits & Bytes Farm set out to enjoy the day trail riding at a friend’s farm in North Georgia. Monarch’s Reign and Bubba (Lynn’s Vision) had never done a trail ride away from the farm. Read about our wonderful ride . . .
