Bobbi & Dreamer

Bobbi & Willie

Bobbi & Willie at Tevis

My name is Bobbi Walker and I live in Rochester, WA.

I do long distance riding and ride a 15-year-old Sweepstakes Nominated Arab named Echcentric DPA (aka Willie) and an unregistered 13-year-old spotted walking horse named Dreamer.

My best memories have been on horseback and I am grateful to have a place to enter my miles and to correspond with like-minded people! Best of luck to everyone this year and we hope to see you on the trail!

    Rode to where D4000 meets Mima Falls Trail. Lost a boot so had to backtrack some. Luckily Amy had a spare, thanks Amy! A few gymnastics on the way home involving a tarp, hopefully we're all ok.

    MTD: 110.28 MI.

  5. 1/21/19: 12.62 mi.
    Rode Dreamer in new saddle with woodback saddle pad. It still rubbed his hair, but not as bad. His little back is getting pink like the hair is coming off of it? I put my Cashel and sheepskin on the saddle, but it comes off when I get off! But I like the saddle I think. My butt is scabbed, but that's from the first time I rode with no padding. This was a level ride today, over the weekend I will ride cap forest again and see what the hills do to me with padding. Rode with Amy and Kate. Started at Spooner and ended up at WHF.

    MTD: 122.90 MI

  6. 1/23/19: 23.43 mi.
    Shelley and Scarlett and Willie and I rode the Willapa in my final mileage calculations for the Midnight Rider using Eileen's GPS. We rode to trail past MM32 from Pe Ell and back to Pe Ell. Then I left Shelley there with the rig and Willie and I went to WHF. Shelley picked us up there. Now I can calculate the Midnight Rider final mileage.

    MTD: 146.33 MI

  7. 1/30/19 3.32 mi
    Rode a little loop by the house on Dreamer. Trying out a Ghost Treeless saddle. I'll have to put in the shim in the front for me :-) My legs bumped up against the knee rolles and the leathers seem too short.
    MTD: 149.65 Mi

  8. 2/1/19 10.29 Mi.

    Rode behind house on Dreamer with Ghost Treeless. Amy was here with Kate. What a fun ride we had! We did a little exploring of roads to nowhere :-) Treeless hardly ruffled up Dreamer's back at all and that was great.

    MTD: 159.94 Mi.

    Dreamer and I rode with Mark and his bike, we intended to head for Bordeaux, but it was snowing and hailing, so we decided to explore closer to home, the route Amy and I had tried. Mark made it down on his bike but he said it was tough. Dreamer and I turned around and went home the normal way. Ghost saddle had more rubbing today of the hair darn it.
    MTD: 170.20 MI.

  11. 2/8/19 6.62 mi.
    Dreamer and I rode with Jodie and Wynd behind the house. Did the clay loop backward. Used Ghost Treeless. The saddle pad slipped back and so did the saddle.
    MTD: 176.82 Mi

  12. 2/17/19 17.63 mi.

    Dreamer and I rode with Amy and Kate at Grayland Beach. The light was incredible and the weather was perfect! Took lots of pics, one of which I want to enter into the photo contest this month! Put show sheen under the Ghost saddle. Much less hair rubbing but it looks like he got an actual saddle sore :-( I've never had one before, so I am pretty bummed.

  13. Oops forgot to add it up!
    2/17/19 MTD: 194.45 Mi.

  14. 2/20/19 13.11 mi.

    Rode with Amy/Kate, Shelley/Scarlett and Dreamer! We averaged 5.9 mph for the fastest average time this year! Dreamer gaited well next to Kate and Scarlet was able to keep a slow trot going. Kate shied a few times, Dreamer got his bit under his tongue TWICE, but other than that, beautiful ride on a sunny warm day.

  22. 3/26/19: 20.65 mi. Rode with Shelley/Scarlett and new friend Maddie on Willie and I rode Dreamer with his new bit! It works great, but now that I'm controlling speed he wants to control direction...had a wonderful time!
    MTD: 325.62 mi.

  23. 3/29/19: 9.89 mi. Rode with Alexis/Siena and Amy/Kate, I was on dreamer. Bit wasn't the jewel it was the first time, he had a lot of attitude.
    3/31/19: 6.12 mi. Rode Dreamer behind house with Charity and her Daughter. Walked. Noticed that dreamer's chain on his bit cut through his skin, maybe that's why he's not a happy guy!
    MTD: 341.63 Mi.

  24. 4/2/19: 11.44 Mi. Rode Willie with Shelley/Ginger from Adna to a little past Ceres Hill. Laaaazy horses. Willie got vacinations the day before and I think he was under the weather.

  27. 9/7/19: 10.25 MI. Donna/Ransom, Willie and I rode behind the house. Trotted up the steep hill did the loop and came back via the overloop, then took the road home. GPS battery went dead, so I took the ride mileage I had from a similar ride. We actually went more than this bedcause we had to backtrack to get a boot that we lost.
