Equilab -- free riding app!

Hi All, it's been awhile! Thought I'd touch base for those of you who might still be following BTB. Ri is doing great, we've come a long way as far as working together. The enemy is stiffness (mine) and my new goal is a commitment to doing less. But that's not why I'm posting.

I downloaded  a new app, Equilab, that is free and I think has a great starter feature set. It's easy to use, just install, get on your horse, open, click START, and ride.

Right now the main info seems to be how much time you spend in what gait, total ride time, some stride length info and distance covered. It's probably much more useful when you're outside because it provides a map of what you covered.

As I use it more I'll write more but I should also mention it has kind of a diary feature and lets you rate your own performance and your horse's. Thumbs up so far!

Riding Warehouse Holiday Find!

I found this jacket when I was at Rolex this year. It was about $150, but it is gorgeous on, fitted and somewhere between matte and a light sheen. I looks expensive (heck, it was expensive).

Well, it's now available for $88 at the Riding Warehouse. I have ordered from RW for years, and prices are great. FWIW, the customer service is great, and shipping is fast.

Right now it looks like all sizes are available. Great gift!
