Glad you had a good time on your ride!
Sounds like you and your horse were well prepared. A 50 is a different animal but it looks like you're well on your way.
That's some awesome scenery you guys ride in out there.
LOL on getting turned around. It happens. My horse and I got "lost" and did the 32 mile version of a 25 mile ride last year and still won.
The endurance crowd is always great people, it is usually an honor to make their acquaintance.
I had big plans for a couple destination rides this year, but unfortunately am in between horses right now.
The Moab ride will definitely be at the top of the list when the tide turns!
Thanks for posting the pics and info and good luck with your next ride.
Keep us posted!
