Here's a collection of interesting blog posts from around the internet for this week.
First, a collection of posts about the Fort Valey 50 Mile Endurance Ride & LD, from three excellent horsewomen and thoughtful writers. I swear, if I had to recap a 50 mile ride I'd ridden it would go something like "jesus christ that was a long ride and my ass hurts." But they go into such wonderful detail!
