Hi Nicki:
I'm currently out of town, but I'll save your e-mail until I get back and check out what brand I got. Well, as far as how complicated they are, you'll get a kick out of this. First you put on your watch. Then you take the little receiver and either strap it on your saddle, your arm, your waist, whatever suits you fine. There are absolutely no wires or connections to worry about - just a watch and a receiver. The receiver has one button - just one single button. You push it and a red light starts blinking. It takes about a minute until it finds the signal, so...tie your shoe laces, tighten your saddle, etc., by then you'll hear a little beep and the red light will have become a green blinking light. Now you're ready to go. Unlike some other devices, there is absolutely no programming or adjusting of any kind whatsoever. You just go from the first time out and enjoy it. All the info (speed, distance, average speed, accumulative distance, etc.etc.) is all on the screen of your watch. It's pretty cool, I think you'll love it. I think I paid $199 for it and it was so worth it.!!!!


Again, when I return, I'll get the name of it and e-mail it to you.

So- being somewhat mechanically challenged myself, what kind of GPS did you
get and did you REALLY find it easy to work with? I've held off as they sound
kinda complicated but would love to have a better handle on speed and
distance, especially as I have 2 young horses to bring along....
Also- have a Brenderup... Baron, I think, with the tack room... ended up
putting the corral panels on the top of the truck, altho I think they could be
mounted just fine on the wall of the trailer if the legs of the panels fit over
the wheel wells. We ended up with some really light- and wonderful- panels out
of Oregon that we first saw at the Reno convention. They weigh about 10#
each, so even after a ride we can still lift them onto the top of the truck by
standing on the tail gate.... will say, it's much easier taking them down, when
we're fresh and gravity is working FOR us... nikki
