|Days of yore, jump saddle|
I have decided to revisit a "Feel like home"
place. It has been some time since I have felt comfortable, as I was truly more interested in my mare's comfort.
So, while she has been nice and comfy...I HAVE NOT!
Yea, I am talking about saddles again....Above the Stubben fits nicely on the mare. Sometimes I used a bumper pad to level the seat. But, that made my comfort worse. I have been getting hit in the woowoo. I can't take it anymore! I have gone back to my "Hans Biglajzer "Jump saddle. It is all of 9 pounds and so compy! It fits fine for now on the mare...since we have not buffed out with the hills as before, when we stopped using it.
And...we are going back to the mountain lakes soon too!

Tomorrow, we are Taking the horses to the LAKE!

The two mares have not seen each other for some time...it should be interesting to see the reunion. After some squeals and posturing, they will be besties again for the trailer ride up to the mountain.

I have been super busy these past weeks...working and gardening, preparing for this camp trip. I went out to the trail and retrieved some old hoof boots I "ditched" last year, when the mare was traveling funny...I took them off and stashed them in the brush. Since the Easy boot "WIDES" have worked so well, I decided to sell the "Reneagdes" back to the feller I bought them from, and send in the old "Cavallo"boots-pictured below attached to my saddle.
|Ditched hoof boots- those days are OVER!|
You are able to send in an old pair of competitors hoof boots , once a year, for 50% off Gloves or Back Country Gloves. THIS is a GREAT DEAL, since I have finally found some of their well thought out and designed boots to fit my TB mare.
The invention of "WIDES", has made us two fillies really happy!!
The Rear EB Gloves came in the mail in record time. We've had some very nice outings with plenty of trots and canters.

Time for some of that summery goodness of cooking over the open flame, telling stories till your eyes are drooping, eating "smores" (trying a new recipe) and riding, riding, riding!!!
|My mare, the Daisey!|
See you all when we return to town again, next week.
