Photographic Evidence

After 11 days, the cold snap finally broke (30 degrees now feels like t-shirt, shorts and flip flop weather) and I was able to actually ride my horse. I knew ya’ll wouldn’t believe me, so I took a picture to prove it. And yes, that is breaking news in my life. Sad, but true.

All I did was a basic walk, trot canter each direction and I’m happy to report that Miles indulged in this endeavor. He was a little sassy in upward transitions to the canter, but it was really just pinned ears and a tail swish… no kicking whatsoever which I consider a win at this point!

Tonight an independent saddle fitter is coming out, so I’m excited for that (and keeping my fingers crossed that Miles behaves himself). I’m hoping to have a really good idea of what exactly I need to look for so that I can finish this saddle search in the next month. I also have a Prestige rep coming out on Sunday (courtesy of Wilbur&Emily!) who is bringing three different models for me to try as well.

That’s about the excitement in fly over country — TGIF!

  1. Yeah riding! Hey, I get excited over hopping on and toodling around at the walk once a week right now. Every time I think we’re going back to work, the weather does something stupid. Oh well.

    Best of luck with the saddles!
