I Ride When I Can

Basically a photo dump.

I've been riding as much as possible, which isn't saying a lot. Thanks to SJ's birthday and all the rain and my horse's crappy feet I haven't been on him in almost a week. I'm loving the new saddle and I think Twister does too. And I finally got some White Lightning as recommended by my farrier to help his feet. He said to soak it 3 or 4 times. BUT! The awesomeness is that it comes in gel form! So I cleaned out his feet really well and opened the cracks some and soaked cotton in the gel and put some up the cracks, packed with cotton and put his boots on him. Today after I ride I'll take the cotton back out, reclean and medicate again. Farrier is supposed to be here on Friday, so I really wanted to have made some headway. According to Amazon reviews, this crap works really fast.

Basically, when I'm riding I'm just moving forward, working on my legs and not leaning forward. We need to stretch and work on building muscle before we do too much.

I haven't been on Rascal since the saddle came. I probably should ride him now and then.

have since dropped my irons 2 holes...
