    Talking Survived the 1st ride of 2013

    FINALLY got to ride after many things coming up!

    It felt AMAZING lol! 4 Months is just WAY TO LONG of a break for my horses and myself!

    I didn't get any videos of the riding part because I was more focused on making sure they were warmed up good and my butt was in the saddle in case they wanted to bust a move. But the boys were GREAT!

    JJ was wound tighter than a banjo, and stiffer than a 2x4! I lunged him for a good 20 minutes to try and get some of the pi$$ and vinagear out of him. He was tossing his head and squealing lol, then would go for a burn then calm back down. I finally decided to just get on because he was just going to keep going and going lol! He actually was great! He didn't hump up, but he was VERY forward lol. I am for sure going to throw him back in the snaffle after he isn't feeling so full of himself and soften him back up.

    Scrat did GREAT too. Lunged him for a bit, he wasn't as wound as JJ lol. And he did super good, was super light (lighter than the last time I rode him), was relaxed and just a rockstar.

    Didn't ride Zoey because we had some things to do after I rode, but she got to come along for the ride and hang out. I plan on riding her first tomorrow :)

    Pictures!

    How's that saddle of yours working out for you? It looks super good on Scrat.

    It is SUPER nice! Felt so good to ride him and not have my feet being shoved back....sat it in and my feet went just where I needed them. Super comfy I am in love with it and it fits him GREAT.

    I was looking forward to a review of the new saddle too. You look great in it. I am such a sucker for tack, whether it's new or just "new to me", and I love hearing the stories of others who get something new, especially a saddle. I got a new one last spring and love it but I will still drool all over the latest inventory at the local tack shops. Congrats on the ride. I soooo wish I had access to an indoor arena.

    Nice!! I really wish I could be getting a ride or two on Red, as he's already piss and vinegar for being cooped up!

    Jealous of your new saddle too! Looks great. I'm hoping to get a Billy Cook for Shotgun when he gets riding.
