If Momma ain't happy...ain't nobody happy
Hectic in my world, as usual. That's ok though.
I bought hubby a Christmas present and let him try it out the other day.
I got a really nice used saddle from a friend. My saddles are too small for him--I am 5'3" and he is 6'2".
This one's a Saddlesmith Ammerman roping saddle. Built nice and solid.
He has only just started riding with me in the past couple of years. Until that point, he was content to do chores. He enjoys feeding the horses and fencing and that type of thing, but I finally got him in the saddle.
He has even ridden the Badlands with me. :) He has decided he likes it! As he is pretty green, he only rides my appy. (the other two horses are not for beginners yet).
Now, he surely likes having his own saddle--we've been borrowing one from a friend up until now--but I'm not sure he really 'gets' the coolness of this gift. He tried it out and it fits horse and rider, so look out next spring! :) I may get him trained in chasing cows yet, my city boy husband. :)
I got a few pictures and will post them when I get them loaded.
When he married me, he married horse's. :)
Snowstorm on the way here this weekend. I, of course, work.
