    Aussie saddles definitely make you feel secure. The deep seat and the knee rolls pretty much keep you in place. I removed the stirrups the other day and trotted and cantered without them with no problems. Love it!

    Where is everyone? So quiet.

    Montana...are you snowed in someplace?? Haven't seen you on here since before New Years!

    Bugs is sporting a new set of shoes. Nowever it seems he kicked the farrier not bad but its a no no. Lack of experience on the horses part so more training to be done.

    He was fine with the picking up and shaping of his hooves but when the farrier started to nail the back shoes, Bugs was not impressed, so now I have the job of picking up the back legs and tapping on the hoof to get him used to that feeling. I think I will ask she who must be obeyed to demonstrate what the farrier wanted done before I start. In fact, she could demonstrate it several times, I'm a slow learner

    I think my longest day riding was a little over 10 hours. I was on a planned ride & our "guide" got lost! I was in my Western saddle that day because I had my large canvas saddle bags as I had lunch for me & my horse, drinks, etc. I was so ready to get off,& my friend & I went home the next day instead of going out again. Her horse was tired, but my Appy was fine.

    This thread has been pretty quiet lately. Right around Christmas, we were really posting a lot.

    Tried to find a new Australian cinch today, with no luck. Going to have to order one online, my saddle came with one but the fleece is really worn. It will work until I can get a new one.

    Going to hit the the trail tomorrow. Haven't ridden anywhere but the arena for almost 2 months due to all the mud. It seems to be drying up nicely and will be 50 degrees tomorrow so hubby and I are saddling up. We'll see how the Australian saddle does on the trail!
