Today hubby, my father, and I went for a ride along a trial that runs above the train tracks. The historic train still runs on the tracks a couple of times a day. Every summer they have a "Train Robbery" train and I've aways wanted to run along the train on my horse at a gallop. How fun does that sound? Well today when we were riding we saw the train coming. It was down below but in an area where we had a clear view of it and it of us. It was 4 cars long and FULL of people. They were waiving and taking pictures. We waived back. As the last car came along I gave hubby the look. "Really?" he asked. My answer was to kick Comic into a gallop and chase the train. The track is straighter than the trail so we had some catching up to do. It was so much fun!!! The people on the train were whooping and hollering as we ran along side them. I pulled up to see how hubby was doing and let him pass me. I noticed that his saddle was slipping a little (his draft cross is shaped like a barrel) so we reined them in. But everyone was grinning.
This was my first test ride for my new Renegade Viper hoof boots. They stayed on no problem! One twisted just a tiny bit but (less than 1/2") I didn't get the "corners" on his heels as rounded as I should have. I was so happy with them. They go on so easy. I put a set of my dads easyboots on the rear feet and they are NOT easy to put on. I think I'll be getting another pair of Renegades for Comic.
Happy riding everyone!
