Nancy, that is the one I had wanted to do first over 3 years ago. It was on New Years Day and I was going to do a 12 mile beginner ride. My former horse Red colicked the day after Christmas and each year after that I had cakes on New Years Eve.

Dawn, Gamer did great!!! In my many years of owning and starting horses, I have only had one horse that was that quiet the first time she was backed. That was one of the best horses that I ever had. I hope that Gamer will follow suit.

My bad, then. I tend to read just new posts, and a bit selectively, so a lot of stuff drops under the mental radar

So I'm glad it wasn't what I thought. I have to wonder, though, how you deal with wet boots after something like that. I haven't gotten Ellie more than knee-deep in the lake yet. (Where we ride, creeks are usually something to jump over rather than wade through.) She's a bit of a 'fraidy cat about water, but I try to get her a little further each time we ride by the lakeside.

If you are like me, you suffer through the wet boots (or in my case, wet sneakers) until the next hold, when you have dry shoes and socks waiting!!

I am a weenie about being wet, so always have spare clothing on hand to change into.

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

James, darling, it is an ENDURANCE ride. The riders finish with broken body parts, cracked skulls, as long as the horse is fit to continue. Wet boots? In Texas, we finished with boots FILLED with sweat!! Would have givven our eye teeth to see that much water on a trail!! (From Nevada, you would understand)

Yeah, when I see that much water, it's in a lake. (Though where I ride is actually in very northeastern California, so it's a little wetter...)

But guess I wasn't clear on what I was asking. It wasn't about finishing the ride with wet boots, but how you keep the soaking from ruining the boots, and saddle leather if yours isn't synthetic.

I would think that you would wear out boots pretty fast taking them through water. I use caged stirrups so that I don't have to worry about proper riding boots. I ride with Cabela's Gortex hiking boots. I ride in them and I walk all over the place in them and get them soaked all the time. The last pair that I had lasted almost two years. This pair is a year old and still surviving.

I wonder about the leather saddles myself.

OK, LeynaProof, here is your horse's twin sister, The Lost Angel(Lucy)

She will be sideways, because she is a cellphone picture, and I cannot fix it on my iPad...sorry!
