1/12/13- I rode Bella 22 miles in a little under 3 hours. I was going to ride my new mare too, but she has a boo boo. So no riding for her at all this weekend. I was going to ride Bella another 22 miles on Sunday, but on Saturday my stirrup broke and fell off my saddle while I was racing a friend! I considered to just keep racing, but I do ride an ex-race horse and I need both stirrups to brace on to stop her.
That was the exciting part, and the bad part was that my new horse is hurt and my saddle is broke.
