Maybe I will be able to gather my strength by next weekend. My AMTS saddle is supposed to be here on Thursday.
Guess I will do some ground work with Falcon a few days this week in anticipation of riding again.
Last weekend that darn Big Horn endurance saddle was SO uncomfortable.
I shortened the stirrups,
(Falcon took a pic of the grass)
I lengthened them,
Falcon got closer to the grass...
I kept stopping to reposition them on my feet.
(Falcon took a pic of me while rubbing his head on me)
I have decided that the saddle seat is too small for me and does not allow me to sit properly in the saddle.
My thighs hurt so bad at the end-but maybe some of that was the "sickness" coming on.
Falcon was a good boy mostly, almost to the lake and back for an hour long ride, mostly walk with a little trot and canter up the hill.
He had two MAJOR spooks after I got off of him, once he got stuck on a branch and he went up in the air trying to get away from it. The other was a guy coming out of a house and slamming the door...
