I also received my new EasyCare Trail boots in the mail yesterday. I was surprised that they sent me a replacement for each boot instead of just the one I was having the most trouble with. Now I have a spare, though, so I'm very grateful. So the good news is, I can go back to riding without having to worry about her boot falling off!
I've also not had another issue with Lilly's saddle. I had a feeling she was going to do this to me... she'll be great for a while and just when I think we're good to go, she'll surprise me and start acting uncomfortable again. I've been planning ahead, though, and when she does it again (because I know she will) I'm going to try her with a half pad. The boarder I've become pretty good friends with is super nice and always offering her tack for me to try. She's got a really nice half pad that I'm going to try when the time comes.
She's so nice, in fact, that she let me ride her boy Music the other night. She felt sorry for me, so we traded horses. He is huge, and super sweet! I had a lot of fun riding him. :)
The other night at the barn I took advantage of the pretty sunset and set up my camera on the arena gate. Using my remote control, I snapped a few shots of me and my sweet girl.
