The good news is that she seems completely happy with her new saddle. I haven't noticed any signs of her being uncomfortable and she was a bit of a booger on Wednesday so I've worked her pretty hard in the saddle already.
So what's the bad news? Absolutely nothing!! :) I'm so excited to have a western saddle to ride in that fits my horse and I can't wait to show her in some western classes at the show in March!
We've had a ton of rain lately so yesterday I was only able to work on walk/trot stuff, which is fine because there's plenty that needs work even at the walk. I took advantage of the squishy, soggy arena and rode Lilly without her hoof boots and she did amazing. I didn't feel her taking short strides or ouchy steps at all, and this is the first time I've ridden her without boots since her shoes came off back in August.
I snapped a couple pictures of Lilly in her new saddle on Wednesday:

|Does it make my butt look big?|
Life is good in the world of Lilly and I hope all is well with all of you!
