Lee Ann B is back! She visited her family in Canada for 2 weeks. She, LeAnn P. and I went riding at Tyrrell today. Kellie was supposed to go with us but she was feeling under the weather. I got out to the barn and Biscuit was soaking wet already. He was in the arena where I had put him yesterday. I put Barry's saddle in the trailer and my bridle, etc. I hosed Biscuit off and we loaded up and off we went.
We were coming down Tyrrell Park Road in the park just in front of the golf course and LeAnn stopped the truck. She thought we had a blow out on the trailer. Smoke was billowing up and the smell of burned rubber was everywhere. There was no blowout. She said a brake had locked up so she got back in the truck and Lee Ann B and I were on either side of the trailer and when she rolled the front wheel on the right side where I was at was the one that was locked up. Something clunked inside and I thought the wheel was wobbling but it wasn't. LeAnn unplugged the brakes and backed it up and it released the freeze! We were rolling again. We pulled over to the stables but the front gate was locked so we pulled over by the bathroom/pavilion and parked there.
We tacked up and good grief...I left the Crooked Stirrups at the barn! Duh! Thank God the Billy Cook's come with pre turned stirrups. I had to take the girth up on the right hand side as it was too loose on Biscuit. Sarge has a good sized girth even though he is not a big horse. I put the breast strap on and mounted up. I thought it was too loose and got off and tightened the girth. I moved the stirrups up one hole. We went down the side of the road and were joined by a little dog that looked like a terrier mixed with a Blue Heeler.

I uploaded the Garmin and we rode 8.6 miles today. It was a blast and I am ready to go again.
