I saddled him up - no problem saddling him. I asked Lee Ann P and Alison if they would help me on and off to make sure he didn't move for my first attempt.
Lee Ann held him and I put my foot in and up I went. A little problem getting my leg over the cantle but not near as much problems as I had before. I walked him around for 30 minutes. Stopping, backing up, turning in circles, sidepassed like a doll, leg yielded, etc. Alison came and held him while I got off. Can't tell if my foot is out of the stirrups or not. Same problem getting leg over cantle - not as bad as before but not as good as I would like. Can't tell if my feet are still in the stirrups or not. Oh well...that is how it goes. More treats for the Biscuit.
Kellie and I are riding Wednesday afternoon at Tyrrell Park. I can't wait.
Check this picture out...between Biscuit's roached back and my sway back - it is not a good fit for us - so I will be getting a new saddle as soon as I can.
|Put your left foot in and swing aboard|
|Ok...now get my foot in this dang stirrup|
|I am on!!|
|Away I go - woot - Biscuit and I are a team again!|
|Sway back + roach back is not a good combo|
|Is there a treat somewhere for The Biscuit?|
|Wet under the saddle|
