These well worn boots actually got out to the barn today, for a much needed horse ride. I so want a new pair of slip on boots instead of lacers, I have had these for a long time.
And my favorite saddle got somewhat dusted off, LOL, and actually used too! The saddle is a Crates brand model 4525, which I looked up on the Crates website and it has an equifit tree which is6 5/8 wide , 16 inch seat, reining saddle. If you own a Crates you can do quite a bit of research on them.
I took this picture for a bit fitting post I am doing later, but I love the shadows, showing me taking pics, LOL
And another shadow picture and proof that I was up on her today! LOL
We had an ok ride, she is such a brat sometimes, if I ask her to go faster ie trot, she just quits sometimes, I dont get mad at her anymore, but it is frustrating, she is a left brain extrovert/introvert in Parelli speak. She has her own ideas about what she should do, she never does more that balk and kick out though, when I ride her more she isnt as bad. She is neck reining very well, I would hope so finally, she is 9 years old!
My fat girl, just like me LOL, all the wrinkles on her neck show how fat she is.
Her forelock is turning white! She also has a white stripe down both sides of her crest.
She is an interesting color, I will give her that. Her wild mane, she has a gorgeous tail and not so much mane, it looks good when it is banded. She has rubbed it all off on her withers, the flies have been awful. She has been wallowing in a dust bath too, it took a long time to brush all the dirt off of her, she was back to brown instead of white on her back!
