    Agreed! Which is why I usually use the one without, although I thought it might save me a spill in the mud out in the field if he decided to Wiggle from side to side....That being said, I did make sure to put on my riding boots with a heel and was conscious about only the tip of my toe in the stirrups the whole time!
    Looks like my friend will let me borrow her western saddle for my camping trip, so I won't have to ride bareback for that!

    Houdini has been quite the little turd lately... I posted earlier about him escaping his stall, BO had tried putting a few different types of bungees on the front of his door to keep the handle down but that didn't stop him. One day they found him actually in his buddies stall with him. He now has chains and clips on keeping the door closed!
    Then I'm sure some of you saw my panicked post in the health section when I was barn sitting and Flash pushed through the fence and the was in the grass paddock for I don' know how long. I totally panicked and iced his feet, bedded his stall, gave him bute etc as I was scared he would founder.. . He was totally fine. Fine enough that he pushed through the fence again the next day as well (I was there watching this time!) So I had to lock the horses in the arena for the rest of the day and thankfully it was the end of the week and BO was coming home from vacation the next day!
    The electric fence was ordered and they are now on grass full time so at least that has stopped him testing the fence until the electric is set up in the winter paddock!
    I swear this horse is trying to give me a heart attack!
    He has shed out nicely and is really starting to fill out and look like a horse!
    This weekend I am bringing him to hang out at his first dressage show! There weren't many entries so should be over around 1 pm or so which is perfect - short and sweet and he can see what the show atmosphere is like! I'm really hoping my saddle comes sooner than later and I can get at least one walk trot class in on him in August. That is my goal for the summer lol
    Random photos throughout the last week or two :)

    I will post an update and photos after the show!
