Saddle time

I had some fun rides on friends horses (that have indoors) last week.  Yay for Micaylah and Sprinklerbandit sharing their ponies.

The night I rode Riesling I also wore my new Annie's breeches!  I won them on The Velvet Rider's Christmas time giveaway, woot woot!
And a scarf to pull it all together
Micaylah had already ridden her beautiful grey boy so I just cooled him down with some long and low trot and walk, hoping they do some shows this year, so classy!  Also he is one of the beefiest OTTB's I've ever been around.


All the indoors blurriness 

Horse seriously has the beefiest neck

Should have put the stirrups up a hole
 Here are a couple shots of the Annie's the day they came, seriously comfy pants these are!
Excuse the blinds...cats and dog out to turn my hair grey

Hello Easter egg girl
So I really enjoyed my ride in them and look forward to more rides and washing them a few times so I can write a review.  That color is so cute...but also rather motivating to eat less!

My next adventure was to finally visit Big Papa (Courage) and check out his new winter digs.  He is living the life, giant stall, run, indoor arena, somewhat heated tack room.  Also I wanted to see all his new toys, specifically his P.S. of Sweden toys.  I already knew that I wanted PS for my next bridle...but now I do even more.  I'm nearly dying of lust over here.

Prisoner modeling Idaho's first PS bridle back in October
 Papa was awesome, Aimee has put in some solid work with him and he is so much more adjustable within his gaits.  He still has classic Big Papa 'tude, but that's why we love him.
Um hello, let's jump!!

Ignore me, but checkout his hindend
Overall it was fun to finally put in some ride time and get some horsey kisses and hugs.
