I wasn't sure how much my ankle could tolerate, so I thought handwalking on the laneway was my best bet. I also decided Fred was going to try out a saddle too! Whew! Can you handle the excitement? lol
I've saddled Fred a few times in the barn this winter, but never had him walk around with it girthed up. Spoiler alert: he was fine. ;-) It is hard to take pics of this horse - he wants to be in your pocket the whole time!
|I need scritches pleez. Fred, probably|
|I managed to get one decent-ish picture.|
This ankle business is seriously cramping my spring plans!
At the end of the walk, I even let down one stirrup and flapped it around. Fred really didn't care. He might feel differently moving a bit faster on the longe line - maybe next month I can try that? *Sigh*
|I really need a green saddle pad! Sheesh!|
