|lily, just because she looked cute.|
Robert's leg: Cold and tight! Feeling it today, I can tell there had definitely been some heat and swelling it it Monday and Tuesday. But it felt great this afternoon so we did ten minutes of tack walking in the arena. No stiffness, no shortness, just awesomeness.
|"yes, i do need my blanket washed."|
The new saddle: It fit Robert amazingly well. Not a perfect, halos shining out of the tree fit, but even with me sitting on it, no pinching or crushing that I could feel. Certainly no worse than the one I've had on him since I got him, and he's never shown any soreness from that. I was afraid it might be a hair narrow when I set it on him without a pad, but once I got it slid down to where it wanted to sit, it looked pretty durned good. However, the seat is actually only a 17" so it's still a smidgum small for me. Also, here's what I know about dressage saddles: Nothing. It felt like it cranked my leg into a really weird position too far forward, and I certainly don't need any help in that department.
|this is where my leg hung naturally. it looks wrong to me.|
I'll ask BO next time I'm out. It may be perfectly normal for all I know.
