Another boarder and jump/dressage rider at my barn has been teasing me about my riding in tennis shoes and half chaps for months. . . It's really comfortable. . .
Well, when I realized I needed spurs on Louie, I then realized that spurs and tennis shoes just aren't compatible. So I broke down and got a pair of paddock boots. These are really comfy, great for my wide and hard to fit feet, and work great with both spurs and half chaps. I've used them about 3 times so far and. . . okay. . . I love them!
Hello and welcome to my blog! Meet my horse Ro & Me's Master of Illusion or "Louie" as we call him. He is an 8-year-old American Saddlebred gelding sired by Trust Fund and out of Everything in Return by Royal Return. Louie was an exciting new addition to the family in October of 2008 and shows tons of potential both in the show ring and out. His friendly personality, curiosity and remarkable intelligence are characteristic of his breed. This blog will follow Louie through his daily life and training as he learns what it means to be a Saddlebred pleasure horse.
