Birthday Upgrades!!

‎This morning was beautiful so I took Linus out for a ride to keep up with the separation. It went really well and we went the other direction this time too. I turned around though because the saddle wasn't feeling just right - Linus has lost another hole on his girth!! Yay!! 
For my Birthday, the girls at work got me a gift card to a local tack shop. I had been thinking of a trade in on a saddle with leather in better condition and the underside in better condition too! It was such a beautiful day for the drive so off I went and made the trade to the new one shown in the picture. Well, it's gently used, not brand new. It's a Blue Ridge barrel saddle. The seat is a bit different to my previous saddle but it was very comfy when I tried it this afternoon and Linus seemed great with it. We did a bit of walk and trot. 
So, because of this I actually had 2 rides on him today : ) he had a few days off after his big trail ride on Sunday...ahem, Cyndi still waiting... : )
Hope you're all enjoying some beautiful and sunny weather like we have been : )
