Since I wanted to ride down the road, I grabbed an EasyBoot to see if it would fit. Baaad idea. EasyBoots are a bit challenging to get on and off at the best of times; combined with Lance's impatience and my bad back, we ended up in a three-way wrestling match. I finally got it off again (it wasn't on correctly and I knew I couldn't manage a second boot) and we had a lovely outing down the road and through a blooming cherry orchard, ending with a little trot and canter work in the arena to further test the saddle.
Unfortunately, I was 'greeted' by a lump when I pulled the saddle off; moan.
|Interestingly, it was more to the left this time; before it was on the right|
