Riding in the CWD Cover, and a Gorgeous Sunset

Thanks for all of your kind words and commiseration on my Dressage saddle yesterday.  It really did make me feel better.  I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with it - probably check with the Wintec-affiliated tack shops Calm, Forward, Straight posted to the comments and decide whether to go through with it based on the price.

Oh and this is the CWD's temporary home while I figure something out.  I could not leave it at the barn after that, even though it's in the non-mousey tack room.

My office

On to something happier!  I went out to ride last night - Mondays aren't on my usual schedule, but I needed to get those blankets in before it rained.  It rained during my ride, lightly, and I still rode outside thanks to CWD's sweet rideable waterproof saddle covers:




It's a pretty sweet setup.  I didn't notice it at all during my ride.  And it wasn't rubbed at all or anything when I was done - not that I expected it to be, since it's designed for that:

Grrrr you can still see the kid's SadleTite on the seat.

Anyway, I was quickly rewarded for riding in the outdoor by a double rainbow over the farm, followed by a gorgeous sunset.  Photo dump!



The double rainbow didn't really get captured well by the phone, but you can kind of see it here.

  3. I'm sure you have written about them, so sorry if this is a silly question... Do you like your stirrup irons and what kind are they? I am finally fed up with trying to like regular fillis irons and need something better for ankle comfort!

    1. I'm actually not sure if I've written about them, I don't think I have. They're the Compositi wide track stirrups, composite. Retail is like $34. I've heard people say they do offer better ankle relief, I haven't had any problems with them. They do make the saddle a lot lighter and my foot feels secure in them. I think MDC is the gold standard for ankle relief, but if you can't shell out $150 for stirrups, these are a good thing to try.

    1. Yeah, not sure what I'll do long term, or how I'll juggle trainer rides. It has to be there sometimes.

  7. I also would definitely take my saddle home after what happened to your dressage saddle. Now I'm paranoid and I haven't seen a rodent in any of ours.
