Something else rather important, and interesting, I forgot to mention about Desire’s performance in the Renegades. Where in Easyboots she has always forged, sometimes constantly, clock clock clock clock, so bad we rasped and gave the boots a roll to try to help the break over, as we’ve worked on her break over of course…well anyway in the Renegades, she forges *rarely,* in fact only occasionally uphill. A Renegade friend mentioned noticing that the Easyboot gaiter affected her horses break over and action, which came to mind when I noticed this in Desire. Interesting.
I rode Desire to the Wildlife Area so I could cross water and really put the Renegades to the test. Of course that meant crossing the bee-filled boundary gates, so this time I brought along a little back up:
See the same 2 youngsters and their mom at the same spot every early ride
Early a.m. in the Wildlife Area
Legit water crossing, boots submerged!
After power trotting away from the water, cantering and powering up a long, steep hill, and descending: ALL FOUR BOOTS!
D looking cool as a cucumber after some hillwork.
