In Topic: I Rode My Horse In The Parade :)

We do have a couple of towns that don't want horses in their parades. Mainly because of the round grass droppings the horses seem to leave behind. I am planning on another parade on August 15th. There is a breakfast trailride before the parade that day. It goes along with the rodeo that my saddle club puts on.

So glad you had fun at the parade. Nice saddle. I too rode in the local parade yesterday. It was the first time in 2 1/2 years that I have ridden. I have had some pretty bad health issues. It was fun even though I did get stuck when I was dismounting. I couldn't get my leg lifted up high enough, but a friend helped me. My Charlie was a very good boy too. No spooking or acting crazy. Except for the horse beside me. She kept backing up to us trying to double barrel poor Charlie. Thankfully I got him to get away from her. 

 

So when will you be in the next parade?

I would say it is from the 70's maybe early 80's and it's a pleasure saddle. Used to have one. Comfortable ride.

I know this is from last year but haven't been on in a long time. IMO it is the same as wearing a bra. I prefer the wider ones for comfort. The narrow ones seem to always dig into me and are uncomfortable.  :happy0203:

I don't grain at all. I have found that a good hay is all they need. But that being said I do carry nature valley oats and honey bars with me to snack on. One for me and a couple for each of the horses. They really like them. I just trail ride anymore and they are "special needs" horses. So no grain allowed. If I think they need extra in winter I will make them some oatmeal with carrots and/or apples. In summer on hot days and they are standing in the shade and dripping sweat I will give them gatorade.
