New Boots= Crap riding

For your viewing pleasure ... video from Tuesday nights lesson :) Thanks Kat and Andy!

I like how as the video went on, I got worse- yep my boots were KILLING ME and I couldn't feel my feet, I was totally a passenger so mad props to Henry for carting me around!



Henry got turned out again today (Thursday), I plan to hack tomorrow (Friday) and trainer will be gone Saturday so idk about Saturday.

  6. You guys look great, new boots be damned! Breaking them in does suck though, I remember doing that last summer and it was not fun. I still get bruises behind my knees sometimes despite how much mine have dropped

  8. Breaking in new boots is not fun. I definitely feel your pain! And for me it always seems like just when I think they're finally good, they give me a new blister. Ugh.

  9. The first time I watched the video I kept giggling at the gal that sat there hugging her horse the whole time. That was me in lessons :-)
    To help break in my dress boots, I wore them EVERYWHERE. That is the good thing with having "equestrian" be in style these days. You can totally get away with it! I even had some girl exclaim "Super cute boots! I just love your outfit!" when I left the barn one day...uhhh thanks!

    1. That's Lyssette and Carlos :) I love it too!

      All my work people know I ride and see me change in the bathroom every day I ride and laugh at my sweet outfit lol. They also have been laughing lately as I apply band aids to cover my hurt feet!

    2. I wore my breeches rolled up with a pair of DC skate shoes into a bridal shop when I was trying on dresses. I was headed to the barn afterwards...didn't want to go home to change! ;-)
