Some love their surfboards. Some love their skis. Some love their cars. Some love their pets. Me? I love my new boots!!
Dixie and I have so much fun riding together. She works at the Carway border with 4 days on, 4 days off. And because we have a blast together on her days off we always go riding. Actually, it is just not riding, she teaches me horsemanship and it is pretty darn fun. Trotting and posting came pretty easily for me and I have loped a few more times and I am getting the hang of it. But I have also learned how to spin. It is when the horse is going in a tight circle and crossing their front legs as they turn. I have also learned how to use the reins more effectively and to use my legs as signals to the horse as well. It is all very exciting.
The reason why I love my new boots is because they can make spurs work the way they should. Before I bought my boots I was either wearing Dixie's boots or my tennis shoes and spurs with tennis shoes was not working for me. Some people can ride a horse with no spurs but I seem to have a hard time so the boots really were a necessity, really they were.
Mark is not so sure about these boots, but I am. I really really like them. Alot. He will be the first to tell you that me learning how to ride and buying cowboy boots was the LAST thing he thought would EVER happen. When in Rome do what the Romans do.
