Currently Mr.Grumpy has to warm up in the walker before riding as it makes his muscles and back looser before you put your wheight on him. Of course this is no problem in the summer when the sun is shining, but having to do it in the winter when it’s poring down is another story.
So I had a think about what rug I could put on him while he warmed up. Generally I saddle him up before so both he and the saddle gets a bit warmed up. The only issue with that is that a saddle generally don’t fit under a turnout rug and you’ll end up ruining your saddle. I even had a laugh with some ladies at the stable the other day that I probably would have to make my own rug. I was even considering doing it, but then I came across the rug below:
At first I laughed it off, but it’s actually everything I need. The saddle fits perfectly under it and for 10 min in the walker it’s more then good enough. And the best thing about it? It was 11 euro at Agradi. 11 euro and then I even got a free magic brush with it. Oh happy days.
Since I was already ordering I also made sure to order new gloves. The ones I have literally smelled like rotten fish(sexy hey)and was full of holes so it was time for new ones.
The only ones that doesn’t give me loose tips on the end of my fingers. Can’t stand when that happens. My cat found them highly interesting as well, she wouldn’t go out of the photo.
