Very little time left to actually accomplish that. Will do the best I can and see how it goes. If she isn't ready we can stop at the half-way and call it a training ride I guess! She has been such a rodeo lately. But we have mastered a nice back up and a roll back working all those one-rein stops!
Ordered a fit kit from Easy-care today. I'm toying with gluing on, kinda-maybe, I dunno. But her hoof size on her fronts may warrant a WIDE as they are extremely round at this point. 117 mm X 117 mm Can't get much rounder than that! If one of the wide shells gives me a nice V I'll look for a vendor that has some wides in stock and give it a whirl. Her hinds are 108 mm X 118 mm both sides and look to fall into an 0.5 and fit reasonably well enough with a little tape as insurance (or the power straps).
I sure hope that this year things go well for me that I can at least attend three rides. I'd doubly like all the odd-ball animosity to GO AWAY. Ride my horse, tilt my face up into the sun, let the breeze off a moving horse ruffle my sleeves, and find happy. That is all.
