Here is Maple our 2 year old fox Trotter. My husband is cleaning her feet before he heads out.
Bean can't be ridden as he has thrown a shoe.
All saddled up
This was a short ride for young Maple. The stirrup bar came off and could not be fixed on the trail. So they walked back home. The modern plastic stirrups have a screw bold and a nut, the nut fell off. Good stirrups, poor design. Thankfully the saddle is vintage, made well and is comfortable for horse and rider.Maple looks like a small pony in her fuzzy winter coat.
