Buttercup goes to Whippoorwill

Buttercup's been in light work since mid January and this was our first off-property ride. We hauled two-hours one way and had a two-hour trail ride. Admittedly, I had horrible nightmares the night before freaking out that something awful would happen to her hooves (like fall off ... silly imagination).

But nothing bad happened and it was all positive.

Next Saturday: the beach!!!

I ended up hauling Buttercup in her Rx boots to provide extra protection. The EasyBoot Web site says they provide a little extra cushion. Since my trailer is rather basic, I figured it could only help. I rode in the Edges. She strode out like the fabulous little trail horse she is.
