After six months of trying out western saddles Dave finally finds one he likes.  The saddle is made on a Wade tree in the old style.  It is custom made for gaited horses (since Tango can do the foxtrot).  

Dave and Linda enjoy the great March weather by going for a LONG trail ride along the Mokelumne and Cosumnes rivers.
 Dave's new saddle gets a thumbs up on all accounts (no back ache - finally!).
The Howes enjoyed a road trip to Cache Creek casino and stopped for lunch at the Road Trip Cafe in the town of Cache Creek.  Lunch was on Dave since he was the one with the best luck at the casino.

Rainy day hijinks: It was a rainy start for March.  Sunday, the first we took pictures of our friend's Fresian horse HERE.  Then on Monday we had the entire arena to ourselves.  As the rain came down we brought out the large exercise ball and played with the horses.  They have learned to kick the ball so we play polo - sort of - around the arena.  Once we got Bucky out the game really picked up.  He played with enthusiasm.  Click HERE for the video of Bucky & the ball.
