I have so much fun reading the blogs here at blogger, I thought I would set one up for my own friends and family. My hope is that others can find this blog as entertaining and as informative as I have found “endurance granny”, “fugly horse of the day”, “Cake Wrecks” and “Endurance Stuff”. This blog will be no where as good because I lack the superior writing skills that those bloggers obviously have *sigh*, but on occasion I hope to have my very talented sisters chime in.
Why “Boots and Saddles”? Boots (and shoes) and saddles in addition to being a civil war bugle call, are probably the most important pieces of equipment for the horse and rider. In addition to endurance riding and other modern horsey pursuits, I am a reenactor, focusing mostly on 1863 artillery and supporting units. From time to time I will post my reenacting adventures with CHAS doing a variety of activities including Cavalry games, driving horse-drawn ambulances, and portraying mounted artillery.
