Takoda's Turn

May 13, 2017


After a couple of days off to rest and recuperte, we started another section today. We got a late start on the trail but still managed to cover 24.5 miles. I decided to leave all the gear at that night's camp before I drove ahead to get on the trail. That way I didn't have to pack Takoda and instead rode him. Shyla got the day off for the most part and tagged along naked. She is definitely not as good about sticking close to Takoda which would often upset him when she would stop to grab a bite to eat and lag behind. I gave Shyla the day off because her back was a bit sore (inflamed withers) two days before. I cut some sections out of my extra saddle pad liner to give her a little more room, essentially creating a cutback pad. It did the trick too and she has been comfortable ever since.
