Saddle up

To the untrained eye, it looks like a cowboy is getting ready to ride.  Well, that’s true.  Cody is getting ready to move cattle in this photo.

But, nothing about how a cowboy prepares to ride is left to chance.  From the bit he chooses for today’s work to the direction his rope honda faces when tied to the saddle or how tight he pulls his cinch, it’s all a carefully organized process.

Each cowboy is different and has his own way to saddle up.

  1. And it’s us non greenhorns that need to be reminded of that! I was reminded of that as I flew through the air. I thought, “Gee, I really shoulda’ checked the cinch, she did look pretty puffed up when I saddled her!” Love your blog my friend:)
