After performing Aires Above the Ground and then SHPLAT on the ground last week, followed by a 6-hour trip to the ER, I decided to get back on my horse (a different one!) today for a nice, gentle ride. All was going well until I stepped into trot and took a rather large and unplanned step, indeed, when my stirrup leather broke, flinging the iron into the sand somewhere and me lurching as my foot continued in a downward trajectory like a missed stair step. Luckily, I was balanced enough and my steady-Eddie horse didn’t care. Considering the bad equine juju I’ve been experiencing this week, I elected to get off, find that lost stirrup iron, and do some gardening instead. I figured my mishap last week likely put extreme torque on an already worn leather. It’s a wonder it didn’t let go when I mounted! Lesson learned–check you tack before you ride.
