I rode Boomer! Oh yes I did!
David hopped on him yesterday, and he felt and looked good. So I got on him this morning, and we had a nice walkabout. The only problem was getting on and off. Getting on was do-able with the help of a mounting block, but getting off was a challenge. I sat there thinking "Now how the heck am I going to get off"? I'm 5'4, Boomer's 18.2.
But with the help of David, the mounting block, and a very steady Boomer, I was able to slide off without using the arm too much. Yah! What a good boy!
If it wasn't for David's help, I'd still be on Boomer.
