My parade ride
 
Well, really the warm-up prior.

Can you guys believe parade officials actually made me carry that
2 1/2'X3' sign? Thank goodness it didn't bother Leland in the
slightest. He was my awesome boy throughout, didn't even spook
when several balloons popped near us. The only thing he really
didn't care for (Annoyed ME, too!) was the incredibly harsh
announcer. But with just a bit of urging from me, he walked
past. His first parade ever!

The ribbon you see fluttering from the bridle is mine from May
15th, 1974:

Nice job....but talk about an oversized GSD...wow !!!

Here's a pic of me riding my GSD when I was a kid.....

I believe an English saddle works a bit easier on a GSD...and check the custom reins on her....she was guided by knee pressure...so no need for a bit and bridle.....
