I don't know how many of you guys know this little trick, but it is one of my favorites. My mom was taught it when I first started riding by our horse trainer. It saves so much time and effort.
Step 1) Acquire mat
Step 2) Lay leadrope across narrow part of mat
Step 3) Fold mat over leadrope
Step 4) Grab both ends of leadrope that are sticking out of the mat and use them to pull the mat to desired location
Step 5) Be filled with relief when it doesn't take you forever to move said mat and you aren't huffing and puffing (ok maybe I'm just a weakling, but those mats can be heavy!)
And that is one of my favorite barn hacks in all the land! Now if only mats didn't have to be so expensive...
P.S. Brace was short lived, I'm back in the boot and convinced my Dr is a little "special"
