|Life's too short not to eat pine trees.|
Are the kids still saying that these days? YOLO?
In any case, I did a thing.
|OH, HELLO GORGEOUS|
And for a long time, it was. And probably still is.
But I just couldn't shake the idea, and especially as I got Dino back into work this spring, I realized that while my jump saddle was, really, just fine, a dressage saddle would definitely help my position be a whole lot more effective on the flat.
So, with a very small budget and the help of brilliant personal shopper and tack 'ho Leah, I pulled the trigger on this bad boy:
It's BROWN, it FITS, and I'm OBSESSED.
When I started shopping, I knew that I wanted to try and stick with the Prestige brand since the tree of our jump saddle just works so well for the shape of Dino's back, and after trying Kim's Prestige dressage saddle on him and seeing how nicely it fit, I started looking for one of our own. After just a few days of searching online, Leah found me this stupidly-low-priced beautiful older model in brown, which was like a dream come true, and it made its way to me.
And right out of the box, it's pretty much a perfect fit for both of us.
|Yup. I like that.|
**I also guesstimated poorly on the girth size, so if anyone wants this very nice Collegiate synthetic shaped dressage girth in brown, size 24", hit me up!
