Here is my dressage horse, well in potential. There are a lot of people who don't think he can make it, there are people who don't think I can make it, but hey that's OK, with such low expectations of us, there is no pressure
Primo hasn't gotten the memo yet, but we're primarily spending this season doing dressage. Need to get it caught up to the jumping so we can actually win at Novice before moving on. Having a dressage saddle has really helped us move forward.
Here's my little dressage mare! We're going to attempt a show early this season and just do the Intro tests and maybe a Training. We're ready training-wise for Training Level and maybe even First but I haven't shown with her yet so we'll see how it goes.
We have a ways to go. I'm working on my seat this winter, so hopefully we'll be moving right along this season. Hopefully I'll have a bit of $$ left over after tax season to invest in a nice balanced saddle.
Is that what we all do? LOL I love my saddle that I just got, but if I can I want to get an M.Tolousse that has the adjustable tree. =)
It's just the one I have no pitches me forward like nobody's business. It just doesn't fit me. I've been working my butt off on developing a deeper seat. It would help to have a saddle that doesn't fight me. I looked at that M.Toulouse but heard that the black dye on the leather bleeds and you end up with black pants with that saddle, so it's no longer on my list of possibles.
