I forgot to attach the bridle to the halter and the browband slid down a little, but I've ridden since and actually attached it, and it works perfectly! Love it! Took me a few rides to get used to the reins- unlike the Wintec ones I'm used to, they actually have some feel! Now when my lime green saddle pad comes in, I'll be set. ;)
My Allegany Renegade Endurance saddle is for sale. Custom made for me in July of 2012 and due to health and weather didn't have that many hours on it! There is a thread in the tack section on it if you are interested. I had back surgery and my balance is shot. I need a deep pocket secure seat from here on out. This saddle has the supracor ultra soft seat so it is very comfy and it is pretty dang light. Check it out in the other thread.
Just getting into endurance...already trail ride a bunch in an aussie Patrol Poley from the Austrailian Stock Saddle Company on three of my horses and I'm currently using a GFS Fieldhouse english saddle on my arab until his aussie is finished being built.
My new saddle coming is this one:
And I'm getting a snap-on headstall for my rope halter. My arab already rides in a Myler 3 ring combo comfort snaffle. Seems much more comfortable in it.
Now for the saddle pad...I'm waiting to get the saddle in and see how it fits (should fit like a glove, but we all know how that goes).
I don't mind spending the money on a good saddle pad as I want him to be comfortable, but there are so many to choose from!
This is Luka and I at a recent obstacle trail ride. I judge and we had just finished bringing back flags
