Yeah, it is nice to hear from another Okie lol! Yeah, my tack doesnt match, but as I ride more my saddle will darken up and I love all my tack, especially my saddle, very comfy! I am hopefully going to take Ransom for his 1st trail ride this saturday if its not too wet out. Took him to the arena for the first time about 2 wks ago and he did fairly well, until some people with their horses showed up and then his focus went completely out the window! He wanted to play with the other horses and visit. They asked what breed he was and told me they loved how he looked. The compliment was nice!
