I love both as well, and I can't tell you how relieved I am that the saddle actually fits her, I was only semi joking when I said after I bought that saddle, that I would never buy a horse that it didn't fit

It is a Reinsman Saddle a Comfort Fit Trail Saddle like this Reinsman Trail Saddles - 4136 Comfort Fit Trail Saddle - Safety, Comfort and Performance for rider and horse. I had seen a Reinsman in a local store and just loved the look and feel of it, and had to have one. I had to save a lot, and eventually bought that one on ebay, at a great deal, and it has been everything I hoped for.

Good to hear.

Here's one that's kind of similar to my blouse:
Hobby Horse Clothing Company : Blouses : Roxy Blouse

I have an article in my latest Journal about how to wear a scarf, I'll find it and scan it in to my computer and put it up for you.
Yup low level, so I'm happy with clean horse and clean tack, at the moment I'm tied between a black shirt, I see DH has an unused black Wrangler shirt he has probably forgotten he owns, with a scarf, I like the all black with a splash of color theory. I am tempted by a sparkly one as well, mmmm I have actually remembered that my old trainer owes me for a couple of bits, if I get that money I could invest it in a show shirt

You could also add a little dazzle dazzle yourself. I purchased a "candy cane" and crystals online so I can glue crystals to Kitten's clothes. :)

I think you are kidding, but if you are not, let me please caution you against going monochromatic. It is a very "youth" thing.

I can't believe I just had to google monochromatic

LOL, I am torn between the all black with a purple scarf, could be very dramatic, although some sort of purple hatband would be nice as well. Or the all black with the purple shirt, I do like the stand up collar look, and the black side panels, with a nice fabric for the body.

You can do no wrong with black chaps, black pants, a black hat, and a shirt color of your choice. It is a good look without going "overboard". Personally I would just find a purple button up shirt and be done with it. Very easy to wear and flattering for all ages and sizes.
