I just snagged a Stubben Scandia that's in great shape, less than 10 years old, for $300 and that included shipping! I'm having it shipped to my PO box so my husband doesn't find out, lol. I have to get another Stubben sold before I spring it on him. As of right now, we have THREE! Lol
I remember when my daughter loved to play with all the boxes I got in. Now it's just the cats, as the princess is 10 now, going on 20, and MUCH to mature for such silliness, lol.
It's a Pinnacle Kirby Close Contact. I've never heard of the brand, but it was brand new. I got it so cheap because it was a display. Like I care!
Thanks for those links! I have a couple of good snaffle bridles but my mare has an awkward head. I've just bit the bullet and ordered from Dover. Hubby said it was ok cause I'd "saved" him a tonne of money on the saddle.
Muwahahahahaa. Little does he know that means I'll probably spend even MORE time on the online tack stores and ebay.
Aww she's ten?? I finally had a little girl and she just turned 11 months. I can't wait til she's as big as the boys and rides too.
My 7 year old was very put out that he didn't get a new saddle.
My mare has an awkward head too. I always have to get her horse bridles and then Cob replacement cheek pieces, or hope that the Cob runs big... Ugh, lol. My husband is a horsey guy too, so he watches what comes in like a hawk! I was able to sneak a new Courbette bridle in under his nose last year. We don't use it much, it's our "show bridle", so I keep it hidden in a bridle bag, lol.
Here's my daughter from last June. She did a photo shoot with a friend of mine who's trying to build his photography business. Yes, normally she wears boots and a helmet, but these were her "spring" photos, instead of traditional Easter pictures.
With my mare's new bridle. She's a thick 15.2h mare. Can you believe my baby was only NINE in this photo! She's 5'3" now and wears a womens 8.5-9 shoe... Ugh, they grow to fast...
They grow up way to fast... She's my only one too. I told her when she goes off to college, I'm buying a bunch of puppies, to keep me as busy as she does, lol.
