What kind of helmet did you have?
No I would obviously put protection before the look ! There are no questions there.
But how do you know which brand is safer, or more secure? Like helmets. You can have cheaper brand, doesnt mean the quality is not good, but how do you know if it will save your life?
French people are really into the brand GPA when it comes to helmet, and jumpers. Never owned one, way out of my price range, but is it worth putting 500 $ ? Unless it is really secure and will save your life?
For breeches I love tuff rider and probably will end up buying only these, but it is nice to have other people's opinion, or even to try.
I posted this because my new job was requiring me to wear black boots when I have 2 pairs of brown ones
And it was really hard to make a choice because I don't want to spend if its not going to last. I d rather put little bit more and make sure its good quality. But its hard when you don't know the brand here, reviews online depends on the experiences people had.
What about bridle? Some are padded, other not. Different type of leather,ect.. im planning on getting a new one and I want to make sure it wont end up breaking on me
I know saddle the most important is that it fits your horse and yourself and that it is comfortable for both.but still, there are names that are more reliable than others. Is it because the quality is better or people just had better experience?
Thanks for sharing !!
