My dad paid me for all the work I did this summer, which equted to alot! So I'm going to pay fo the vest myself, I do need a new saddle, and I'm going to talk to my grandma about it being most of my christmas gifts this year. Exchange most of my gifts for a Stubben or a Bates(or whatever happens to end up fitting Geoffery!). Sigh, why do horses have to be so expensive. I was watching TLC and saw a comercial for that Todeler's and Tiara's show and the mom was like it all cost around $3000, and I'm like, yea, that's what we pay for a saddle! :P We should get more regonition! Ok rant over.
