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.

^ No, you can't. These vests are made to protect you from getting a serious back injury... I wouldn't recommend "making one yourself".

Anyway...

If we are talking saddles, COURBETTE VISION! I love that saddle ( I have the old model but I know people who have new models and love them as well). They put you in a great position and are easily fit to warmbloods. My AWB is a med-wide tree and it fits her great. Super comfy and lets you really feel the horse.

I'll look into that that EventerDrew! Thanks for the tip! Lol while I'm talking about WBs, my trainer rode Goef in my lesson last week for the first time and she was like "Oh my God!!! He has that huge WB trot! No wonder you were bouncing around!" It was so funny!

haha. My mare's canter is hell to sit. Every time someone else gets on her they say "oh my goodness how do you sit this?! You make it look so easy!" I find it funny and flattering at the same time. Lol

my mare cannot stand the right lead. She will hollow her back, pin her ears, put her face in the air, and make the most unattractive faces ever. Haha. She is getting better though. I will be pleased if it gets to be at least presentable again

I'll be pleased if he will hold a nice canter with a nice headset for a 20M circle for me! Without spurs and a crop. I tried spurs, but I don't think they work well for me at this point in time, I'm scared I will hurt him.
