The breakfast was AMAZING! I got my picture taken with them (it's on my friends phone). There were only 25 people, so you got to spend one on one time with them. If you ever get the chance to meet trainers/clinicians that way, it's a great way to get valuable personalized info (granted you're not on your horse).

I've always been impressed with Al Dunning, but after meeting him in person I will most definitely following him more. Later in the day as I was walking around and was going past his booth, he made a point of saying hi, REMEMBERED my name & Odie, and noticed the halter. He asked about what else I found, & we talked for another 10 minutes.

So needless to say, not only do I agree with his methods but learned that he is very down to earth & genuine

You are lucky you made it to that saddle before me! I had fifty bucks and pretty much figured if I found a English saddle that would fit me for under fifty I would buy it regardless of what it looked like. I ended up with a nice used Dressage bridle for $30 and a full cheek snaffle for $8. Both fit my horses, so that was enough of a win. They have such good deals there if you dig a little, especially in the 4H used tack section! Maybe next year will be my year for saddles. ;)
