There are only a few roads with traffic in our forest that lead to some nearby villages, but the drivers are sometimes careless, old men who don't give too much of a thought that racing those narrow, dark roads might be a bad idea.
I am going to order gear from Kraemer (a German tack shop), although I like the quality of Horze gear better. But Horze shipping costs are sky high if you don't cooperate with other buyers. And all the people that are pooling together for a shipment, are buying their stuff in Kraemer.
I will also order a winter riding coat, winter PVC boots and thermal riding boots for myself. And maybe an oilskin hat, if I have enough funds. :)
I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
