So, altho I have tons of "stuff"......I am now wanting to get new, specific to reining, with an eye on possibly showing. That said, this "stuff" is not cheap, so I want to do it right the first time, and am looking for a bit of advice, altho I have also consulted my trainer. He is not as into the "pretty" and "match" as I am.
I also have a major store credit from a tack shop, which helps immensely.
So, I have a black horse, 2 white rear stockings. I have SMB Ventech Elite front boots in black I use for every day, but am looking at getting white ones for the fronts for shows. THoughts? Do I need the Elites or can I go with a less expensive SMB?
Schutz reins-3/8" or 1/2? Waterloop ends, and my trainer says soak them in olive oil? That one is new by me.......
Headstall-want a good one I can use every day and for show. I hate switching the bit all the time, and with a Balding, I cannot get 2. Not too "blingy", and my saddle is a Bob's, on the light side of medium oil color with a cream seat, this one: Bobs Custom KR Reiner 16'' seat QH Bars | eBay
So I am looking at these headstalls: Rawhide Trimmed Headstalls with Pinwheel Conchos | Horse Tack
OR Basket Stamped Headstall with Rust/Silver Buckles & Conchos | Horse Tack
Will need a bit hobble to match, depending on which headstall I end up with, as well as a curb.
I want a Yucca Flats blanket, but that will have to wait......For now we have a cornflower blue one and a multi color that looks sort of like a Yucca flats, with blue and red......
Anything else you can think of? Just need to get it all in place before May.
