haha :)

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

I have a Collegiate Graduate with the EZ change gullet system and have been very happy with it. Right now it has the extra wide gullet plate in for my wide quarter horse. I have changed plates and used it on different horses with good results. My trainer hates Wintecs, but I sat on one in a tack shop once, and it sure was comfortable!

If you have a good idea what you want and don't have a lot to spend, you really should try e-bay. It's kind of hard for a saddle, since you can't return it, but with the EZ change system you should be all right. And definitely for a bridel. I'd rather get a good used bridle from e-bay than a cheap new one. the cheap ones are like cardboard and you can never get the leather soft.

good luck!

Look and see if the bridle you are currently using has a size marked on it. My Morgan wears a cob sized bridle, there's no way to punch enough holes in a horse sized, his head is too small.

Ask your trainer to help you figure out sizes. If your trainer can't/won't, I'd be looking for another trainer. One of the first things mine did with both of my horses was completely measure, try tack on and make me a complete list of what sizes and which pieces of tack I needed to purchase.
