I was so proud of myself this spring when I found a saddle for J at a used tack sale for $30. When I looked it over, it was missing 1 billet strap, but the other 2 looked fine.
Had the saddle fitter take a look at hubby's Crosby & J's for fit. Found out hubby's had a broken tree, and J's had a cracked tree, but would be fine for what she was doing and the amount of time she'd be using it.
So it's now a month before fair, I have $0 budget left for anything other than the ER vet fund, and guess what breaks this weekend?? Yep, the other 2 billets. WHEN J WAS RIDING!!!
So much for my awesome shopping prowess
A good friend has a saddle she can use for the rest of the year thankfully, but she isn't very comfortable in it, so this will be interesting for sure. And to top it off, I messed up on J's showmanship jacket that I'm making, so that a cluster right now too
I don't want to play anymore.
