'Cause Every Western Horse Needs...

I've mentioned before (countless times I'm certain) that Suzie is not an English horse.

I repeat:

NOT. AN. ENGLISH. HORSE.


But yet, the inner tack-hoe in me can't seem to pass up a good deal.

The tack-hoe in me makes excuses and what benefits I'll reap in purchasing said object.


Behold,

Bates Innova.

In roughly ten to fourteen days these beast of a saddle will be joining my collection simply for the fact I cannot contain myself. Just start calling Suzie, "Valegra".

    1. I'm excited to try it out and see how it feels. A friend of mine bought the exact same one and she's short like me and says it fits her very well!

      Sorry to hear your jump saddle might not work :(

  4. Can't lie, your horse doesn't need to be an "english horse" to ride english. My previous horse was a halter-bred QH and we did hunters. He moved like a giraffe and never placed in under saddle stuff, but was quiet and consistent enough to do fine in lower-level over fences!
