|I did ride Suzie tackless last Saturday, though.|
In that same breath, I've been anxious to ride my mare, but there are a few factors playing into my "no riding" mantra at the moment:
- The outdoor arena I normally school in does not get cleared in the Winter, so it is unrideable.
- The closest indoor facility is a 45min drive and the horse trailer still needs electrical wiring (so that's a no go).
- The roadways out where the horses are boarded are still slick with ice, so it would be quite unsafe to try and hack out around vehicles on a slippery road.
- The last 5 days have seen freezing rain, so... yeah.
|Please, for the love of all that is sacred, do not judge the weird|
bump over my crotch or the fact I am wearing mis-matched
socks. I literally just got home from work and threw it all on.
I will have to wear it around a bit more and let the fabric "mold" to me a bit more and ride in it to see if the sleeves need to be tailored, but other than that, it seems like a good fit. More to come later with a full review.
|She was NOT in the mood for posing and this|
was the best photo I got.
The halter itself was really supple coming out of the box, but I noticed it was pretty large and hung quite low on Suzie's face. I've punched a few holes on the crown-piece (one punch on either side) so hopefully it'll change the fit and I won't have to sell it. The halter-tag is still in the mail coming from another shop, so I'll update once I get it installed (and also better photos to come!).
|I didn't realize I had ordered a fucking sleeping|
bag instead of a bridle bag.
In a sick twist of hilarity, the bridle bag is apparently an "Extra Large". I had no idea when I ordered it and it could literally fit several Clydesdale bridles in it if necessary. Since I don't own a Clydesdale, I could sleep in it at horse shows if I get really cold!
