yikes that is huge!

We lived in Texas from 2004-2009 and I am horrified by the images on the news from Hurricane Harvey.  One of my favorite websites in the world (Go Fug Yourself is a treasure of a site and I followed the creators from when they did TWOP as well so if you don’t read GFY start now!! They are hilarious!!) has a list of ways to help Hurricane Harvey victims (both four legged and two legged so go here for more information!)

I just can’t imagine what is going on for all those people who are suffering from this storm. I hope it leaves sooner rather than later. And I hope the900facebookpony gets out today and enjoys her time in Europe (Be safe Amanda)!!

Events, and Lessons, and Us Not Ready…OH MY!

giphy (1)Meanwhile on Remus news, we have a Cross Country Schooling with Sally tomorrow night (Natch Rain is in the forecast here OF COURSE) SIGH. I signed up for Blue Goose CT on Sat and then of course Fair Hill is a week from Sat. Are we ready? NOPE not a bit. But good friends are going to both events so a good time will be had!!

Still Looking for a Saddle…It Is Inconceivable!

I had a Stubben to try from a friend (Just a Siegfried) but the billets are so short I need my longer girth which is home still. So I didn’t even sit in it yet.

I did try a barn mate’s Prestige Nona Garson and it fit Remus well and I hopped on it and walked, trotted, cantered in it last week. The seat was a bit hard (Which was odd cause it felt squishy when I touched it so maybe my butt is delicate? LOL) but it rode well. Going to try to ride in a jump lesson with it and if I like it might start looking for a Prestige. Nothing else seems to fit Remus.

My dressage saddle ended up at a friend’s who wanted it badly but can’t swing it but one of her barn mates is trying it so hoping I sell that locally (even though I won’t make as much) rather than consignment. We shall see…she does like it a lot so fingers crossed!!

That will help the saddle search immensely. Money always helps am I right!??

  1. Good luck on the saddle hunt! I concur with the Prestiges lol. Amber really loves hers. I’m hoping the Nona Garson works for you! If nothing else, here’s a website to consider (http://www.prestigesaddlesusa.com/) potentially looking for something. I think I may end up getting a dressage saddle from them – they can get it in BROWN and I still love the idea of brown dressage tack lol. Hope this helps! Unless I’m being that person that’s TOO helpful then tell me to stop lol.

      1. At least in Europe I think brown is coming back ‘in’ lol Yes it’s a prestige! If you look up jump saddles on that site I sent you, mine is on the second page – the Sinead D jump. But they even carry the larger sizes; Amber needs a 36 (xwide) so remus might be a 36 or a 35?

      1. Awww! As for saddle shopping, it’s just the whole shebang. Even if you have it on trial, a few days isn’t always enough, especially if you have a stoic horse.

  2. Poor Poor Houston! I have so many friends there- things are rough and only getting rougher :(.

    Ack bummer your XC schooling got cancelled. Saddle shopping is the pits- I’m hopefully getting my saddle checked soon and I’m nervous they will say it needs to be replaced. Fingers crossed for your!
