First thing’s first, let’s help some peeps out!
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!
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!??
