I have not bought a new vest. I talked it about a while ago and then I freaking moved to TENNESSEE where we barely even know what eventing is! HA.
I actually borrowed someone’s vest for the clinic the other month. Back of my mind, I was thinking….yeah might want to get that back on the list. And guess what? I signed up for an event. It is in little over 3 weeks or so? And… I have no saddle, no trailer, and no eventing vest. OOPS! Ut oh. I am working on the saddle and trailer right now. BUT…..anyway…
Remus and I are signed up for Intro Starter at Dunnebeck Horse Trails in September. We also have a clinic later in September, same instructor as before. Things are happening. YAY.
Back to the vests! I need one. Here lies my issue. I am a fat girl. I am wide as I am tall. I am not skinny. Skinny passed me about forty years ago. The only one that fit me okay are the Tipperarys and even the Large is a stretch (big boobs are a pain in the butt just saying, the rest of me doesn’t help). And even with a Tipp, I am worried an XL may be too tall for me (I am short so am not tall)! I don’t jump big jumps and don’t plan on it so don’t need fancy dancy one but I need a vest. (It is actually optional for my division but still…)
I can order a different one but the sizing on all the other brands really confuse me. So if you were as rotund as a beach ball what would your choice be? (Amanda I am rereading your blog posts now about vests!).
Give me some ideas. I only have a few weeks to make this happen! Anyone with an Airowear how do the sizes go? Remember. SHORT ROTUND PERSON! ARGHHHHHHH
Thanks for any help! Btw, I literally had to just look on a calendar just to see what freaking day it is. It is Thursday.
Happy Thursday! I am a mess!
