I intended to get Vienna reins, a surcingle, and an oversize cavesson for longeing, but their prices were slightly more expensive compared to what I researched online (and they didn't have Vienna reins), so I'm holding on that stuff for now. Hooray for being cheap! I did get a short-sleeved show shirt (for the awesome price of $25), some Lexol leather spray, a hairnet and something I never would buy for myself...men's Western boots.
|Oh yeah. Ready to show.|
Yup! Byron is going to start taking lessons with me in the near future now that he has the gear. He didn't want to go the paddock boot route (even though they are cheaper! tear) because he dreams of being a badass cowboy. Even though he'll be riding English...the saddle does not make the cowboy. And neither do the cows, because Gentle Giants doesn't have any. And after a childhood incident when a barn owner's pet steer (yeah, I know. Doesn't make sense to me either) cornered me in a tack room and rammed me in the knees with his head over and over, I reeeeeally don't like cows.
|Byron breaks in his boots by playing Madden. That's how it works, right?|

|Not sure why the ventilation is halfway down the sleeve. I don't sweat there.|
|Just like this! Didn't take a picture while driving of course.|
