    total shot in the dark here, but maybe the "G" is because it is a Butet made for Guibert, and the 18 is for 18" (as in the size) ?

    Don't worry, Guibert is a lovely store in Paris that carries Butet and their leather goods are very high end. Although I have never bought a Butet from them, I would imagine that it is totally normal...

    two suggestions

    1) shorten your stirrups
    2) when schooling, put a stirrup leather around the horse's neck (for holding on)

    I would think that anyone going to Europe to find a horse would already have an inside track or (more likely) have a trainer with an inside track. Another middle man? In my mind, a tough sell.
