    I figure I'll give her a chance.....As long as she's regular. I had pretty much given up on the blog when posts were weeks apart, so I'm glad to have something to read again.

    I see a ton of people showing at the lower levels in All Purpose or CC saddles in all phases- I personally prefer a Dressage saddle for Dressage, but you shouldn't feel rushed or obligated to get...
