Yay! My bridle fits the new mare! (and I had some lessons)
So I saw my bridle all adjusted and shiny on Polly today...I just can't express how happy I am it fits her. It is one of the old Crosby plain raised, and the leather is just great so I didn't want to give it up.
We had our 3rd jump lesson today, where I promptly proceeded to try and kill us while trotting in/cantering out of our first line ever. Ever have your brain waves get in the way? She was so good about it though...
After the first 2 tries we got it together, and it ended up really pretty coming out over the oxer. So that made me super happy. What a difference to be on a horse with an engine where you have to be soft and "whoa" a little down the lines!
Anyone ever have the fun of going from slow/short strided to forward/gigantor strided? It's a little bit of an adjustment, but I sure love her!
"Look, I'm trying not to test the durability of the arena with my face!" (Because only GM can do that.)
That's awesome! I hope you have some pictures so share.
And I understand how excited you are about your bridle! I sold my big bridle with my gelding and I am kicking myself! I thought I would have a much smaller horse and instead I fell in love with a horse with a huge head and I want my lovely schooling bridle back!
