So, since I don't feel like dwelling on it, we're going steal an idea from LWilliams. While we don't have nearly the tack inventory she does, I thought it might be fun to recap our current gear, since it's changed a bit lately. It's basic and budget conscious, but it works for us.
-County Competitor dressage
-County Pro-Fit CC (fingers crossed it stays!)
-Stubben Juventus jump (was Ginger's, then Bridget's...tree is twisted now so it sits until I can bear to toss it.)
|Ginger tack modeling.|
-Stubben Leitrim bridle (Ginger)
-Bobby's dressage bridle (Bridget)
-Mondega hunter bridle (Bridget and Ginger)
-Cheap bridles x2. Greenhawk Connemara brand. Used for rainy, gross days, trail riding, swimming, XC clinics where I think loose horse might be a possibility ;) Oh, and with my western saddle, because I have no pride.
-A loose ring french link for each pony.
-An eggbutt snaffle for each pony.
-So many. I have tiny hands, and like rubber lined reins. There was some trial and error involved here!
-Schockemohle dressage girth
-Cheap fleece lined regular girth
-cheap brown neoprene regular girth
-HDR leather girth.
Of these, both ponies love the cheap fleece one. I do need a better girth. I tried the County logic one and the total saddle fit one and didn't notice a difference worth paying for.
I've eliminated the hoard, and gone for the most part with 'boring'. Boring, matching stuff is actually good in a large barn, I always know which pad is mine!
-Black with grey trim jump pads x 3, matching dressage pad x 1.
-White pads jumping x1, dressage x 1
-Teal with navy dressage pad x 1. Cause I love it.
-Pro Fit shimmable pad. For all those uneven shoulders.
|Black and grey pads for the win|
So shameful, 1 pair of black Woof Wear XC boots. And that's it.
3 point breastplates x2. For all those trail riding adventures. Ginger's is a cheap HDR, Bridget's a cheap stripy elastic Greenhawk model.
|This is why we don't have pretty pictures. Thanks for trying, Midge.|
