Sadly the bridle I really wanted sold to someone else... But it really got me looking online for others!
With eventing season approaching fast I really need to pick up a few items, the biggest being a jump bridle!
I have really thought about a Micklem but has been turned off by all the comments on hard to fit and run small. Both of which will not work for his head. He has the drafty width to it but isnt long. After seeing a picture of it on Welsh Cob (Connor!) I started thinking about it again. Your guys thoughts on the whole idea of them and any one have one? Would you go this route instead of the figure 8? If you would go figure 8 which brand would you go to? I would LOVE a Vespucci but with new prices being up towards $300 I would have to wait to buy it for a couple months and just jump in my dressage bridle. Not the classiest thing, especially with our first recognized event at the end of June!
A bridle is definitely first on the list but along with that I hope to accumulate more stuff over the summer also! I would love to get him a pair of Back on Track hock boots and the mesh sheet, a white half pad for my jump saddle, fleece SJ girth, and XC boots (even the hairy guys need a little something!). Im sure there is more in there but that is the 'big' stuff. I LOVE shopping but I just want to be able to buy it all right now! Having no money is no fun for tack shopping!
