Guess who has a custom saddle on order?
I have no idea when it will actually arrive but it feels good to get the order put in. Apparently it could be as early as late December but I’m not holding my breath, I also wouldn’t mind a bit more time to accumulate funds for the remaining balance…. :)
My saddle order was placed on November 9th, which is sort of a special date. That’s the date that I sent an e-transfer to a complete stranger across the country for Henry five years ago.
I been reflecting a lot on how we’ve gone from unhandled/terrified weanling & noob weanling owner to sensible bareback citizen grown-up horse & slightly less nooby green horse rider.
The journey between those two points has taught me so much about horsemanship and about myself as a human being. I’m really proud of us when I think about it. I will probably do a more in depth post in future on this when the thoughts have formulated more in my brain!
There certainly have been struggles, and we aren't perfect. But if I could do it over again, I would do it all over again :)
I am so excited for 2018 and our new saddle!!
