So we headed into Dover, I glanced at the shirts and jackets. I so want one of those nice quilted looking jackets. Some have a diamond pattern while one I saw had little horseshoes on it. I thought it was very cute. Steve commented about how there is not much clothing for men. That's an interesting thought, where are we going to find riding gear for Steve? There was a whole rack of helmets. I eventually want to get another helmet at some point, one that is casual and more low profile, something that would work for trail riding. I like the brown leather look Troxel helmet. I love the one I have but I like variety too!
We checked out some of the other gear they had such as blankets, saddle pads and bridles. I'm pretty set on the Wintec Dressage 500 now, so glad I saw it in person. I asked one of the show room people about fitting it to a horse and they have a trial option where you can buy the saddle and "try" it out. It has to not show wear and tear or anything like that if you return it so I guess a very clean horse and limited riding to check the fit is all you can do. The other good thing about the Wintec is the adjustable gullet. You can fit the horse with the perfect fit over the withers and then as they build muscle or change as they age you can always adjust the saddle. I'm pretty happy! Can't wait to go shopping for my future horse!
