Being Serious About Riding Doesn’t Mean You Can’t Have Fun

While in Zurich I was becoming very horsey deprived.  When I visited a wildlife park I was enamored with the Przewalski horses even though they weren’t all that exciting, just because they were equines.  Well, on the last day my husband and I decided to waste some time in the mall next to our hotel.  At the top floor there it was….a pet store with a horse section!

I dragged my husband over there.  Some of the stuff was more expensive than in the states but some were cheaper.  One thing that caught my eye was a dressage bridle, but not just any dressage bridle.  This one was London color (light) with reddish brown edging and, wait for it…. a crystal browband.  I fell in love.  On the normal side, it came with reins, was very soft leather, well made, and had a padded crown in addition to the padded browband and noseband.  And, it was very well priced.  Of course, I bought it.

I will only use it for schooling but I put it on PJ today and he looks fabulous, if I do say so myself.   The picture below is of him in his new bridle.  It may not be what every dressage rider dreams of but it makes me smile.
