Quick update

Not much really has been going on since my last update last week regarding my decision to attend a hunter/jumper show in a couple weeks. Basically I’m just trying to get my ducks in a row so I won’t embarrass myself once I’m there quite as much. Mostly this means tracking down tack that hasn’t been used in a while (oh, hello, plain brown bridle) and buy a whole bunch of other junk.

These purchases include open front boots (because Brushing boots don’t seem necessary for straight jumpers), ratcatcher shirt for me (thank you Tack of the Day, now please send it to me in time!), and tan full seats.

Obviously not Foster's legs.. Foster's legs are white, in case you hadn't noticed :)

And I suppose since I felt like I hadn’t spent enough money already, I have set up two lessons- another dressage lesson with Eliza for later in the month, and one with a new-to-me trainer who also happens to be an up-and-coming international eventer! This exciting event happens Wednesday, and I’m super hopeful that they like Foster and impart plenty of jumping wisdom on us. We need it!

Lesson recap to come!

  1. Didn’t see your follow up comments on the other post, whoops! You CAN wear grey breeches in the jumpers, that’s totally fine. In the hunters, they need to be tan (and really should be knee patch but FS is doable). Us jumpers like open front boots so if the horse whacks a pole, they feel it and therefore won’t whack it again… in theory.

    • Yay on the grey jods for jumpers- I just love the way it looks! And the tan full seats I bought are quite discreet- no different colored bottom on them, so hopefully the hunter gods will still smile down on me! *And* I’ve even tracked down a fitted pad! 🙂

      I’m looking forward to exposing Foster to the different type of jumps that are in the hunter arena- should be interesting! Will get pics of us in our hunter getup! 😀
