I am a videographer in Portland, Oregon with a love for all things horses. Originally from Minnesota, my childhood was spent on racetracks across the Midwest. I am currently training my dream horse with hopes of excelling at dressage and Parelli. I have a Cairn Terrier, Ellie, and an old cat named Winston. I am fortunate to have a pretty nice boyfriend who understands and supports my love of horses. My blog helps keep a record of my successes and failures and helps friends and family enjoy the journey with me.
Linda over at Glisan Street Saddlery in Portland let me take home a Bates Caprilli and a Wintec Pro. I tried both this weekend and I think I like the Wintec better and it is a third the price! I have a lesson tomorrow and going to have my trainer take a look. I rode it the Wintec today and think that is my saddle. It feels really great and I like that the stirrup straps don't have buckles that rub on your inner thigh. I also like the synthetic fabric so I don't have to clean it and I like how you kind of "stick" to it. This is the first saddle I have bought for myself, so I am excited to get something that fits perfectly.
