(I am going to get the chestnut one). I would take the browband off for shows.
These split reins:
Eventually I hope to get these for his first appearance in the show ring:
(Probably not the saddle though. It is extremely expensive).
Western Saddle Pad-$120.00 (I may not end up getting this pad, BUT I will want a Jewel tone blue of some sort).
Martin Versatility Saddle - 15" Finished Seat
$2,812.50 (same as the saddle pad, I may not end up getting this saddle, and while I would prefer something with more silver for the show ring, I will not be going to the big deal shows until 2016, most likely).
Wow!!! I have got to start saving up for that saddle if I am going to get it by next June. I cannot wait until Ollie and I hit the show ring!!!
