From Endurance to Dressage
I know ... I just couldn't resist. I paid for half of the first one with a gift certificate, so it didn't feel like I was spending that much. I paid full price for this one, but oh, it's sooooo pretty. So between the two, I've only spent $60.
The truth is that the orange C4 was me just needing to go a little out of my comfort zone, step out of my box, be a little daring. It's a fun belt, but it probably won't go with very much. It did look super nice with my peach and orange Kastel sun shirt though.
This belt is much more my style. It is quite tasteful in person, and the black buckle looks much more human-sized than does the super hero white one. If you end up purchasing a C4 Belt of your own that is not a solid color, just know that the pattern appears on the street side of the strap only, not the inside.
The black buckle is the "combo is of the week" which means a belt and black buckle pair are only $33.39 (plus shipping). The combo of the week changes each Monday, so if you like the black buckle pairing, get it this weekend.
C4 sent me a 20% off coupon with this belt, and that Bear Flag belt is still calling my name, but the more I look at the combos, the navy plaid also has my name all over it. Maybe next month?!?!?!

I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
