From Endurance to Dressage
I think I am up to nine C4 belts. How could I possibly need another? I am not sure what my fascination is with these pieces of plastic strapping, but it is deeply rooted. It doesn't help that they add new designs just about daily.
To my credit, I have been wanting the black sugar skulls since it was introduced last October. When I went to order it, it was sold out. Earlier this month, they brought it back with added background colors. I couldn't stand it; I had to have it.
As luck would have it, C4 offered a buy one get one free deal, so I tossed in that cute snaffle bit belt to go along with it. Since that one was free, I don't feel bad about it.
Hopefully, I can resist C4's next promotion or newest design. I just saw that they added some new equestrian styles though ... somebody help me!

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.
