From Endurance to Dressage
How Could I Resist?
The bigger question is: How can you?!?!?!
I like my two C4 belts. They're funky and whimsical, yet still practical. Two is simply not enough. When I squealed in delight upon seeing the Facebook post, my husband cocked an eyebrow and asked me rhetorically if I didn't have enough belts already. No was my simple response. Just like I don't have enough pairs of breeches or sun shirts either.
So which belts did I order? The two that I've talked about of course!
If you want one, or make that TWO, you'd better hurry. The sale ends tomorrow at midnight. If you get one, let me know which combos you picked. If you can't swing it this time, which combo would you pick? I love seeing the combinations that I wouldn't think of myself.
About the Writer and Rider
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.
