From Endurance to Dressage
To Bling, or Not to Bling
Poor Speedy. No bling (yet) for the gray pony. The browband, which turned out to be quite pretty, is just a smidge too big. I chose this one, even though it didn't come in cob, because several reviewers said it ran a bit small. Uh … no, it didn't.
It looks great on Sydney though, so it's a keeper. I am on the hunt for a new browband for Speedy and have one in mind. It's pricier than this one though, so it might be a month or two before I go ahead and order it.
In the mean time, here's Sydney's new browband!

Very nice! A bit of excitement, but not overly glitzy!

I love it how Sydney gets all the things that don't fit Speedy! It looks great on both of them, though. Maybe you need two? ;)

It is super classy.

That is so not bling! It looks gorgeous on Sydney, but you need a serious lesson in bling! "People on horses" browbands are the best. Love reading your blog!

Hey now!!!! Remember, this is ME, queen of all things subtle and plain. :0) Having a browband that didn't come with the bridle is breaking all kinds of rules for me.

It's okay to be frivolous once in awhile... Love your reply, lol!

I may need more than riding instruction. I probably need help in the accessorizing department as well. Something tells me that between you, Morgan, and Jen, I could be decked out head to toe in some serious dazzle! ;0)

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.
