From Endurance to Dressage
Just before I went to bed last night, I got an email from C4 Belts about a BOGO sale. I could barely sleep.
I have a pile of C4 Belts already and don't actually need another one, but BOGO sales are hard for me to resist. I am a sucker for perceived value. As soon as I got up, I eagerly loaded my shopping cart with a turquoise dressage belt and a hot pink Stephen Gamson.
I typed in the BOGO code and ... nothing. I typed it in again, still nothing. Ultimately, I got an error message saying the code was invalid. Whomp, whomp.
My shopping cart is still full, but I hate it when a discount doesn't work. I know C4 will get it fixed, but I don't have time this morning to get it sorted out. I'll send them an email and then call if no response. Maybe it's just too early in the morning for the code to work.
Let me know if you use the code and have better luck than I do. Until then, maybe it's the Universe's way of telling me that I don't really need to add to my pile of belts. My husband would agree.
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.
