The only way to get through a 24 hour flight to Europe is to get really wasted, subtly.

No one would steal your car, because they would assume some bogan owns it…

Hey :) I know this is cheeky but I was wondering if you could make this question public so that people can reply. I want to know all about WoW saddles but I don’t have many followers so no-one answered my post :( This is not for publicity (hence anonymous) it’s because I’m considering getting one for my horse. Totally get it if you don’t want to help out and I hope I don’t cause offence by sending this to several people – I just want to find out more about the saddles for my horse’s benefit :)

No problem anon, but I am probably no help at all as I haven’t heard of these saddles at all (I’m in NZ).
Sorry!

I think WoW saddles are quite good for strange shaped horses, they have an entirely different sort of tree in them.. they are pricey though, but if your horse doesn’t fit most saddles well then could be worth looking into

Little update on Sydney - Its been a while!!

So after the show jumping last weekend where we didnt have QUITE as much control as I would have liked. I trialed him in a dutch gag - and I only managed to ride him in it for 5 minutes before he ripped a shoe off. but so far so good. it might be a winner.

Sydneys first show is Waimate SJ at the end of September and I’m currently tossing up weather to enter him in the Amateur Rider Series (1.10m - 1.20m) from the get go. Or wait until he done a few 1.10ms at the big shows… But if i want to seriously give it a go i need to have 12 Amateur Rider starts before HOY - i think…
