Thursday while I was gone to the saddle fitting appointment, USPS tried to deliver my bit.... For some reason, the UK seller sent it requiring a signature, so I ended up having to run back up to our local post office Thursday afternoon to pick it up.
|He bought me another clearance orchid to celebrate 🤣
Anyway, Friday before he got home from work I played musical bits/bridles (and photographed and listed the Custom, go me). I put the turtle top on my PS knockoff and moved the Verbindend to the other half of the paladin/nathe frankenbridle - it's the crownpiece the paladin came on with the Eponia noseband, lol. So Saturday I was ready to test it on the girls bright and early!
|Whoops you can see I only knocked the mud off where the bridle sat lol.
|Someone needs a fresh roach.
I was feeling froggy so I decided to try Cinna in it too lol... Maybe not my best judgement call because she isn't in as regular work as Ruby, but hey, why not? I adjusted the cheek pieces for the bit but I sort of ignored the noseband so let's not look at that 🤣
|Definitely wanted to strangle this one when she snapped my cross ties. Thankfully she was also hard tied (yay for my new washrack posts!) so she couldn't escape and gallivant.
|Poor ded cross ties. Oh well. They were on their very last legs anyway and ordering new ones was on my to-do list anyway, so I did that Sunday.
|"Wait I don't think two-a-days are part of my contractual obligations!" - Ruby, probably lol
Tune in tomorrow for some gorgeous photos from my trail adventure!
