What girl doesn't need a....

purple saddle?!!!

This is Makenna's 1st saddle! Yes it is a barrel saddle. Yes it has a purple ostrich seat and accents. Yes its tiny and going to look so funny on my big fat horse!

I wanted a barrel saddle for her first saddle because they are higher in the front and back so it will set her in there more securely. When my mom sent me a text that she found a PURPLE tiny barrel saddle on tacktrader.com, I had to check it out. I contacted the lady IMMEDIATELY and its ours! YAY:)

I will take pics when this fabulous saddle finally makes its way from Georgia to Minnesota and onto Faith's back. We're definitely going to need the BIG GIRL cinch to get it all the way around Faith:) Now I need to shop for some boots and a helmet.

(Yes I'm going to be one of those parents who insists on the kids wearing a helmet. Did I wear a helmet? Hell no! Would I wear a helmet now to ride? An even bigger HELL NO! BUT I know how to ride + I know my horse. I do know that accidents can happen but I'm pretty good at tuck and roll + there's not a whole lot of action in the indoor arena. I'm just saying...)

That is the cutest saddle I've ever seen and I'm not really a horse person. Can't wait to see pics of her riding!
