I do have a western saddle, several of them, and I've ridden western a lot back in Arizona. I like it, but I never quite feel the horse beneath like i do in my jumping or dressage saddles. Different saddles and styles for different purposes. I might get an Aussie saddle, since I don't rope, the horn just gets in my way.
Shows how much I don't know about English riding! I do remember my one and only English riding lesson now: my lower legs were numb for days!
That Jeep is awesome--and it'll be even prettier with mud on it!

I didn't know you had a Jeep! Women in 4x4s are hot!

But...but...but...you can't call a 4x4 pretty, that's just not right.

Just got it Saturday! A "Deep Cherry Red with crystal pearl coat jeep" can't NOT be pretty.
What didn't seem quite right was how many wranglers had automatic transmissions. That seems kind of weird to me.

I had a wrangler several years ago and loved it but it wasn't a great car to have with kids. Now the kids are pretty much grown so this one is to have FUN with.

Honk if you see a redhead in a red jeep around town!

Hey, Misty!

Re. the saddle conundrum: Have you tried an endurance saddle? I'm using a...ummm...I think it's a Big Horn endurance saddle for trail riding. It has the pommel for a little more security than my dressage saddle, but it doesn't have that evil horn that catches my shirt and pokes me in my belly. I'm finding it to be a good thing for my little mare who aspires to be a rodeo queen!

BTW, I now have Jeep envy.

They look like Aussie saddles. Maybe they're lighter for endurance riding?
Stubben makes an incredible trail saddle and it would feel more normal to me than a wide and thick western saddle but it's expensive! And i have a ton of saddles in the tack room. I need to sell some.

Don't hate me because my jeep is beautiful!

PS: did you ever join USPC?. We rejoined last week. This time I'm taking it easy!

Since, in my area the snow is just melting, I'm now waiting for the Morel mushroom's to pop up, about 2 more weeks and we should have plenty. In the mean time picking up all the sticks that the dog's thought would look better in my front yard, instead of the forest.

Also, getting the Harley (my husband's other women) polished and ready to ride.

Spring is just a muddy mess around here, can't wait for June!!!

Great thread CFF! So does this mean you're going to start building the cabin this year?

Make that vegetable garden? Have brunch at an outdoor cafe? First on my list (which I may actually be able to do soon) is go to the Floating Restaurant in Hope for an outdoor lunch!

(We've had some threads recently with a few posters venting/agonizing about one thing or another. Not that that is out of place per se, but I just thought I'd start a happy-happy Pollyanna thread...unless the first thing you're looking forward to doing is vent! )
I kinda have to laugh a little everytime I read the title of this thread because what I always looked forward to the MOST, when I lived up there, was just being able to drive my vehicle all the way up our road to our house! lol From Oct. to late April it was walk/4 wheel ATV/cross country ski to our vehicles two miles down the road. Getting things home could be a real pain sometimes but, luckily for me, I was able to do a big stockup before the snow flew to keep it to a minimum.

Other than that I always looked forward to getting my garden(s) in and being able to relax on the (not snow covered!) deck!

Will do! It's kinda funny...in more "civilized" areas, sports cars are the mid-life crisis vehicle of choice. Out this-a-way, it's Jeeps, ATVs and dirt bikes! (and of course I include myself in the mid-life crisis comment!) All are more fun than a Vette. On a dirt road, anyway.
