Very sadly, this week’s view is one that will never be able to be repeated. One of our readers, Haley, sent us this photo taken from her horse, Dan. Tragically, Dan had to be put down last month after coming in from the field with mild colic, which progressed to colic surgery, and ultimately it became in the horse’s best interest to put him down. Thanks to Haley for submitting, I know I am not alone in saying that we are all very sorry for her loss.
As a quick note from our friends and sponsors at World Equestrian Brands: Does your horse love the decadently soft calfskin of his Vespucci bridle? He’s in luck, then, because that same lovely leather is available in the form of our Vespucci girths. The short girths are available in black as well as brown and oakbark to accommodate monoflap jumping saddles as well as dressage. The long girths come in brown or oakbark with a subtle centered D-ring and dark elastic to match the leather for a seamless and finished look. SRP $155 for short and $175 for long.
