My saddle came in! It gets delivered and fitted Wednesday night. No more borrowing my trainer's saddle! No more showing up for a lesson and having to wait until the person using the saddle is done. No more trying to find shims for my half pad. I am now the proud owner of a saddle. Or at least as of Wednesday I will be. Mostly I'm just dancing around chanting 'Saddle saddle saddle saddle saddle saddle' like a total freak. But I don't care, 'cause I'll be a freak with a saddle.

Also, I only rode once last week due to a rash of people going in the hospital. First my best friend, then my mom, then my dad. All for unrelated things. Everyone is now home and doing fine (fingers crossed) but I spent the last few weeks just trying to hold it together. Yesterday was the first time I had ridden since last Sunday. The pony was a star.
