In which a package makes me happy (much purpleness inside the box!)
The day had not been very delightful...until Jim walked in the house with a package under his arm.
|*ding* You've Got Mail!|
|Jim is patient about adjusting conway buckles.|
Then, we scampered up to the Pretty Tree so he could take some photos of Fiddle wearing her beautiful new gear.
|Sidepull, with bit-hangers|
She looks very noble, doesn't she?
|With the bit attached. The bridle was made-to-measure, and fits perfectly.|
...and check out the BROWBAND!
|Sherry called when they were building the bridle to ask |
if the bling should be sparkley and girley, or shiny and tough.
The Dragon voted for "tough."
Are you totally jealous? You don't need to be jealous!
You can order stuff for yourself from the nicest little tack company in the world:
|American Trail Gear ROCKS!|
Call them! Or email them!
They don't have a shopping cart on the website, because every biothane piece is custom-made to your specifications--color, size, accessories--and they want to talk to you to make sure it gets made right.
Want something unusual? They love that!
Want something elegant and sophisticated? They can do that, too!
Want stuff that wasn't made in China by underpaid children? All ATG Biothane is made in the USA, and assembled by Diana and Sherry (both grownups, with horses of their own).
Want gear that comes with a guarantee? ATG assures customers that you will never have to pay labor for repairs or adjustments to your gear, ever. It's guaranteed for life.
Do I sound enthusiastic about this company, and about my new bridle? Well, I am.
And most important of all:
|"This bridle doesn't make my nose look big!"|
The Dragon approves of it, too!
