The ultimate reason for be putting together this blog in the first place was in the hopes of conjuring up some kind of help or sponsorship for a saddle for Amber or at the very least use this platform to get ideas for making some money to use towards a saddle… My Saddle Fund – makes sense doesn’t it?
The reason behind me doing this is pretty simple but the actual implementation – not so much… I was told many years ago even before I bought Amber that buying a saddle would cost me a lot more than buying a horse – that’s if I wanted a decent one – and that it would require some hard work and lots of saving. The blog was ultimately set up for this reason although it molded into more of a story about our journey – Amber and I – which is not a bad thing in itself.
I don’t I get any exposure on this site though – which is what I was ultimately working towards; pretty much no one reads this blog at all and I was not very successful in utilizing this forum or blogging enough to make it viable..
That was until I got offered an opportunity to do work for a equine boutique called Equestrian House in return for horse products. I did not claim for a while as I was hoping to save up enough “credits” to cash in for a saddle. It seemed out of reach initially and meant it would take up to two years of work to be able to get something like a saddle in return.
Bu now the opportunity for getting my own saddle is closer than it has ever been.. The last few months have required a lot hard work from my side, many hours of slogging away and giving up a lot of my free time and even not being able to ride weekends – which is the only time I can ride – but if this works out it will be worth all the blood, sweat and tears!! 🙂
I have put it out to the universe and now all I hope to hear is confirmation 🙂
