The good news is that I'm very, very close to closing the deal on the new saddle. We're just figuring out payment methods now.
The bad news is that with the added expense of a new saddle (and probably girth, etc), I probably won't have the money to board Izzy elsewhere this winter. There go my dreams of the indoor.
The other good news is that my trainer owns land further out that she's planning on moving to sometime in the indefinite future. She said today that she's hoping to be out there by the end of November, which means that we might have an indoor arena after all. At least, I'm told there's a small indoor there. I haven't actually been out to that property.
There's not really other bad news. My world is mostly good and happy.
