Are you going to the 2009 AERC National Convention? If so, keep your eyes open for me and Aaruba. We'll be on a poster in the Stonewall Saddle Company booth.
You might recall that we had a bit of trouble with our first photo shoot for this poster. The second wasn't a whole lot better:
This shot has potential...except that my partner seems to be snoozing.
NOW whose eyes are closed? How's this for a new logo?
Stonewall Saddles: Secure Enough to Sleep In
Hmm. It has a nice ring.
Excuse us, we're having a temper tantrum. (But I'm smiling!)
Where's Ichabod Crane when you need him?
I don't even know what to say.
Oh, here's a nice shot! Except...what's that hanging out of Aaruba's mouth? I told him, no bubblegum on the set!
Finally, we managed to snap a lucky winner. Here's a nod to my fellow bitless barefooters in the endurance world -- and helmets off to my gracious sponsor (dismount first, if you please).
Anyway, if you're at the convention, I have two things to say to you:
1) I'm jealous.
2) Be sure to stop by the Stonewall Saddles booth and give owner Jackie Fenaroli a hug from me.
Psst! I think she's giving away business cards with my endurance conversions chart on the back...conveniently sized for your saddlebag. Enjoy!
