Of Questionable Taste

I thought I'd share a few of the things that have caught my eye over the last couple of months including a few things that I'd actually buy ;)

I'm going to start with the things that I'll admire from afar and get to the things that I'm actually kind of interested in.

Things that would cause Jane to disown me:

I have to admit that I'd want to be friends with anyone wearing this
but I'm not quite confident enough to pull it off

I've shared these before but just a bit too blingy for me

Yep, that's a huge cartoon unicorn head on a cooler

Things that would only give Jane a minor heart attack:

This is all perfect but my favorite are the polkadot bell boots! 

This only comes in horse size, I did actually check because I'd probably get one otherwise

Things that I might be able to fly under Jane's hunter ring radar : 

I really actually want to do this!! I've wanted boots like this
for a long time and the matching
baby pink polos and  adorable bell boots are perfect
This C4 belt would be perfect ;) for schooling shows
I am actually planning to get one of these in hot pink from Swanky Saddle for my tack locker

  1. Ha! The tendon boots are awesome and you should totally do it. I am not sure about the unicorn on the pad (but love the pad otherwise). And that tack locker- WOW.

    1. I agree! Yeah, I don't think my home made one will look quite as nice but the monogram plate in hot pink will be snazzy lol

  2. Get all of it. I try to get colors into everything.

  3. Do it all! I absolutely love the bell boots, and the pink laces! I really want a pair of riding/country boots with the front laces. I'm 'guilty' of wearing a similar pink colored belt to ride in. No heart attacks yet ;)

    1. Me tooo!!! Yeah, seems like a cute touch for a schooling show or clinic. Grey, navy blue, black boots, white shirt, and a bright pink belt.

They Came! and Other Updates

I mentioned awhile back that I'd ordered a couple of Mattes pads, one for schooling and one for show, and that they hadn't shown up quite in time for my last show of the year. Then they were scheduled to arrive while I was in NY so I had to have them re-delivered when I got back. They showed up last week but I've been so distracted by farrier related things that I haven't shared yet.


I like them so much!! The dark grey one with the logo is for schooling/clinics etc. The light grey one is for shows. It honestly is a bit flashier than I expected but I think in the show ring it will be ok. I also LOVE the color of both of them :)



I'm really happy with both of them. The only thing I'm not happy about is that they're both longer from spine to girth loop than my other Mattes euro fit pad. I'm hoping that after they got washed a few times they'll shrink a bit but otherwise they'll work, they're just longer than I'd prefer.
Along with my new far…

Long Time, No Post

Last week was nuts. Opening a new site like that just is, especially when you’ve got 25+ brand new employees being trained in a site that is still being moved into. Add to that the fact that I had some short nights, early mornings, and I didn’t sleep that well and I’m still exhausted even after a nice quiet weekend. Pretty much the only thing I did outside of relaxing at home was grocery shopping and going to the barn.

I made it out both Saturday and Sunday and Katai was so good! On Saturday I rode (after lunging :) and just focused on forward, stretching, and lots of bending and flexion. I did a bit of lateral work but otherwise just kept it simple at walk, trot, and canter. Her canter, though, was seriously the best it’s been. I guess the two weeks off was a good break for her! She was really moving forward rather than up into the transitions and was stretchy and carrying herself. Her back felt great and solidly strong and she was really through rather than just running with he…

PS of Sweden Flying Change Bridle Review

I've been doing my seasonal "favorites" posts but haven't had much to review recently since I haven't been purchasing much. Thanks to saving up some money I was able to spend a bit more on presents (for everyone including myself) this Christmas and finally got the PS of Sweden bridle that's been on my list for over a year.

Based on the information I had I decided to order the pony sized bridle. I had messaged asking for the bridle size but never heard back. I really should have messaged again before ordering as you're about to see.

Unfortunately when the bridle arrived and I compared it with a bridle I had at home that fit Katai I was pretty sure it was going to be too small. I brought it out to the barn, tried it on her and sure enough it was way too small. Not even close enough to be able to punch extra holes. So, I brought it back home and got it packaged up to return.

After a couple of emails back and forth and many days later (I shipped it back on 12…
