Wish List

A list of all the things I have my eye on for future purchase! 

Amazingly enough this list is dwindling. When I first started purchasing things for my dressage pony I had a huge thing for saddle pads and I think part of it was that they were affordable and fun. Since I've been able to save up and purchase nicer equipment such as saddles, bridles, girths etc as well as building up a nice saddle pad collection I've become more interested in nice riding clothes. Now that's a lot of what's on my list but some of the other more "silly" items here are things I'll slowly save up for as well.

B Vertigo Breeches

I don't think I'll end up purchasing other high quality breeches at this point since these are just my favorite. Between the amazing fit, craftsmanship, and material used I'm a huge B Vertigo fangirl.

These are all $180 and up so definitely something to save up for!




Dress Boots
With pony's small roundish sides typically dressage dress boots would make it really tough for me to the right amount of contact with her sides but it would be nice to have a pair of dress boots vs. field boots. I'll probably find something more catered to jumpers with a softer calf just so that I can really get my leg around my pony.





Asmar Long Sleeve T
I have one of these but have been wanting another, in Navy for a REALLY long time. It just hasn't happened yet but it's on the list.



Nice Brush Set
I'm totally ogling a set of these brushes with the colored leather custom hand straps


Another Bridle
Certainly not anytime soon but at some point I'd really love to have another bridle. I think bridles are gorgeous things and when I was purchasing my PS of Sweden Flying Change bridle I really waffled between that one and the Chameleon. At some point it would be fun to have both!


Browbands
Of course now that I have a PS of Sweden bridle and another on my wishlist I'd love to get more of their Clickit browbands. I did get a couple more recently but one can never have too many sparkly browbands!



Back On Track Quickwraps
I've also wanted these for a really long time and not that long ago Horze was having an amazing sale on them. Alas, they just weren't on my list of needed items, only wanted so I held off.

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.

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…
