Reading Round Up – February

Reading Round Up – February

If I could best describe my reading pattern lately, it’d be horribly tragic memoir followed by something I hope will make me laugh. February was no exception. I ended January’s round up with telling y’all about “The Kiss”, which disturbed me to the point that I had to immediately jump to something light. “We all accept too easily that life has to be hard and forget to make sure we have the most fun we can.” – Amy Schumer The Girl…

Product Review – Sox Trot

Product Review – Sox Trot

One of my favorite articles of equestrian clothing is a good boot sock. I blame the NCSU Equestrian team for this. When I went to my first IHSA show in the first pair of legit leather field boots I ever owned, my calves were aching underneath from the thick ski socks I was wearing underneath. As I walked around before and after my class, I noticed most other girls were wearing really colorful socks with Sperrys. My teammate Rebecca had…

Product Review – Cool Boots

Product Review – Cool Boots

I’ve wanted ice boots for Simon for a long time.  I feel like it’s important to do everything reasonably in my power to keep my horse sound and happy for as long as I can.  To me, icing after jumping & hard rides on the front tendons is a pretty solid idea.  Will this prohibit him from ever breaking?  No.  Will it help a little bit?  I think so. So with a Christmas gift card in tow, I ordered the…

Product Review – Horze Lyon Synthetic Leather Gloves

Product Review – Horze Lyon Synthetic Leather Gloves

Horze recently asked me to review some products, which made me super happy because I’m still on a indefinite spending freeze and there have been no new shiny things to play with.  Thanks Horze!  That being said, these are all still my opinions on the products – first up, riding gloves! Traditionally, I’m not a glove person.  Give me the option and I will go gloveless for schooling and show.  I traditionally hate how bulky gloves make my hands feel, but…

Columbia Omni-Freeze Sun Shirt Review

Columbia Omni-Freeze Sun Shirt Review

Just like everyone else, I’ve been lusting after all the pretty show shirts that are becoming super popular.  Being really light skinned (I’m essentially Norweigan) and living in the land of 300 days of sunshine, I feel like a sun shirt is a fair purchase.  That being said, I’m also broke.  I have a $50 cap for how much I’m willing to spend on a riding shirt for schooling purposes only. That knocks out all the major brands that everyone…

Noble Outfitters Socks Review

Noble Outfitters Socks Review

Let’s talk about socks!  I was never one of those kids who was like “aw, socks?!?” when holidays came around, because I heart socks.  I have springer spaniel socks, socks for holidays, socks with ponies, socks with ice skating penguins and of course… lots of boot socks.  I especially heart boot socks. So when Noble Outfitters contacted me and asked if I’d like to review something, I said… socks! They sent two pairs which I will both review today, first…

Absorbine UltraShield Fly Spray Review

Absorbine UltraShield Fly Spray Review

Things I enjoy in life: riding my horse, diet coke, cool spring breeze, fancy stitch tack. Things I don’t enjoy in life: humidity, extreme dust, Friday afternoon meetings, bad drivers, and FLIES!!! To help troubleshoot the flies issue, Absorbine sent me three of their UltraShield fly sprays to review – UltraShield Sport, UltraShield Sport Continuous Spray (Aerosol), and UltraShield Red.    I’ve been using these three products for about a month now, and have gathered my thoughts for you dear readers who may dislike…
