Product Review – Dy’on Anatomic Bridle

Product Review – Dy’on Anatomic Bridle

It should be no secret to anyone reading this blog in the past week or so that I’m pretty head over heels with my new bridle. Still, I thought it merited its own review post so anyone who wanted more information about a slightly less common bridle. My original search for this bridle started at Dover, where I saw one for sale and thought it had a beautiful shape. I wanted a jumper looking bridle that was modern, but not…

Let’s Talk Tall Boots

Let’s Talk Tall Boots

True story – I get minorly depressed whenever I think too long about tall boots.  Why?  Mainly because there are only 1-3 boots that will fit my calf at this moment.  One brand I won’t touch with a ten foot pole, and the other few options just aren’t up to the quality level that I want. Half chaps?  I can buy Ariat half chaps all day long and they fit great.  Tall boots?  Forget it. I lust after brown tall…

The Tale of the French Blue Breeches

The Tale of the French Blue Breeches

Once upon a time, I made very questionable fashion choices when it came to the equestrian world. This is partially due to funds.  In college, I had money for board + farrier + a few lesson and a few small shows.  That was a huge luxury and only possible with the help of my parents and several part time jobs.  There just wasn’t anything left over for fancy schooling clothes, and I was fine with that. But I still wanted fancy schooling…

Blogger’s Weekend Swag Bag

Blogger’s Weekend Swag Bag

In yesterday’s Blogger’s Weekend post I alluded to the swag bags, but I thought they deserved a post of their own to give our sponsor’s some more recognition. First I want to thank Stephanie from Hand Gallop for having the idea to do swag bags and bringing treats, nose shavers and the bags themselves from The Horse of Course!  This Oklahoma based tack shop does online ordering, consignment and specializes in a lot of premium harder to find brands. Let’s…

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 Tendon Boots

Product Review – Horze Tendon Boots

I am a lover of boots.  Specifically  – horse boots.  Usually I don’t admit to being much of a tack ho, but boots are my weakness.  If it weren’t for extreme self control, I’d have a million pairs.  So when Horze contact me about reviewing their extremely popular tendon boots, I jumped at the chance. In the past I’ve ordered fancy fleece protection boots from Horze, and was happy with the quality. For me, sizing was an issue since some…

Equestrian Gift Showcase – Gigi & Tea

Monogram is a lifestyle, and that is totally apparent in the equestrian world this year with the rise of vinyl monogram shops.  Turns out, you can monogram everything!  Breeches?  Check!  Helmet? Double check!  There are lots of stores out offering these services, but I choose today’s feature based off of great customer service experienced by friends of mine plus super quick, friendly communication with Hannah herself! Helmet monograms are quite individual. Are you big and swirly?  Me personally, I’m small &…

Equestrian Gift Showcase – One Horse

Equestrian Gift Showcase – One Horse

It was from the retail savvy blog of the $900 Facebook Pony where I first learned of the cool designs that are One Horse.  I love horses and horse clothing, but tend to go for the more subtle equestrian look than LOOK THERE’S A GIANT PONY ON EVERYTHING I OWN. One Horse has trendy + equestrian + subtle down with their designs, at least in my opinion!  Here are some of my favorite designs, which I can go ahead and tell…
