My husband, our four dogs, and I went down to Boise to spend Christmas with my parents this year, which was awesome in every way except for the fact that I didn't get to see Gigi for four days :(. Our trip happened to coincide with the going-out-of-business sale of the tack store from my childhood. Insane deals and price cuts galore. It's still sad, though.... the end of an era.
Because I have the best dad in the world, he agreed to take me there to do a little Christmas shopping for myself. Here's what I ended up with:
1) Stubben EZ-Control Loose Ring Snaffle (5.25")
I originally went looking for a KK Loose Ring, but they didn't have any in the size I needed (boo). However, I did spot this little beauty at a deep discount. I had read about this bit a few weeks back and thought it sounded interesting. So into the cart it went ;). Verdict's still out on whether or not the princess finds it acceptable or not.
2) Eskadron Fleecy Bell Boots in White (Size Large)
|This, but white|
I'd been on the lookout for some nice white bell boots. First, because they are super dressagey, and second, because I just bought some giraffe print polos and I thought they would look smashing with white bell boots. Priorities.
3) Kerrits Circuit Fleece Gloves
And, the best one of all....
4) Mattes Contoured Sheepskin Dressage Girth (!!!)
|I'm a super legit DQ now.|
In addition to the presents from my dad, Joe got me a browband and two sets of beads from Dark Jewel Designs. One string is purple/clear beads, and the other is black/clear beads with pearls. Both are absolutely stunning. I'll have pictures to show you the next time I ride. I feel so spoiled!
I hope you all had as good of a Christmas as I did. Gifts aside, it was really special. Did you all have a good holiday?
