SFTS Blog Hop: That One Thing

The timing on this blog hop is pretty good since a few friends/family have already asked what I want for Christmas, which prompted me to make a list anyway. Now I just get to copy it over here! Yay for minimal effort. It’s a rainy gross week so I have nothing else exciting going on. Sorry.

Stories From the Saddle asked:

First, I wanna know: what is the ONE piece of tack (or clothing) that you simply cannot live without?  Second, I’d like to know what you’re currently saving up for or lusting after. Basically, what item do you have your eyes set on right now? If someone handed you enough money, what would be the first thing to buy on your list? 

The first one is easy – I can’t live without my CWD. I love it to bits and it fits my pony well. It makes my butt happy every single day.

The second part is pretty simple too… there’s not a whole lot left right now that I really really need, but there are a few things that aren’t completely superfluous wants:

Optimum time watch, in blue of course. Because it looks like something a blind smurf would wear, and that’s awesome.

Navy Roeckl gloves. Because navy.

Dublin River boots. Because apparently I’m an eventer again but I don’t roll deep enough for Dubarry.

Dressage boots for all 4. Because I’m tired of wrapping polos or using my open fronts for flat rides.

Shipping boots. Because I’m tired of wrapping standings at the crack of dawn to throw the horse in the trailer.

So basically the overall theme here is that I’m lazy.

If we wanted to get into everything I want we’d be here forever, but those things are a good start. Anyone who knows me should not be surprised that I couldn’t pick just one.

  1. If the dressage boots are the Tokalt Valena I coveted them
    Forever finally bought Huey a set and the back ones slide down EVERY SINGLE ride. It’s so annoying. I’ve tried everything and without fail they are down at his ankles. And I don’t believe it’s a sizing issue. The boots are super nice but for some reason my hind pair sucks. 😦

    I got a hand me down watch from a fellow boarder at my last barn and liked it. Great list


  2. So many nice things. My top want for my girls would be your first answer. Both girls could use new saddles, but as my apartment is ready in March there’ll be no big splurges on the horses till that is furnished & I’m all moved in…Admittedly by furnished i pretty much just mean a bed & wardrobe for me as kitchen, bathrooms & sofa are sorted 😉


  3. love the gloves! and also don’t have shipping boots (i just use bell boots, and occasionally splint/fetlock boots) – but would maybe change my tune if isabel was next to other horses?
