Pony Express Blog Hop: Christmas Lists

This blog hop is fun!  And well timed since I have nothing much to write about since I still don't have a saddle that fits Dee (despite trying a plethora).

I've had horses my entire life.  I've been solely responsible for paying for my own horse and horse gear for 10 years. I always figured that the longer I had horses and the more stuff I got, the less I would need/want.  Why o'why does it not work that way?  I have stuff.  Lots and lots of stuff.  But there is still an always growing list of stuff I need/want.

For Christmas I really would like it if Santa could express ship me a custom Devoucoux (with a forward flap that magically fit my crazy hard to fit horse).
Ideally in black with silver piping!

Since that is not going to happen I do have some more reasonable wishlist items:

Every pair of breeches Aztec Diamond makes.

I can't figure out why it's blurry, it's not until I upload it :(
Or Annie's makes.
But especially these!
A PS of Sweden Breastplate.  My mom has said once I get a saddle she will order me one.  My mama is the best mama!  I'd also like one of their bridles (maybe my birthday?)
So purdy!  Must have!
A FITS Zephyr show coat.  Because it's mesh and breathes!  And it's still so classy looking.  A local tack store just had a wicked sale and I managed to snag this coat for 50% off.  Merry Christmas to me!
Ecogold cross country boots.  I like to support Canadian companies and I like science based facts.  So win/win here.
Watch the axe test video!
Dubarry boots.
Why is everything I want so pricey?!?

In all reality, I need nothing except saddles that fit my horse.  All spending money is going o be funneled into that endeavor for the foreseeable future.  Add that to the fact that the Boy and I are trying to purchase and acreage and I have a feeling these are all going to live on my list for awhile. It's nice to dream though.


  1. There's always, ALWAYS new horse things to buy haha

  2. Ohhh...I love your list, we share some of the same wants! I was checking out that FITS coat this past summer and it's definitely on my wish list - nice score!

  3. so much good stuff!!! and nice snag on that jacket! good luck with the saddle and acreage - either of those (or both!) would be a very nice start indeed :)

  4. Fun! Thanks for joining in. :)

  5. I'm glad you got the coat! It's gorgeous!

  6. I agree about wanting all the horse things. I always think I'll get to the end of the list but that never seems to happen.

    I completely understand saddle fitting hell so I'll have my fingers crossed for you.
