Wish List

Just because it's not Christmas doesn't mean I don't need things. As the weather is sporadically nicer, I am getting to ride more. And once it gets nice on a regular basis I will be holding my person to his promise to help me be able to ride 3-4x a week. SJ sits and watches in the stroller pretty well. But usually that only lasts about 20 minutes. I need to start riding again 30-45 mins a ride. Not because I plan on showing this year or anything like that. I just want to be fit and sane. Right when I got pregnant Twister and I were finally getting our shit together in the dressage department. Much of that is thanks to the lessons with Silke. And then he got basically a year and a half off. He hasn't been half bad the last couple rides, all things considering, but we have a LOT of work to do to get back to where we were before the time off.

As I get back into it, I am finding I need some things....

Paddock boots... because someday I WILL show again so I'd rather not trash my tall boots with day to day riding.... and Mona chewed a hole in my old pair.

Helmet.... my Ovation is still in great shape but the only way it fits is with all my hair shoved under it. It gets old. I want a nice schooling helmet for day to day riding and I LOVE this one. I don't care if it doesn't match anything else Twister goes in .

Carly's dressage saddle....or any dressage saddle. Or to have the knee rolls taken out of my saddle. I really hate my saddle.  I hate it. Hate it so much. The only reason I haven't taken it to the tack shop to get all of $50 for it is because it fits my awkward to fit horse.

Curtis has been turned out in Twister's brand new (in June 2015) Woof boots and has all the neoprene torn up. So annoying. Twister hardly used them. So I don't NEED these. But I'd like them. Luckily we still have a pair of sport boots that are too big for racehorse's dainty legs that are in good shape.


  1. I <3 those woof boots. They never let me down!

  2. I need new paddock boots too, the sole is split in mine... but sooo cheap haha

  3. A girl can never have too many shoes! Or sets of boots for her horse ;-)
