Dear Santa

No one in my life is crazy enough to buy me horse stuff.  Most of the time, if I want it,  I manage to acquire it or it's too expensive for a run of the mill gift.

Exhibit A:  My Christmas present to Theo which just arrived

 As my Secret Santa this year said, "what do you get the woman that already has everything?".  She got me a bottle of wine and five kinds of chocolate.

I have awesome barn friends.

But that doesn't stop me from having a wish list.  A rather long one.

Dear Santa,

I've been a very good girl this year.  I did most of No Stirrup November, took Theo out on the trails by himself weekly, and have been working hard on my homework.  I even cleaned all of my tack last week!  My trainer says I've been very good and deserve a treat (she may have been talking to Theo, not sure on that point).  Since I've been so good, I'm hoping to find a few things under the tree to help me be even better next year.

A new jumping bridle for mi papi.
High Jump from PS of Sweden, I don't know why but I just want it

New cross country boots.  You can never be too safe over 18", you know.
Dalmar Cross Country boots from Dover

A new dressage saddle for our big recognized show debut next year.

The Frank Baines Union Lux, I want this so badly, pity I have other bills to worry about
A bit of bling, just for fun.
He would rock the vintage pink

Maybe a magic new bit that will fix all of our contact issues.
Lorenzini loose ring in titanium, because when in doubt, buy another bit
Or a new coat for that show debut.
 Seriously, this coat is everything I've ever wanted in a dressage coat

Oh, there's this one other thing I'd love to see under the tree.

 I know, I have weird tastes

So let me know when you'll be dropping all of my treasures off, Santa, so I can make room in my always overflowing locker.




    I loooooooove them, but cannot justify ANOTHER set of jump boots for a dressage horse.

    1. They are squishy and wonderful! I actually got them mostly for the days when I'm in too much of a hurry for polos, they are the fanciest flatwork boots in the barn.

  2. ha great list! fwiw i had a very positive buying experience from pelham saddlery ;)
