Window shopping/wish list!

I have not been riding as much lately, and I have had some extra time to do some (dangerous) window shopping. This has already led me to purchase some cross country boots for Tanta and a new show jacket… (both of which I got on really good sales!!😉) Here is a list of things I have restrained from instantly purchasing. How long I will be able to hold out though? I am unsure.

Motion Lite Competition Jacket

I mean… it’s amazing!!! I am sure this would be fantastic for some of the shows in the summer! And I just love this color. It would look so lovely with Tanta. But this color is called purple? It looks more burgundy to me… I would be slightly worried that it might be more purple in person? I have only seen this color in pictures. Not that I don’t love purple… but that might be a little too bright/colorfull for me as a show coat… and I um, just bought a show coat. So this is really completely NOT necessary… but STILL.

 

FITS full seat riding breaches

I have a pair of these exact breeches already!! They are my old XC ones and I love them very much. However, now that they are literally being held together with hot glue it seems like it might be time for a replacement. And I know, hot glue is probably not the best way to repair breeches, but um… I was late for a lesson!!

 

long sleeved purple shirt

For XC!! The only issue is that I am having trouble finding one to buy! I think maybe EIS doesn’t make this color anymore? It’s not on their website anyway. I’ve heard really good things about the Kastel Denmark shirts (but never owned one!), and they DO have a dark purple one. But I’m not a fan of the lighter purple mesh. Haha…

 

Nunn Finer Soft Grip Reins in PURPLE

I mean, the Nunn Finer Soft Grip reins are my all time FAVOURITES!!!!! and when I realized they came in PURPLE!!!!!?? For XC!!!!! Yes please! The only problem? The leather on the purple ones only comes in BROWN!!! *crying* but I am determined. Perhaps I could dye the leather bits black?

 

Purple XC ecogold saddle pad

More purple!! I need a saddle pad for XC that has some grip, as saddle pads have a tendency to slip around on tanta. Especially when she has her summer coat and is galloping! And I actually don’t have a grippy saddle pad. So this item is sort of needed? Don’t want my pony’s saddle pad getting all bunched up…😄

 

quick knot braid thingys

These look pretty awesome. I don’t love the look of elastic bands, but I am too lazy to sew in braids. I did it once (Never again…). So these seem perfect! But I am hesitate to purchase the Quick Knots as they are not cheap. Everyone who I have seen use these have really nice tidy looking braids (Although I have only seen photos. Not IRL). there is also the very real possibility that they are just better braiders than I am! I also wonder about the re-use ability? I have heard people say you can re-use them but I have also heard the opposite… hmmm.

Yikes! That’s it I think. Oh and Tanta needs wants a black jump bridle and breastplate. She has neither… yet. The ones pictured above belonged to my coach! And a white jump saddle pad… although I have not found any particular ones that I am in love with yet! (Phew? Haha.)

what about everyone else? Anything in particular you have been eyeing?

  1. Ahh! I sadly know exactly what you mean about time to window shop. It’s a dangerous activity.

    I Reeeaaaaally want one of the Moition Lite jackets as well! But in hunter green😉 because Ollie bunny is adorable in hunter green.

    At least everything on your list you (somewhat…) need! I don’t need anything from my “window shopping list” but I’m honestly considering placing a order anyways😬(bad girl Maren! Stop it!) good luck trying not to buy anything!
