Hubby took me for a shopping spree at Bartville tack. Came home with two chestnut color halters, one havana oversize halter for big head boys, oversize hunt bridle, one black dressage bridle, one pair of the softgrip rubber reins, gag cheekpieces, standing martingale attachment, cob size rubber reins and lots of assorted martingale stoppers and reins stops. It's amazing how much quality tack you can buy there for such a cheap price. The a pair of SSG rancher gloves from Dover Saddlery.
I got the Charles Owen Pro II Skull.....in a size 7 1/2.....when I really needed a 7.....LOL It's already on it's way back to BoB for an exchange!
Also got 2 new fuzzy girths for the pony (so we can go out hacking/hunting/etc and not have to wash it right away to ride the next day!)....AND I got one of those fleece cozy wraps to put over my helmet for winter riding!
My birthday was on the 8th and I got the Optimum Time event watch
My favorite, it fits perfectly and is great in any weather!!!
Gift card for local Camden, SC tack store.
The Tack Room? I just got a card in the mail saying they're having an after Christmas sale all this week. 20% off storewide (except for saddles, trailers, and custom stuff). Runs from this Saturday to Saturday the 3rd of Jan. Lessonlearned and I were thinking of taking a trip up this week if she doesn't go to PA.
Nothing glamorous but Santa brought me a new helmet, which I love. I took advantage of some of the after-Christmas sales and bought myself some new winter riding gear - thermal breeches, winter riding boots, wool socks, etc... Merry Christmas to me!

A Devoucoux Short Anatomical Girth, Chiberta saddle pad, Del Mar boots, breeches, and a bucket carrier. It kind of looks like a muck cart, but it carries two buckets (with lids), and you can get different attachments to put on it instead of buckets.
I gave myself 2 blankets, bell boots, and some other things. Even w/ Dover's Ridiculous shipping charges, I still came out really well because of the great sale on Rhino blankets. I never use Dover, but I couldn't resist this time!
Santa gave me four full days at my trainers, which started today. My boy is staying over there and I have a lesson each day. I am in HEAVEN. This is the nicest thing I've ever gotten. I had the best ride today, I'm sure it was because I wasn't thinking..."gotta really make this count, this really needs to be good, don't know when I can get over here again..."
Happy New Year everyone. We are truly blessed to have horses in our lives, and all the wonderful people who seem to go along with them. I feel very, very lucky right now.
