    Blunnies And a nice winter riding jacket, maybe the this one http://tinyurl.com/yzrrty5). Can you tell the cold is getting to me, lol?

    Although I'm digging the Joules Wellibobs, too... cute and practical!

    Royal Rider stirrups (I'm finally doing away with my ancient fillis irons...big step!) and maybe a new hunt coat since mine is super small.

    Ooh, I'll play! I just created mine earlier this week. (Yes, I make an actual list. )

    Just a background, I'm 20 year old college student, horse-less, ride on the IHSA team.

    Roeckl gloves
    Show breeches
    Helmet (really need this one)
    Practical Horseman Subscription- REALLY hoping for this
    And lots of horse books including "Ultimate Horse Barns" "Equine Massage" "Centered Riding" and some other ones.

    Since I actually make a list, and I'm still somewhat considered a "kid" I try to pick things that are different prices to make everyone happy. (Last year everything on my sister's list was $100+ )

    The best gifts I ever got were an Ariat vest (LOVE it!), warm jackets (this is the first year I'm not asking for a new one) and bags/carriers for my show clothes.

    Non-horse wants (for my relatives who refuse to buy horsey) include clothes, a crock pot, and a netflix subscription.

    I'm very curious to see what everyone says.

    Those bluhorse jackets that have the giant hood that goes over your helmet! I have it, but my mother decided to hold it hostage until Christmas morning =(.

    Tailored sportsman Trophy Hunters, my new favorite breech by Tailored. I thought it would end at the comfy schooling breeches, guess not!

    Roekl summer gloves, being that I've been showing all summer and fall with my winter gloves, not realizing. Haha.

    A new show jacket.

    ..... I'm going to have to come back to this thread! lol

    -close contact sheepskin show pad
    -a gr8(which I probably won't get! lol)
    -saddle pads(I can't help myself!)

    Most of the time, I prefer getting money from relatives just because the things I want cost a lot(like a new saddle-well used but still a lot of $$-going to shows, a lease, etc.) and their money is put to better use than just buying me random stuff I don't need and won't use. So that way I can save up the money I get and the money I make and get something I really enjoy.

    Boot bag
    New stirrups and leathers so I don't have to switch every time I switch saddles.
    A whole bunch of horse related books
    A brightly colored lunge whip so I can find it if it falls in the dirt.
    A saddle pad for trail riding with pockets on the side.

    There are a lot of other things that I would like but they are too expensive:
    New Paddock boots
    Wool Cooler
    Show bridle
    Show Britches
    A horse ranch located near a major ski area.

    But I already have my best present and that is my wonderful horse!

    SmartPak gift certificates!

    I'm about to tell my mom that I'd like a bunch of boot socks, and, if sh's feeling fiesty, some of the dark grey Ovation piped half chaps

    I mainly want the gift cert because I need a new helmet but am not sure which one so need to try them on!

    • A nice sheepskin half pad
    • A nice leather show bat (I've developed a new crop obsession!)
    • A trip to the Melting Pot fondue restaurant!
    • New boots: Probably the Der Dau stock boots or maybe Sergio Grasso's if I can find a really good sale or discount

    Since I am going to London for 3.5 months just after Christmas and won't be riding a lot, there aren't really many riding things on my list. But, I would love:

    -Lots of Tall Boot socks! The warm kind, because it gets at least kind of cold in Northern California. I loff the Epona ones.
    -More hairnets
    -A carton (is that the right word? tub?) of horse treats. LOVE the Paddock Cakes ones.
    -Some riding lessons over winter break/before London.

    I can't really ask for too much though because I got to lease a wonderful mare for a few months while down at school, and got to take her to an 'A' show so that pretty much counts as everything that would have been on my horsey list. I consider anything else as WAY extra

    And non-horsey related:
    -The NorthFace puffy jacket--for London!
    -A bunch of good books
    "Life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride."
    Proud Member of the "OMFG I've been Banned" clique.

    Short enough to ride ponies but old enough to be in law school. What a life.
