I got a replacement hind xc boot set - Premiere's (hopefully they last longer than my EcoGolds did!). Also enough money to cover a new xc vest for me (everytime I put mine on last season I worried whether or not it would zip up!).
I got really lucky...in addition to new RR stirrup irons, dublin country boots, two cross-country shirts, a new pair of half chaps, and new full-seat winter riding pants...
Santa made me a custom-fitted tack "stand" (I say stand because it's more like a wall) in my basement with room for 4 saddles, 4 blankets, and loads of bridles as well as two custom-fitted (and removable!) saddle stands that fit in the backseat of my Dodge Ram. I'm such a lucky girl to have such a handy Santa... :-D
Santa gave me body armor so I can begin eventing in 2013! I got an Aeroware Outlyne vest, level 3. Can't wait to use it! My ottb got lots of peppermints, a day off to sunbathe in the lovely weather, and new bell boots.
"I am still under the impression there is nothing alive quite so beautiful
as a thoroughbred horse."
Ariat Bromont tall boots to stay toasty warm doing fancy winter things, and a backordered pair of ROMF tan winter brecches to wear for aforementioned fancy winter things. My husband discovered my saddle pad collection a couple months ago, so no new saddle pads, but he has not yet realized how extensive my breech collection is!
Santa brought me a Show Jumps!! I couldn't believe it!!! I might have squealed..... He brought me a set of four. One flower box Jump, four wings, a gate, four standards, and even the cups. I was greatly impressed of my non-horsey Santa!
In some ways, the County Conquest I put the deposit down on yesterday is a Christmas gift, so there's that. Otherwise, lots of warm socks, a new warm hat, and some warm gloves. Also, a sound, happy horse (knocking on wood like crazy), who I haven't seen since Saturday! Looking forward to seeing his snarky face tonight at night check. And, while it's sad (his companion passed away last weekend), I am driving to WV in the next week or two to get Neigh and bring him back to me. I am over the moon that I will get to see his fuzzy, spotty, sweet face EVERY DAY again!!!
Got some fun, little, non-horsey things from siblings, but the best non-horsey gift was just lots of fun hang out time with my family.
