Reasonably Priced Christmas Wish List

(What do people without horses ask for for Christmas?  I wonder...)

Ski socks of various brands: $13-17






Compositi wide track composite stirrups, not in this color! - $34.95



An illuminated hoof pick.  Because if there is one thing lacking in my barn, it's good light over the wash rack: - $20.35


A white short sleeve show shirt, in order to avoid doing this again:



Saddle pads! I still have a hangup about buying them.  In my mind, I shouldn't pay more than $20, but I also can't stand low-quality ones.  This results in me just never buying them, and having a total of 3 schooling pads, including one that my grandma bought me in 6th grade.


What's on your reasonably priced Christmas wish list?

  1. Awww man, I don't know if you saw but Dover had their AP saddle pads on sale for $10/ea yesterday, as part of their 12 Days of Christmas. Of course, that $10/ea price doesn't include their atrocious shipping costs, so you're probably better off haha. And that illuminated hoof pick is pure genius! Wish I had invented that :)

    1. I did, but I've never been impressed with those pads. I want thick saddle pads that lay just right! And are as cheap as the Dover ones. Is that too much to ask? ;) And their shipping IS horrible.

  3. My mom always loves shopping for me at Christmas because I always need so much stuff for the pony!! I think Connor would look just smashing in that dark purple pad, you need it. And ski socks are also on my wish list!

    1. It's not that I'm greedy, see. It's just ... I'm pretty happy with what I have ponywise and lifewise. Except maybe for one of those marathon carriages or something. That would be the bee's knees.

      Hence, not a reasonably priced wishlist ;)

    1. It did look pretty good. I just felt awkward. Oh, coats are waived? Let me just...continue to wear sleeves.

    1. Mine tooooo. I bet they'll last longer since I won't be wearing them for stalls anymore. These boots/socks weren't made for walking.

  9. Tiny mouthed bits for Bridget...all mine are 5" or larger and I've been shamefully lazy about ordering and trying more when the one I use is OK for her at best. Also I really want a plate or decal for my tack trunk!

    1. I have to recommend the vinyl decal company I used for my tack trunk! They were great!

  12. Those stirrups are NEAT! Are they lightweight? Might have to add them to my list...

    1. Yes they are lightweight! I am excited to try them.

  13. love that hoof pick!!! and yea - the compositi stirrups seem like a perfect gift to ask for (so many 'reasonably priced' horse stuff falls into the category of 'wow nobody will ever want to actually buy this for me...' lol)

    1. Exactly, I think the stirrups are a good gift request. And they come in fun colors!

  15. Just curious about wanting composite stirrups instead of classic fillis irons?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. A few reasons. I'm curious to try them. Less weight. I've heard the wide track is good for joint pain (I got kicked in the knee while riding in 2007). I've also heard it's good for foot stability. And in eventing, George Morris can't tell me no. Typically, I'm a traditionalist, and I'll definitely get these in traditional colors, but I'm interested in stepping outside my box on this one.

  16. The hoofpick with the light is such a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I know! All hoofpicks should have lights. Even well-lit crossties have the horse's body shadowing the hoof.

  17. Um, what do you mean you don't want those stirrups in hot pink? Is there something wrong with you??
