I love the smell of tack shops. It's fun just to browse. I wasn't looking for anything in particular but I wanted to try on some breeches and check out the saddle pads. I found these breeches:
I found a couple tops on sale that I couldn't resist. Then it was time to check out the saddle pads. I love thin cotton pads. I think that they breathe well with the horse. Plus all my saddle pads were bought to go with Irish's colouring and I wanted to try some colours on Steele. I found this one:
I also bought a few presents for my nieces. When we returned home Ed looks at my bags and says "do you have enough room in the suitcase?" Ha. He thinks he's funny. I showed him my purchases. He looked at the saddle pad.
"I thought that you had a lot of saddle pads already"
"well......can you really have too many?" (I realize that I actually might have a saddle pad problem but, hey it could be worse).
One of my nephews overheard this conversation.
"Aunt Teresa, how many saddle pads do you have?"
"Ummm" I said
"She has at least 10" says Ed.
"10? Do you really have 10 saddle pads?"
I thought quickly.
"Let's go with 10" I say
"what do you mean, 'let's go with 10'?" asks Ed suspiciously.
"10 is a good number"I say as I head up upstairs to put my purchases away.
Besides, check the pad out on Steele- doesn't it look fabulous?
|he looks a little porky from this angle but he really isn't that big. honest.|
I think that the colours really suit him.
I rode in the breeches today. They were fabulously comfortable. I think that they are my new favourite breeches.
Do you have a tack shop 'problem' too?
Um, yeah, I only have 10 saddle pads too. Oops. They are soooo hard to resist!ReplyDelete
Love that saddle pad!ReplyDelete
That pad looks awesome on him!!! Gorgeous! You were totally justified in buying it... *evil grin* I only have three... honest... but I want to learn to make my own so I can have all sorts of colors and patterns! :DReplyDelete
Can you tell me A) what brand of denim breeches are those and also B) that saddle pad is gorgeous and I also need to know what brand!ReplyDelete
Imitation is the highest form of flattery :)
The breeches are 'Elation Denim Full Seat Soho Breeches'. $119 at GreenhawkDelete
The pad is a Shedrow Quilted Saddle pad $32.99
The breeches run pretty true to size and hold 'stuff' in rather than create bulges...
