With Blair Atholl horse Trials fast approaching I decided that I should make a “wish list” so that I am not tempted into buying whatever I think is pretty. This is all very well being said, however
my shopping list isn’t small when has the wish list of an equestrian ever been small?! It is not massive but the things I need want to buy aren’t cheap…
New riding helmet (Suitable for dressage and showjumping – I have one for xc) Perhaps a gatehouse one – I was eye-ing one up when I went to HOYs last year.
Jodhpurs – I have a pair in white set aside for competition but I would like a few nice pairs every day types.
Stirrups – I would like I nice set of light weight stirrups.
Fly vail – I do have one but it’s too small for donkey ears. A neat black for competition or perhaps a navy and gold one.
Bridle – I have my schooling bridle which is ok for competition use but I would like one that I can keep nice and doesn’t look out of place with my blingy new brow band on. So that we can at least enter the arena looking the part even if the test goes disastrously wrong!
Clippers – I need to invest in a set, preferably reasonably quiet and/or cordless – Any suggestions are welcome !
Smart saddle pad for jumping. The one I do have is getting a bit scrappy looking.
Last but not least
All of the above is very well being said however we will just have to wait and see what I eventually come home with!
