I've taken advantage of some recent sales and advertisements and accrued a bunch of potentially unnecessary shit.
I've been a die-hard Apple user for years now and my 6 has been the biggest piece of crap ever. I thought it was a software error so I restored to factory settings, had a corrupted backup file, paid to have the corruption fixed, but nada. It might be a hardware or a firmware issue, but I've given up on it. The problem it has is that it'll go from a perfect 100% rapidly down to 30%, hang out there for a while, drop to either 9 or 1%, depending on how it feels that day, and then crash. Or it'll die somewhere around 39%, I'll plug it in, and it'll reboot somewhere around 60%. So. Fucking. Done.

Smartpak had a recently promo on their embroidery. I've never had anything embroidered by them (that I can remember), but the first pad D gave me for our first Christmas was a turquoise PRI pad with my monogram. So, this Christmas, I got myself a turquoise dressage pad with Bold Archer, OTTB, and a crown. Because that fucker is the king.
I'm so far behind on catching y'all up that I'll never get there. But I had some pieces added or added to recently.
|The start of D's sleeve.|
I bought this bad boy at Tractor Supply for a whopping ten dollars. Slapping a monogram on him and he'll be good to go. We had a running joke at the barn that my old dressage whip was the "limp dick whip", because it broke. Anyways, it no longer functioned. Hah.
Custom Riding Tights
About a month ago, I saw someone on English Riding Apparel asking if people would be interested in riding tights in pretty fabrics. Of course, I bought two. I've reached out to the seller about maybe changing her pattern before I order more, because wearing these for the first time (hour long trail ride, half hour jump school), left me chafed where the sun don't shine.
|You can tell, right?|
|It's important to look awkward af when asking someone to photograph your ass.|
You know what sucks? Using your shitty iPhone 6 as a flashlight to walk across two pastures to try to retrieve a pony and not being sure how long said phone was going to survive the ordeal. So I bought a freaking headlamp. Thanks, Riding Warehouse, for the sale!
|What the ponies think when they see me coming.|
A couple of those breeches that I bought used and dyed have died. I still fully intend on replenishing my stock of DIY awesome, but I took advantage of these being on double-sale.
I've bought a couple other things but I can't really share them yet. Because I bought multiples!
*Come on, UPS. I'm still waiting on this shit.
