I was able to cross off a lot of
LOLZ. Bitch, please. I'm a horse chick. Like there aren't ten bajillion things I want.
1. A Dressage Saddle
This is actually all I'm asking everyone for this year. I want a Tekna because:
a) It's synthetic and I like not having to clean my saddle after every ride (like I do now with my jump saddle, the lucky bastard).
b) It's got an adjustable gullet system which means that when Bobby fluctuates between a MW and a W, I can just change out the gullet. Yay!
c) And most importantly, it's cheap enough that I might actually be able to scrounge up enough money to purchase it myself since people keep rolling their eyes at me when I tell them I want a saddle for Christmas. The nerve.
2. Rambo Newmarket Quarter Sheet
I really want any quarter sheet instead of the small fleece blanket I'm ghetto-ly using now, but if I'm going to make a Christmas list, it better be fucking awesome, right? I don't think there's a classier, sexier color scheme than the original black, gold, and red stripes. I want you. I need you. Oh, baby. Oh, baby.
3. Back on Track Mesh Sheet
With a positive Lyme diagnosis and an already weak hind end, Bobby says he'd like nothing more than to warm up his aching muscles before riding. No problem, Bobby. Just keep in mind that this fucking sheet is nearly as expensive as the saddle I want. I hope you have a rich fairy godmother lined up somewhere, bro.
4. A Truck
Go big or go home, right? A "new" truck is actually on the list for this spring, but who knows if it will actually happen. I want to be able to trailer myself to shows and not have to worry about working around Hubby's schedule. A lifetime supply of free gas would obviously accompany this gift. Duh.
5. ALL THE BREECHES
Some people have an epidemic of breeches, like some people have an epidemic of saddle pads. I am not one of those people. I have four total pairs of breeches. One tan pair has a large bleach stain that covers my entire right thigh. The other tan pair has bite marks in one of my legs and make me look like I'm packing something in the crotch area....and it's not a lady something. My white full seats are strictly for showing only. My black breeches get used every time I ride and are starting to look more like a deep chocolate brown than black. NEED. MORE. BREECHES.
