Since the weather has sufficiently determined that I would not get to ride this week, I thought I would share this year's horse related Christmas gifts. It took me years, but it seems that I have managed to train my family that if they are going to give me a gift to purchase me horse related items. I'd be perfectly happy with just their company for the holidays and no gifts, but I seem to have had a harder time training people to do that than to hit up a tack store. So, without further adieu...
The LootBreeches: Hub's got me a pair of fleece lined winter riding breeches from Tuffrider. He had gotten my the same pair in beige a couple years ago, right after I had Junior. However, I have since then lost my baby weight, so I needed a pair in a smaller size. These fit perfect, are perfectly warm riding in temps down to 15ºF (I haven't ridden in colder temps) and I love the grey color. It is nice to no longer have to wear long johns underneath my breeches!

Gloves: My folks got me some SSG winter riding gloves. I love the tan color and the leather is buttery soft and they are so nice and warm without being bulky. I am in love with these gloves. They also splurged and got me a pair of the SSG Rancher gloves, which I have yet to use, but seem equally buttery soft.

Blanket Bar: My Mom got me a Tough-1 Blanket/Tack Rack bar for the tack room. This will be nice for saddle pads to dry on once I get it up. I plan on buying a few more as well and stacking them on the wall space between the saddle racks.

Barn Lights: Hubs got me the new overhead light fixtures for the barn. They look fabulous sitting in the box and I cannot wait for us to get them up and get them put to work! They are Hampton Bay Warehouse Pendant lights in a Brushed Nickel Finish.

Happy trails and swooshing tails!
