Thursday's Threads


Outfit Day! I ALMOST did green again this week, but then I remembered a very cute set I'd had made quite a long time ago but haven't shared here yet. Shiny is our model today because it absolutely is cutest on her. 

Though this photo isn't all that cute. She wasn't at
interested in standing up nicely in the sun for a photo.

I know, you can't tell what the print is from this far away. Be patient, you'll see!

Bridle: Winner Special
This is the brown and rose gold bridle I got from Italy for such a great price. I haven't had then on here much, but I really like the bridles! They are soft right out of the box and are wearing very well so far!

Saddle: Custom Saddlery
Saddle Pad: Equine Star
This Eskadron under pad has been so great! I love getting to put silly outfits on Shiny too! Anyway, now can you see the print on the pad? They're PUGS! Lil' Pia's on the pads! Ha! I think these came out so adorable. 

Boots: Equine Star
And of course, boots to match!

Here's what I wore to complement Shiny's outfit:

Fortunately, I snapped photos BEFORE my unplanned dismount from Al... Lol. 

Helmet: IRH
Glad I didn't smack my head with this one on since it's practically new and doesn't have MIPS... I watched the video to make sure, but this helmet should live to see another day in the saddle.

Top: B Vertigo
A month or so ago I was hunting for a cheap martingale to replace the one Al ate. Equus Now was having a sale on clearance, so I found one there for $25. Perfect! Of course, once there I was perusing the rest of the sale section. This sweater was a sample and was 50% off so I snagged it. I love the color, and it's such a nice weight. It's perfect for fall and will be nice as a layer come winter too. It's actually a new item for B Vertigo, just releasing now, so I'm guessing Equus Now just decided not to carry this line. I'm just hypothesizing. But regardless, I snagged a great deal on a merino blend sweater!

Belt: Hand Embellished by me
Buckle: Mane Jane
I'm actually pretty happy with how this belt turned out! It fits nicely and is comfortable, plus it's holding up well so far!

Breeches: Tailored Sportsman
Nothing new here, you've seen these. I scored them pretty inexpensively from Poshmark I think last year?

Boots: Dover, embellished by me

For inexpensive boots, these are actually pretty nice. They broke in quickly and are very comfortable. They are sized a little generously in the calf, these are regular calf and are a little loose on me. I added the little rose gold stud at the top, and they also have rose gold eyelets for the laces that I added. 

And that's it for today! How cute are the lil' puggies?!

    1. Thank you! Shiny ups the cuteness factor for sure.

  2. Eyyyyy shop local! To me, anyway. Equus Now is 15 minutes from my trainer's barn.

    1. Oh fun! I order from them a fair amount, they tend to have great sales!

  3. The pugs are so cute! And I really love the bridles with rose gold 🤩

    1. Thanks! I love those bridles! And they were only around $100 WITH reins. So nice for the price!
