Thursday's Threads


Outfit day again! And I didn't wear blue! Two weeks in a row! Shiny is our model today, so let's start with what she had on.

Bridle: Camelot RCS Gold
Browband: Boy O'Boy Bridleworks

I haven't sold this bridle yet, so Shine's still wearing it. It still looks so nice on her though, I may keep it for her. We'll see. 

Saddle: Custom Saddlery
Saddle Pad: Premier Equine

I usually buy the cotton pads from PEI but I really wanted a brown pad which didn't come in the cotton. So I got this one. It's really nice actually, worth the extra money. It has non slip grippers on the top so the saddle stays in place and it fits this saddle really nicely. This photo is a bit off center, so not the best representation. You'll have to take my word for it.

Boots: HV Polo
I like these fluffy brown boots! I think they're smidge tall for her, but they don't seem to be getting in her way. 

That's what Shiny was wearing, and here's what I had on:

Yesterday was beautiful, in the 50's, partly sunny, but a quite breezy. Today though? Back to being cold. Temps stayed in the high 30's and it's been raining all day. So back to the layers!

Helmet: Samshield
Still wearing this one. I love it. So expect to see it a lot still. 

Vest: Ariat
Sweater: Luiza Vera
Baselayer: MerinoTech
I just really love a pretty hunt scene. And this is vest is one of my favorite things. I have a couple of shirts with the same print too. Because I am who I am.
I layered under it with a merino sweater I found on Amazon. I got a few of them as I've decided I only want to wear wool when it's cold. These ones I found are inexpensive ($30) and can be machine washed (hand to dry). Perfect for horsing! I layered a merino long sleeve shirt under it too. It's the perfect combo. 

Belt: Asmar
I keep forgetting I have this belt and plan to wear it more often. It's olive with a gold buckle and it reverses to olive croc on the other side. It also has a matching pouch you can wear with it to hold your phone. I didn't use that today, but probably will in the summer when I don't have jacket pockets.

Breeches: Ariat
You guys have seen these a bunch. I still love them! Wish they still made them. Kinda. I'm also glad they don't so I don't buy more breeches.

Socks: Dreamers and Schemers
I love my logo socks! Dreamers and Schemers is terrible for my need to logo everything. 

Boots: Celeris UK
I have to let my wounds heal before I get back to work breaking in the brown boots. So I stuck with these this week. 

Any favorites from today? Anything you've been wanting to see? You guys have been pretty quiet lately, are you still enjoying Thursday's Threads?


  1. Team Merino in the winter all the way. Not being the fashion icon that you are, I pretty much rotate between my two Smartwool quarter zips all winter long and almost never wash them, since they don't hang onto smells the way other fabrics do.

    1. They really don't get very smelly! I sweat a lot though so I do wash mine frequently. I realized how much warmer it is when I was doing the photos for Pinsnickety. When I put on the wool sweater I was SO MUCH warmer than in anything else I'd had on that day.

  2. I still enjoy Thursday's Threads! My life has been a bit upside down lately, so I don't always have the mental wherewithal to formulate a comment. I enjoy TT especially since I'm not riding right now. The Ariat vests are the bomb.

    1. I totally get that feeling! Some days I read through and comment on everything, and others I can't put enough words together to get a comment out.
      Thanks for still following along!

  3. I love that saddlepad and the vest. I love how put together you really are.

    1. Thank you! I really enjoy putting our outfits together!
      These pads are really nice and they come in dressage shape too.
