Thursday's Threads


Outfit Day! And yes. I nearly forgot again. It was a busy day, what can I say? Anyway, here's what I wore this week:

Green! My favorite! Navy is a lovely color and all, but I prefer a nice hunter or forest green personally. 

Helmet: Samshield
Still enjoying the sparkly helmet. Look how nicely it matches with Al! (Who is our model today by the way.) 

Sweater: PS of Sweden
I'm pretty sure you've seen this before. I've had this one for a few years, and it's a favorite for sure.

Belt: The Sugar Lady
I wore Rio's belt with this outfit because I've been missing him a little extra lately. I really love how thi belt came out. It's so special to me.

Breeches: Ariat
These are old too. I have some fun new breeches I can't wait to share on the blog, but they're definitely more of a summer weight so you'll have to be patient for those to come out. In the meantime, enjoy these oldies!

Boots: Celeris UK
Yes, sorry. I have reused last week's photo. Same boots though, so whatever.

That's what I wore, and here's what Al had on this week:

Bridle: Joseph Sterling
Look at that handsome kid! I haven't decided yet if I prefer this thinner noseband, or the wider type on him. I'm leaning toward wider, but this bridle is lovely so we'll use it either way.

Saddle: Butet
Baby Pad: Ogilvy
Half Pad: Le Mieux
I really like the Le Mieux ProSorb half pad because it is designed to fit with a higher wither. That said, I prefer it for Eros. Al here has almost no wither, and this pad makes my saddle feel a little unstable on him. It looks nice though... If that matters. Ha!

Boots: Waldhausen
So. I wanted to love these boots. I really did. I LOVE the color. I like the fluffy part. I really like almost everything about them. Except that they are really tall. I got cob size because generally that's what my horses wear. And they fit pretty well around the leg, but they are so tall, that they end up slipping down when we ride. Not because I don't have them tight enough, but because when they bend their knees the boots are forced down. I'm going to try washing them to see if they'll soften up a little. Maybe if they're less stiff, they'll give more with the leg and stay put better. But if that doesn't fix them, I'll probably sell them to someone with a horse with long legs. (Al's legs are pretty long, and they worked best for him. Eros has pretty short canon bones, and they really weren't working great for him.)

And that's it for today! Any favorites? 


  1. i'm always a sucker for the wider nosebands, not gonna lie, but Al does look handsome!

    1. Yes, I think I agree. I need to grab the other Joseph Sterling bridle from the trailer for him. That one has the wide noseband.
