The Daydreaming Equestrian

A 30-somethings journey to get back in the saddle and into the show ring again.

Plus anything horse related that inspires me.

LOVING my helmet monogram from Personally Preppy

Went with the 2” in matte black glitter

It glitters in the sunlight and is more matte in low light. Went on to the leather just fine. Putting the decals on my EquiFit jumping boots later

"Jolie" - August Training

Pleasantly surprised to find a new training video in my inbox this morning!

Very pleased with her progress 😍 My mind is blown, yet again, that she is only 3. Sorry Baron - looks like girls are smarter than boys lol!

Belly band has been found!!!!

FarmVet has them online or at their trailer at the Hampton Classic. $137 3 sizes

No luck yet finding something similar made by Grand Prix

Love this guy πŸ’•

Dreaded bath time…

The infamous bellyband!! lol

Got MANY questions about this. I asked Tori about it - and this particular is made by EquiFit - called the belly band spur protector. She said she really likes it. It actually goes all the way around the horse (there’s a big Velcro seam on the side). They happen to put it over the saddle pads, I assume to prevent any wither/back rubs. There are loops for the girth and a hook/ strap on each side that you would attach like a breastplate.

The ONLY place I can find it is at www.runningfox.com tack shop. Of course it’s $150 πŸ˜• - it’s not even on the equifit website.

She also said Grand Prix makes something similar, for a lot less $$, but I can’t find it anywhere.

Baron lesson 8/27/14

Baron was wild and unruly for the first 10-15 min of our lesson lol (much of which did NOT make it on to the video πŸ˜‰) Maybe he’s trying to tell me he wants to be a jumper?

Decided weekly videos are a bit overkill at this point - so this is my last weekly one. Starting in Sept, I will be doing an end of the month lesson compilation video - with maybe some screen shots along the way.

Enjoy!
