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.

Random question

Speaking of new saddles, does anyone know what companies do ID/ anti theft tags, micro chips etc for saddles? I know there’s a few out there, but I can’t for the life of me think of the company names.

Also, if anyone has done this for their saddle, do you mind sharing the product and satisfaction with it?? Thanks tumblr followers!

My saddle (it’s older than most of the barn children)

Really wanting to replace it, but I refuse to order a custom (which sadly my stature requires) Devoucoux until my baby horses are done growing πŸ˜•

Anonymous asked: What kind of saddle do u have?

A ancient Pessoa - I’ve had it forever. They were very well made when first produced, and it’s quite similar to many of the high end French saddles currently made.

Despite being disgustingly humid outside today, I had a wonderful ride.

Had a lax week about the gym. But it’s a vacation week for me before work really picks up in the fall - I plan on getting back in the gym early tomorrow am. I feel great though, and noticed I’m looking and feeling better in the saddle. I’ve also made some headway mentally, finally figuring out the world won’t end if you miss a day or 2 eating clean and exercising. I’m learning to just pick up where I left off, instead of punishing myself and sabotaging my progress entirely

The bugs were horrible today, so Baron got a vinegar bath after our ride. While he was drying, I also measured him for some new bakers. He was not having it, and was dancing all over the place lol. He’s somewhere between a 78”-85” based on my measuring struggles lol. I also measured him for a bellyband - which he stood perfectly still for?! (Go figure) - and I think he’s going to need a warmblood size, which needs to be ordered from FarmVet.

I had a great time at the Hampton Classic this week, getting to watch friends, barn kids, and twitter people show, but it was so nice having a morning at the barn - where I didn’t have to hurry off to something after. Nice pampering day for the pony 😊

Baron Nov 13’ v. Aug 14’ and still busy growing!

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
