10/10/2016: Over the weekend the Bony Pony was having their anniversary sale, so I picked up a pair of open front boots for Ezhno’s upcoming foray into jumping, a sheet for him to wear so that his winter coat stops coming in, and a mid/heavy weight 300g fill blanket for when the weather turns colder. (I still might need a slightly lighter sheet, but the 300 fill is a Professional’s runningmartingaleChoice and it was on clearance for $45 brand new, plus it was a super cute pattern (see left). I couldn’t resist, so we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.) I also found a surprising gem in the stacks of consignment saddlesa , the same model of saddle as my trainer’s, albeit in a 17.5″ instead of a 16.5″. Unfortunately, the flap ended up being too long for me and the tree, despite being the same size as the trainer’s, seemed slightly off on Ezhno, so I returned it. I’m probably being picky about saddles, but if I’m no3fitonhimgoing to spend that much money I want something that’s pretty perfect, you know?

10/18/2016: Since I’ve started jumping Ezhno, the trainer recommended I put him in a martingale. I wanted to avoid a standing martingale for now (since it’s similar to the head setter gear that Ezhno was using as a crutch before I bought him), so the trainer suggested a running martingale (to add a little extra stability to my rein aids and to prevent him from accidentally smacking me in the face when he flails around like the uncoordinated green horse he is). I tried one out when we had ezinhiscoolerour jumping lesson and the Trainer liked how he went in it, so I stopped by the Bony Pony to pick up a Chetak Running Martingale (plus some rubber rein stops).

11/18/2016: The Ebay saddle might be my most recent big ticket purchase, but like most equestrians my love of new equipment can’t be contained. A couple of weeks ago I went on a Riding Warehouse shopping spree, and after patiently waiting for a couple of items that were on back order I’ve finally got a small stash of new stuff to use and abuse. I already put up some GIFs of the results of my tiny Wahl Super Pocket Pro clippers, but Ezhno also netted himself a Centaur Turbo-Dry Cooler and a figure 8 noseband, and my Donatello got a pair of Ariat boot trees. I also snagged a few items from Amazon and the Bony Pony, including a pulling comb, a hay bag, and a helmet cover (so that I can show in my bright pink monstrosity)…

And now I can officially say:

I am on a money-spending HIATUS. 🙂

(yeah right, lol)
