Five Things on My Christmas List

Thanks to Cob Jockey for a great idea for a meme!

Some of these things are a bit of a reach, and as such, I haven't actually put them on my Christmas list. (My parents don't believe in Christmas lists; they take them as a challenge and a list of things not to buy. My boyfriend's parents are very good about lists, but because of that I tend to be careful about what I put on there. Ahhhh, relationship Jenga.) But if I could put together my ideal Christmas list? These would all be on it.

1. Sore No More Gelotion

I love this stuff. I will take as much of it as I can get. I enumerated the reasons why it is my favorite in my product review of a few weeks ago.

2. Dublin River Boot

COVET. I love the look of them, I love the idea of them, I want them. I want them with a fierce lust that I usually reserve for new books and heavy duty pick up trucks. (Yes, I'm kind of boring.)

3. Saddle Stand

Believe it or not, I don't own one. Usually I put my saddle on the side of my truck bed to tack up, but that's getting kind of old. This would be great to have for tack cleaning, too.

4. SSG 10 Below Winter Gloves

I seriously need to step up my winter glove game. It's really starting to get cold now, and the fleece gloves I use right now are not cutting it.

5. Smart Shape Base Layer Tights

I feel pretty good about my base layers up top, but right now I just have the winter breeches on bottom - and they are glorious, but I'd like the option of stepping up the ante when I need to.

So, what do you want for Christmas?


  1. I bought the 10 below gloves Friday night. They are my new glove best friend. I bought them a size too big on purpose, so if I want to add a silk (or ceramic) glove liner, I can, so they are a bit sloppy at the finger ends. But they are SO COMFY and warm. Though in fairness it was 0 F on the weekend and I did chores but did not ride.

    1. Really good to hear! Hopefully I'll get them or something like them for Christmas. The numb/painful/itchy finger cycle of the barn is getting old already and we're not even really into winter yet.

    1. Aren't they just...sigh. They're very much an eventing thing, I feel like - it seems lie every other person on a course walk is wearing them (or the original Dubarrys). They're pricey for my budget but I can't help it. I want them.


Thanks for commenting! It's great to hear from you.
