Or AKA Louise’s wish list!
With Christmas rapidly approaching, here are the list of things that have caught my eye as presents that I think any equestrian would like. Since entering the world of equestrian blogging I have discovered so many new companies that just seem to be offering really cool stuff. Here is my present wish list, which I hope will introduce you to these companies if you don’t know them already.
1) Dreamers & Schemers boot socks

Boot socks but not your average boot socks, with designs such as Avocado Fam Jam, Sushi Love and Pony Ninja to name a few. These socks are totally unique & very funny. They even have booby socks & ones with cat butts on! I personally have my eye on Goat PJ Party ones. What a great stocking filler & I would say you wouldn’t even need to be a rider to like these. Go to http://www.dreamersnschemers.com/ to order.
2) Diary of a Wimpy Eventer book series.

Now since entering the wonderful world of equestrian blogging it quickly became apparent that I should read Victoria Brant aka The Wimpy Eventer’s books. I cannot count the amount of people I have seen on social media recommending them. I started following the Wimpy Eventer on social media a few months ago & I can honestly say that I find her to be funny, relatable and very inspiring. So I cannot wait to read her books. Available online at http://www.wimpyeventer.com/shop
3) Ariat riding boots

My riding boots broke recently and luckily for me Katie keeps her boots at the yard. I knew she wouldn’t mind if I borrowed her boots as she is great like that. So I rode in her Ariat Grasmere boots and wow I was so impressed! They are warm, comfortable and I could actually feel Mya’s sides when I rode (which I didn’t realise I couldn’t in my old boots until then). I was so impressed that they have ruined all other boots for me & I feel that I now need some Ariat country boots in my life! P.S. Confession – I haven’t just ridden in Katie’s boots once as I loved them so much!

4) Black Heart Equestrian Breeches.

Now I am a major fan of this new brand of riding clothes. I have a hoody & a pair of their flex riding leggings already and would love a pair of their breeches. To be honest I would wear all of their clothes as they all look great. I have previously written a review of the flex riding leggings on the blog so if the breeches are as comfy and practical as the leggings, as I am sure they are then they would look & feel great.

5) Gray & Co Horses & day drinking tee.

Funny and it looks good. This tee from Gray & Co is on my list as well it’s just a bit of fun! I also have my eye on their baddest bay on the block saddle pad too for Mya. This company just seems to have cool fun stuff which I really like the look of. Check out their website for more fun clothes and accessories http://www.graycodesigns.com.
I hope you have been inspired for some present ideas now or perhaps have more things to add to your own Christmas list. Either way I hope you have a great Christmas (I know it’s a bit early but we all need a bit of time to start shopping don’t we?!)
