I have the same feelings about horse apparel as I do about people apparel. I LOVE having nice things that look fantastic, but I'm a terrible shopper. Usually when I'm out shopping for clothing I run out screaming but occasionally I persevere and I get great fashion pieces for making outfits (Thank you What Not To Wear). I was recently introduced to a website called Horze, which is a Finnish company that is recently available in the US (and shipped from the US). They are mostly jumper and dressage oriented but have a HUGE collection of matchy matchy saddle pads and clothing, as well as a line of tack and stable supplies.
Matchy Matchy Heaven
When I did some googling it seems like it's a well kept secret with people loyally purchasing from them for several years with satisfied results.
Best of all they are known for having huge sales and currently have a code for %50 off everything. Yes, everything.
So I've been busy for the last two days adding things to my cart and removing them. Do I really need a nicer pair of open fronts? If I do, what color? They have like 20 different choices. What about saddle pads? Do I really need yet another saddle pad? At what number do I have to admit to having a problem? Dressage or jumping? What color? What piping? What design?
How about purple checked breeches?
How about that dressage bridle I've been thinking about buying? I don't really NEED a bridle, the one I have holds the bit on just fine, but the leather isn't super quality and it buckles all the way up instead of in the middle.
What about a grooming tote? Fleece dress sheet?
THE CHOICES THE CHOICES!!
Or maybe I don't spend anything and save my money. Pffftttttt.
