I always have a great time at Rolex, it's like Mecca for eventers. Without a bunch of things on my shopping list I was struggling to burn through the money in my wallet, until that faithful moment.
I've been kicking around the idea of a new dressage coat. I have one, but you can't have just one coat. I wanted a navy one with sparkly buttons from Horze
both fantastic stretchy softshell coats that fit my wonderfully.
If any of you have been following my blog for awhile now (gosh I hope so) you'll remember this post from Xmas when I talked about a few of my "wants."
What's on your Christmas List?
I posted a stunning dressage coat from England with purple highlights. Drool.
Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon that exact same coat at VTO Saddlery.
Then I had a moment of giddy weakeness and found myself carrying around the coat with a big stupid grin on my face. Then checking out with the coat in hand. MINE!!!!
I'm glad I did. It's exactly me.
It's also popped up EVERYWHERE.
Behind The Bit Blog showcased it in a post.
It even showed up on the famous Eventing Nation
Now, will I ride well enough to deserve it? Who knows.
Will I get extra points for wearing it? "I'd give you a three for whatever the hell movement that was supposed to be, but stunning coat so here's a 5!"
and most importantly, can I find a stock tie to compliment it?!!!
This stock almost works, but it's cream and wouldn't match my breeches.
