Our Commercial Moment Blog Hop

From L at Viva Carlos.

What are you buying next? Not your “Wish I could” list but your actual practical pony shopping list. And if its a high ticket item you are saving for what is it and when do you expect to order/get it?

I have two big-ticket items coming up in April, but neither is technically a purchase. Both of Tristan’s saddles are getting reflocked on April 21, and most likely on that same day his trailer will go in for inspection + repairs. Saddles will probably be $255, and I’ve budgeted $500 for the trailer.
After that, it’ll be tickets to Everything Equine, and while I’m there I’ll be looking for a new bit for Tristan: loose ring but thinner through the mouth than his current bit. Say another $75 for those two.
Longer term, I need a new car at the end of the summer (I’ve been saving for this for a few years now, and expect to have about a 50% down payment), and then this fall I’ll be shopping for a new riding helmet. I’ll probably go with an International, but I’d like something a little nicer and less bubble-headed than the schooling helmet I wear now.

  1. Ha, I feel like that's a summary of nearly everything in my riding life. Not fancy, but practical!

    (for that matter, everything else in my life right now, *sad trombone*)
