So last week I told the story of the best Christmas present ever that wasn’t meant to be.
There is a small silver lining to this story, which is that my husband is still committed to getting me a pricey (for us) horse-related Christmas gift.
And I have the perfect idea.
I currently ride in synthetic tall boots. I know, I know. At the time I bought them, they were the best option available on a lot of fronts. They’ve served me well – far, far better than I have deserved. But I’ve known for some time now that tall boots would have to be my next pricey equestrian purchase.
But here’s why I want them: they come in brown.
I have long coveted a pair of brown field boots. Serious covet. Desperate, starry-eyed, covet.
But now that I am in a position to pull the trigger, I am having second thoughts. I think about matching brown field boots to things, and I think about possibly showing. My black tall boots are not dead yet entirely – they could serve for showing.
But will I be that weirdo? I already have a silver helmet.
In case you couldn’t tell, I am not a big risk-taker when it comes to color…
