I still have money that is unspent, but with the various sales and discounts that Riding Warehouse always runs, I did mange to find a few things right off the bat that I wanted.
I hear you, but man do I have a thing for socks. My mother-in-law always stuffs my stocking full of socks for Christmas, which I really appreciate. On a whim, I ordered a few of those super cute If You Can Read This Bring Me a Glass of Wine socks, and then my step-mom sent me an even cuter pair of the same.
Whenever I order tack or fly spray or wormer, I always toss in a couple of pairs of tall socks. These are a pretty basic pair of CoolMax Tall Boot Socks from Ariat. As I've mentioned before, I always buy in twos so that I can eventually pair the socks that don't have holes in the toes, effectually creating a new pair.
These are pretty nice ones, too. They're the Euroweave DX Campania Ornate Full Seat Breeches by Ovation. They come in midnight navy and boysenberry which are more like dark teal and a very dark eggplant. At $79.88, I thought they were an awesome bargain especially since they come with all of the bells and whistles: Dry-Lex fabric, sock bottoms, fancy embroidery, and full seats. I know I have put on a few pounds this year, but they do seem to run a size small. Oh, all right, it's more than a few pounds.
I immediately cracked up laughing. Izzy won't know which way to go! Fortunately, my saddle should cover the goof. I've since ordered a new pad and had it sent to the friend who takes care of all of Team Symphony's customization. She's going to ensure that the embroiderer does it again, this time correctly and at no charge. Good thing the pads are so cheap!
I've got money left on my gift cards, although I did make a pretty good dent. I think I'll wait for some spring stuff to make its way onto the Riding Warehouse shelves before I spend the rest of it. I am sure I can find 5 NEW things to buy!
