From Endurance to Dressage
I wish my bank account's level of funds matched my level of enthusiasm for the Riding Warehouse. I truly love shopping with those ladies. The reality is that I only make so much money which means I can't have everything I want. And in truth, I already have everything that I need. That doesn't stop me from looking though.
Sadly, I won't be participating in Riding Warehouse's current super cool deal. Womp, womp. I don't think I've mentioned this yet, but we're saving for next summer's vacation - two weeks in Italy. We've purchased our flights, but there are a lot of expenses still to cover.
If I were going to shop right now, there are more than a few things I've been eye-balling such as ...
There is more of course, so much more, but I am not greedy. Maybe Santa's a bit bored this morning and has been catching up on his blogroll. In any case, maybe you've got a bit of money to spend ... hope you find something you like!
About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
