From Endurance to Dressage
A few weeks ago, I reviewed the Horze Trista shirt. I bought mine at Riding Warehouse, but when I went back to order another one, the color I wanted was out of stock. Imagine my surprise when I got an email directly from Horze telling me about their current summer sale. And guess which item was being featured in the email?
I've never ordered from Horze directly, but I am in need of some retail therapy - boring story. If you buy the shirt directly from Horze, there are some new and interesting color choices. While I had my my eye on that Cobblestone Grey one, my size has already sold out. Snooze you lose, right? Instead, I ordered the lighter gray with the black collar.
The shirt was $29.99, four cents more than what Riding Warehouse carries it for. Of course, with Riding Warehouse I use a discount code so it would come out even cheaper, but it was close enough in price. Shipping was a wee bit more than with Riding Warehouse, but only by a couple of bucks
The truth is, so many of the riding shirts I've bought lately are nice enough to actually wear to work, so the purchases have been serving double duty. Of course, after a few months of wear, they do start to look a bit less sharp, shall we say, but that's reason to just buy a new one.
Have a great weekend!

Welcome to my dressage journey.
