From Endurance to Dressage
Izzy's last ride will be in tomorrow's post because I HAD to share this deal from Riding Warehouse with you.
I really dig the Riding Warehouse, and I know that most of you do, too. They sent me one of their regular Look at All the Cool Stuff on Sale emails and I almost deleted it, until I saw this little tidbit.
Speedy sports a pair of DSB Dressage Boots in the front, but I want a pair for the hinds as well. They're usually priced at $37.95 for the originals, the patent glossies run 2 bucks more, but Riding Warehouse has them 10% off right now. I also want two pair for Izzy who is currently lugging around a very old, hand-me-down pair of boots from Dover.

I love these boots because of the variety of color combinations. You can get most of them with white fleece or black, and then there is the option of patent glossy or the plain matte finish. I have the matte black with white fleece, and I can't believe how nicely they wash up. I've washed them many times, and they are holding up super well to the frequent washings.
The sweet part of this deal is that if you buy two or more pairs, the regular price drops to $32.95. With the 10% discount though, they'd be $29 and some change. I'm not sure that Riding Warehouse will further discount the discounted price, but I am going to try. No one else can even touch that price for DSB boots!
While the ad says that the discounted price will be automatically applied, Riding Warehouse is having some technical difficulties, so simply enter the code OCTSALE at checkout to get your discount.
I'm doing some measuring this afternoon because this is a deal I just can't resist! Anyone going to join me?

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.
