From Endurance to Dressage
We Have a Winner!
Well, two actually. As promised, I kept it simple. I wrote down everyone's names and my husband picked a winner, one at a time.
Last week, Roeckl sent me two gift certificates to share with whomever might be interested in owning a new pair of gloves. My personal favorites are the Lona Two Tone Roeck-Grip gloves, but the gift certificates are for whichever style you'd like to try.
Keeping it old school, I wrote everyone's name down on a slip of paper. It took me a while though because as I wrote down your names, I visited your blogs/websites if you had one, and then I found myself reading instead of writing.
Once I was sure I hadn't missed anyone, the hunt was on for a suitable container from which to pull two names; I didn't want to use just anything. Then I remembered that one of my sweetest students had given me a small gift last week, so I dug out her gift bag; it was the perfect size.
My husband was happy to pick names out of a bag, and he even suggested I video it. He's normally pretty shy, so I am not sure why the sudden interest in being a film star. I told him no to the video and to just pick already. Drumroll please ...
Thank you to everyone for commenting and sharing your experiences with Roeckl. I sure do love the gloves myself. Of course, now I want a pair of the white Lisboa; they come with Swarovski Crystals on the backhand. Who doesn't need those for showing?
Stephanie, your certificate is in the mail. Alanna, I've sent you an email.

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.
