Ellie's Wishlist

It's no secret that I LOVE SMARTPAK!!! I spend probably a little too much time reading reviews, toting around my catalog, and messing around in my Wishlist.

So naturally I geeked out a little bit when they were in the office today. And by geeked out I mean told them all about my most recent Smartpak purchases and insisted they look at pictures of my new horse. My poor friend, their Ariat sales rep, just hung her head.

So I thought I'd share what's on Ellie's wish list right now! I feel pretty lucky- my saddle and bridle fit her just fine and she's about Wilbur's size so everything else translates as well. That being said there's always a few items on my Wishlist!

Equifit T-Boot EXP2: I love the Equifit boots! No velcro to get dirty, pull out the lining for a quick wash! Thanks to a gift card from Mom left over from Holiday, I already took care of these. Although in a fit of post order review reading I'm afraid that they're going to be too small (I ordered the S/M). I have a pair of the M/L but I think Polly may have stretched the elastic out a bit. Fingers crossed and gotta love Smartpak free returns!

Smartpak Lite AP Pad: I pulled the trigger on three of these pads (thanks again Mom!) because Lauren over at She Moved to Texas swears by them. Also Smartpak was offering free embroidery so not only do I have new pads coming....they're monogrammed.

Smartpak Triple Stitch Halter: Moving on to things actually on the Wishlist! A new halter with an Ellie nameplate of course. Why wouldn't I just switch out the nameplates on Wilbur's halter? That would certainly be cheaper. Call me old fashioned but I just think they both need their own halters.

Smartpak Fleece Girth: Ellie is a bit tinier than Wilbs and while I have the Professional Choice SMX Neoprene girth, it's a touch big and might be bugging her sensitive skin.

Equivisor: Not for Ellie obviously! For me! Actually there's a little gal in the barn that wears one and looks adorable. That's enough reason for me to get one right? Not just to block the sun but also to look cute!

Baker Irish Weave: I've been eyeing this thing for months but with all my blankets going on I couldn't justify adding one more. Sadly it still remains in Wishlist status! One day!

What's on your Wishlist?

  1. Window Shopping!! And I know what you mean, Carlos' leather halter is so nice and I love it, but its his, no other horse can use it.

  2. The ap lite pads are nice enough. I have 2 that I've had maybe 2 years now. Used to use them all the time but I'd say after year 1 they are looking a bit sad. I'm obsessed with ogilvy baby pads at the moment.

    And totally need to update my Smartpak wish list! :)

  5. I might just copy you and do this in a separate post. It would be hard to fit it in a comment. ;-)

    1. Bummer! I was all over that sale since I can never justify pulling the trigger on paying for monogrammed stuff!

  7. I really want a Micklem competition bridle but I've spent entirely too much money lately as it is!
