Bridles & Baubles

Round Up

Whew! What a week it has been! A short week (thanks to Labor Day) still felt like a loooong week. I am back to blogging after a short break and kicked it off with this great DIY bit/scarf belt.

On the horse front, I took my 4 year old quarter horse Tyler to a horse trainer to finish his education and my worrying mother instincts have gone into high gear even though I know he is in good hands. I can totally sympathize with all the moms out there who sent their kindergarteners to school for the first time. I brought him home from another trainer in mid-June and let him have a bit of break thru July and August and now it is back to work fixing his lope (the other trainer seriously messed it up) and learning to do horsemanship and trail. I will keep you posted on his progress! My retired hunt seat gelding Woody pulled his suspensory ligament playing in his turnout pen and so I have spent all week playing nurse with him and will blog next week about the amazing ice boot and anti-inflammatory cream I have been using. I also started getting serious about getting my two year old Scout ready to go to the APHA World Show in showmanship after taking a break thru the summer.

Summer has also decided to set up shop and stay awhile and I am desperately wanting cooler fall-like temps! I catch my self dreaming of cashmere sweaters and suede booties!

Here are a few of my fave things I saw and loved this week:

A great video on the proper way to pull off a horse shoe (an absolute necessity for any horse owner).

This pair of Rag & Bone booties and this pair of Hunter x Rag & Bone rubber short boots.

Chico's So Slimming Denim Leggings (they look and feel great, perfect to wear with boots and comfortable enough to ride in).

New York Fashion Week kicked off this week and NY Mag is my fave spot to view all the runway shows.

Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes with Cool Whip Frosting (I am so in the mood for pumpkin desserts).

Happy Reading and Happy Weekend!
