It's All Arrived

It is no secret that horse people love buying tack - and I certainly can be no exception to the rule. I only needed to purchase some extra nibble nets, but instead wound up purchasing a wack-a-doodle of items and tack. It's almost like I scanned through each section and went, "Ooooh, I need this" and convinced myself that "I definitely need this". It's a problem, really.

Initially, I didn't know how the ordering process would go, since all of the items were from a US based company. And honestly, I don't know why I make orders for horse tack and the like from outside of Canada. It has never been anything but a huge pain in the ass and a major battle for me to even receive the package. I don't particularly think that it is the company's fault, considering it is an issue I've faced with an assortment of different tack stores. But it's just annoying trying to wait for the package and hear that it's been sent back to the US for a barrage of reasons.

And speaking of waiting, I had to stay late at work. Again. I wanted to go home and look at all the pretty things. Life responsibilities suck - enter sad face.

It was pretty magical opening the box, though.
But, I can't complain too much because the package arrived in a timely manner (less than a week) and nothing was back-ordered or missing from the order. I have two days left of work and then I can play with the ponies and use all of this awesome new stuff!

 I honestly didn't take many pictures of all my loot, but I did try on the boots and gloves. They fit well, and I'm excited to try everything out to do a proper review. The Western breastcollar feels like nice, supple leather and it appears as though it'll match my saddle well. I'm also excited to try the Sore No More "The Sauce" if/when Suzie's yearly rain-rot shows up.

So expect some reviews in the near future, and thank you to 900fbpony for letting me know about Riding Warehouse!

    1. I've already been wearing the FatBaby boots and I LOVE them. I'll try and do a review of most of the items (breast-collar, boots, gloves and SNM). I'm excited to try out the SNM too! I'll have to review it if/when I use it.

  3. Less than a week seems great from what I've heard about what a PITA it can be getting things in Canada from the US. Welcome to the RW club. ;)

    1. Thank you for letting everyone know about their site! I was surprised at their prices and even got a free hat! Surprisingly, the breast collar was originally $110 and I got it at a STEAL of a deal for $62!
