The Ultimate Equestrian Holiday WishlistPosted on December 1, 2016
At Paperchases & Petticoats, we were really, really, really good this year. I expect Santa to bring only lavish gifts and no coal. If you were just as nice, check out our equestrian holiday wishlist for ideas you can send the man in the red suit, too:
1. Manifattura VALOR saddle pads
Above: Manifattura VALOR saddle pads, amount varies
100% wool felt means this pad is breathable as well as shock absorbing, and the design is stunning and raw. This is the kind of product that reminds us that you don’t need bling and glitz to be beautiful.
2. Warhorse Solutions LLC Equine Shampoo and Conditioner
Also good for dogs. Wally the itchy Golden Wienershit prefers to be bathed in Warhorse, which is the only shampoo that doesn’t leave him scratching in the middle of the bed from 2AM-4AM. All natural ingredients means good for you, good for your animals, and good for the environment.
3. Dubarry Cork Boot
Above: Dubarry Cork Boot, $379
Did you ruin your Dubarry Galway Boots for work by wearing them to the barn everyday? Me too. Make it up to yourself by getting the Dubarry Cork boot just for the office and around town. They’re waterproof like your Galways, and the grippy soles won’t let you fall on the ice this winter either.
4. Rambo Waterproof Dog Blanket
Above: Rambo Waterproof Dog Blanket, amount varies
If you thought Golden Wienershit was a difficult body type, wait until you see our newest addition- Duke the old, fat wiener dog. A true sausage/seal from head to tail, finding a blanket to fit this newly adopted, older gentleman was a feat. Thank goodness for Rambo’s new design, which has tapered shoulders that leave clearance between fabric and the ground so those little Dachshund legs are free to waddle. Add in the removable liner, and he’s set for his first winter in the great, white north.
5. Orvis Reflective Leather Dog Collar
Above: Orvis Reflective Leather Dog Collar, $49
This collar has it all, plus your dog’s name and phone number printed right on it. This avoids the necessity of noisy tags jangling between 2AM-4AM (notice a trend at my house?).
6. Ideana Equestrian Cap
Above: Ideana Equestrian Cap, $34.95
Sometimes I want to look like a cool, mod girl from the 1960s. And sometimes I also want my head to be warm. This hat accomplishes both.
7. Saga dinnerware
Above: Saga dinnerware, amount varies
Anthropologie is known for sneaking horses into all the right places. Update your table with these equestrian themed plates in the prettiest blue and white.
8. Ronner Design Miranda Knot Dress
Above: Ronner Design Miranda Knot Dress, $65
In 1992 my mom made me wear the itchiest ugly Christmas sweater ever made– while she wore the matching adult sized version. If only she would’ve gotten me the Miranda Knot dress, and a matching Ronner shirt for herself instead…
9. Katharine Page Devon T-Strap Sandal
Above: Katharine Page Devon T-Strap Sandal, $375
It’s cold now, but ask Santa to buy you this elegant, bridle leather inspired sandal. You won’t regret it come spring. One note: make sure to get a pedicure on your sad, winter feet before their debut.
10. Ruby Lena Jewelry Horseshoe Layering Necklace
Above: Ruby Lena Jewelry Horseshoe Layering Necklace, $32.40
I love rose gold, but I’d be willing to get this necklace in all three materials because layering them together at once is so gosh darn pretty.
11. Oughton Limited Carteret Tote
Above: Oughton Limited Carteret Tote, $535
Handmade in Italy, hardware and leather as strong as the highest quality show halter, plus rich tweeds = chic and functional. This is a bag your officemates will be drooling over, even if they’ve never been within 100 yards of a horse.
12. Boden The Mac rain coat
Above: Boden The Mac rain coat, $118
In green horses print this coat, paired with your Dubarry Cork boots, will keep you dry and warm well into spring.
13. PS of Sweden Giant Swarovski Browband
Above: PS of Sweden Giant Swarovski Browband, $137
Was your pony extra good this year? Is your pony also a pretty, pretty princess? Then Santa should have no problem leaving the tiara of his (or her) dreams under the tree.
14. For Fox Sake Novelty Shirt
Above: For Fox Sake Novelty Shirt, $16.97
Double entendre all day long in this adorable shirt.
