Somewhat Surprise!

About a week ago Hillary from EquestrianAtHart (check out her blog!) was selling a bunch of stuff and I definitely took advantage of the "slightly stained" $25 breeches. Main reason being is that, I have maybe 1... 2 pairs? And I really need to start wearing them when I ride because I'm down to one pair of good jeans (aka: jeans without "sexy cowgirl" holes). Anyway! I was "surprised" when I came home from work and found a BarkBox in my driveway. When I opened it and saw the breeches I squealed seeing how gorgeous they were. Then I read the note that was really sweet, and found a tub of Higher Standards leather cleaner. Double squeal! I've read so much about it and every has seemed so crazy about it, I'm definitely delighted to try it out. 


Hillary does some awesome give-a-ways and always has something great to say, if you don't read her blog now, you should. THANK YOU HILLARY! From me AND Mr. B. <3

In other news we got one more lesson in with E tonight and Auntie A came to watch. E also brought her new puppy that she adopted from KY. SOOOO CUTE!

We had some okay flatwork and okay jumping warm up, but we finally came together and pulled off a pretty awesome course. I just have to ride it, chin up, prideful, and confident. If I do that, he follows right along. I'm really excited for this weekend... I should probably start packing now.

Anyone have any tips for a first time all weekend horse show?

So glad the breeches arrived safe. Hope they fit well and the soap treats you well :)
