Spring Shopping List!

angie

Falkner and I are eagerly waiting spring. I know a lot of people are saying that, but normally I love winter and lots of snow. This winter has just been ridiculously cold, and I’m done with it! I find myself dreaming about all the fun things Falkner and I can do (and buy) in the spring. The first thing will be getting back into a regular riding routine. It’s just been too cold most days to ride in an outdoor ring. Also, Falkner normally loses some weight in the winter. However, this year he’s been able to keep his belly. We’ll have to start working some of that off once it’s above freezing!

Here’s my shopping list:

Under Armour!

Under Armour Qualifier Jacket
SOLD OUT
(9 reviews)

I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Under Armour clothing. The Tech Short Sleeve and the Qualifier Jacket are tops of the list. I love these because I can use them for riding and for going to the gym or running outside.


Piper Full Seat Breeches

I’m also excited to buy some of the new Piper Full Seats that are coming out. There are a bunch of new colors that are beautiful! My first purchase will be the Anthracite w/ Coral.


Personalized Silken Fleece Hoodie

I love hoodies! I wear them all the time on the weekends, and this new item is so incredibly soft—I can’t wait to get it! It also comes with FREE personalization, which is great!


Ogilvy Dressage Friction Free Pad

Ogilvy Dressage Friction Free Pad

 $165.00
NEW!

I suppose I should also get something that will help Falkner out as well. What could be better than making his back more comfortable while riding? This saddle pad is a high-quality pad with a lot of great features. The anti-friction and shock-absorbing qualities are just the start. This saddle pad is also moisture wicking and antimicrobial in addition to being stain resistant!

Angie Parziale

Angie as a rider: I started riding when I was 8 years old and immediately fell in love with this amazing animal. I rode Welsh Ponies and showed on the Welsh Hunter Circuit in the Northeast before moving onto horses. I took a little break from my junior year in high school until I went to Johnson & Wales University. I rode on the IDA team and worked as a Teaching Assistant at the barn. I ended my time at school on an internship on Long Island where I did a lot of showing. Angie as a SmartPaker: As part of SmartPak’s merchandising team, it’s my job to make sure all of your supplements are always in stock! In my 9+ years here I’ve learned a ton and love knowing that all these horses are getting high quality, fresh supplements! All About Falkner: Falkner is a 19 year old Hanoverian. He was a school horse at Johnson & Wales University for about 10 years. He has been mostly ridden Dressage but jumps with A LOT of enthusiasm. When he was retired from the school program JWU reached out to me since they knew I had a special bond with him. I picked him up December of 2011 and he’s been enjoying the leisurely life. He’s outside all day with a couple of his buddies and when I ride him it’s like we were never apart.

Apparently I've been obsessed with horses since I was born, and I used to beg for pony rides on a regular basis. I started showing in 4-H, progressed to equitation and jumpers in high school and rode on the IHSA team in college where I also discovered the joys...
