Finley’s #ROOTD

With the hot summer weather in full force, I try to keep Finley looking cool in his sharp teal and black ROOTD!

Plymouth Elite Dressage Bridle and Plymouth Web Reins by SmartPak
I purchased this bridle for Finley when I bought him almost two years ago, and it’s still in great condition after using it about five times a week every week since then! The bridle was really supple right out of the bag, but unlike other bridles I’ve bought in the past, the leather hasn’t stretched over time so it fits Finley just as well as it did the day I bought it. The only update I’ve made to the bridle is that I switched out the rubber lines reins that came with it for the Plymouth Web Reins by SmartPak so I could pay better attention to my rein contact.

SmartPak Medium Diamond Dressage Saddle Pad
The SmartPak Medium Diamond Dressage Pads are a great and economical way to add some color to your horse’s schooling attire. I love the turquoise color on Finley, but there are 10 colors available so you have plenty of options to choose from!

Ultra ThinLine Trifecta Cotton Half Pad with Sheepskin Rolls
This half pad is amazing! I’m a little late to the party on how awesome ThinLine technology is, but I’m so glad I finally bought this pad for Finley. Finley’s back is a little on the long and low side, and this pad was the perfect addition to his #ROOTD to keep us both more comfortable during our rides!

HDR Pro Buffalo Dressage Saddle
I really like this dressage saddle! I didn’t like it at all when I first bought it, but luckily for me my saddle fitter was in town and could make some adjustments. It was like riding in a completely different saddle after he fit it to Finley! My saddle fitter visits twice a year and continues to make adjustments to my HDR as Finley’s back and muscling continue to develop.

Polo Wraps
I bought these teal polo wraps a few years ago at a local tack shop and they match the SmartPak Turquoise Medium Diamond Dressage pad almost perfectly! I think it’s fun to match Finley’s saddle pad and wraps so I try to do it as often as I can. I can’t remember what brand of wraps Finley’s are, but the Lettia CoolMax ICE Polo Wraps in Teal Blue look like a pretty close match in color and style.

Professional’s Choice Deluxe Ballistic Overreach Boots
I always put bell boots on Finley when I ride him and these Professional’s Choice Deluxe Ballistic Overreach Boots have really stood up to daily wear and tear. I also really like the no-turn feature of these boots, which help keep them in place no matter what we’re doing in the arena.
