What is “Winter”?

Shit is getting real.

I’ve been basking in the glory of an East Coast fall, delighting in those crisp mornings while simultaneously enjoying the golden, sun-filled afternoons. I’ve also been conveniently ignoring the fact that (a) Winter is Coming and (b) I am woefully unprepared.

Fall is lovely and pumpkin spice etc. etc. but I have a lesson tomorrow morning quite early, and the forecast is a sobering 37 degrees.


I have spent the evening cataloguing my Winter Riding Gear and it is, shall we say, somewhat lacking. Some serious work needs to be done in order to not freeze my tail off this winter.

Current wishlist items include:

A jacket! I literally do not even own a proper jacket.

Down! Puffy! What more could you want?


Because it’s important to not lose your fingers to frostbite

Cozy Boots!

LOL with my 45 pennies left over after shipping my horse across the country I will buy these lovelies.

What am I forgetting? Bring it, winter. THERE IS MORE SHOPPING TO BE DONE.


One thought on “What is “Winter”?

  1. I haven’t read this for awhile so I am excited to hear that Marley is moving East….where is the barn where you will keep him? and how does he get there, 5 days in a horse trailer????? Fill me in when you have a chance…love to Joe…
