From fashion trends to equipment advances, fads are apparent in many aspects of the equestrian world. It’s easy to get swept up by great marketing and the peer pressure generated by ultra-hip brands like Personally Preppy, My Barn Child and Ogilvy Equestrian. Sure, rust breeches are making a comeback, but will sparkly bridle charms still be in style in 5 years? That I can’t answer, but I can tell you that there’s one new brand that I’ve fallen head over heels in love with and it’s not just because they have a kickass Instagram account.
It’s time for my first goal review of 2015. I’ve been writing my goals down and reviewing them regularly ever since I started blogging and I really enjoy the process. It helps me stay on track and accomplish more when I have concrete items to work on; it also reminds me when things are tough or when we’ve reached a plateau that I’m not going backwards. I’m always a work in progress, but it’s that progress that keeps me going!
