About this Blog

Meet my very 1st horse, Lazarus.
I couldn't wait for Santa anymore or ask one more time for a pony for my bday (after age 30 it got embarrassing). I took matters in my own hands and I finally decided to pick a pony that needed a new home. Laz found me as I contemplated with this idea. He was sweet yet very sassy, fresh off the track, Thoroughbred (OTTB).
Join us for our re-training, rehabbing from laminitis and testing all parts of mixed up horsemanship and partnership, and luck...

Product Rave: Lake Yard Boots

 At the end of August, I was contacted by Equestrian Clearance Warehouse, located in the UK about doing a product review.
I gladly accepted and if Laz & I can help any equestrian themed website out, we are happy to.
The Product choices I was given were Horse Rugs or Boots (human boots that is)
Since I have 2 blankets for Laz already (and strive to keep him naked for as much as possible) I went for the boots.
 I chose the Lake Yard Boots
They seemed like the perfect boot-effortless stylish and have that "Yes, I own a glamorous Pony" look.
The kind of boot that when you stroll around town in your butt stained black yoga pants, explains to a stranger "oooh, she's an equestrian...how cool and exciting!"

I kid....somewhat.
I will say, they are gorgeous boots!
Totally soft leather that will show marks when worn and loved; I just love when leather does that.  It's what good leather does.
And warm!
It wasn't a very cold day when I wore them, but it was in the 40's and I only had a thin pair of cotton socks and my toes were toasty warm all day.
These would be perfect for riding in, great tread and enough heel...
Or tailgating in...
Or traveling through an African Safari in...
Or running into Walmart for toilet paper in...
They are great, versatile boots
Toe to toe

 I had my Husband out with me at the barn to do a proper 'photo shoot' Product review...
Laz was NOT into it
"Gemme treats...I dunt care abut booootz"
"Much betters...MMmnnommmmm"
A few fashion bonus about these boots;
1. The tan color is versatile, I would pair with black leggings. Yes, I'm crazy like that.
2.  The calf width is FORGIVING and let's just say I wasn't blessed with chicken legs
3. The sole of shoe is very very comfortable. I wore these boots earlier all day at my friend's house for a party, and after standing pretty much for 7+ hours-my feet were never fatigued.

Now, for our attempt of the classic "Red barn Girl with Bay Horse photo shoot"...
P.S. Like I previously mentioned, I was at a party so I had done my hair/makeup, otherwise I so wouldn't have my hair down ..or mascara on...or brushed teeth.
 Let's snuggle
Laz did someone tell you to keep ears pinned back at all times when camera is shooting??!
 Ok, so we got Donkey impersonating a Bay horse in a Red barn with an overly eager Donkey owning girl.
These boots are great and get an A+ from me-in fact, I may wear them out and about more than  at the barn I love them so much!
If you want a pair of boots to ride in that you could look sleek in while walking your dog, or running errands from the barn...look no further!
TONS of horse product goodness on SALE!
Being from the UK..is super chic too, no?


  1. Love the boots:) Missy also seems to immediately put her ears back when I get a camera out...I swear she does it on purpose!

  2. Love love love those boots! I've been drooling over a pair (not sure if they're that brand) but they're too rich for my blood. I would spend that on boots for G but not me. ha ha! :)

  3. I love the boots! And great photos too of you and your sweet Laz.

  4. Laz looks gorgeous - Oh and so do the boots they're awesome.

  5. Love the boots and LOVE the pictures!

  6. Cuteness! Or, in Rachel Zoe language--major! I DIE! :-)
    Those look just like the Dubarrys and Dublin River Boots that I have been lusting after!
    OK, I really need to start blogging again so that maybe people will send ME free stuff. *grabby hands* WANT!

  7. I have a similar pair from Fuller Fillies...I have been wearing them EVERYWHERE lately with our crappy rainy weather. They are the perfect dog walking boots too:) Great pictures-apparently our handsome boys don't like being told to pose pretty. Miles always tells me he's not my catalog monkey:)

  8. Very nice Kristen, you very lucky girl!!!!!! I love the new header as well. Did you make it?? Love me!

  9. Ohhh I like those! Also love the new header!

  10. I love those boots and I certainly don't need them, which means I will probably buy them! They are funky UK sizes. What size are your feet and what size are those boots so I can get an idea?

  11. Love the boots, lovely photos too!!

  12. I wear a US size 8.5 and the boots are a UK size 5 (says 5 on bottom on shoe anyway).
    They stretch too in the calf..I've worn them now 3/4 times are they are quite roomy which I love. I HATE a tight boot on my thick calves!

  13. I like those! I'll have to check it out.

    You look very pretty and Laz is handsome as usual. I love the last picture where you're leaning against his neck. So cute. :)
