The Gift Jacket

So I have been leasing out Chloe for the past three years to the same family. Grace, the daughter, has been riding and doing most of the caring for Chloe and started showing her last year. I love Chloe to death (she is 15 this year and I have owned her for 10 years) so it was important that she was to be at a good home while I work with April, finances just don't allow me to board two horses at this time and I don't want to sell Chloe. Anyways since the family didn't do any showing up till the last couple of years Grace just didnt have much of anything needed to show. So we have let her borrow most everything including the clothes... Well my mom and I decided that we wanted to make her a jacket of her own- it is a gift to her for taking great care of Chloe. It is the style that you can wear for either showmanship or western- About 16 combined hours later and 300+ hand placed crystals (they are throughout the body as well- they don't show well on the pictures) this is what it looked like-----

Wow, what an awesome gift. Very flashy and sure to get some attention.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Wow, that's a beautiful jacket . I'm sure she'll like it.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

She LOVED it... and wore it on Sunday at an open show.
