Tack shopping in Mallorca 

Ola,

Happy animal day! With all of these photos of animals on my social media I end up missing Grumpy more and more. He is being taken really good care of tough, so bet he doesn’t miss me at all. Hehe 

After one to many hours in the sun today, me and my boyfriend were laying bored at the hotel room. We are not drinkers and not really wine and dine every night kinda people, so after 3 days of watching series and shopping we decided to see what Mallorca had to offer when it comes to Horse stuff. Might have been me who decided that, but oh well, he was happy to get out of the room 😉 

After some googling I found two shops. The Zona EQuus and the Horse shop. As the island is known for it leather works I was hoping one of them would have a nice leather halter. 

We first went to EQuus which was a nice shop full of different brands from cheap to expensive. I was surprised to see how cheap, good breeches seemed to be. Many of them where like 50-60 euro, while in NL they would be at least a 100 euro. I found one halter here, but was so in doubt I didn’t buy it. They also had a Emerald Green Equiline saddle pad I’ve been wanting forever, but would have no clue how to bring that with me back home. Wouldn’t surprise me if Easyjet would charge me extra to carry it on. Haha 


Leather halter from EQuus own brand. Can be bought HERE


Secondly we went to The Horse Shop, which was almost so fancy I felt I had to go back home to change clothes before I went in. They sold all the expensive brands you would want from Kingsland, Prestige, Dyon to Equiline and so forth. They had a leather halter from Dyon, but at 130 euro I let it pass. 


In the end I actually didn’t end up buying anything, but it was interesting to see which brands they have here compared to home. I saw an amazing sheep skin girth that was so much cheaper then in NL. Hope you’ve had a good animal day!

Dear Santa

It’s officially less then a month till christmas. Which means thats its less then a month till Santa comes around. There is a few things that I hope will lay under my christmas tree. Even if I need to buy it myself 😉

  1. Equiline Helm and boots bag

Since I hopefully will be starting competitions in January this bag would be perfect. They actually don’t sell it in the Netherlands as far as I could find, but you can find it online here.

2. Eskadron Platinum Sweat rug 

I’ve been wanting this rug since I first laid my eyes on the collection, but considering Mr.Grumpy has enough rugs from here to Tokyo I haven’t managed to find an excuse yet that would justify me buying it. Can be found here.

3. Eskadron Fetlock boots

I have the front leg versions of these ones, but not the backlegs hence why their on the list. Can be bought here.

4. Clincher browband

I don’t know how long I’ve looked for the right clincher browband and yet I haven’t found the perfect one that I want except for one that doesn’t get made anymore. But this one comes pretty close. Can be bought here(I didn’t come up with the price, I know its outrageous).

5. Schockemohle Colerado Stirrup leather

When I bought my saddle it came with new stirrups and stirrup leather. The only issue is that the leather is so useless, its really difficult to change the length if you are already sitting on the horse, so I am looking for some new ones. These ones from Schockemohle are pretty nice. Can be bought here.

6. Amerigo x Mattes dressage girth

In all honesty I should have just bought this one instead of the BR one, so now its on the christmas list(probably forever as I just realised the leather girth alone is 250 euro…). Love that it comes in black. The only thing is that you will have to buy the girth as well as the fur. Girth can be bought here and fur here.

So, that was my christmas list. Considering my family doesn’t have anything to do with horses, nor do they read this blog I will probably have to purchase it all by myself. haha.
