Yes...we have snow up to the pollywog ☺. I have far too much time on my hands. Cabin fever is beginning to set in.
Skito pad with the poly wool blend against the horse, made without the pockets, possibly already exists in some form or other. Currently I use a Skito with inserts under her treed western saddle, but if I ever can afford the Eurolight I'm going to need something different that won't alter saddle fit. Figure I can pull the inserts out of the old Skito and get some more use out of it. I've liked that pad better than anything I've owned, and though I've tried various things I keep coming back to it.
It would be great if the maker of GOOBER GLUE adhesive and hoof pack would sell it in single use tubes. Enough in a tube to glue on four boots with a little to spare. I'd be very interested in trying the product with the easyboot glue on shells, but the whole caulking gun apparatus doesn't appeal to me. My hands are small, just give me a nice fat little tube that I can squeeze it out of.
Water bottle holders that have an inner plastic sleeve to give the holder a little firmness to make sliding your bottle on the go a bit slicker. Wider velcro tabs to fasten down with so you can stick them on the fly, instead of matching up the tiny little strips. Even better would be something like the cages that bikers use that you just "snap" the bottle into place and the spring action holds it in.
Halter Bridles, yes these are indeed out there, but some makers are moving away from them. I guess I want them to re-invent them so they don't ever go away completely. I'm not a fan of the newer styles coming out. I like the halter bridle with bit hangers. They are easy to use, and you have less "stuff" on the horse's head. The are also easy to change your color scheme by changing just your bit hangers!
Beta and Biothane in patterns and colors. Zebra print, plaid, glitter, candystripe, swirls, make it pretty for those of us who love tacky tack. I can just see my Zebra sport reins now.
A lighter Crestridge Endurance tree for those of us whose horse fits into the Crestridge J Bar tree. Mold it from fiberglass or some aerospace something or other, a saddle that weighs just ten pounds... just for me! Hang at least 7 dee rings on it.
A cantle pack that is easy to zip and unzip from that awkward angle sitting in the saddle. I find manipulating my pack while in the saddle extremely exasperating! Seems we could make these in zebra, cheetah, bright plaids, blue, pink, and purple camo too. Purple daisies anyone?
Easyboot Gaiters in royal blue, red, or even better the shells molded in lovely bright primary colors which make them easier to dig out of the storage box. Almost all of my horse stuff is black and it is a sea of blackness inside my totes.
As you can see I'm really not inventing anything. Just tweaking what I have and already like to suit my need for ease of use, better fit, or less weight to carry around.
Now back to criminal suspense (reading a book). ~E.G.
