Once it was Louboutins - but now I drool over horsey gear

Have your say

Not so very long ago it was the likes of Christian Louboutin shoes and hair extensions that would get my pulse racing with want and desire.

How times have changed. These days you’re more likely to find me browsing through horsey catalogues than fashion magazines.

Now I find myself drooling over expensive riding clobber, My horse’s wardrobe has expanded rapidly too – he now has a rug for when it’s raining and cold, a fleece for when he’s sweaty (how an equine can get a sweat on munching grass all day is something I haven’t fathomed out yet), not to mention a stable coat for just chilling in his pad.

At this rate I reckon I might have to remortgage my own humble stable to pay for all this gear.
