Recently I joined horse 4-H. I'm one of those rare few who joins it in their high school years. I've been an english purist rider for ages. But then I realized the cowgirl I had inside of me. It sounds weird, but my blood has plenty of country in it (my grandma took piano lessons from George Straight's parents-they lived down the street from each other!). So I took on western riding. Of course, I fell in love, and rode my first western show only after about 2 months.
So, I had the western riding skills, but I didn't have the boots. So I went to my local western store after my birthday, and had to face the endless shelves of boots with a practically empty pocket compared to some of the prices.
I wanted a stylish boot, a boot I could wear around town, but I also wanted a functional riding/mucking boot. Where I live, there is plenty of rain and mud. I also wanted a boot that I could wear at 4-H shows. And this all had to be met within my small budget.
I saw the gypsies, with light blue piping and square toes, and fell in love. They were perfect. And fit my budget. I could say that they practically screamed my name.
So of course I bought them.
I even fell in love with the box.
And that love still lasts. I wore them just today while riding. Sometimes I even wear them with my breeches, I love them so much. And today when I was hosing down my horse I of course managed to spray myself. No big deal. My boots were soaking wet, yet my feet were perfectly dry.
Justin, you've satisfied. Actually, more than satisfied. You've got me in love with a pair of boots. Just like it is said with horses, you can never have just one.
If you happen to fall in love with my story like I fell in love with my boots, I would love another pair.
