Proper Riding Attire
Our Generation: Lily Anna's Riding Habit and Horse Care Set
OverviewThis accessory set is awesome. It comes with black riding boots, white socks, brown riding breeches, ivory tee shirt, pink plaid riding jacket, and black riding hat. PLUS a bucket, sponge, grooming mitten, brush, spray bottle, bag of feed, birthday card, birthday hat band, and thank you letter.
[Butter Brandy is a My Life As horse. She came with a few things, but no grooming accessories like many of the Our Generation horses and foals do.]
Getting DressedIt was difficult to put on the pants. And they didn't want to close properly.
Then I realized they were on backwards. So I tried again.
They went on a bit easier, but still had a hard time closing.
The tee short is really silky. It went on easily.
Oh, my! The jacket. The cuffs are tight. I can barely get my hand through the right cuff. The left was a bit better.
These are new riding boots, so they are really stiff. I really wish I had a long-handled shoe horn or boot jack. I'm glad there are laces on the back; I undid them and still had trouble getting them on.
With Butter Brandy
You have to see the tools in use. The mitten barely fits.
Same with the brush, but it's not so bad. It would have been better to have an elastic handle.
Here's a better look at the tee shirt.
Xyra's NotesI haven't had this much trouble with an OG outfit before. This is definitely not for a young child or even an impatient teen or adult.
- The pants waist and legs are tight. I had to shift and twist to get them on.
- The jacket was very frustrating. I almost thought I wouldn't get it on, but these cuffs were better than the Cabin Chic blouse.
- The boots...persistence can be key. I thought I'd have to increase the slit down the back, but eventually I got them on and tied nicely. They look great, but are too big.
- The birthday card and thank you note are personalized to fit Lily Anna's story. I will put them aside.
Do you go horseback riding? If yes, what is your favorite part of the ride? If no, do you like horses? Do you have a favorite breed?
