I may have posted this picture sometime within the close to 500 posts that I have written but decided it would be good to put it in again. Not just so you could see that I was at one time slim and trim and young but because of the hat I am wearing. It’s a Stetson and I still have it to this day. In fact I have all of our Stetson hats from our showing years and they are in just as good shape as they were when we purchased them.
We loved the years that we were on the show circuit. Son was just a kid riding in lead line and then walk/trot, the Hubs did the in hand classes and I rode in amateur classes, western and English. I was in a trail class in the first picture, one of my favorite classes to compete in. I was riding Joe’s Ginger Snap or Ginger as we called her and she was a lovely mare, they don’t come any better.
The reason for this walk down memory lane was brought on by an e-mail I received recently asking if I would be interested in doing a post on Stetson products. That was a no brainer as I am so familiar with their products and love them. The quality is excellent whether it be cowboy boots, cowboy hats, jeans, shirts, anything you need for the show ring, for pleasure riding, or to look spiffy with a western flair.
The Hubs loves their shirts and there WILL be one under the tree for him at Christmas. I have already picked it out but can’t put the picture in as he sometimes reads my posts. Let me just say though that the color will match his eyes……….whew……… is it warm in here?
If you want to drool, and I know a lot of you wear cowboy boots go take a looksy at their assortment. I love wearing boots with jeans even when I am not riding so I have picked out about 13 pair, hey, Christmas is coming, ya never know!!!
Disclosure: Stetson paid me a small fee for writing this post but the opinions (and you know I always have one) are mine alone. :o)
