I have been turned on to many tack and apparel companies since following bloggers and also since upping my instagram usage (Erika 2015: "Instagram... whaaaa?", Erika 2016: "Instagram... I still don't think I'm doing this right"). I'm in love with pretty much everything I see, but I don't think I've ever fallen so hard for a company as I did with PS of Sweden. I don't know how else to describe all of their items except sparkle pony meets patent leather magic.
Sadly, I have absolutely no need for a new bridle (not that that's really ever stopped me, but I'm trying to be better about spending). Lucky, or not so lucky, for me - they have an assortment of items that are both gorgeous and don't break the bank. I've had my eye on an adorable navy halter set that would look more than perfect on Gavin's big ole cow face.
So you can imagine my excitement when I saw their Instagram post this morning. It was only in Swedish, but my trained eye could see that it was a sale. I promptly google-translated that bitch and my heart rate went way WAY up. It seemed they were having a $100 off a $200 order. I raced to the site and quickly loaded up on total non-essentials.
The halter set (of course), the marshmallow browband, and a pair of super grip brown reins. I go to checkout, feeling giddy as hell. I put in the special sale code annnnnnd my heart sinks. It wasn't $100 off, it was $10 off. Google translate, why you gotta fuck with me?!?!
Like any good addict - I couldn't go home with nothing. That wasn't going to happen. In the words of George R.R. Martin (who I hate for not getting his next book out before the show) my blood was up! I put the reins back as they were just a last minute decision, but I kept the halter set and the browband. I'm going to call it my birthday present to myself. I can't wait to get my grubby little tack ho hands on that shit. And from what I hear, I should be seeing it early this coming week.
Anybody else have a special place in their heart for a different tack company? Believe me, I'm interested to hear all about it! ;)
