It's when I put a nameplate on any piece of tack, no matter how innocuous, and then instantly can't use that piece of tack ever again. Once I thought I beat the system, and then my horse died. NOT EVEN KIDDING.
I've never been all that wild about monograms, particularly because my initials spell something I DO NOT need emblazoned all over anything. Really. I've tried to get over it, but it's not ok.

Oh yeah. I made joking comment on facebook while my saddle was getting working on about how it was sad that there weren't any sparkle options. So of course, my saddler PMs me and is like "but there ARE sparkle options".

Let me tell you--it's striking in pictures. It's freaking perfect in person.
It made my day. And my week.
Of course, my only option was to go straight to my barn and take it for a spin.
Sad for them.
I proceeded to have an absolutely fantastic ride. I can only conclude that Courage likes the sparkles as much as I do.
PS The process is still somewhat experimental, but the future is promising.
