Matchy Monday: Lilac

Confession time, I have a bit of a saddle pad addiction. It started with Kachina, since she was a pinto she didn't look great in white or black saddle pads so I was attracted to other colours of pads. It has kind of morphed and grown from that point. I don't care about collecting one specific brand or anything but pretty coloured saddle pads make me happy so I've slowly collected a rainbow. It helps that saddle pads are one piece of tack that I never have to worry about not fitting and that I can transfer from horse to horse. I also have some matching accessories (clothing, horse boots or wraps, browbands), but those only sometimes get used. 

I thought it would be fun to do an occasional "Matchy Monday" post to showcase what colourful items are in Naia's wardrobe. 

First up is lilac: 

Lilac-coloured lilacs in my backyard

Non-lilac-coloured lilacs in my backyard

The actual horse in lilac

Saddle pad: PS of Sweden Soft Lilac

Browband: Dark Jewel Designs

We obviously fail at selfies, but my $14 athletic tee from Mountain Warehouse is a pretty good match

In some lights it looks much more pink


  1. So pretty! I need absolutely zero enabling in the saddle pad department, I'm slowly collecting the rainbow as well :)

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I have some guilt over my collection, but they are pretty!

  2. I absolutely love it! That fabric looks so luxurious too! And black horses are great for looking nice with absolutely everything :D
