$10 overnight shipping

Here at The Equestrian's Concierge, we offer shopping appointments, custom measuring, blanket service and leather services to make it easy.
ASSESS YOUR INVENTORY
Pull out your clothes -- and your gear -- to be sure everything fits and is in good condition. And since its Winter Circuit, don't forget the possibility of needing rain clothes for you and your horse.
Anything requiring custom ordering needs to be ordered now for Spring:
Show Coat -- even if its not custom-made, it may need to be special-ordered (from Italy or Belgium?)
Custom Boots - get measured and choose your style
Custom Horse Boots -- show your colors in EquiFit D-Teq
Tack Trunk - a new barn or perhaps a new cover or component
Custom Blankets - especially show scrim for the Dessert and rain sheet for the North
Luggage - garment bag, boot bag, tote
CLEAN IT UP
Be sure all of your tack, equipment, wraps, and blankets are clean and tagged:
Clean Blankets, pads, and wraps
Tack Repairs or Treatment of new or tired tack
Nameplates, embroidery, tags on EVERYTHING
Leather Care kit with proper cleaner, polish, and metal paste for boots, saddle, and bridle
IN THE DETAILS
Don't be caught not having the small stuff when getting back into the show routine
Hair Nets - always tend to the darker color of your hair
Spurs and spur straps, bat
Belt and tie
Socks -- the good kind that wick and breathe
Sewing kit -- for the uber-organized -- with extra buttons for shirts, breeches, and coat
PACK IT UP
Make sure your trunk is packed -- the way your trainer likes it -- and be sure you know what you'll be taking yourself and if you have the luggage to carry it
