There’s one thing we can promise you, and that’s that we’ll never, ever, ever talk politics on this blog. Who has the time, when we’ve got all of this great horse jewelry to occupy our attention? But we do have to say that our ears perked up when we heard that Mitt Romney, the leading contender in the Republican primaries, had horses.
In a video interview, Romney says that his wife Ann has Austrian Warmbloods. She rides horses as therapy for multiple sclerosis, and apparently competes in dressage. Mr. Romney was quoted as explaining Austrian Warmbloods.“It’s a dressage horse. It’s a kind of horse for the sport that she’s in. Me, I have a Missouri Fox Trotter.”
If you’d like to see some beautiful warmblood horses, check out this photo gallery from the American Warmblood Society. We’re really looking at some of the finest equine athletes when we talk about Warmbloods – not to mention some of the best companions and friends.
We have a great collection of breed symbol jewelry. You’ll find gold breed symbol pendants, gold horse breed symbol charms, sterling silver breed charms, sterling silver breed charm bracelets, and more. For the male horse enthusiast, there’s a range of breed symbol cufflinks and tie tacks.
This Sterling Silver Swedish Warmblood Stock Pin is an easy, elegant way to show your love of horses. At 3/4″ square, this is a nice size stock pin that looks great on the lapel. If you’ve been searching for a gift for the great guy in your life, it’s an easy choice!
Here’s one of our favorite dressage quotes:
“As the blind person touches the object before him very softly and lightly with his fingertips in order not to interfere with the work of the sensitive nerve ends by too much pressure, so it is the rider’s first obligation to keep soft and natural those parts of his body with which he feels his horse. If his seat meets this requirement, he will soon feel the movement of the horse’s legs and will be able to distinguish each individual one; he will thus have the means at his disposal with which to control them as if they were his own. ~ G.Steinbrecht
