We eventers don’t pack lightly for our horses when we head to shows: two if not three entire sets of tack, a complete equine wardrobe, tack trunks full of every imaginable item for every imaginable scenario, all the trimmings to make a temporary stable into home for the weekend, plus hay, grain, and a 1,000+ pound animal loaded into a truck and trailer purchased exclusively for carting all this stuff around.
And yet, why can’t I remember to pack even the most basic of essentials for myself? At horse shows, my self-care goes down the drain: I end up washing my face with a bar of crappy hotel hand soap and, despite the fact that I own at least 20 lip balms, I can never find a single one. My horse looks and feels like a million bucks, yet I’m hobbling around a three-day old ponytail and dark circles under my eyes.
We can take better care of ourselves than this, eventer friends. Last week we introduced you to Diamonds in the Dirt — “small-batch, hand-crafted skin care with a focus on organic ingredients, simple formulas, and earth-friendly packaging.” Formulated with hardworking, hard-playing equestrians in mind, it’s a sent-from-above answer to our special skincare needs.
