- Full time training in April for my pony (so totally worth it)
- New helmet (my old one was infested with mice, and after I performed an exorcism on it it fell apart **the power of christ compels you, holy water splashed feverishly, helmet hissing and writhing**) -- I had bought the economy Charles Owen a month prior, but it just fit my head strangely (aka my head is oval shaped, and it's definitely more for the round-heads). I have yet to return it (because I'm lazy and don't want to go to UPS), but in its place I purchased an IRH ATH SSV from eBay. It was $70 cheaper on eBay than SmarkPak, but of course I was risking whether or not it'd fit. Luckily, it does. :)
- New bridle -- as I'm pretty sure you're all aware, SmartPak had a massive bridle sale to clear out for their mono-crown bridles coming in later this summer. I bought the WellFleet Double Raised Padded Snaffle in both cob and horse (Gav is a hard fit, but he was definitely cob with this bridle). Again, I've been too lazy to go to UPS quite yet, but it's going to happen. I need the credit on my freaking credit card! It's a flash, which Gavin hasn't used previously, but he's going well in it and it's a beautiful bridle!
- Another Rambo flysheet. Because Gavin nearly destroyed his last summer. I somehow managed to sew the old one back together about 10 times last summer, but I wouldn't exactly call the job professional (imagine white thread hanging everywhere). He's currently wearing the old, dilapidated one, but who knows how long it'll last - and when it dies, I need to have a replacement on hand since he gets such bad sweet itch.

The following pics are totally random, but I'd never been to a Dave and Buster's until recently. It was fun! Here's a couple of pics from the gaming extravaganza!
