Equestrian Flair

It happens over and over, I get bitten by the equestrian chic bug that goes around. As you all know my mudroom/hallway is equestrian-ized (or if you missed it, check out the before/after section - mudroom). But A few ponies has def. made their presence other places as well... Maybe it comes from owning the sweetest pony ever born (Pixie of course!!!), or maybe it's just in my blood.
the white horse, found at a fleamarket is a favorite. It works well in my diningroom, and will not be moved to the hallway any day soon.

then there is these Schleich ponies... pure plastic fantastic... but I collect them and decided to use them here and there.... 

I am also forever and always hunting etsy for equestrian treasures. Both for my hallway, my stable and for everywhere else :)
Here are some of my newest "wanted" items...
Wouldn't mind this above my door! (I have very deep framework around my doors)

I have a million ideas on how to use old stirrups! If I could only find one cheap!

Framed books on horses would be a cool feature for the stable!

I am also always on the hunt for blogs/sites/magazines with some good equestrian decor ideas and details. Know of any? Please let me know :)
