Equestrian At Hart Blog Hop: Equestrian Wardrobe

Equestrian At Hart Blog Hop series begins! The first question is..... I want to know about what you ride in and why? Show us your Equestrian Fashion choices and tell us why you wear them!

Boots: I find myself gravitating towards the Ariat Volant- not a traditional show boot- but it's seriously the most comfortable boot I've ever worn. I'm riding in the Volant S but you can also find me in a pair of Challenge in Cognac or Monacos for show. 

Breeches: It's a toss up between Tailored Sportsman and the Ariat Olympia. Always a front zip. TS has far and away the best color assortment but the Olympia has some fun fashion detailing. 

Shirt: I have a few EIS sun shirts and I love them- the hand, the colors- not the cost. I prefer to ride in long sleeves all the time so have an assortment of sun shirts and when winter comes I do have a couple of Ariat Lowell tops
Not gonna lie- have been eyeballing some Under Armour. I usually wear the lululemon Y Power Tank as my base layer. 

Helmet: Charles Owen Ary8- although in the market for a new one after my spill last week. Curious about the new V8. 

Accessories: And this is where I become decidedly unstylish. Hairnet for every ride. Socks with holes in them. No gloves (I have two pairs- one Ariat, one IDK (that's I don't know for short) that reluctantly are pulled out for show). No belts (many belts that don't get worn). 
The one thing I do wear day in and day out is my horseshoe necklace, a gift from my husband.

  1. I had a pair of the original vented Ariat Volants for several years, they were definitely comfy. I like the new ones with the blue on the top.

  2. How can you not wear gloves? That would drive me crazy, for some reason after working at a barn I have become someone who needs gloves 100% of the time. :) I am too embarassed to to this blog hop because I ride in muck boots and sweats too often!

    I love the horseshoe necklace!

  5. You'll have to let us know what helmet you are going with once you find one! Also, I would die without gloves-you are a much stronger woman than I!
