The Equestrian Stylebook: April | Sponsored By Grand Champion Tack & Saddlery

This month, I partnered with my local tack shop, Grand Champion Tack & Saddlery, to bring my preps the April edition of The Equestrian Stylebook! All of these products* are available at Grand Champion so make sure to check them out online here.

I was lucky enough to be able to shoot on location at Carben Farms in Wellington, Florida. My gorgeous modeling partner in crime in Twinkie the Wonder Pony who is a Grand Prix dressage horse. In this shoot, Twinkie sports his Schockemoehle Sports Jumper Bridle w/ Crank in Havana ($324.00).

Finding the perfect riding outfit is one of the hardest things in the world. With so many different brands and styles to choose from, there are so many great options. And, as much as I would like to be, none of us are made of money, so pricing is something that most of us have to be very cautious of. I have compiled a stylebook with 3 1/2 great outfits that every equestrian can rock!

Floral Frenzy:

Everyone who reads the stylebook on a regular basis knows how much I love navy in all forms. But this outfit of navy USG breeches and a floral Joules sleeveless polo take the cake. With soft and flexible material and contrast piping, these breeches feel like a second skin. This outfit will defiantly wow when schooling at shows or at home!

  • USG By KL Select Lara Breech in Navy: $198.00
  • Joules Cheeky Polo in Bright White: $52.95
  • Tonics Fabulous Shoes Space Paddock Boots in Black: $329.00
  • Tonics Fabulous Shoes Triton Half Chap in Black: $239.00

Flower Power:

This was probably my favorite photo from the entire photoshoot

This month I have been crazy about florals. Joules has treated me well with their very spring flower filled collection. When I saw the fun pinks and gray I knew that I had to pick up this hoodie and pair it with something. Flower Power is more of a casual day at the barn outfit with gray breezes paired with a loose fit hoodie.

  • Joules Hoodie in Marlston Print: $69.95
  • Devon-Aire® Signature Classic Knee-Patch Breech in Charcoal/Black- $99.95
  • Tonics Fabulous Shoes Space Paddock Boots in Black: $329.00
  • Tonics Fabulous Shoes Triton Half Chap in Black: $239.00

Jumper Turns:

This show ensemble is the classic jumper look with a hidden flare. It is paired with white breeches for Classic Day, but the white could easily be switched out for a tan pair. I recommend the Ghodho Fiona Show Breech ($199.00) for a professional look with some character.

Sugar Plum Pony:

For the final outfit of the month, I wanted to bring a more untraditional look to the schooling ring. By pairing a Tailored Sportsman Sun Shirt with white breeches you bring a comfortable, everyday look to the next level. The sun shirt provides UV protection and keeps you cool while riding, even though it is long sleeve.

Twinkie The Wonder Pony:

As a little extra at the end of this post, I wanted to feature my partner in crime for this photoshoot and his outfits. Mr. Twinkie was sporting his Schockemoehle Sports Jumper Bridle w/ Crank in Havana. This bridle offers versatility in that it has an interchangeable flash and can convert to a double bridle if necessary for the horse being ridden in it. You can purchase it for $324.00 in with Havana (pictured) or Oak Bark. Twinkie also wanted to wear a Samshield Helmet but sadly they don’t make his size yet and he was very unhappy but wore it anyway because he wouldn’t trust any other brand to protect his noggin. The horse size Samshield is coming soon to a dealer near you😉

I also want to give some recognition to my amazing friend and trainer, Lauren Knopp, for being my last minute photographer. She kept me sane through all the crazy of finding a location, a horse to model with, make-up looks, poses, and for encouraging me to bring out the model within me. I couldn’t be more thankful for her and she deserves so love on this post too.

I hope that this stylebook helps my fellow preps with your styling. More to come with next months Equestrian Stylebook!

Until  next  time  Preps,

Sydney
