The holidays bring an influx of new products joining the day to day routine of most equestrians across the world. As the holidays come to a close, I have compiled a list of my top 5 favorite things I got this month!
1. MDC Super Sport Stirrups With Flex Sides
These stirrups were a game changer for me. I have some knee problems and these stirrups eliminated almost all my pain while riding. The flex sides are shock absorbing to help take the shock off your joints. Also, the rotating top helps to keep your feet in the correct position and steady your leg. If you are interested in purchasing a pair of these stirrups you can find them on MDC’s website (here) for $210.
2. Alessandro Albanese Free Button Long Sleeve Shirt
I grabbed this shirt at my favorite consignment store, On Course Consignment in Wellington, for a steal and it is now my new favorite shirt. It has fantastic moisture-wicking fabric so you can stay cool even though it is long sleeved. Also, since the shirt is long sleeve, if you add some layers, it will be a great base layer for riding in colder weather! If you would like to pick up a shirt of your own you can find it on Horseware, Alessandro Albanese’s sister company, site here for $75.
3. Equiline Boston Breeches
I also grabbed these amazing breeches on consignment at On Course for an absolute steal. I swear that these pants are a second skin. They even have pockets, REAL pockets that actually fit stuff in them. Girls know how much this quality means. Plus, who doesn’t want quick access to their phone to take all the photos of your adorable horse am I right? Seriously, if you are in the market to purchase a pair of high-end, long lasting breeches, these are definitely ones to try out. You can purchase them here for $324.
4. Lululemon Base Runner 1/2 Zip
Indiana’s cold weather can be brutal for riding. I needed something that could keep me warm when tacking up, setting jumps, etc but I at the same time, something that was breathable to keep me from overheating while riding. With the combination of moisture-wicking fabric and mesh venting, it keeps you comfortable while you sweat. It also has multiple pockets for treats, your phone, and whatever other knick-knacks you need. You can find it on Lululemon’s site here for $98.
5. Dover Saddlery Classic Flash Bridle
I am a sucker for matching tack and I hate when mine doesn’t. So, when I was searching for a brown version of the bridle in Liam’s current one, I stumbled upon one that was basically just the brown version of his current one. With some oiling, it should match my saddle and custom browband very well. It fits Liam super well and has his favorite feature, a monocrown. Also, his nose pad fits well under the noseband so Liam is comfortable at all times. If you would like to purchase you can find it at Dover Saddlery (here) for $179.95.
Those are the best buys for me this month! Have anything you want me to try out and feature? Feel free to DM on Instagram @equestrian.syd !
