Summer is in full swing and the hot street to stable equestrian fashion trends are better than ever! This is the time to be an Equestrian Fashionista, or as we like to say, Equestrianista. The days of dull, boring equestrian style are long gone. Even in the hunter jumper ring where tradition reigns supreme hints of shimmer and shine can be seen these days. And of course your dressage divas have long been a fan of anything that pushes equestrian trends to new heights. We've put together a list of our fave fashion trends even the most conservative equestrian will want to try. From the schooling ring to the show ring these equestrian brands will ensure you always look city to barn ready!

GhoDho Breeches

GhoDho recently updated their offering with new styles, colorways, and sizing.  GhoDho breeches are the must have riding pants for any fashion loving equestrian! Featuring a new contoured seaming detail over the bum to give you that "horseback riding is my cardio" sculpted booty. What's not to love with a new mid rise, plus grippy geometric silicone in both full seat or knee patches, and a soft flexible knit leg cuff for a form fitting feel under your riding boots. In colors that make you look runway-ready, you can’t go wrong adding these to your #OOTD or #ROOTD wardrobe!

Equestrianista T-Shirts

Our line of short sleeve schooling tees beautifully take you from street to stable in uncompromising style. Our t-shirts are among the trendiest equestrian apparel offerings out there. We create only the softest, most feminine styles that make you feel as good as you look. Making them perfect for days you have to run from shopping, to lunch, to the barn. Our newest release, the Leopard Signature Short Sleeve, is Carrie Bradshaw approved and already a fave of equestrian influencers and bloggers alike.

MangoBay Design Belts

Belts are the sprinkles on your ice cream, the stilettos to your Friday night, the Boyd Martin to my wedding day...woops, got off track there! You get the picture! Belts are the style topper to any riding outfit; schooling or horse show.  We have loved the Mango Bay collection for years. They are a great width, lay perfectly flat in your belt loops and come in a plethora of patterns and colors. The webbing material can be tossed in the laundry right along with your clothes. But probably my favorite part about Mango Bay is that they are made by a true, original artist. Pamela designs, screen prints and sews them right here in the US!

Samshield Helmets

Samshield has an array of helmet options - from sporty to traditional. This on-trend equestrian brand can be seen across all disciplines; dressage, hunters, and jumpers. Samshield’s helmets offer a wide variety of sizes and options, and even  include removable liners for easy washing. You can go wrong whether you choose a matte black for the schooling ring, or a show stopping glitter version for the dressage ring - Samshield has a model for every Equestrianista. 

Equestrianista Sweaters

Our signature Perfect Fit Logo Sweater can be seen from sea to shining sea on the summer circuits! Designed with a merino wool blend, this sweater is the perfect breathable sweater to layer for chilly summer show mornings and is a staple all winter long. Always a customer favorite due to its slightly contoured fit, flattering v-neckline and longer length that ensures great coverage!

Which of these arena trends is your favorite? ~ Julie

Equestrianism is in our DNA. It’s who we are as a small biz, a brand and women. Our lives revolve around this lifestyle, just as yours does.

For our latest collection, we were influenced by the riders and customers that keep us driven to meet their equestrian fashion needs. These women are non-conformists with busy lifestyles, and a love for limitless fashion. From the hunter jumper ring at the Ledges Sporthorses, to the dressage arena at Lamplight Equestrian Center, the women that sporting EQUESTRIANISTA are fashion influencers in their own right.

These iconic women share that they want riding apparel designed to hug all of the right places. So we added even more pieces to the line that contain a touch of spandex to highlight your hard-earned, equestrian curves, without loosing shape. 

Get noticed and be spotted in leopard! A timeless classic that always ups your fashion game. Our newest Equestrianista Signature Short Sleeve combines our love for quality and our passion for fashion. 

Leopard too wild for even your wild side? Our Star Signature Short Sleeve has all the subtle details of a true team USA equestrian. This beauty is soft and simple,  crafted from scrumptious cotton blend to bring vintage class to your outfit while delivering a flawless look.

Built to last. We like our tops like we like our horses...exceptional.

Great news! The love for leopard print in fashion is not going anywhere, anytime soon!

From the runways of Paris to the pages of Vogue - leopard print is alive (well, ok not alive) and well...very well! Vogue was quoted as saying “When all else fails, go with an animal print”. We say, no matter what the day will bring, go with animal print - leopard in particular. 

Why leopard? Because it never really slinks out of fashion. Why? Because it's a statement maker whether you're pairing it with distressed denim for a casual day of errands, or to up the ante of those faux leather leggings you'll rock on the town tonight. 

If you flip the pages of any current style magazines you would swear every girl from New York to LA owns a leopard-print slip dress or top. Short sleeve tees are our favorite here at EQUESTRIANISTA because you can wear it all year. Spring and summer a leopard print t-shirt elevates your #ROOTD and allows you to go from street to stable in one chic snap. Once the temperatures drop, you can layer it with your favorite leather motto or denim jacket to the office or under a comfy fleece schooling full zip at the barn.

The street style 2019 scene is full of women experimenting with how they pair their favorite leopard print piece. We say "it's ALL good" because how you style it is half the fun! #thearenaisyourrunway 

Be spotted in our new Signature Short Sleeve and unleash your wild side!

xoxo Julie, Sophia & Whitney

Evolution did not intend for horses to live like we keep them today. Their bodies evolved to slowly walk and graze for the majority of their day with a dose of snoozing and/or running from predators (or the shadow that looked like a predator :).

Here are a few modern day stressors that could leave you dealing with an ulcer:

  1. Limited grazing due to a small paddock and/or stall time. Thus, large twice daily feedings.
  2. Excessive grain consumption due to trying to make up for the lack of vitamins and minerals lacking in dry forage, rather than fresh pasture.
  3. Regular riding or training sessions. This is especially stressing on an empty stomach.
  4. Change in the mixture of the forage fed.
  5. Lack of movement due to stall confinement.
  6. Stress to the immune system due to trailering.
  7. Pecking order change due to herd additions or deletions.

One, or all, of these ulcer risks are present for every horse today. Small changes to these risks can be beneficial to your equine. For instance, periodic feedings throughout the day, supplements to less grain consumption to meet the needs of vitamins and minerals, giving your horse forage prior to riding or training sessions, more frequent time outside for stalled horses, and ulcer prevention supplements prior to trailering. Obviously, if you can not alter the amount of time they spend out in a large field to roam, ride less (why else would we own them), or ensure their herd mates stay the same until the day they die, then you will need to work with your vet to discuss options to orally provide support to your horse. 

We hope this blog post has given you some ideas for ways you can personally support your horse to lessen his risk for ulcers.

It seems like every time I post a picture of my thoroughbred gelding wearing his Micklem bridle I get questions about how it fits, and how my horse likes its anatomically contoured design. I did a lot of research when looking to purchase a new dressage bridle for my OTTB who had a heavy mouth, combined with my heavy hands, and a sensitive personality in general. 

When I purchased the Rambo Micklem bridle 7 years ago they were relatively alien looking to many equestrians, me included. I thought they looked unappealing, but was willing to set aside my vain side for my horse's comfort. 

Calvin was immediately receptive to the bridle. I personally thought he felt lighter. Whether it was somehow making me lighter in my hands, thus making him lighter, or it actually made him lighter in the mouth, regardless it felt good and we were both very happy. 

I thought it was fairly affordable given the research that appeared to go into the anatomically contoured craftsmanship of this bridle. The leather was adequately supple and has held up amazingly well.   

It now comes in a beautiful tanned leather option of a dark brown and black, as well as a browband with the traditional hunter stitching. I don't even ride in the hunter or equitation ring and am pining for one of these for my big red gelding.

Sometimes dressing up for your ride just makes you feel good and ride better. Let EQUESTRIANISTA take care of your need for equestrian style that takes you from errands, to brunch with girlfriends, to the barn. 

You rely on your trainer to help you create a training schedule that builds on the bond between you and your horse. Your horse relies on you to keep him happy and healthy. You rely on your horse to walk, trot, and canter wherever you point him, carry you along a rugged trail, and give you muzzle kisses on days that nothing is going right. 

We know that equestrian apparel and accessories that look good for all of this is as important as each of these moments are. We work everyday to curate, design, and bring you styles that allow you to run through life and enjoy everything this equestrian lifestyle brings.

Equestrian or not, as women fashion plays an important role in our lives. Many of us love flipping through the pages of style mags to see what celebs and influencers are wearing. And as equestrians we spend equal time scrolling through the latest #ROOTD on Instagram.

Our lives may not revolve around what colors Pantone (company who's system for matching colors is used in specifying printing inks) is predicting to be the hottest of the year, but it does affect us from fashion trends, home decor trends, and even hair color trends. Yes, the color of 2019 is already a thing in hair color!

Well, it's here! According to Pantone 2019's color of the year will be Living Coral!

As we've come to expect from Pantone, their choice for 2019 is bold and statement making. Pantone describes Living Coral as: An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge, Living Coral marries the best of two worlds – pastels and neons.

At EQUESTRIANISTA, we would describe Living Coral as a hue somewhere between orange and pink, charming and modern, soft and loud, sweet and sophisticated. This color is truly a modern mix and allows for a range of applications and interpretations.

A range of coral offerings can be found in equestrian fashion at the moment. From Spooks Equestrian to Ariat, riding tops to breeches, saddle pad to polo wraps, you can find the perfect shade of coral to keep your equestrian style game strong!

EQUESTRIANISTA loves glam leisure and sport luxe in equestrian fashion more than anyone. So don't worry we are working on style and swagger that will have us, and you, crushing the competition this year!

Everywhere you look the street style look for camouflage is going strong...and we mean like the Hulk kind of strong. Street style is all about making bold fashion statements, and that’s exactly what camo does to any ensem. It doesn't matter how you wear it; top, bottom, bag, shoes, accessories, etc. etc. Camouflage makes you look like a fashion insider the moment you pull it on.

An Equestrianista may not be able to rock the loose-fit trousers or sneakers while at the barn or riding, but you know we wouldn't let that stop us from keeping you the fashion insider of the barn! :) Our newest addition to our trademark design collection is on-trend and on-point!

Whether styling a pair of GhoDo moto breeches with it or building a look around this pullover to make it the stand out star, you can’t go wrong by adding this Equestrian {ista} Camo Sweatshirt to your wardrobe. The classic print truly never goes out of style, and we've made it feel fresh with our trademark brand emblazoned across it in metallic orange. Show us how all you equestrian fashionistas are wearing it!
