I'm proud to be sponsored by these amazing companies. Please visit their websites to learn more about them.
I have two custom tailcoats from Flying Changes. I have been buying tailcoats for a long time, but these are the first ones that actually, truly fit me. The totally custom tailoring means that they can fit you no matter what, and the coats are so beautiful, with all the custom trims. My Flying Changes tailcoats feel light to wear, but they still hold their shape beautifully.
Frantisi carries all the top brands, and that makes it so easy to shop for my favorites. Pikeur, Acavallo, Eskadron, GPA - Frantisi has them all, and Frantisi are such a wonderful company to work with.
Konigs is such a wonderful, well-established company, with a long tradition of excellence. Their boots have a beautiful shape, terrific durability. Riding so many horses a day, other brands I’ve worn have worn out SO quickly. Not Konigs - the durability of their boots has really impressed me. Plus, I love the elegant look of their boot design.
Eskadron has such beautiful blankets and pads. Their line offers these gorgeous, up-to-date designs and colors that are fun, and classy too. Eskadron’s quality is phenomenal, and I LOVE the fit of the blankets.
Anique riding shirts are just - wonderful. They are made of high quality material that really keeps a good shape, not heavy but not too clingy, and they feel so good to ride in. I fell in love with the colors, and with all the details, like the super soft fabric, the zipper garage, the pretty rose gold zipper… Two other things I love - Anique is made in the USA, and their Kold Kids program donates 10% of proceeds to provide outerwear to kids living in poverty in the USA and around the globe.
I have been feeding Platinum Performance since 2011 and have had great results with all the products . Besides their general maintainance products for the high performance horse, I have horses that have specific needs such as seasonal allergy problems with coughing where I use the Skin and Allergy with great results . A horse that was suffering from bad ulcers I can now keep ulcer free with Platinum products, and a few horses that I had a hard time putting weight on are thriving now that I'm using Healthy Weight Oil. Platinum also has incredible customer care!
Dressage Sport Boots were developed by a dressage trainer, who understands how important it is to have a boot that protects my horses' legs AND be both high quality convenient to use. DSB boots are such an important part of my program, keeping my horses' legs protected in turnouts and work.
I love the classic style of Pikeur with the fun accents. I have been wearing Pikeur pants for the past 32 years ! They have a perfect and flattering cut , the absolute best on the market .
My GPA helmet feels so lightweight, and is snug in a way that feels both comfortable and safe. Some helmets can feel a little loose, but my GPA helmet is more fitted to my head; riding in my GPA helmet, I feel confident that I’m protected. And even on hot days, the helmet is comfortable to wear, because it has a great ventilated design.
I tried Foothuggies socks for one week and fell in love! They are soft, mold to my feet, protect me from boot rubs, and keep my feet cool & dry. I've always had problems with socks not lasting long enough - with the quality of my Foothuggies socks, I don't have that problem with them! And now they've added an ultra-thin line, with the same durability but a much thinner feel I love. Plus - they're made in the USA.
HyGain makes only equine nutritional products, and their philosophy is that high quality feed is the most important element in keeping a horse healthy. I love that! I believe in a high quality, organic, non-GMO diet myself, because I know it keeps keeps me healthy and feeling good - so I’m thrilled to have found a feed for my horses that is the same high quality. And my horses look and feel great - good top line, shiny coats, lots of energy.
Acavallo makes these amazing lightweight, soft gel half pads that allow the horse’s skin to breath while they maintain contact with the saddle. They fit perfectly on my horses’ backs, helping to keep them in top form, and because they help my horses feel comfortable, my horses can perform at their best.
I have been training horses professionally since 1986, and being from Germany I have been a huge fan of Roeckl Gloves since then. I even remember the leather Roeckl Gloves as a fine glove that was highly sought after by the non-equestrian. I have always loved the Roeckl Gloves for their quality, the great design, and fun colors - and especially for the fact that I protect my hands but yet still feel them, and therefore can communicate the smallest detail and finesse of my ring fingers.
Horse and Rider Boutique is another of my favorite places to find my riding clothes! They sell all the European brands I love, and their customer service is the best.
With the number of hours I spend in the saddle, having a stirrup that helps make my ride comfortable is such a joy. I love the way my MDC stirrups makes it easy to put my stirrup exactly where I want it.
Ippos International makes top quality sport bags designed to have all of your riding gear in one bag. They design garment bags too. This is a powerhouse mother/daughter duo, Vicki and Jessica from Orange County, CA. I love their beautiful design - and they're made in the USA !!!!
I spend so much time out in the sun - I really appreciate how LHB products protect my skin! I also appreciate that they are free of toxins, have no artificial colors or fragrances - and are cruelty-free.
