Hi guys, this is my horse Cayuse! I believe this is her first appearance on the blog.
I’ve had her since I was 12 years old. We used to ride on a drill team and have traveled all over together. We’ve ridden in many parades (including the Kentucky Derby Parade and the National Veterans Day Parade, rodeos and performances across the country. We’ve even spent 2 weeks traveling to & from Canada for a performance!
For the past 10 or so years I’ve ridden dressage with her (my horse folks will know what that means). And even more recently, Cayuse is living the good life of retirement (TONS of pasture time, hay, carrots, and love from my mom). She lives in Ohio in my hometown — thankfully we have an incredible team who cares for her there.
I love equestrian fashion. Generally, there are two types of equestrian fashion. These two types are divided according to the type of equestrian riding they’re representing.
English horseback riders traditionally wear “preppy” style clothes — shirts with collars, wellington boots, plaids, conservative belts, pastels, and tall black riding boots.
Western horseback riders wear looks that people would associate with a “cowboy” vibe –cowboy boots, jeans, belt buckles, cowboy hats, and button down shirts tucked in.
The look I’m wearing above is V preppy.
The green wellie boots I’m wearing are from a company called Joules. They’re very similar to the Hunter boots style. Joules is actually a British brand, but they’re clothing + footwear is very popular in the equestrian world.
here are some of my favorite Joules boots I’m obsessed with:
Have a great week! Xx, Kathryn
