The Modern (and very fancy) Equestrian

Of all the equestrian brands I have seen, there is really nothing that compares to Hermès. From the quality of their leather goods, to the elegant simplicity of their items, their collection is truly a fashion forward equestrian's dream.

From Wikipedia: "Fashion Model Directory dubbed the Hermès look as 'the height of luxury with a nod to the house's equestrian heritage.'"

In the past I have posted pictures of the Hermès windows in NYC and the Hermès crop that I own and never use. I also own a scarf that was given to me for my 21st birthday, but that's in a box somewhere and I'd like to iron it out before posting pictures.

Anyways, here are some horsey Hermès items that might perk your equestrian interest.

Paris a encore des chevaux/Horses are in Paris, by Sophie de Seynes. French-English. Paperback.






Grooming bag



Cleaning and maintenance milk for leather.



Polo wraps (set of 2)



Hermes comb for horses.

The Modern Equestrian

Thanks to my friend Regina, I have now found a new addiction to take time away from being productive at work.

What planet have I been on that I didn't know about the Facebook page "Judge My Ride?" The info on the page says "Judge my ride is the original world wide 'global' equestrian experience! We invite you to submit your best videos for individual scoring and commentary by the top judges, riders and trainers in Equestrian sports!" It was founded by Noelle King and Robert Gage. Official Judges: Robert Gage, Carol Dean-Porter, Sharon Stewart-Wells.

You simply submit your photo or video and one of these judges will give you feedback. I was surprised how quick I got feedback of a picture of me competing at an IHSA show a few months ago.

In summary: addicting.
