3. PURCHASE: MUST HAVE!

Le Fash's long sleeve Paulo Alto with polka dots is a limited edition design created exclusively for KAVAL. Made from Chitosante® treated knit fabric, this top is soft, highly breathable, moisture wicking and cooling and has UPF 50 sun protection. 

Why I purchased this blouse? Sun protection should be a high priority regardless of age. I understand the practical importance of wearing white/light colored sun shirts, but I am a complete mess by the time I leave the stable after grooming and cleaning tack. The black body hides these marks and looks incredibly stylish with the polka dot trim on the collar and cuff. KAVAL and Le Fash nailed this collaboration. Made in NY.

4. READ ONLINE: THE ART OF BEING GOCHMANS 

EQ Living has evolved into the pinnacle of American equestrian publications that is fit for the most sophisticated coffee table. The publisher consistently raises the barre of both the content and photography with each subsequent edition.

This article resonated with me because it emphasizes the objective of one of my favorite places to nourish my body, Becky Gochman’s “Farm Stand” at WEF.  EQ Living explains, “…Becky wanted to bring horse-show food to another level by showing people that healthy offerings can taste good. They leased the area at WEF that had previously housed the original food court, brought in an old French Citroën food truck, and named one of the trendy food kiosks “Tess and Co.” after their housekeeper, who cooks fresh, healthy food. Offerings include green juices, nut milks, wheatgrass and aloe shots, matcha cookies named after Sophie, and Mimi’s vegan chocolate chip cookies." Photo credit: The Book, llc

The
The "Hunt" for the Perfect Bridle

September 26, 2019

Applying over three decades of experience within the meta-luxury leatherwork segment, Susan Benson, the founder of Somerset Equestrian Trading has recently released her own custom collection custom made in England:  SET Bridles.  Explains Susan, I wanted to create a classic, traditional hunter bridle of the best quality. I felt there was a demand for a special bridle and the distinctive fancy sewn stitching would set it apart but also accentuate not overpower the beautiful head.
