Ahhh, the life of an equestrian style blogger.
Glamorous, right? Oh yes, darling, it totally IS. Blogging is an absolute dream come true! First, I wake up with perfect bed-head (of course) and slip into the latest from Equiline, Horseware, or will it be Fior da Liso? Decisions. Decisions. Then it's off to the barn for an impeccable ride and photo shoot with my absolutely amazing horses, a quick lunch with Rebecca Ray, a mani-pedi with Noel Asmar (kiss-kiss) and (exhausted, but can't cancel now) cocktails with the Schockemohles. It would all be so utterly perfect if those pesky reps from Hermes would just get the hint - ORANGE just isn't my color!
Well wake up and smell the Marigold Rehydrant Spray from Eqyss, because the truth is, I blog because I am by nature ... a frump. You see, as much as I would love to have been born impeccably constructed, with an innate sense of classic style, capable of throwing on a feed sack and looking like dressage rider/model/blogger (so totally unfair!) Chloe Vell, I wasn't.
For me, pulling off "equestrian chic" takes work ... a really large hat ... and some help. PROFESSIONAL help. That's why boutique retailer Exceptional Equestrian is always in my favorites and at the top of my speed-dial list. Exceptional Equestrian's brands? The best. Customer service? Above and beyond. Style advice? Impeccable.
For nearly 10 years, founder Cindy Lay has curated a collection of the finest equestrian apparel and accessories from around the world.

Featured is the amazing Asmar All Weather Rider Lightweight in Light Grey (also available in Black, Black Plaid, Cobalt, Coal with Pink, Tangerine and new Punch and Sunshine colors for 2015). The AWR is an absolute "necessary luxury" for spring, and it's available from Exceptional Equestrian, of course; $320.00.
Thank you, Cindy and Exceptional Equestrian. Hat's off to YOU!
