As if we didn’t have it well enough here in sunny Wellington, we occasionally get blessed with a cold front of below 15 degrees Celsius here and there enabling riders to get giddy excited about pulling out the hidden away uggs, sweaters and scarves. While most of the hemisphere is actually freezing, we get a couple weeks of fantastically chilly weather allowing us to strut around the barn showcasing a little winter fashion style! I know riders anywhere else that’s having winter right now probably found another reason to be envious of the Winter Equestrian Capital! I’m sorry ;) kinda...
As promised on my Instagram post, here are links to each item of clothing in my post! The fleece tights eliminate that cold saddle leather shock when you mount, and keep you cozy the whole ride without overheating your booty. It is from For Horses USA and can be found here:- www.forhorsesusa.com/collections/womens-breeches/products/junie
With the tights (and actually any pair of breeches) I like to wear my signature “ELLESSE” sweater. If you don’t know much about the brand it’s actually an Italian tennis brand! BUT they make super luxe feeling activewear! Here is where I got my sweater:- m.asos.com/us/ellesse/ellesse-funnel-neck-zip-top-with-back-logo/prd/8564987?clr=graymarl&SearchQuery=ellesse&gridcolumn=1&gridrow=19&gridsize=2&pge=1&pgesize=72&totalstyles=49
If your more of a vest kind of person here is a vest that matches the tights perfectly:- https://www.forhorsesusa.com/collections/womens-outerwear/products/ester?variant=39033999693

I cant believe its finally out! Thank you so much Noelle Floyd Style for coming out to film me and "What's in My Tack Trunk"! It's such an honour to be included among other top riders in this very educational collection of videos! I hope you guys enjoy this video and maybe find some cool tips and product ideas! Hopefully my voice isn't too shaky from my nerves!! :(

As we sit here during the break, waiting for the final round of the FEI World Cup Showjumping Final, I can't help but reflect on what a phenomenal winter season my team and I have had! Here's a little background on the season and some photos and links :)
Back when I arrived in Wellington in November, I brought both my older GP horse Ive had for a couple years, and my new horse whom I had only been with for barely a month at the time. To be honest, I had no idea if, how, and when I would be comfortable with my new GP ride and almost 5 months later, Im still not very comfortable with him 100% of the time, but we have grown and come together so much these past few months in Florida.
From super-power mash mixes, recovery machines, horse spas and therapeutic treatments; here's a little post sharing what we do post-show to keep the horses happy, healthy and fit for the intense Wellington season! Scroll down for more!
We've been here just over a week now (one of our jumpers just arrived though!) and it actually hasnt been too bad settling in.
The puppies, I think, have settled in the easiest but then again what a life they have here! Backyard to chase lizards in, air-conditioning and dog beds, hours at the stables, endless people to play with at the stables and at their dad's office- oh to be a dog! ;)
