As equestrians we’re surrounded by fine leather. Saddles, bridles, girths, boots, the list goes on. So it makes sense that our love affair with leather doesn’t stop with our tack. Today, we’re taking a look at the leather items we’re obsessed in this summer!
First off, how can you not love a company that’s named after it’s founder and her horse? Tucker Tweed Equestrian was founded by Jill Tweedy and inspired by her horse Tucker and Jill’s unceasing adoration of all things equine. The luxurious handbags, totes, satchels, wallets and iPad covers are embossed with distinct hunter/jumper, dessage or foxhunting images. These leather goods are made of the softest, supplest leather and come in several colors, from classic to vibrant.
If you love shoes, especially really comfortable and superbly stylish shoes, Katharine Page’s lovely leather sandals are made for you! Founder Katharine Page grew up on the ‘A’ circuit. She always admired the beauty, simplicity and craftsmanship of the show horse’s bridles. So in 2012 an idea was born: create a line of fine women’s sandals inspired by the classic appearance of the bridles worn by our beloved horses.
Currently there are 7 different styles of sandals available (we love that they are cleverly named after popular hunter/jumper venues like Del Mar and Keswik) with unique slip on and buckle styles to choose from. All of her sandals, with the exception of the bling-blingy Palm Beach, have the fabulous fancy stitching that harkens back to their inspiration. And don’t be fooled by their minimal appearance either, they are deceivingly comfortable and the straps quickly break-in to hug your feet.
These sandals are a must have summer accessory!
In the riding world a belt is one of those items that can take your look from average to enviable. That’s why we feel having a healthy collection of chic belts is a necessity! Duftler does a superb job of furnishing the style-savvy rider with a wide selection of belts to help coordinate your daily attire. Their 2” wide spur belt comes in more than a dozen colors so you can coordinate with any outfit you can imagine. And there are several choices in patent, matte, and snakeskin; some with silver and some with gold buckles. Duftler also makes a very unique stirrup belt that comes in black, white and brown snakeskin.
