5 Famously Fashionable Equestriennes: Celebrities Edition

Kaley Cuoco, Equestrian Fashionista

It’s time for round two of our Famously Fashionable Equestrians series! After all, there are few things that are more enjoyable than perusing photos of your favorite celebrities on horseback. Enjoy these tidbits about leading ladies who ride in their down time.

Kaley Cuoco

Having ridden since she was a teenager, the Big Bang Theory star is an avid competitor. “It’s become a very important part of my life, very serious,” Cuoco told Jimmy Kimmel. “It kind of levels me out with this whole Hollywood thing.” Her equine family includes a stable of bays, a miniature horse named Shmooshy, and her boyfriend, professional show jumper Karl Cook.

Hilary Duff

Hilary Duff, Equestrian Fashionista

The actress and fashionista, who has a fashion line called “Stuff by Hilary Duff,” grew up around horses. “I’ve loved riding and being around horses ever since I was little,” she says. “My family owns a ranch outside of Austin with lots of land and a great house, and my parents used to put my older sister, Haylie, and me on the ponies when we were babies. We may have been just about able to sit up, but we knew we had to hold on tight.”

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus, Equestrian Fashionista

Having grown up on a 500-acre farm near Nashville, perhaps it’s no surprise that the Tennesse-born singer is an equestrian. (Her two younger sisters, Brandi and Noah, also ride, competitively.) In 2015, Miley shelled out almost $5 million for her own private equestrian estate in Hidden Hills. Now that’s living the dream!

Madonna

Madonna, Equestrian Fashionista

Unlike some of the other celebrities on this list, the Material Girl reportedly took the reins in her 40s. She suffered a bad fall in 2005, cracking three ribs and breaking her collarbone and hand in the fall at her Wiltshire estate in the U.K. while celebrating her 47th birthday with family. However, she got back in the saddle (as soon as her managers would let her!). Nowadays, she’s even sharing her equestrian passion with her son, David.

Martha Stewart

Martha Stewart, Equestrian Fashionista

Of course Martha Stewart rides. In addition to her herd of five Friesians, she has a Fell pony and three Sicilian donkeys — plus a couple French Bulldogs. They all live at Martha’s gorgeous Cantitoe Farm, in Bedford, New York, where she has access to riding trails. You can just imagine what her stable look like — but you don’t have to.

Goode Rider for Girls

School is out for summer. For young riders, that just means there’s more time to spend at the barn! Check out our favorite pieces for budding equestrian fashionistas and outfit your girls with Goode Rider for the season. Whether she’s hitting the summer show circuit for the first time or just practicing her bareback skills (what’s summer for, after all?), she’ll be riding in style all summer long.

 

Goode Rider Girls Happy Polo

Happy Polo

Silky yet technical, this polo is as functional as it is flattering. It’s perfect for schooling or just hanging out at the barn on those lazy summer afternoons. We love the mother of pearl buttons on placket and a fun leaping horse design on the back that reads, “Kick up your heels.” Too cute!

 

Goode Rider Girls Active Jacket

 

Active Jacket

This pretty periwinkle athletic jacket is perfect for chilly mornings. Made out of lightweight, stretchy polarfleece and quilted nylon, it’s warm yet streamlined. The silver horse bit pulls on the hidden pockets and cuffs are very on trend right now, as well.

 

Goode Henley

This long-sleeve, feminine V-neck henley  has logo embroidery and contrast overstitch throughout for a playful look. The moisture-wicking fabric is made out of cotton, spandex and — you’d never know it — bamboo! It’s perfect for covering up during long days in the summer sun.

 

Goode Rider Girls Horsebit Jeans

Horsebit Jeans

A lower rise and crystal-studded horse bit embroidery on the back pockets give these classic jean breeches a kick in the rear! The custom-fit waistband and velcro closures at the ankles make these stretchy bottoms adaptable for growing kids. They’re super comfy in the saddle, to boot.

 

Girls Ideal Show Shirt

This mock-neck zip-front show shirt is our bestselling show shirt made in girls sizes. We adore the princess seaming and contrast banding and stitching, which creates a streamlined silhouette. The moisture-wicking, antibacterial fabric has mesh under the arms — an absolute must-have for show season.

 

 

5 Ways to Spice Up Your Horse Show Style

Horse Show Style

Face it: horse show style is not very diverse. Depending on the discipline, it ranges from mildly boring to downright stifling (dressage riders, we’re looking at you). But that doesn’t mean you can’t express your personal style. There are plenty of opportunities for subtle twists in the details. Spice up your stale horse  show attire with one of these fashionable flourishes. You’ll be leaps and bounds above the rest of the pack.

Color

In the hunter ring, you have a number of options as far as color goes. Make the most of it! Go for a jewel-tone or pastel-colored shirt, like this burgundy shirt with a charcoal coat or an aqua shirt with chocolate brown. If you’re feeling bold, an interesting coat color will beautifully draw attention to any horse. For example, hunter green looks stunning on bright chestnuts or bays.

Prints

A subtle print can go a long way in the show ring. If your discipline allows it, try a nice checker or stripe under a solid colored coat. The Ideal Show Tank in black swirl is fun way to liven up a black-on-black pairing.

Bling

Stock ties, earrings and barrettes are classic options for adding a little bling. Think outside the box and add a little sparkle to your clothing itself. The Noble Show Shirt has beautiful crystal buttons—a perfect adornment for glitter-loving gals!

Ruffles

Even in disciplines that don’t allow for varied colors and prints, you can get away with a ruffle here and there. The Regal Show Shirt has cute ruffles on the bib that peek out from under your show coat.

Trim

Beautiful piping or trim on your coat is a classy way to squeeze some extra style into your ensemble. For example, the Iconic Competition Coat features beautiful buttons and ribbon trim. It also has pretty pleats and contrast pick-stitch embroidery to really make the details pop.
