She also has a promising stable of up-and-coming horses. One of her recent acquisitions is a swanky five-year old German Sport Horse, Can Be Sweet. Known around the barn as Charlie, he has “the gallop, movement and jump to be as elegant as any at the top of the sport.” Her other new new ride, Caletina, is a six-year-old Holsteiner mare. “She is an amazing jumper with a fighting spirit,” Lauren notes. Like Purdy, both horses are owned by syndicates (all of which still have a few shares up for grabs).
Her Goode Rider breeches are up to the task through all of it. “I love that the breeches are so stylish and unbelievably durable. I ride horses all day, every day and have yet to wear out a pair of GR breeches. Plus, their styles for each season are so fun and attractive. I always get questions about my outfits.”
Although she tries to give herself one day off a week to hike and cook (and cheer on her fiancé when he competes in Spartan Racing, which involves navigating a high-intensity obstacle course), she admits that you have to clock in the hours. “Learn to work hard even when you are tired,” the Goode Rider athlete advises aspiring professionals. “Don’t be a victim of your circumstances but a champion because of them.”
