Equestrian Artwork

Ever since Miles started feeling not quite right [all the way back on July 5] I’ve obviously been spending less time in the saddle, which means I’m not at the barn for hours on end and thus leaves me time to *gasp* do other things. It’s really a tremendous notion. I mean, what do normal non-horseback riding people do in the evenings and on weekends? I can only eat so much sushi and watch so many TV shows on Netflix before I get an itch to get up off my butt and get something done. And I’m not talking about being motivated to do chores around the house and run errands; I’ve been getting the itch to do fun stuff. So since Hubby and I resigned our apartment lease for another year, I thought I’d spruce the place up and change some of our decor. We’ve been in the place for almost four years, so I think a change of scenery is well over-due.

I’m not going to bore you with all the details about how I bought a new shower curtain and moved a lamp in living room, but one thing I did do [that I know you’ll like] is design some new artwork. Sure, I bought a few pieces from Etsy.com and Amazon.com, but wall decor gets expensive fast and I’m not looking to break the bank here. So I decided to make a few pieces of my own that turned out quite well, if I do say so myself. But once I was done, I still had all this creative mojo going on… so I kept designing. Lo and behold I created a set of four equestrian artwork pieces that I thought I’d share with all of you, au gratis. I tried to include a few different disciplines in my equestrian artwork designing endeavor, so hopefully there’s something for at least a few of you. Each equestrian artwork piece is design in black and white, size 10″ x 8″, but if you’re really in love and want them in a color, just send me an email and I’ll see what I can do.

Personally, I think they’d look so cute with a black frame, maybe as a set with a few photos of you and your horse. I could see them in an office [especially a barn office] or even in the tack room, if you like to decorate in there. Anyways, I hope you enjoy!

Friday Five Equestrian Necklaces

Friday Five: Equestrian Necklaces

I have a confession to make: necklaces are not my favorite piece of jewelry. I own a handful of necklaces, some gold, some silver, some small and simple, some large and chunky. But every day I find myself wearing the exact same one: a silver chain with a heart charm on it. My husband got it for me when we dating, so it certainly has a lot of special meaning… but I don’t think he’ll love me any less if I don’t wear it every single day. Moral of the story? I really need to get out of my comfort zone and buy a few more necklaces. So here are a few equestrian necklaces I’ve been drooling over. I have a bunch more listed on my Equestrian Style Pinterest Board, so if you’re looking for one that’s not on my list, go check there. I have a about a bazillion equestrian necklaces pinned, and even though some are a bit out of my price range currently, I promise they are all absolutely drool-worthy.

#1 Gold Snaffle Bit Equestrian Necklace

$38 on Etsy.com

There are a plethora of variations of the snaffle bit necklace out there; in fact it’s probably the single-most popular equestrian necklace… but for some reason this one really caught my eye. It’s a bit bigger and even though gold isn’t my favorite… I just love this one. I think it would be perfect for the fall, with a chunky brown sweater. Plus at $38 it’s not outrageously expensive, thank goodness.

#2 Silver Heart in Horseshoe Equestrian Necklace

$44.95 from BackintheSaddle.com

This necklace is right in my wheelhouse: a simple silver pendant on a silver chain. It might not be the most exciting piece of jewelry ever crafted, but it will go with every single outfit I own, and add an equestrian detail for anyone looking closely. Plus, I do think how the heart dangles inside the horseshoe makes it a little bit unique, and not just like every other horseshoe equestrian necklace.

#3 Initial and Horseshoe Equestrian Necklace

$18 on Etsy.com

This piece spoke to my inner pre-teen, horse-crazy self. With the little charms, and my initial… it was just too cute to now put on my list for under $20. For the charm, you can pick your birthstone or your favorite color and rejoice in a moment of pure teenage indulgence. Go ahead — I know you want to!

#4 Silver Warmblood Brand Equestrian Necklace

$84 from Loriece

So… obviously the theme here is silver pendants. But I guess I know what I like? Regardless, these warmblood brand pendants are really cool. The designer has DutchHanoverian, Holsteiner, Oldenburg, Swedish, Trakehner and Westphalian brand necklaces available. If I owned a horse of one of those breeds, you better bet I’d own one of these necklaces to go along with him.

#5 Gold Stirrup Equestrian Necklace

$18 Massimo Dutti

Finally, I’m branching out! Here’s a long, dangle gold statement piece that I absolutely adore. Again, I’m getting a fall vibe mostly, but I also think this would be super cute with a black flowing tank top during the summer or even a chunky sweater when it’s snowing.

Friday Five: Equestrian Rings

Friday Five: Equestrian Rings

You’ve seen my favorite bracelets, and my favorite belts; so let’s talk equestrian-style rings today. I wear three rings every day of my life: my wedding ring, a plain silver snaffle bit ring and a sparkly belt buckle ring that I got the first year I worked at Quarter Horse Congress. I’ve worn them all for so long that I can’t take them off because I feel naked without them… and because I have ridiculously horrible tan lines. Obviously I’m not going to be changing up my wedding ring with every outfit I wear, but I would like some more variety for my other fingers [isn’t that the theme of this entire series anyways?]. So I picked out my favorite equestrian-inspired jewelry for my digits:

#1 Infinite Luck Equestrian Ring

$199 from Luvinspired Jewelry

I’m hitting it hard right out of the gate with my splurge item this week. While it’s super pricey for a bit of metal on my finger, I have to admit that I absolutely adore the design of this ring! It comes in 925 sterling silver, but can be ordered in 10k or 14k Gold, Rose Gold or White Gold. While I usually am more of a silver metal girl, I actually really like this ring in gold — so classy an elegant I just had to have it on my list.

#2 Snaffle Bit Equestrian Ring

$28 from BaubleBar

A twist on the classic snaffle bit ring, I loved the modern take on this staple piece of equestrian jewelry. I already have a more traditional snaffle bit ring, but for this price I wouldn’t mind having two! This ring also comes in either silver or gold, so of course that got a big thumbs up from this girl. Variety is the spice of life!

#3 Offset Horseshoe Equestrian Ring

$74.95 from Rods.com

I used to have a horseshoe ring that I wore religiously, but it was cheap and stained my fingers green [gross]. I’d love to replace it with something a bit more grown-up and classy. I think this particular piece fits the bill spectacularly! Designed by Kelly Herd, this ring is more interesting than just a horseshoe attached to ring, and really speaks to the designer in me. It’s a little bit expensive for just a ring, but if I’m going for a more high-class look, it’s probably going to come with a more high-class price tag too… and this time I’m okay with it.

#4 Rose Gold Fox Equestrian Ring

$9 on Etsy.com

Okay, so this one isn’t really equestrian-inspired specifically, but it does have a “fox hunting” theme that I think is cool; like an ode to hunter/jumpers in the old days. Plus, you have to admit it is pretty cute and you can’t beat the price! So I apologize to all of you who ride anything other than hunter/jumper, because this ring probably doesn’t appeal to you whatsoever… but I just couldn’t help myself!

#5 Horseshoe Nail Heart Equestrian Ring

$67.95 from Rods.com

During my searches for equestrian-themed rings, I came across a lot of designs that were all very similar including horseshoe nails. At first, I was like “okay, these are kind of ugly.” I didn’t see a single one I liked, until I came across this one. In case your sensing a reoccurring motif of “modern twist on a classic idea” you’re really spot on, and so is this ring! A very feminine heart, with a few of a girl’s best friends [diamonds] all wrapped up in a horseshoe nail. Beautiful!

Do you wear rings everyday?

Friday Five Equestrian Belts

Friday Five: Equestrian Belts

Last week we talked bracelets for equestrian aficionados. This week, I want to hear all about your favorite equestrian belts. I wear belts all the time: with dress pants to work, with jeans to the movies and with breeches to the barn, I’ve always got one on. Right now, my entire arsenal of belts includes three options (1) plain brown belt (2) brown spur clasp belt and (3) plain black belt [and I bet you can guess exactly when I wear each one]. What I’m saying is, I need more belts because all of mine are woefully functional and absolutely no fun at all. And what’s the point in accessorizing if I’m not having any fun?! So without further ado, here are my top equestrian belts for all occasions.

#1 Figure 8 Leather Equestrian Belt

$85 from CleverWithLeather.com

I cannot express to you the absolute joy I experienced when I first saw this belt [or maybe I can because you’re probably having similar thoughts right now]. This gem of a belt is so ingenious, I fell in love immediately. It’s different, yet still classy and so uniquely equestrian; I’ve never seen anything like it. It comes in a few different color combinations, but of course I like the plain brown ones.

#2 Fence Gate Equestrian Belt

$195 from OughtonLimited.com

Even though this belt isn’t on the cheap side, I just had to include it. Simple, classy and elegant this brown buffalo leather belt promises to be butter soft from the moment you first put it on, and would be perfect to dress up your jeans for a night out, or even for helping out around the horse show.

#3 Snaffle Bit Graphic Equestrian Belt

$18 from Etsy.com

This super affordable cotton/poly equestrian belt comes in a plethora of colors and designs from Mango Bay on Etsy.com. This grey/navy snaffle design happens to be my personal favorite, but honestly you can’t go wrong with any of the options available. Plus, at $18 each, you can afford multiples to match all of your schooling and show outfits!

#4 Jump Equestrian Belt

$248 from Deux Chevaux

I know, I know I broke the bank with this one. But I had to have one belt on here that was splurge-worthy, and this one totally is. With either 14 karat gold satin or silver rhodium available for the buckle, this belt has the added bonus of being reversible… with five different leather color choices! Additional sayings include “Pony”, “Luck” and “Ride”.

#5 Horse Hair Inlay Equestrian Belt

$195 from PonyLocks.com

As I’ve said before, I’m not the biggest horse hair jewelry fan. But I do have a tail I’d like to do something with, and I absolutely love these belts. The horse hair is laid into the belt itself, and you can opt for not only various leather color combinations, but you can also add nameplates too. I saw these belts in person at Rolex this year, and they are nice. The materials were high-quality, and the owner was very nice and offered to do any type of custom order I could think of.

Equestrian Bracelets: Fly On Over's Five Favorites

Friday Five: Equestrian Bracelets

Recently I’ve been obsessed with adding some equestrian flair to my everyday life. Unfortunately my husband vetoed the idea of wallpapering our living room using all the rosette ribbons I’ve won, so I’m on to plan B: scouring the internet for some horsey details I can use all the time. I’ve looked at t-shirts, iPhone cases, socks and shoes, but I’ve really been digging the jewelry. So today I’m going to share some of my favorite accents: equestrian bracelets.

At work, I need to wear a watch… mostly because I lose track of time easily. But when I’m outside of work, I don’t want to obsessively look at my wrist. But now I feel naked without something there. Oh, what’s a girl to do?! Buy bracelets, naturally! Here’s a few of my favorites so far:

#1 Sterling Silver Horseshoe Equestrian Bracelet

$34 on Etsy.com

Simple and classy, I love this bracelet because it’s exactly my style. I’m not big on glitz or large chunky jewelry… plus I’m not that great at matching. Silver goes with everything, and this bracelet is simple enough that it adds just a touch of something extra, without overwhelming the rest of my accessories.

#2 Blue Leather Snaffle Bit Equestrian Bracelet

$40 on Etsy.com

You can’t think of an equestrian-inspired bracelet without thinking snaffle bit. And there a million different variations of this one out there. But this particular version caught my eye because it’s colorful and the clasp is fancy. It almost looks like it could be from a high-end designer like Gucci or Hermes, but it doesn’t have the price tag to go with the brand name!

#3 Classic Leather and Gold Stirrup Equestrian Bracelet

$21.95 on Etsy.com

Looking for something a bit more earthy? This bracelet is perfect and it’s easy on the pocketbook. Every girl needs some gold in her life!

#4 Flat Braided Horse Hair Equestrian Bracelet

$46 on Etsy.com

I’m not a huge fan of horse hair jewelry, but this design caught my eye because it’s different. The braid itself is really pretty and the width really shows off what’s important.

#5 Nameplate Split Leather Equestrian Bracelet

$39.95 on Smartpak.com

Classic and iconic, every equine enthusiast should have at least one nameplate bracelet. I like this one because it’s a big bigger and has more detail than just the nameplate. It would be perfect for when you’re at the barn, or helping out at a horse show.
