Welcome to our new series which will feature fashion must have items for riders and their horses. Tune in every Friday with your (or your parents’ or your significant other’s) credit card in hand,  for some excellent fashion finds. Lets bring style to the Eventing world! 

I have not personally tested all of the featured products but the websites they are available through are reputable and I will not feature any products with negative reviews. If you own any of these products please share your to opinions so we can all find the best deals and look great.


Quit committing the fashion crime of wearing an old and plain pinney on cross-country. This is the phase when your inner fashionista should really get to shine through. You have the freedom to wear splashes of colour so take advantage of this. An attractive looking pinney, customized in your cross-country colours is the perfect way to complete your look.

Valentine Equine Custom Cross-Country Bib: You can design your pinney and Valentine Equine will create it for you for the affordable price of $60 to $100 (depending on how fancy you want your pinney to be). Pick from a solid coloured pinney, one with two colours or a custom dyed pinney. And you can even give your pinney an extra punch with some bling by adding several rows of diamantes! This pinney is not just a fashion statement; it also has elastic sides for safety in conjunction with air vests, crossed back straps to prevent annoying shoulder slips and the size is adjustable with a side buckle.
