Horse Lifestyle

Horse Lifestyle, an online streaming service for horse enthusiasts, will go live worldwide this November. Members of the website will be able to watch films, series, read books and magazines centered around horses and the equestrian sport. It is going to be available on computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones that are connected to the internet and it will have a cost of $12.95 a month.

In order to celebrate the global launch, Horse Lifestyle is giving away a free month subscription to the first 10.000 members! If you are interested, sign up here.

This is such a great idea, Horse Lifestyle is going to be the Netflix of equestrians! I will sign up right now, have a nice weekend! :)

Riding In The City: Public Transports

When I moved to Oporto, I also moved to a new barn. It is located in the heart of the city so I have to catch the bus everytime I want to go there.
The first time I wore riding clothes on the bus I felt that everybody was starring at me and that was really awkward but now I am getting used to it and I don't mind anymore!
I don't have my own tack room yet, that means I have to take my boots and helmet with me everytime. Besides my boot bag, I also have to take my purse so it gets really uncomfortable to take all these things with me.
I've been thinking in ways to make my life easier. I want to get a backpack where I can take my helmet, my wallet or some clothes, if necessary. I already have one from Noble Outfitters that is great for shows but it is too big to take on the bus - I need something more practical. Maybe I will sell it and then I will get a smaller one, probably the Ardley backpack from Kingsland.

Another thing I would love to get is a new boot bag, mine is also way, way, way bigger than what I need. There are many boot bags available but I will choose one that is great in terms of quality/price. I like this one from Equi-Thème:

I can't to much about the riding clothes but I love wearing them! Do you have any tips on this subject? I would love to know what is your opinion!

Gallop Guru is a brand new equine-inspired gift and homeware online store. There you will find everything from cushions to candles and jugs to jewellery, featuring designs that are inspired by horses. 
They have a large variety of products that are perfect Christmas presents and because they are an European company - based in the UK-, I will certainly get some things from them!

Kingsland Collection Update (Or An Easy Way To Spend All Your Money!)

Can someone, please, explain me why do I still go Kingsland's website when they launch new collections? I can't resist to some of the new items from the Fall/Winter 2016 collection update...What a surprise, right??

This pattern and colors remind me of Christmas, which I love, so you can tell how much these have touched my heart!
I know it's still October but maybe, just maybe, I will start my X-Mas wish list right now!

Bre Avery Equestrian Lifestyle Design

Bre Avery, an equestrian lifestyle design company that just launched a line of American made home products, is one of the latest equestrian companies that I have found. The brand was founded by Bre, a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology that has worked for Victoria's Secret, Henri Bendel and Pessoa.
This line of home products is totally my style. There isn't any product on their website that I don't like, no joke! You know I love the preppy style!

Have a nice Wednesday!
