Scarabeus : Autumn-Winter 2016

You know I am always looking for brands that add something new to our style as riders. Scarabeus is a brand that has been catching my eye for a while as it is the official supplier of the Swiss showjumping national team. Now that I've seen their designs for the present season I had to share some of them here.

I don't know if it's because of the color and the fur or because of how cozy it looks, the Crystal jacket is my favorite from the entire collection, it seems to be the most comfortable thing ever, right? Or am I just feeling cold and lazy right now? be honest I look at the pictures and all the clothes seem to be great because of the soft fabrics and the colors, I would definitely get most of the things if I could!

PS.: You have to see their A/W brochure, the pictures of the horses are delightful!

Salon du Cheval is Always a Good Idea!

Hi everyone! I am so excited because in less than a week I will be in Paris to attend Salon du Cheval and, of course, Longines Masters! I have wanted to go there for years and I am finally going, you can't imagine how thrilled I am right now.

I have been planning my trip for weeks and there are a few things that I don't want to miss:

1. The Pro-Am for Charity presented by Hyatt on Saturday, December 3rd at 9pm

It's one of my favorite classes, I always have so much fun watching it. The costumes are always amazing.

2. Visit the stands at Salon du Cheval

As an equestrian fashion lover I want to see all the news and I seriously hope I don't lose my mind, otherwise I will be the most fashionable rider ever but won't have money to feed my horse haha! :)

3. Meet other Equestrian Bloggers

These are the equestrian youtubers that were present yesterday at Salon du Cheval. Next Saturday there will be more there and I want to meet all of them!

4. Know some French horse breeds

Breed associations and French breeders are present at Salon du Cheval. They let us learn more about their horses and their world - I am very curious to see the presentations.

5. Watch the Longines Grand Prix on Sunday at 2:45PM

Is there a showjumper that doesn't love this Grand Prix? The best riders in the world, an amazing spirit, some great horses - it's the best way to end a trip to Paris!

I will travel with my friend Raquel and we are literally counting every second until our flight to Paris, it's going to be one of the best weekends we have ever had. If you see me there please say hi, I would love to meet you! If you can't go to Salon du Cheval, don't worry - I will be sharing everything on Instagram Stories (my Instagram: @equestriantrendblog)

Equisense Care

The market of connected equipments for horses has been growing a lot in the last few months. French companies are developing great equestrian items that include sensors. Those sensors, combined with mobile apps, allow us to get informations about our horses that we wouldn't get otherwise.

Today I am talking about Equisense Care, a connected bodysuit that shows us our horses' heart and respiratory rates, perspiration, temperature, movement, activity and, last but not least, their sleep.

Equisense has already achieved their goal on Kickstarter but until December 21st you can be a backer and get a discount on the bodysuit.

Book Of The Day

Hey everyone, I hope you are having a great week so far! I haven't had much time to read lately but today I had some free time so it sounded like the perfect opportunity to spend my afternoon reading.

This book - written by Philippe Merrier, a designer who is also a horse lover - packs tips and tricks about grooming, horse care, tack and much more. 

There are so many simple solutions for the problems we face at the barn. I didn't even know most of these things would work! 

I love to discover things that are good for Gali, I'm so excited to try some of these in the future.

6 Things To Get From 20x60

I have heard many riders talking about the brand 20x60 and wearing the famous "I need 3 coffees, 6 horses & like 12 million dollars" t-shirt but, somehow, I only visited their website for the first time last Friday - Carolina you have been missing great stuff haha.

It seems that most people are already looking for Christmas gifts or writing their letters to Santa so I guess it is the perfect time to start posting some suggestions. 

1. Primiera Vienna Halter; 2. "I need" Equestrian Tee; 3. Primiera Savona Bridle; 4. "Horses > Everything" Everything You Need Zipper Bag; 5. Holiday Riding Socks; 6. Horse Girl Coffee Order Tumbler.

These are all from 20x60 and they are available here.
I hope you love these as much as I do! Have a nice week! :)
