How To Wash Your Ogilvy Memory Foam Half Pad

People ask me a lot how do I wash my Ogilvy half pad so I have (finally!) decided to write a "how-to" post. It is really easy to wash, I don't even use the washing machine but let me show you how I do it:

1. Remove the memory foam inserts: You only need to wash the cover of the half pad. Open the velcro and take the inserts out.

2. Use a stain remover: Only if necessary, of course! Make sure you use a stain remover that is safe on colors and let it sit for about 5 minutes.

3. Fill a basin with warm water and add an appropriate amount of hand-wash detergent. Make sure it is thoroughly dissolved.

4. Add the cover to the water. Rub the fabric gently against itself and agitate in the water. Pay attention to any stained or marked areas.

5. Rinse the cover in fresh water to get rid of any traces of detergent.

6. Instead of using the dryer, let it air dry.

I will show you the final result later, my half pad is drying at this moment. :) Have a nice week!

The Class Of HV Polo

Sometimes brands surprise us in a positive way and they surprise us a lot. That happened to me with HV Polo.
I don't own anything from the brand because until now I wasn't their perfect customer but something has changed. I have been following their Instagram account for a while and it was awesome when I started seeing their photos of this Winter's collection. Their style has changed. It is better than ever.
Today I decided to check their catalog, wow! Preppy clothes to wear all the time, at the barn or not. I think I will start my Christmas wish list right now!

The Most Recent Equestrian Trend

There is a new trend for us equestrians. I am talking about ponchos, yes, ponchos! At first I didn't understood how that would work for riders but then I started thinking that ponchos are, in fact, a great addiction to a rider's wardrobe. You won't wear them while you are riding, at least, I wouldn't but they seem awesome to wear with your riding clothes when you aren't riding. It's a stylish, comfortable and practical piece.
Some brands have included ponchos in their Fall/Winter collections:
