Urban Equestrian Wear by Dada Sport

I have a new favorite equestrian style brand everyone! I am talking about Dada Sport, I discovered it on Monday and I am totally obsessed.
Dada Sport was founded in 2012 by Caroline and Diane, two riding friends passionate about horse riding and fashion. Their label offers ready-to-wear pieces that marry technical detail with elegance.
"Attention to detail is what defines the Dada design esthetic, for your comfort and above all so you'll want to keep on wearing Dada! 
The most important values in our eyes are quality, technical execution and a sense of style and it is extremely important to us to maintain these in our products."

Venice by Tech Stirrups

Last week, during a study break - oh college... - I was scrolling down through my facebook timeline when I found a post from Rigoleto (find them here) announcing their new product: the Venice stirrups and I immediately knew that I had to share them with you.
These stirrups have a magnetic mechanism positioned on the tread that allows the opening of the stirrup in case of need, making easy the escape of the foot.

The magnet doesn't allow the mobile part to move during the work, it will only open if a certain weight load is exceeded. The stirrups, made from aluminium billet and fitted with stainless blocked screws, are entirely produced in Italy. 

I am 100% sure I will start saving for these because I believe they would be one of my best investments. A couple years ago I fell from my mare and my foot got stuck in the stirrup, it was terrible - getting the Venice stirrups would be great not only for safety reasons but also because I think they would boost my confidence, sometimes those bad experiences from the past really haunt our mind.
Does any of you own these? Share your experiences with me!

Summer Vibes

With this crazy weather nobody would say that Spring is already here! Here in Portugal we have had some sunny days but the rain is back. I had a show planned for the weekend and it was already canceled due to the scary weather forecast - I can't wait to stop having this issues because riding outside is one of the best things in life, am I right?

Since Spring time doesn't get out of my mind, I have selected some pieces that are great choices for the season. Pastels and, in the opposite way, strong colors are the biggest trends.

Polo: Beatriz, Kingsland
T-shirt: Horse Shirt, Spooks
Breeches: Mariel, Equiline

Jacket: Lisa Fleece, Kingsland
Polo: Polly, Euro-star
Breeches: Alice PowerGrip, Euro-star
Vest: Lisa, Spooks

Shirt: Bora Bora, Scarabeus
T-shirt: Cassie, Kingsland
Breeches: Keomi, Kingsland
Jacket: Jessie, Spooks
Soft Jacket: Bolina, Pikeur
What did you think of my suggestions? Have a nice week :)
