0 comments / 0 votes

Do you wear a watch? Ever since having children, I unfortunately have to keep a keen eye on the time every minute of the day. I’m SO in love with my watch which was a gift from my lovely sister. I’ve been admiring the classic and elegant design of The Horse time pieces on friends and strangers for quite […]

Hold onto your hats globetrotters! I’m so, so excited about this particular Fashion Friday recommendation. I’m a huge lover of hats and have a mighty collection that I’ve collected all over the world. My go-to Akubra has recently become too small for my head, go figure right? We’ve shared some wonderful adventures together but it’s […]

Half-chaps are an essential item for any riding holiday if you wish to stay comfortable in the saddle and avoid blisters from pinching stirrup leathers. The benefit of half chaps compared to packing long boots is they are light and easy to travel when you’re travelling internationally. You can zip them off at lunch break and you […]

LITTLE BLACK VEST A stylish, well-designed black (or any other colour that tickles your fancy) vest is my must-have item when packing for a horse riding holiday no matter the destination. For the cooler climate rides the vest is perfect for layering with thermals underneath and a heavier jacket on top. And on the flip side […]

Have you ever ridden in a poncho? When I visit a new country I try to immerse myself in the horse culture choosing to ride in the traditional tack (even if a English saddle is available) and dress in the clothing that is inherent to that region. It makes sense that the horsemen have perfected their […]

The first time I discovered Angus Barrett Saddlery was at the Warwick camp draft where we both had trade stands. His leatherwork is a breath of fresh air in a market that is saturated with poor quality, imported tack. Angus takes great pride in his work to the point of being fastidious. His leather is sourced at […]

In the last couple of years Buster and I have been GoPro-ing our globetrotting adventures to add another dimension than still photography and we love it. When our clients are considering a riding adventure its a a lot easier for them to get a feel for the landscape and horses, when they can view video footage aswell. […]

I’ve had so many comments on my boots of late, I thought that you my dear globetrotters would like to hear about them. A couple of years ago I saw a client wearing these boots in Kenya but it wasn’t until Equitana last November that I found a pair to buy. They are made by […]

Don’t be disheartened if you can’t pronounce this peculiar Spanish word – al-par-gatas – all you need to know is they are THE best travelling and riding shoes you’ll need for your next riding safari or  holiday. Alpargatas are a jute-soled canvas footwear favored by Argentine’s for their comfort, durability and low cost, pretty much […]

It takes any rider awhile to get acquainted to an Argentinean saddle. Simply described they are a series of sheep or goatskins that act as saddlecloths and the saddle seat (which is super comfortable). There is a wooden tree where the stirrups are attached and the girth is made out of rawhide. When I first […]
