It’s nearly Valentine’s Day, Horse Nation. What better way to celebrate the holiday (?) than with some matchy-match sets that will make your heart skip a beat? Knowing that tack and riding apparel are what our readers really want, we’ve got these suggestions for you:
Even if you’re not into Valentine’s Day, it does fall on a Wednesday this year. And after all…
So, these matchy-match sets are all you need to be totally ready for V-Day or just your average Wednesday.
Pink Pop Will Make You Swoon
When you’re going for matching sets, you have to go for the saddle pad first. For this round, the swoon-worthy jumping off point is the SmartPak Classic Medium Diamond AP Saddle Pad in Pink Pop. One of my favorite things about this saddle pad is that it is lightweight and breathable to keep your horse cool and dry. It also has soft quilting and plenty of cushion to keep your horse comfortable..
And because we needed to keep the pink popping, we decided to go with some traditional polo wraps, also in pink pop. Finish off the look with the SmartPak Classic Ear Bonnet and your horse will be all set for Valentine’s Day… or Wednesday.
Leather and Havana Pink
It’s not just schooling tack that needs to coordinate. After all, what would our horse be without a quality leather halter? And for all you pink lovers out there, the SmartPak Soft Padded Leather Halter comes in this stunning Havana and pink combination with a matching lead, of course). I’ve always loved the quality of this padded halter and lead. It’s made with super high quality Amish leather, and the contrasting soft padding on the noseband, cheek pieces, and crown piece prevents rubbing or uncomfortable pressure on sensitive areas (you can check out my full review here).
Coordinating Rider Apparel
To finish off the pink theme of the day, these coordinating items are just…
The first is the Piper SmartCore™ Laser Cut Long Sleeve Sun Shirt by SmartPak. This awesome shirt focuses on comfort, style and protection. It blocks UV rays and features laser cut detailing on the back, underarms, and shoulders for maximum airflow and breathability to keep you cool through long days at the barn. Pair it with the Hadley Curvy Fit Grip Breeches and SmartPak Boot Sock, and you’ll be comfortable and ready to ride. Finish off the look with the C4 Classic Belt, and you and your steed will be set to fully pop in pink.
Happy Valentine’s Day, Horse Nation. Go SmartPak and go riding!
