#ROOTD: Riding Gali Again
Hey, everyone! Yesterday was a very special day as I got to ride Gali again for the first time after his surgery! I was super excited but it ended up being much more emotional than what I had anticipated. Our first steps together made me feel incredibly grateful for having the chance to ride him again and I saw my dedication to horses really paying off.
Although we did nothing else besides walking, he behaved like a brave man and I honestly think he enjoyed being ridden again!
However, this blog post is about the #ROOTD I chose to wear yesterday. I knew there would be a lot of photos and videos so I wanted it to have a meaning, that’s why I decided to wear clothes from the only Portuguese equestrian brand I know. Equifield wasn’t launched too long ago but they are already conquering the equestrian world – like I will do with Gali!
Although the days are getting warmer, mornings are still cold so wearing a jacket is a must. Equifield’s soft-shell jacket has some features that are worth mentioning. It isn’t bulky, it cuts the wind and its polar fleece on the inside make it a great option. I like that it is fitted (my fave type of jacket) but still leaves enough room for layering – I’m the queen of layering because I’m always cold.
It has a record amount of pockets, including a huge hidden pocket on the inside – I think I could fit my horse’s passport there!!! This works amazing for me because I usually leave my bag as soon as I arrive to the barn and I carry everything from my phone to riding gloves in my pockets.
Then we get to the best part: we can adapt it to our personal taste. Riders can make it more or less fitted and tighter or looser around the wrist.
This is also the first jacket I own from an equestrian brand that has a hood, thank goodness!!! I never remind how important hoods are until it starts raining and my hair gets soaking wet!
The jacket’s price point is incredibly fair, I don’t think I could get a similar jacket for the same price and they have a great color range available.
Before moving on to the next item, I want to finish by saying that I love their logo, it’s so classy and delicate.
The socks are also from Equifield. They came in the prettiest – and sustainable – packaging and they are sold in packs of 3.
Equifield made a nice job regarding the fabric as it is thin but not so thin that you can see the breeches under them. It looks like they will hold up for a good amount of time! I love that the navy and black combination matches the jacket and, surprise, one size fits everyone! Great, right?!
|The sun was killing my eyes here, sorry for the extra weird face 😂|
As for the rest of the outfit, the base layer is from Horsegloss, the belt is from Horse A Porter and the breeches are from RJ Classics.
See you on the next post!
