Hello October!

Can you believe it’s already October? I have been digging through my drawers, only to find that my sleeveless Kerrits riding tops are no longer getting the job done now that the days are cooler. Somehow I feel like it was Summer one day and Fall the next. But no complaints here. Equestrian fall shopping is my favorite.

I am beyond excited to revamp my riding apparel with some fabulous and snug essentials! Oh, and did I mention that I’m a Licensed Master Esthetician? Well, my gal pals never fail to turn to me for skincare advice. Sometimes while I am at the barn, I will get a question or two about skin. I love to talk skin so, brace yourselves for a rather unconventional posts: I’ll be sharing monthly riding outfit ideas, along with must-do skincare routines per season! I just can’t help myself- because my skin is in need of some love especially after Summer.

I’ve got some thoughts swirling in this chaotic little brain of mine. Right now, I’m feeling those warm hues, you know the ones – rich browns, deep burgundies, and just a dab of buttery muted yellow to add some zest to the mix. But it’s not just colors that are on my mind. I’m thinking all about a little oil cleanser to melt away my dry skin, and some powerful vitamin C to give me that extra glow. It’s time to shake things up, and embrace the fall!

Western Riding Clothes

Western riding clothing is designed to be functional, comfortable, and stylish. In the world of western horseback riding, jeans, cowboy boots, and hats do the trick. It is relaxed and fun. I couldn’t resist the charm of corduroy pants this October. Their warm, velvety texture beckoned to me to add them to this October line up. Their earthy, rich color along with a splash of the oversized shirt to throw on for a trail ride brought it all home.

Skin Barrier Repair for Active Equestrians

Now that summer is coming to an end, it is important to give our skin the care and attention it needs after months of sun exposure. Skin care is incredibly important, especially considering how much time we spend outdoors. The harsh rays of the summer sun can cause damage to our skin, leaving it dry, dull, and prone to premature aging. To restore its health and radiance, a post-summer skin care routine is crucial.

  1. Biossance Squalane + Antioxidant Cleansing Oil: During the fall season, oil cleansing is one of my favorite additions. The use of oils, such as argan, jojoba, and rosehip, provide much-needed moisture, leaving the skin feeling soft and supple. Furthermore, oil cleansing acts as a protective barrier against the harsh elements, preventing moisture loss and maintaining a healthy complexion. Embracing oil cleansing in fall not only helps to keep our skin healthy and glowing but also adds a luxurious and comforting element to our skincare routines.
  2. The Biossance Squalane + Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum: As the season transitions, our skin tends to become dull, dry, and damaged from the harsh summer sun. This serum, enriched with exfoliating AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), effectively helps to soften and smooth the skin’s texture, diminish fine lines, and brighten the overall complexion. Its gentle yet powerful formula works overnight to remove dead skin cells, revealing a fresher and more radiant appearance. Additionally, the serum contains squalane, a plant-derived moisturizer, which ensures that the skin remains nourished and hydrated during the dryer fall months.
  3. The Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Firm Eye Cream. Enriched with antioxidant vitamins, it helps to protect the delicate skin around the eyes from environmental damage and free radicals. Additionally, its anti-aging properties help firm and tighten the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
  4. Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 – Environmental Shield SPF Facial Moisturizer Cream is a fantastic product to include in your skincare routine during the fall season. Enriched with a powerful combination of vitamins and antioxidants, it provides unparalleled hydration and shields the skin from harmful UV rays, preventing sun damage and premature aging. Its lightweight texture is perfect for fall, ensuring all-day comfort without heaviness or greasiness.


October brings about a truly magical time for equestrians. As we embrace the changing colors of the autumn leaves and relish in the crisp, cool air, our riding outfits become a testament to our love for this exhilarating sport. We fashionistas of the equestrian world are not just riders, but trendsetters. So let us saddle up and embark on thrilling adventures this October, while looking effortlessly fabulous along the way.
