I met Junior about 5 years ago in England and it was love at first sight. Shortly thereafter he arrived in Texas and we have been traveling the US trying to accomplish our goals ever since. Junior is a wild man under tack but the kindest animal ever in the barn; he knows when it’s “Go Time” and he loves his job. I run my own training business in Dallas, TX, called RB Riding, and have the nicest group of clients who I help on a daily basis. Since I practically live at the barn, I have a lot of equipment I have grown to love but here are a few of my favorite things:
My Cross Country Helmet-
My colors have always been pink and blue. At one point, when I was a teenager and starting to think I was too cool for pink, I tried to change it but my mom wouldn’t let me. She said that it helps her see me and know I’m safe when I’m on course. Now the pink stars are even integrated in my business logo.
My Maui Jim Sunglasses-
I cannot live without these! I have light blue eyes and I’m prone to headaches, which are exacerbated by the customary long days in the sun. I wear the Hana Bay and they are so light; I don’t even notice them.
My Kask Helmet-
It took me a year to convince myself to spend the money on my Kask Starlady Helmet and now I’m kicking myself for now buying it sooner! It makes such a huge difference in the heat and it fits my head better than any Helmet. Plus it’s nice not to look like you just took a shower after one ride!
My Equiline Breeches-
My friend suggested I try these and when I found a pair half off I jumped on it. They are so comfortable, I love the grippy waist so they stay in place, and people keep telling me I look like I’ve lost weight- so obviously they have to make this list! :)
My Deniro Boots-
As a professional, it’s hard to find pretty boots that I can comfortably wear all day AND last longer than a year. These tick all those boxes and more so I keep buying them! Plus the brown boots match my helmet and jacket so it was a no brainer!
