Me during my riding lesson in summer 2016
I’m always interested to see what other people are wearing during their riding lessons and what items they have with them. For example I like to think through which pants I want to wear with what shirt or jacket. When I was younger I never really thought about I should look nice while I’m in stables , I just put on my very random clothes and went to my lesson (it didn’t matter whether my sweatshirt was good looking or not, it just had to be comfortable). Now I like think through my riding lesson outfits and think about every little detail.
All the colors need to look good together and my clothes need to be clean and nice. When I wear blue breeches I like to pair them with blue knee-highs and blue gloves. Or when I wear my pink breeches, I don’t wear pink t-shirt with it (it’s too much). I think my most worn cloth is a vest – especially during the cold winter, spring and autumn. Vest is more comfortable than a warm jacket because I can move my hands more. I always have my iPhone with me (to make some pictures and videos before or after my riding lesson – Snapchat and Instagram!) and sometimes I leave on my watch. I never take off my earrings and rings while riding. My nails are pretty much always painted (usually in pink or grey) and on my lips I use a lip balm or a lip gloss. When it’s sunnier, I wear my sunglasses. And a water bottle is a must!
