I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t horse crazy. I lived for my weekly riding lessons from the time I was four or five, but it wasn’t enough. I pestered my parents for years for a horse, and thinking I’d never follow through they made a deal with me when I turned nine: if I took care of the animals we had, fed them and groomed them and made their vet appointments for the next year, they’d get me a horse for my tenth birthday. They underestimated my passion and determination. 🙂 We got one horse, then my dad started riding and found that he loved it. One horse became two, and for a few years, I was in horse heaven until my parents divorced and I had to sell mine. My dad continued to keep horses though, so I was able to ride whenever I visited him. I still miss being around horses, and hope that someday I can make that a regular part of my life again. There’s nothing like a pair of riding boots to make me nostalgic…however I can’t wear an equestrian look head-to-toe, it feels too literal and costume-y. I like to mix it up a bit.
It’s officially Boot Season here in the Northern Hemisphere, and whether you’ve been searching for a pair of classic riding boots or au courant ankle boots, there are plenty of options still on sale at Nordstrom….
