Dressing for Fall

Fall is here! Officially, it’s been here for a while but I don’t consider it fall until it starts feeling that way, i.e. leaves changing, a crisp wind, frost and fuzzy horses. We haven’t quite gotten frost yet but a cold snap has definitely moved in. And Gus is definitely fuzzy! A clip is probably going to be happening soon.

I love fall though. It’s my favorite season anyway and definitely my favorite season for riding. But it means that I have to pull out fall clothes to ride in and you know what I found? I don’t really have any any more! I still have clothes for super cold riding (from growing up in MN and winters in Tahoe) and I have clothes for riding in the rain (hello Seattle!) but nothing that is fitting for now.

Off I went looking for clothes to keep me nice and toasty without spending a lot of money. I love all the Ariat fall choices but horse brands are always just so expensive. So where did I go? Why, Target of course!


Target have the best basics as far as t-shirts go. I picked up a few long sleeved t-shirts in neutral winter colors. And then I saw the sweaters! They were something I hadn’t seen before so I had to pick one up. It was so cute on!


The other place I go for cheap winter clothes, is Costco. It’s not my go to place because you can never count on finding anything specific. But whenever I go I keep my eye out and have found some real gems like these long underwear shirts. wpid-wp-1445197518976.jpg

And even cooler, an orange ombre vest! Score again. wpid-wp-1445197515886.jpg

The only unfortunate thing is that it’s not quite cold enough to wear it yet.

Any favorite places you all like to shop for cheap riding clothes?

  1. That vest is perfect for you! Our trainer scored some nice black mid-weight jackets at Costco and a bunch of us are getting them monogrammed with our barn logo and names. The monogramming is going to be more $$$ than the $20 jacket!
