Ask nearly anyone in the equestrian community and they would of heard of Ariat.  Ariat’s glowing reputation has been built upon years of delivering quality equestrian products.

This electric blue down gilet (pictured below) did a great job in keeping me toasty when exposed to windy winter days in Cornwall.  That, combined with the long black sleeve top, ensured that I was super snug.

Ariat Challenge Contour Long Boots

These boots.

I found it really hard to photograph and capture how nice these boots are in the flesh. The leather is so soft and I couldn’t be more pleased with them. I love the colour also.  Instead of your usual Havana Brown, this colour is called Cognac, which is more red in appearance. These are both a great training and competition boot.

In such a strong boot market, I think Ariat have done very well to produce a boot that is not only functional and practical, but also elegant at the same time.

Further details can be found here.

RRP: £329.99
