In order to ride your best, you have to feel your best in the saddle. ROMFH keeps my seat happy and Strydth keeps me on my feet. This ROOTD we are going into depth on why I love both companies and the gear I am wearing specifically. Get a leg up on comfort with these two brands!
Always Ready in ROMFH
Romfh most recently came out with the Isabella breech, which if you have read Shoulda Showed, you’d know they are my favorite pair of pants ever. However, some dressage riders enjoy the traditional full seat, rather than the silicone grip, especially because it really is a full coverage feel. These breeches help you to feel the ultimate level of security when riding around the ring, ideal for someone looking to lock into a ride. The Isabella breech cut is best suited for women built with a pear shape or hourglass figure, aka curvy (its a shape, not a size) or smaller waist in comparison to her booty and/or thighs . These breeches have a ton of give while also holding it’s original shape extremely well. This makes it ideal for a rider like me. I run a little horse rescue, all under the age of 8 and two are big enough to ride, but both are either rehabbing or too young. That means my muscles fluctuate all of the time. It takes me just about three months of riding four times a week to fill out my breeches really well. I haven’t been consistent for six months now; I am VERY under muscled! But, these breeches don’t look like they are hanging off of me, even though, six months ago I was filling them out nearly to the max. A woman’s body is always changing. Breeches that tolerate all the different ways our bodies look beautiful, is something we all need! Especially, when they make you look like you’re wearing super leggings that hug all the right places. I recommend picking up your pair at Centerline Style for less than $190 since they always have a sale going! P.S. I am currently obsessed with the Burgundy, Dark Navy, and Mist Grey if you want to know what’s on my radar!
Walking in Strydh
After launching a year or two ago, Strydh came out with the shield sock. These epically supportive pieces of genius are my favorites. Literally, I will wash a load of laundry just to wear them. Socks might be the most understated item in an equestrian’s wardrobe, but they end up being the most essential to our happy toes. Luckily, Strydh made the perfect sock for any equestrian. Just the right thickness with extra protection in the toe and heel, plus support around the foot and shin, makes for a perfect combination of comfort. They know how to stay in place and keep just the right amount of compression for blood flow. I am always on my feet when I am down with the horses. Perks of having them at home: hours with them, all day and every day. Strydh keeps my feet fresh and cool while I muck stalls or run around doing liberty work. They can go from muck boots to sneakers in a flash too. There is nothing they won’t do that I can do! Get grey or navy to sport on schooling days and rock black for showing. They are ideal for all riders because they never seem to wear down, making the price point of $18 worth it. Never leave your feet unprotected, get Shield socks via Calabasas Saddlery today!
