How to: Keep Cool in the Summer Heat

Summer rides can be hot and sweaty, but they don't have to be a hot mess. Keep an eye out for more articles on surviving the summer!

  • Water Bottle from ShopSouthMagnolia
    Not only is a water bottle necessary for the hot months, this bottle is so cute (it's monogramed and sparkly!).
  • The Tailored Sportsman IceFil Shirt
    Sun shirts are great for summer. The long sleeves are used to protect from UV light and are heavily ventilated to help keep rider's cool.

  • Kerrits Flow Rise Performance
    These are my favorite breeches for the warmer months. They're lightweight, easy to move in, and come in cute colors (search around, they exist)!
  • EcoGold Secure XC Saddle Pad

Stay cool, smile, and have fun!
