I’ve been privy to enough new product launches, tried and tried again new-to-market fashions and understand the great importance of not only riding top but looking top in the process (this means if you have a brown saddle you better be darn sure you’re sporting a brown girth and bridle!) thus I feel compelled to share a happening new range from the folks at SmartPak dubbed Alexus complete with the hip byline aesthetic, athletic, alexus! Schweet!
The Alexus Hybrid Jacket is a nice tailored fit without being too tight and the contrasting black sides are slimming too. The zipper is über quality easy flow up the front as well as zips on each pocket. The pocket zips are great for people like me who are fortunate enough to ride a massive moving horse, hence, without the zips items tend to bounce out.
The Alexus Full Seat Breeches are shopping market and out-in-town ready with nice wide belt loops, a super smooth comfy fit and a full seat that doesn’t need adjusting once you’re in the saddle. Just get on an go, no hiking up of breeches required here! I have the tan with espresso full seat and the contrast is fabulous. My favorite bit is oh so small but oh so cute – the accented stitching on the back belt loop.
A big factor for me when choosing apparel for training is the smartphone-ability. Can my mobile fit in the pocket? The answer is yes. It slides in sideways with ease and anything smaller than an iPhone won’t have an issue either. Most often I need the extra grip provided from the full seats but SmartPak does make a rocking Alexus Knee Patch Breeches as well.
I give a big two hooves up and props to SmartPak for stepping out with their own apparel range! Check them out when you have a chance and please feel free to send me your feedback or post comments here if you’ve tried this range yourself! I’d love to hear your thoughts too!
On the 9th Day of HorseGirlTV my true host gave to me…
A FITS Fleece Bump Shirt!
A huge CONGRATS to our TWO winners Trish Murphey & Shannon Dahmer who tagged HorseGirlTV on Facebook AND posted a comment via the HorseGirlTV Blog page!
This was Trish Murphey’s comment, “My favorite episode is the Wild Horses of Shackleford banks. Episode https://blog.horsegirltv.com/?p=4268. One reason that it is my favorite is because it is an episode filmed on location and is close to where I live. But the best part is the narration of the conflict between the two stallions by Sue, the wildlife biologist. She practically predicts some of the behaviors before they actually happen. It really demonstrates her knowledge of the horses on the banks. Great job!”
Shannon Dahmer tagged HorseGirlTV on this Facebook post saying the Patrolling with the Mounted Police (https://blog.horsegirltv.com/?p=436) was her favorite episode.
