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.

Okey so maybe taupe is not the Prêt-à-Porter Fashion Week color of choice this year but after a little research, I think taupe could be the new black! This is at least where we’re talking about Taupe FITS Wind Pro Breech and Wind Pro Stud Jacket are concerned. My new winter wear arrived this week and just in time for a drop in temps AND with the standard winter riding garments as black and dull as most winter backgrounds it was an uplifting sight.
We should first establish why taupe is kewl… It’s subtle and chic and matches heaps of other colors.
What goes with taupe?..
Okey so black is so kewl because it also goes with everything. It’s stark and you’ll stand out. It’s figure flattering especially if you pair it with black up top and taupe down below. I don’t know how, but I don’t have a solid black riding shirt to speak of in short or long sleeves so this one was out for me with my new fab set.
White is kewl because it keeps you cool yet in the winter on the eastern shores on NC that’s not a huge issue. While I’m totally looking forward to donning my FITS White Seersucker (hopefully in the competition sandbox as well) down in Florida this winter it’s not my top pick for training this time of year when mud seems to mulitply no matter how clean you keep things.
Ding! Lightbulb! Reaching beyond my new outfit I can pair this most awesome FITS Stud jacket in taupe with my FITS Laura Denim Breeches AND what a fabulous combo to wear into town for lunch, the market then back home in time to feed all the while a stylish little diva! Go one step further, and no I don’t have one, but a denim shirt with this combo would be completely rocking!
So we’ve established taupe is neurtal and anything goes with it but why not, especially if it’s your winter wear, add a bright color OR TWO to the combo? This comes to my long, draw out and mostly frivilous decision that I narrowed down to a bright turqoise or a bright hot pink to wear with my new FITS Wind Pro breeches and the matching Stud jacket for today’s training. It was hot pink today so tomorrow’s training will be the bright turquoise.
Yes, this isn’t my normal fare and I’m not sure why I got so incredibly excited when the Wind Pro Stud jacket arrived last night but I am a girl and doesn’t that entitle me to focus on fashion, colors and what I’m going to train in ever-so-often? I will pass along tho that the time I spent thinking about what direction I would take my Friday training and reflecting on this past week’s training achievements did FAR out weigh the fashion conundrum so my head is in the right place. 🙂

And a drum roll please… HorseGirlTV’s pick for the best winter breeches are the FITS Wind Pro full seats! Everyone at HorseGirlTV is a big fan of the folks at FITS, the amazing products they create and the Wind Pro breeches are no exception.
HorseGirlTV’s host, Angelea , had this to say about her transition to winter riding, “I pull out the jackets, ear wraps, scarfs and my Wind Pro full seats from FITS. The Eastern North Carolina winters are cold, wet and with my farm so close to the coast that’s combined with a very chilly wind but I stay toasty working in our outdoor in all sorts of conditions thanks the folks at FITS and their brilliant Wind Pro full seats.”
Wind Pro fabric provides cozy warmth without excess weight. It is wind and water resistant yet still breathable. The FITS Winter Wind Pro breeches have FITS patented PerforMAX full seat technology to give you the most comfort and best performance ever offered in a full seat breech.
