Rikki found this fabulous double bridle from KL Select that she'd love to find wrapped up for her this year. The Pirouette bridle from KL Select is deigned with soft supple leather in classic rich black. The Pirouette features a mono crown design with a crank noseband and interchangeable brow bands. Feeling spicy? Bring on the bling, got lesson or clinic coming up and need to tone it down? Switch to the classic padded raised brow band that compliments the noseband beautifully.

Bailey had a hard time choosing this year, we couldn't choose for her because both her picks were top notch! Her first pick is a set of the Barbour Women's Ellery pajamas in classic Barbour plaid. She loves how soft and comfy they are, and has visions of dancing sugar plums while she cuddles up bed time. Judging by her picture, Bailey and Dylan's pup Charlotte are clearly fans of all things Barbour!

Helmets are super popular this year and it should serve as no surprise that Bailey from our TIEC location also has her heart set on a special helmet too! Her top pick is the Kask Star Lady Farm House Tack Custom Crystal helmet. Bailey can't decide between these two helmets and it's no wonder, they are both crusted in dazzling crystals that dance on fire when hit by the light.

Surely everyone knows Bobbye by now? Bobbye works in fulfillment is such a natural in front of the camera we frequently borrow her for modeling duties. Her favorite piece this fall is hands down the Kerrits Good Gallop Vest, paired with her second favorite piece the R.J. Classics Maddie Show Shirt in Caviar. She loves how roomy the vest is, perfect for layering on cooler days. The stretch panels keep the vest from restricting her range of motion while working around the barn.  The embroidered galloping horse accenting the back yoke of the vest complete the piece along with functional pockets.

My turn! My favorite piece by far this season is the Cavallo Ella jacket in Red Wine. This jacket has all the bells and whistles for me to wear around the barn and elsewhere.  First off POCKETS -- not silly show pockets but fully functional pockets. It also has a pocket at the left chest to tuck air-pods, keys, sunglasses (treats?) etc. Oh, whats this on the interior? ANOTHER POCKET which fits my phone perfectly! Yup, I'm in love with this coat! 

I'm sure some of you would like to know the other features. 
This jacket also has cuffed sleeves to help keep out the elements and keep my hands warm. A two way zipper so the jacket doesn't bunch off when you're in saddle, the smooth front and back keep the coat from picking up barn debris like shavings and hay and the logo work on the exterior gives the jacket a sporty look. 

I love that their pieces always have a small crystal accent somewhere and this piece is no exception. You'll find one crystal at the zipper pulls on the front of the coat as well as the exterior pockets. 

That wraps up this years staff picks.
