Make your horse ultra-stylish with the Majyk XC Elite Cross Country Front Boots. These are available in an array of color accents. But, in the spirit of this post, the boots with Atomic Orange accents definitely caught my attention.

The Color Elite XC Series Boots boast that they do not inhibit your horse’s movement given the design. The materals include strong yet lightweight materals with a breathable mesh. The molecular composition of the material is such that as your horse is working it is fairly flexible, but it hardens on sudden impact when struck. This maximises the versatility of the boot and its protective factor all at once. As such, it provides proper air circulation, flexibility, and breathability for ease of movement and comfort for your horse. 

The “Forever Clean” feature of the boots help repel water, mud, debris, and dust for easier cleaning. Expect to reduce your clean up time by almost half by simply having to rinse these after use.

So… Apparently Orange is the New Black? Or something

Orange you glad that these fun accessories exist? Bring out some color in your wardrobe with a pop of lively tangerine and be a certified equestrian fashionista.

Sporting an orange ensemble is a complete fashion risk. This is why most people steer clear from it. The key to rocking the tangerine color trend is to not go overboard. While you can opt for pieces with strikingly bold orange hue, you need to tone it down a bit. Choose one eye-catching accessory that will become the highlight. Do not pile on too much detail at the same time. Mixing orange with your basic neutrals is always a great idea.

There’s really nothing to be scared of about wearing orange. The slightest pop of this color will give your wardrobe the necessary update to make it look fresh and lively!
