Here’s a silent home movie taken at John and Jackie’s Wexford home outside of Middleburg, Virginia. Designed by Jackie and built on 39 acres of hunt country, it was meant to be a family retreat. The weekend of November 10th is reportedly the last weekend the entire family would spend time there together.

Most equestrians monogram everything. Not just because it looks great and it’s traditional, but it also really, actually helps us keep track of what equipment belongs to who. The most popular monograms I see around the barn are the three initial open diamond and three initial closed circle. I’m a big fan of both, especially the closed circle. However, I’m always looking for ones that are unique.
I came across this one from Gramercy Fine Linens & Furnishings. Their three initial quatrefoil is stunning and I want it on all of my saddle pads, blankets and equipment covers.I wonder if they’d be willing to accommodate such a request…
My boy, Will, is a lovely rose grey at the moment, he really just glows. He’s also that perfect grey/brown that hides just about all dirt. I have this feeling that, as the weather quickly grows cold, he’ll grow grey.
Thankfully this wonderful, green company by the name of EcoLicious Equestrian is offering a fantastic solution. I’m dying to try the waterless version of their Squeaky Green & Clean Shampoo. They have a plethora of other products as well so be sure to thoroughly browse their website.
Because there aren’t a lot of vedors in my area, I’ll have to order through their website but at only $27.95 a bottle, I’m thinking it’s well worth it. You can check availability in your area here.
Inspired by Miroslava Duma’s monochromatic look above, I’ve decided that I need a leather circle skirt. I love this knee-length version from Kelly Bergin. It’s perfect for transitional weather and can be worn throughout winter! A lot of people must share my thought - it’s completely sold out! Let the search begin…
