Spring showers bring May flowers… and loads of mud and muck. Like you, we too are anxious to get out and enjoy the warmer temperatures and longer days, but with the unpredictable weather, having the appropriate gear to keep you clean and dry is paramount to enjoy your time at the barn.
Let’s start with our feet. I can think of few things that can send a good day into a downward spiral quicker than gross wet feet (well, let’s be honest, we have horses so there are a lot of ways that can happen, but wet feet is somewhere on the ‘annoying’ list).
Around the barn, Ovation gives you several footwear options to keep your feet dry, depending on your activity. For the light duty days, the Mudster Barn Shoe are perfect. They are easy to sleep on and off, giving you the most convenient option to have on before you change into your riding boots. Some days the muck level slips off your slip-on shoe a little too easily. Stepping into the Mudster Mid Calf Barn Boot will insure that you don’t step out of your footwear. And they are still flexible enough for easy on/off.
If you are looking for working/riding versatility, start with the Slip On MuckMaster. These will fit perfectly under your half chaps or jeans, but are waterproof and feature an anti-slip sole for ultimate protection, in and out of the saddle.
For the extra mucky days that you still have to ride, and maybe make a grocery store run, the Moorland II Highrider Boot is both stylish and protective. Grippy suede upper makes you secure in the saddle, even on the most spicy spring horse, while a non-slip sole and waterproof foot keep you upright and dry.

And finally we have your show footwear needs covered – because the show must go on. With the Mudster Shoe & Boot Saver, it’s easy to slip on protection against water and harsh conditions, and keep your tall boots looking show-ready.

Moving away from the footwear, Ovation gives us the ultimate breech to leave us feeling spring-time fresh. Repelling environmental elements, while also being odor resistant with a flattering fit makes the Bellissima an easy choice in and out of the show ring. Plus it comes in kids and full seat options.
Not to be forgotten is the ever important rain jacket. For around the barn, the Ayleen offers lightweight, breathable protection from the elements, in fresh spring colors. And to keep those show clothes clean and crisp, the Show Storm Rain Jacket offers classic coverage, including space in the hood for your helmet!
