Our Favorite F-Words

She had us at “cell phone pocket,” but if the ability to tuck your phone into your breeches in order to make emergency calls mid-hack or to track your ride doesn’t excite you quite as much as it does us, F.WORDS founder and designer, Kendel Neidermyer, has included several elements of...

Sun Protection for Riders: Friday Giveaway!

Back in April (when we were hopeful that spring was just around the corner), we identified our top picks for equestrian sun protection. We're big fans of sun-kissed skin (and we've got a UV-free tip for that!), but as two farm girls born and raised beneath the pervasive California...

Chambray for the Sidelines – Polo Season is Here!

The commencement of the Northeast’s 2018 polo season recently had us taking inventory of our chukka-worthy gear. And – yes – while we’ve taken some lessons and participated in a polo match or two (spoiler alert: it’s hard!), when we say “gear,” what we mean is...

Help Some Sisters Out: The First Ever OR Reader Survey

Nearly a year ago, Outside Rein was but a twinkle in our eyes (that was sparked by a particularly rigorous riding lesson in which, “More outside rein!” was heard on a steady rotation).

Put Some Spring in Your Step

It's not uncommon to spend upwards of ten hours per day in riding gear when one's life revolves around horses. While we admire those who elect to wear a more polished, street style expression of the equestrian flair, we are more likely...

All Dressed Up With No Place to Go

At OR we spend a lot of time doing dirty work in the stables, but we also have backgrounds in the fashion industry, and generally take pride in what we put on our bodies. That is, until bedtime...

A Bag That Can Do Both

Recently, the OR team arrived at LaGuardia airport to catch a flight for a quick thirty-six hour trip. Although we both carried the same indispensible handbag that accompanies us everywhere, one of us...

A Proper Topper

Like stock ties and saddlebags, brimmed hats transform from farm staple to fashion statement with ease.  Furthermore, no season feels as fitting for a lid made of felt and feathers than the one we are in now.  With this in mind...
