Years ago, I rode horses. I rode 3-4 times a week for about 5 years. On weekdays, I would get up at 5:30a and was at the stables by 6:30a for an hour ride. I loved riding horses. I eventually stopped (a few months after a bit of a fall, I got off the horse for good…I know…I know…cliche…but it is true…I fell off the horse, got back on for a bit, and then got off for good).
I have lots of little horsey things around my house…I have some fantastic Pierre Frey horse pillows on my bed, a tiny iron horse sculpture on my bookshelf, and countless riding boots, helmets and riding gear stuffed into closets. For some reason, I can’t seem to let go of the horse woman in me!
Love this entryway in an 1870’s coach house in Canada. The dark wood paneled walls, the arched doorway (almost Gothic door frame) and all of the horsey chic accessories and furniture. Love the riding boots and saddle as lovely theme accents! Also, love the firewood in the foyer…creating a visually interesting feature wall while also being extremely functional.
What do you think about equestrian chic? Do you like this entry?
