She Rides I Pay, The Store…. April 03 2014, 0 Comments
Hello friends. I am happy to report that the Howell family is alive and well. I have received many complaints for my long absence from this space. Well, I’m baaack–and with exciting news to share. About six months ago, I opened a mobile equestrian-inspired gift store filled with horse show necessities and luxuries. I’ve traveled to a variety of shows with our 16-foot-trailer/store. We spent six weeks in Manchester, Vermont, at the Vermont Summer Festival horse show. I’ve attended several one-day shows on the Vermont Hunter Jumper Association (VHJA) circuit, had a great week at the New England Equitation Championship in Springfield, MA, and went to the four-day extravaganza that is the Equine Affaire, also held in Springfield. I have just returned from four weeks at HITS Ocala and was quite dismayed to find winter had no yet left Vermont upon my return!
My product mix includes items that are useful, such as the amazing EIS cool fil shirts, and fun–how many iPhone cases should a Lilly girl have? As many as she wants!
I’m carrying Arista Equitation vests and jackets, which are beautifully designed and cut for riders. I’m proud to offer the Ece Equestrian line–the designers of these elegant shirts hit the fast-forward button–their technical fabric offers strong sweat-wicking properties and takes a beating in the barn. These shirts come out of the washing machine looking just as fabulous as when they came out of the original packaging. And they are handmade. In the garment district, in New York City. Yes, that’s cool.
This weekend I’ll be at Steeple Ridge Farm in Charlotte, Vermont, for a VHJA clinic. I’m looking forward to seeing all of the horse people. After the terrible winter we’ve all had, a bit socializing will be good for us!

On April 13th, I’ll be at EvenStride in Byfield, MA. I’m still adding dates for April and May so please let me know if your barn or organization is hosting a horse show or clinic.
