Rhapsody in Blue

Courtney Westmoreland Rider

 

Ariat's Trophy Stretch Panel Show Coat in brown and taupe plaid and pale blue Essex Show Shirt from the Horse and Hound in Gainesville, GA make a bold move from the show ring to high fashion when paired with a striking pair of custom boots by DeNiro Boot Company. At Style My Ride we go way outside the box, so we asked DeNiro Boot Company to make us a boot like no other - a spectator boot in robin's egg blue with black hunt top, toe, and heel caps, and swagger tabs in the same stunning blue. Chocolate and blue plaid breeches by Arista, also available from the Horse and Hound, create a seamless look from head to toe.

 

A summer afternoon strolling the grounds of a vast country estate harkens echos of Lady Mary Crawley of Downton Abbey, in her foxhunting habit and top hat, secured with black netting. In homage to that imagery, we found a matching pale blue netting to secure Courtney's elegant top hat. Then we added a stunning champagne stock tie with canary crystal ring from Equistyle of Australia. Courtney carries the "Crawford," a navy blue leather crop with brass scrolled and engraved globe cap from the Genevea collection at Australia's Elite Canes and Browbands .  

 

Featured with this outfit is the SunaharA Stone Wrap Ring, Turquoise Wrap Mid-Knuckle Ring, Thick Plain Mid-Knuckle Ring, and several variants of the Ornate bangle.

Paying respects to Godfrey Barnesly
Paying respects to Godfrey Barnesly

The stunning location of our shoot , Barnesly Gardens, was built in the 1840's by English Shipping Magnate Godfrey Barnesly for his beloved wife Julia. We felt it only appropriate to pay our respects to him and thank him for the beautiful legacy he left behind. You can read more about the Estate and the stunning resort it is today below.
