May Letter from the Editor: Derby Daydreamer

8 months ago Editor's Note0

Decades have come and gone, and I still bear this jolting rush associated with what’s known as the “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.”

The Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs has and will always remain a thrilling family pastime to witness on the tube. As we enter derby season during May, I’m dedicating the month to equestrian-themed apparel but with a Cowgirl Candace twist.

As I often like to do, I’m experimenting with contemporary clothes that take racetrack and dressage fashion to new Southern heights as if I’m in the fashion fray of spectating the event to racing among the competition’s best.

Note to my mavericks: For some of you, this fashion may feel fresh; others, it’s unfamiliar. Nevertheless, we’re going to explore this genre of the riding world together with my modern interpretations.

— Ride on!
