Like weather apps and Wifi, face masks have established a necessary role in our lives, and we have learned (the hard way) to keep them handy at all times. To encourage the still awkward yet increasingly mandatory mask-donning habit, we’ve found it helpful to stash protective coverings in the many locations we frequent throughout the day—vehicles, trailers, tack rooms, trunks, hand bags, and near the front door.
Other than boot socks, never has an equine fashion accessory multiplied with such force. But boot socks are a bit like lingerie (often left to the imagination), while face masks are front and center and allow for one’s creative expression of style. This prompted us to survey a variety of masks new to the market and pair a few with other items designed with a rider’s closet in mind. The result is a collection of enthusiastic ensembles below, and if you’ve already upped your PPE game, we think they all make great gifts, too!
