MUDS Boots

These boots ARE THE BOMB! I live in my MUDS and find them supportive and comfortable under all weather conditions. MUDS come in three heights (high, mid-calf, and 6”) to fit the needs for all sorts of activities. I’ve been through every type of muck boot imaginable and by far, the MUDS take the cake! Here are the 3 reasons I keep coming back to the MUDS

They Stay Cool

Neoprene and 3D mesh lining wick moisture away from your calf and help to keep your feet cool

Sneaker Style Fit

These boots are designed with a dual compound performance polyurethane insole as well as an Ortholite foam top. This means that the boots are light weight and form fitting, wear like sneakers, and resist bacteria. I wear my MUDS 50 hours a week and it’s like I am wearing Nike shoes.

Long Lasting

The MUDS industrial grade rubber and uniform outer shell keep the boots crack free and long lasting. Once again- 60 hours a week and I’ve had my boots for over a year now!

Cheval Rain Jacket

When I am looking for functional, stylish, and comfortable rain gear, I go straight for my Cheval Rain Jacket!

Functional

These jackets are built to ride in. Their light weight design and unique shape really allow riders to be mobile in the saddle while staying covered from the weather. The sealed seams make the jacket durable and long lasting.

Comfortable

100% water proof and breathable, these jackets have kept me dry even on the longest of past Rolex cross country days! I really appreciate the back vents, which keep the jacket breathing and keeps me from being ‘sticky kinda dry’.

Stylish

Long armed, fitted, and with an adjustable waist, the Cheval Rain Jacket deems stylish from the barn to the rest of society. I can even pack the hood in a zippered pocket to keep it out of sight. The jacket also has pockets big enough for phones, snacks, KY3DE programs, the essentials!

Balance Riding Tights

I have not schooled in any other breech in two years. The Balance Riding Tights’ style, functionality, and longevity keep me confident and comfortable in and out of the tack.

They May as Well be Athletic Leggings

Balance Riding Tights are designed with 76% Supplex Nylon & 24% Spandex Jersey, meaning that they feel and look like athletic leggings but will not wear, tear, or fade. These tights are breathable, light weight, and machine washable.

All of the Gadgets

My favorite feature is the cell phone pocket. It holds the new style smart phones easily and keeps them stable against my leg. The second belt loop on the left hip keeps any extra belt still against my hip.

Style

The flat seam design, booty boosting technology, and reflective logo design keep me looking sleek in these tights. I really love the light weight, high waisted stretch hem that keeps my core tight in and out of the saddle.

Perfect Fit Boot Socks

If you have not tried these socks yet, you are missing out!

The Perfect Fit Boot Socks are breathable, supportive, and durable. The venting panel on the calf portion of the sock keeps calves cool all summer long! With mild compression at the foot, these socks help to prevent tired feet even after a long day. My favorite feature is the padded heels and toes that help the socks to hold up to those who use and abuse them.

 

 

 

 

About Madison Maavere

Hello, I am a young professional in the equine industry with a passion for improving horses' physical health and emotional wellness. I grew up riding horses in north Georgia and by the time I was 10, I decided I wanted to ride professionally. This dream grew into the mountain that I climbed every day, striving to reach the top. Until I was 16, I did not have my own horses, so I began diving whole-heartedly into any barn that would allow me to work off rides, training, and showing. While this path may not have gotten me the most blues in the show ring, it opened my eyes and my heart to the vastness of the horse world and how perception based it can be. When I was 16, my family moved out on 6 acres so I could have my horses at home (IE, so my family could see me on a daily basis), and for this, I am truly grateful. Running my own farm, albeit small, was liberating and humbling, and it revealed to me that my passion was not so much for riding sport, but for the love of the horse. Fast forward 6 years, and I am well into my final year as an undergraduate Equine Science/Management major at the University of Kentucky. I have been so fortunate in the opportunities I've received here and the relationships I've been able to build. The cutting edge research, quality horsemanship, and innovative businesses located around Lexington, KY have given me a strong sense of reality, and inspired me to really look at where I can make an impact in today's horse world. What I've realized is that while I like equestrian sports, I love the horse. Moreover, I love to help the horse. I want it to be happy and relaxed, to be sound and comfortable, to eat well and be healthy. I want the horse to have every defense against pathalogical disease, and I want it to have skill sets that people value so it can live a long, loved life. In this love, I feel called to advocate for the horse. I want to learn everything I can about how to improve horses' sustainable wellness, and I want to share what I learn so that horsemen of all experience, backgrounds, and goals can feel inspired and enabled to improve their horses' lives. It is my true desire to initiate and spread a dynamic in which horses are not for the industry, but the industry is for the horses.
