The struggle is real, apparently, for male riders looking for quality men’s riding clothes. This week, we brought in an expert to dissect the issue properly. Also, we’ll discuss why barn work doesn’t count as exercise, and why the heck does everyone we know has a “side hustle”? Thanks for tuning in.
More on what we talked about in this episode:

More about our hosts:
Aaron Barber is a 32-year-old amateur event rider from Rochester, N.Y. He owns an off-track Thoroughbred named Thade. Aaron is a vet tech by day, designer by night and occasionally dabbles in modeling. He’s got a bunch of fans in the OTTB Connect Facebook group, thanks to his ever-handsome riding selfies.
Jessica Payne is a 32-year-old international event rider who is rarely seen without her long-haired chihuahua under her arm. She was born in London, Ontario, but grew up in Franklin, Tenn. and graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Animal Science. She once lost the tip of her pinky finger clipping her 4* horse, and husband Doug says she can “talk to anyone including a wall….and they will like it!”
Justine Griffin is an award winning 30-year-old journalist who has written about everything from horses to high profile CEOs to her ovaries. (She donated her eggs once.) Two things she loves the most? Whippet puppies and cheese. Justine is a firm believer in unicorns and feminism. So take everything she says with a grain of salt.
