Heels Down Happy Hour Podcast 68: The Quarantine Episode

To pull shoes or not to pull shoes? That is the question. Like everyone else, we’re trying to stay sane while stuck in quarantine. This week, we’re talking about our favorite tips and wardrobe picks for the sunny and warm spring season and how to battle allergies.  Thanks for tuning in.

Special Guest:

Jackie Eckert is the founder of “Equi In Style” or EIS, the tech-fabric equestrian clothing line. Jackie founded EIS in 2009 after discovering a line of fabric used to make golf shirts that she thought would be perfect in the riding arena. When Jackie isn’t in the office, she’s at the stable with her horses or testing out new product designs. She never puts any item in the shop that she hasn’t tested out herself.

More about our hosts:

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!”

Ellie Woznica is a 22-year-old freelance book designer and horse trainer because she couldn’t choose which career to pursue and her mom said she wouldn’t make the decision for her. She grew up showing the hunters and jumpers, but in university, she learned to ride western and fell in love with reining. 

Justine Griffin is an award winning 32-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.
