Menlo Charity Show with Ariat




The Menlo Charity Horse Show was held at Menlo Circus Club in Atherton, California August 4-9, 2014. This beautiful charity event raised much-needed funds for the Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired. The annual event attracted a large number of sponsors, both corporate and individual, who helped make the event a huge success. One of those corporate sponsors is Bay Area based equestrian clothier Ariat.

Famous for their riding boots and technologically advanced clothing, Ariat generously supported the Menlo Charity Horse Show. Ariat is an equestrian clothing brand worn by both Western and English equestrian athletes They design and make boots and clothing equestrian athletes need to be successful in competition as well as during practice. In fact, Arat’s clothing and boots are so popular, many athletes and non-athletes enjoy wearing Ariat’s technologically advanced riding pants, vest, jackets and riding boots for non-horse riding activities too! 

Ariat was kind enough to invite me to the Menlo Charity Horse Show as their guest this year. It was a beautiful show where I was able to view both the traditional English competition and the jumpers. The Menlo Charity Horse Show included a delicious buffet lunch and vendor row which included an Ariat shopping booth. It was amazing to be able to see Ariat’s collection up close. The boots are exquisite and I can see why so many people enjoy wearing them off the equestrian field too! Not only are they beautiful to look at, Ariat’s boots are made from the highest quality materials and have an insole which makes you feel like you are walking on a cloud. No sore feet for hard-core athletes! Or anyone who chooses to wear the boots for that matter!

In addition to Ariat’s famous boot collection, their vendor booth was filled with apparel which is ideal for both riding and leisurely day-to-day life. The fabric Ariat uses for their apparel collection is extremely technologically advanced and many pieces include SPF protection, wicking capabilities, and are designed for extreme movement and comfort. Ariat’s cool weather pieces are thin enough to be able to ride in yet warm enough to keep an athlete warm on a cold day. 

The Menlo Charity Horse Show was a beautiful event which allowed world-class athletes to compete and win prizes yet contribute to helping raise money for the Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
