If your BFF wears a saddle, head north to Westchester’s horse country, where you’ll find our favorite equestrian boutiques. Browse The Horse Connection, an equestrian-lifestyle-and-tack shop in Bedford, and Beval Saddlery, a high-end saddlery shop in North Salem that also offers cheeky gifts, including equestrian-themed barware.
Then, hit RIDE, Bedford’s newest equestrian boutique that’s brimming with the latest in fashion and functional items for horse and rider. You’ll find bridles with bling, splurge items like Butet saddles, and everything in-between. “This season, we are very excited about the new rider collections from For Horses and Samshield — just in time to get outfitted for the winter circuits,” says RIDE owner Courtney Caverzasi.
