Unexpected Find

I bought these sweet riding pants at my sister's favorite english riding store, Horse Crazy, in SLC. After waiting forever for her to try on riding boots I wandered upstairs and stumbled upon an entire room filled with vintage riding pants, jackets, and boots! My experience instantly went from bored to frenzied. After doing a quick sift through the racks I found two amazing pairs of pants, one being this pair of green corduroy pants with leather detail. I have developed a bit of an obsession with riding pants as of late so couldn't be happier! I'm planning on making another trip down soon to spend more time checking out the boots and jackets. It just goes to show that if you keep an open mind you can find amazing pieces in the least expected place.
