… Laura DeAngelo! Out of 10 finalists, Laura’s photo received a whopping 937 votes to win last week’s “Fab Freebie” giveaway for a pair of uvex sportstyle 802 small vario sunglasses in black and uvex ceravent gloves. As reader Gail commented, “Laura D. has the ultimate equestrian tan!! The legs never see the light of day if you are truly riding!!”

Indeed, Laura admits that pretty much lives in her breeches. Laura, who has been riding for 28 years and eventing for eight, started training horses full-time in January 2018. She now runs Skye High Equestrian in Bridgewater, Virginia.

“It was a leap of faith to go full time and run my own business and I have been blessed with wonderful horses and clients!,” she says. “I’ve started many under saddle as well as retraining and confidence building and business is strong. Hence the tan from being out there all day everyday!”
