E.A. Mattes Fab Freebie Finalists: Who Has the Best Cross Country Style?

Last week we asked you to show us your cross country style for a chance to win a custom ear bonnet and saddle pad set from our friends at E.A. Mattes and World Equestrian Brands, and you delivered! We received nearly 700 entries, and oh to be a fly on the wall when EN’s committee of chinchillas narrowed it down to their top 15. Let’s just say, things got heated!

The winner will receive a Couture Ear Bonnet and Platinum Collection Quilt Only Pad in Jump Eurofit or All-Purpose SquarePhoto courtesy of E.A. Mattes / World Equestrian Brands.

Now it’s time to put the top 15 to a vote! Check out these photos and cast your vote in the poll below. Many thanks to everyone who submitted an entry — we loved seeing ALL your fabulous styles!

Laureen Barnard: “Couldn’t decide and definitely like some variety in life so a set that goes with anything was a must lol. Could swap out hot pink pad and bonnet set for any one of teal, red, royal, orange, green, purple, white or black … if we had them lol.”

Katie Reynolds 父 Wentz: “Blue Stars and because Mum (me) is British, the obligatory Pom on the silk. #powerofthepom!”
