Seven hours of dressage spectating might, in fact, require a flask. A little nip of something will make Sally O’Connor’s comments even more enjoyable (“oh dear-dear-dear!”), especially if you’re sipping from a Dubarry Rugby Leather Hip Flask.
Manhattan-eventer, today’s featured poster entered to win a pair of Dubarry Roscommon and Kerry Boots, created an ensemble that includes this key piece of equipment, along with sunscreen and an umbrella, two other wise choices for a day that may include gusty winds, soaking squalls and sunshine – all before lunch.
She also picked a spacious Dubarry Durrow Weekend Bag, with plenty of room for the EN schwag she scores at our tailgate and treasures she picks up in the trade fair. Manhattan-eventer anchored her outfit with the classic Dubarry Galway Boots, which will keep her feet warm, dry and comfy as she climbs the stadium stairs or hoofs it across the cross-country course.
Best of all (besides the adorable canine sidekick in the Ralph Lauren vest from Bloomies – yes, she is MANHATTAN-eventer), is the red foam finger. Almost as eyecatching an accessory as Will Coleman, the foam finger made famous by Stephen Colbert when he decried “competitive horse prancing the sport of summer” truly does go with any outfit. (Imagine what will happen to horse prancing’s popularity when he takes over “Late Night!”) Plus, you can always sit on it.
