Whether galloping around a five-star track during a European Nations Cup competition or good-naturedly goading her fellow competitors in the Riders Masters Cup this year in Paris, the U.S.A.'s Chloe Reid isn't just trendsetter, she's one of her country's brightest young show jumping stars.
Last year, the University of Miami student and her talented string earned consistent, top placings at FEI Nations Cup events, culminating with her selection to the CSIO5* FEI Nations Cup Jumping Final in Barcelona, Spain last fall. Seasonally based in Florida and with Markus and Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum in Thedinghausen, Germany during the summers, Reid is used to juggling college courses, horse shows, and a jet-setting international travel schedule—and has the wardrobe to match!
For the Fall 2017 issue of NOELLE FLOYD/Style magazine, Esther Hahn caught up with Reid to discover a few of her favorite riding pieces. Here's how to get two of Chloe's top looks for the schooling and the show rings.
