Soul Shine saddle pads, available in both Western and English conf gurations, are then manufactured in the USA from these brilliant and durable fabrics. And although each fabric is unique, the group shares uniform high quality. Perhaps best of all: The hand-looming of Soul Shine Saddle Pads helps procure education, medical supplies and housing for women and children in these remote villages, while keeping an ancient artisan craft alive.

"We saw the opportunity to reach a new consumer in the English market and leveraged our boot-making expertise to reach a new discipline, while still of ering the performance and comfort features the Justin name is known for," says Louis Russo, brand manager for Justin Boots. "With this collection, English riders can enjoy a quality Justin boot at an af ordable price." One of the most innovative design elements in Justin's f eld boot is the medial patch, made from a state-of-the-art high-grip fabric with a "tackiness" that enables riders to better maintain leg position. The f eld boot is also built on a semi-curve last, which is more anatomically correct than a straight last. The f eld and paddock boots each have solid rubber outsoles with a forefoot tread pattern to aid in stirrup stabilization; cushioning, shock-absorbing footbeds; and durable urothene spur rests. Justin's half-chaps, available in black or chocolate (as are the paddock boots), share the same innovative medial patch with the f eld boots. Combined with the paddock boots, the appearance is similar to tall boots. MSRPs: Paddock Boot: $144; Half-Chap: $164,.Field Boot: $280.
