Why Yeti Coolers Should Be Part of Your Barn Necessities

Yeti coolers and accessories are groundbreaking, built for the serious outdoor enthusiasts. Made from roto-molded polyethylene, Yeti coolers are UV resistant and heavily insulated. They are the coolers of choice for outdoorsmen and cowboys alike, being that it takes an overwhelmingly long amount of time for the ice inside to melt. A Yeti cooler should be part of your barn necessities, and Sheplers will tell you why.

Whether there is barn help or not, being out on the ranch all day can truly take a toll, especially when there is no AC. Many stables at the ranch are not air conditioned, so it can become awfully warm inside. As one of the greatest barn necessities, Yeti coolers stay cold to keep everything inside at a temperature feeling as if it was still inside of a refrigerator in your home. This is important for refreshing waters when you are working hard out there.

Certain supplements and medications for your animals also require refrigeration, in which Yeti coolers come to the rescue again. Instead of keeping a mini fridge in your barn, your favorite Yeti barn necessities are portable.

While mucking stalls, feeding, and bathing your horses, you will be outside all day. Yeti coolers should become top on your list of barn necessities because while you work hard to maintain your ranch, your cooler works hard to keep your food and drinks cold. You no longer have to worry about your sandwich spoiling in the heat.

The little Yeti Hopper soft side cooler is leak resistant and perfect for a ride on the trail with your horse. This cooler is puncture-resistant, leak-proof, and part of your new barn necessities list.

You can find Yeti coolers and other Yeti accessories to add to your barn necessities in Sheplers’ Yeti Coolers & Accessories catalog.

Equestrian Clothing Specifically Designed for Horseback Riding

Horseback riding is a hobby that Sheplers is quite familiar with, being that we supply various different equestrian boots and apparel for women and men. If you are new to the riding world, equestrian clothing can be strange. If you are just beginning your equestrian journey, it is beneficial for you to allot the funds needed. This means that you should take the time to research and purchase quality items that will last in the long run, or should we say, long ride.

It is important that you prepare for comfort when shopping for equestrian clothing and dressing for riding. Sitting on the back of a horse can become uncomfortable over an extended amount of time. Comfortable equestrian clothes matter when it comes to pants, boots, and shirts. Show clothes are completely different than everyday riding clothes, so Sheplers will provide you with the basics.

Riding pants, as far as comfortable equestrian clothing goes, are best as two or four-way stretch fabric. These pants are also called jodhpurs or breeches. Some breeches come equipped with knee and seat patches. These patches come in suede or leather.

For daily riders, a riding shirt can be any comfortable shirt in which you prefer. Your best bet is a shirt with a collar, because traditional polo and rugby shirts never go out of style. If going out on a trail, a snug fitting, bright colored shirt works best so it does not snag on to any branches and you can be easily seen.

Your footwear is one of the most important items of equestrian clothing, as well as your helmet. Your riding boots must be close-toed, with a small heel to keep your feet from slipping out of the stirrups. Most stables provide helmets; but if not, make sure the strap to your helmet is not too tight underneath your chin. Also make sure that the lid fits just right to where it stays in place, but is not too tight.

While equestrian clothing might seem different at first, it is designed for functionality and comfort. You can find the best equestrian clothing for the greatest prices here at Sheplers!

How Leather Boots Should Fit

Leather boots should fit in a comfortable way right from the very start. Sheplers, the #1 western wear and boot store on the web, ships out hundreds of leather boots weekly. Because when shopping with Sheplers you are unable to try before you buy, we have a few tips for you to ensure the boots you have purchased are the proper fit when you receive them in the mail.

It is wise that you check the boot fit when you are standing up straight. You should also put the boots on during the afternoon, for this is when feet tend to feel the largest.

Leather boots should fit and cover the entire foot, while feeling perfectly snug.

However, your leather boots should fit only the heel a little bit loose. You should be able to fit one finger in between your heel and the back of your boot when your foot is pushed fully forward.

Your toes should not be cramped in your boots, especially your big toe.

At the widest point on the foot being the sides, your leather boots should fit as if there is no pressure on the sides of your feet.

Good boots provide ankle support. To test how your leather boots should fit considering ankle support, stand on the sides of your feet. If they bend easily or if there is too much leeway, they will not provide you with the support you need while wearing them.

Sheplers has a boot fit guide, perfect to further your knowledge on how leather boots should fit the foot.
