colorful summer vibrant

With the tulips and daffodils emerging from the ground, take a cue from nature’s bright blooms this spring when transitioning your winter bag to something more seasonably suitable. If you’re out and about town, Paul & Lydia’s vibrant Blue Bits Equestrian Tote Bag and Pink Rider Equestrian Tote will keep your necessities organized while maintaining your equestrian style. P & L’s Orange Bits Wristlet is the perfect addition for an evening spent with friends. Bringing along P &L’s Large Pouch on spring break travels is the perfect addition to add to your suitcase or carry on. Each P & L tote bag, wristlet and pouch also wipes clean easily if you find yourself spending the day outside or at the barn.

Known for pairing equestrian style with functionality, Paul & Lydia totes, wristlets, small and large pouches draw on the tradition and the art of horsemanship in their designs. The Spring 2016 collection features a “bit” fabric design. A bit is a type of horse tack used in equestrian activities, usually made of metal and is placed in the mouth of a horse to assist the rider in communicating with their horse. The bit is held on a horse's head by a bridle and it has reins attached that are used by the rider.

 Inspired by the equestrian lifestyle, P & L bags are drawing on the ancient tradition of horsemanship. Over two thousand years ago, the ancient Greeks realized that if rider and horse wanted to survive in battle, cooperation between horse and rider was necessary. They developed Dressage as a method to train their horses. A horse’s ability to move quickly from side to side, gallop or change direction were all considered necessary skills.

The art of riding fell into oblivion until its revival during the Renaissance. Beginning in the eighteenth century, classical Dressage reached its pinnacle at the world-renowned Spanish Riding School in 1729 in Vienna, Austria. In modern times and with unprecedented success, the freestyle to music test was introduced and has since become a central part of Dressage, making its début in 1996 at the Olympics in Atlanta. “Freestyle” is the high point of Dressage and when it works, the result is enchanting.

Celebrate this rich equestrian history by bringing along a P & L tote to your next event, polo match, brunch, or competition.
