Gift Guide The Carolinas Equestrian 10

Whether you’re shopping for an anniversary, birthday or the holidays, gift selection for the equestrian enthusiast can sometimes be a daunting task. Here are a few items that we believe will not disappoint.


The Miron Crosby Margretta Tall Boot was inspired by the sweeping West Texas night skies and is whimsically inlayed and appliqued with jumping stars and crescent moons. The rich caramel leather is reminiscent of a traditional cowboy boot, while the metallic stars add a modern touch. Each boot is handcrafted in Texas and available for customization. Miron Crosby was founded by a set of entrepreneurial sisters in 2017 after years of not being able to find attractive, fashion-forward boots that were function. This pair retails for $2,750 at www.MironCrosby.com.
