Riding Habit Revised a column where equestrian fashion and decor is reviewed with a modern edge.
Back in May, Riding Habit Revised brought you the scoop on Georgina Bloomberg’s amazing charity, The Rider’s Closet (here), and its mission to make riding clothes more accessible to therapeutic riding programs, pony clubs, intercollegiate riding programs and individual riders in the United States who are in need. We noted that the number one request from The Riding Closet today is for ladies’ tall boots, particularly in sizes 7-10.
We are now pleased to report that this need has been taken up by one of the finest boot makers in the world! Der Dau Custom Riding Boots has initiated a program to accept trade-ins of existing riding boots in exchange for a credit applied towards a future order of the company’s exclusive Dream Boots. Each used pair will then be refurbished as needed by Der Dau’s expert craftsman and donated to The Rider’s Closet.
Der Dau accepts all brands of boots that are in acceptable working condition. To determine the value of your trade-in, bring your boots in to one of Der Dau’s booths/showrooms, excluding third party dealers, at equestrian events across the U.S. and Europe. Just in case you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing Der Dau’s lovely booth, here’s a peak inside from The Royal!
Next time you are in the market for your own pair of Dream Boots, why not treat others as you treat yourself? Trade-in that pair of riding boots that are just collecting dust in the back of your own rider’s closet, and you’ll make another rider’s dream of boots come true too! Print out the flyer below as a reminder to yourself and to share with others.
