Bold hats really embrace the strong western style – every piece can and should be a statement as the hat trend is still going strong in 2019.

Charlie 1 Horse and Bailey are two of the strongest ladies hat designs emerging in ladies western fashion. The hats are affordable and give the look of a custom lid, but keep things in check in the price range of $89-$149.

With an extensive background in the discipline, Lee McLean of Longview, AB, has become known as the matriarch of sidesaddle in Canada. In this educational video, McLean gives us the rundown on how to ride like a Victorian lady.
