The Best Perfumes for Equestrians


Although equestrians come to love the smell of sweat, horse manure, and peppermints — most people are not such big fans. Next time you cannot head right home after a day at the barn, consider purchasing a perfume that will mask the smell of horses, much to the delight of non-equestrians everywhere. Here are some of my favorite perfumes from Sephora so you can leave the barn smelling great and feeling confident.
