Kristin can be found sporting a cap most of the time, but when barrel racing - her cowgirl hat is a must.
Yes, we know that no right-minded cowgirl would stack her hat into a space with 25 others, but with Wrapsit™ slipcover crate... it's possible! Want to learn more about cowboy hats, The Cowboy Hat Guide is a blog completely dedicated to this iconic item of western clothing.
For safety reason, pooches are not allowed inside the arena; but cowboy hats... are you kiddin'?
