I cannot tell you enough about our love for Rebecca Ray Designs. Her equestrian inspired designs, superior craftsmanship and fabrics/leathers, and especially the fact that all her pieces are made in the USA surpasses our highest expectations for a designer most fitting for AHT Boutique.
Here is a little snip-it about Rebecca and her team, pulled straight from www.RebeccaRayDesign.com: Throughout her life, Rebecca has amassed a collection of sporting art, vintage fabrics, jewelry and paper ephemera. Creating a lifestyle company that incorporates her collections and passion for animals is her way of sharing her interests.
It only seems fitting that as the business has grown, Rebecca has included family and friends who share her passion. From the harness makers who bench-make our leather designs to the sales team who ride and show world-class horses, a team of sporting enthusiasts work side by side to develop Rebecca Ray products.
Today, through the use of authentic equestrian hardware, responsibly tanned leather, traditional handwork, and the finest quality fabrics, RRD reflects the spirit of the Sporting Lifestyle: nostalgic, modern and timeless. Uniquely American.
Rebecca Yuhasz Smith lives and works in bucolic Chagrin Falls, Ohio, where she and her husband Derek and young daughter Elizabeth are restoring a historic 35 acre farm. Their small menagerie of eleven show dogs, three horses, two ponies, four English Lop bunnies and four cats, along with Rebecca Ray Designs keeps them hopping.
Happy weekend shopping!!! You don't want to miss our special!
We are in the midst of Youth Nationals, which takes place in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This event is attended by the whole family filled with fun competition and activities. We especially love Youth Nationals because of the excitement it holds. The competitors put in hours and hours of lesson and get to showcase their incredible skills at a National level. Its not just about the eager competitors but their horses too, who, follow intently to the lead of their young rider.
If you are attending Youth, whether as a competitor, parent, brother, sister or just a spectator, soak up this youthful excitement!
Below is Hadley Ames, a young competitor, who is enjoying the Youth Nationals Yearbook created by, the one and only, Arabian Horse Times.
Hello World!! Posted on 27 May 11:56 , 0 comments
Fresh and easy were the two words in mind when creating our new boutique website. We wanted the product to look fresh and the website easy to shop.
From the looks of the new site, we believe both have been accomplished! It truly is a major undertaking...new photos were the daunting task at hand. How can we photograph product, such as jewelry so our shoppers can really "feel" the product and know exactly how it will look on themselves. We researched site after site, pinterest, google, a little trial & error and a lot of patience.
Let us know what you think? We want to continue to improve and we are here to listen. Tell us what you like or don't like.
Until next time our friendly shoppers!
