When asked for her thoughts on The Distinguished Rider, and Kingsley boots, she had this to say:
"Kingsley boots are hands down the most comfortable, stylish, and long lasting boots I've owned. I wear them all day and ride 6-8 horses per day and they hold up so well."
"The Distinguished Rider not only oozes with passion for what they do, but they provide the absolute best customer service out there. TDR makes the boot designing and purchasing process so much fun and stress free. Marissa is so creative in the design process, and I love all of the updates I get once the boots are in production. I am so honored to work with a company that provides a high quality product backed by unmatched customer service."
Katie on her favorite Kingsley boot model:
"I love ALL of the models! I have a pair of London’s, Orlando’s, and 2 pairs of the Capri’s. My favorite boot is the Capri, especially my patent leather pair. They are so low maintenance, easy to clean, and gorgeous!"
What is Katie doing/working on now?:
"I just launched a new blog, this month I will be taking 2 young horses to Devon, and after that I will start gearing up to spend the winter in Wellington with 9 horses!"
