  13. I am a huge fan of Ariat. Ariat Terrain boots are the only style I ever wear and I always have a spare pair handy. I sing their praises to everyone. My new Ariat half chaps are also the best pair I have ever owned. Love their products!

  14. I have a grey and what goes better with that than red and blue! Would love the USA look!

  15. I love Ariat products! I started out with their boots a few years ago and I have been hooked ever since! They make good quality products that are hardy and long-lasting. Go Team Ariat!!!!!!!

  19. What a fun contest supporting both Ariat and Big D’s. I would love to sport the Ariat outfit at some of the schooling shows we take my boys to. My gray sports a red OTTB pad and we sure would look nice all color coordinated, LOL.

  20. I can’t get enough patriotic gear. My birthday is 9/11 which is now Patriot Day. I already have the Ariat Red/White/Blue FatBaby boots. Anything Ariat is for me….Go Team USA!

  21. Fine craftsmanship and exceptional quality just a few words to describe Ariat products. I have just thrown out my polo i used it hard at the barn and shows and even used it for going out it was dressy enough for dressing up yet casual enough for everyday use also. I am starting this year in jumping. I have always wanted to jump but just was not able to find the right instructor. She has me signed up for a show first week in september and i need to get some breeches and these would be perfect. Thanks for the oppurtunity to go in style and best of luck to TEAM USA happy trails

  22. I’m an Ariat junkie! What better way to support team usa than with this new outfit! Thanks for the chance to win!

  23. What a way to show your support for the USA! I already have Ariat stuff, would love to add to the collection!

  24. I compete in the Florida police/fire olympics Mounted Police Competition each June and local police competitions year round. I would love to wear Team Ariat clothing. The clothing looks sharp and comfortable. Ariat boots saved my foot during a rough accident. I will only wear Ariats when I ride!

  25. Well I only wear Ariat paddock boots, they are the only ones that fit me properly. But I would like to win the shirt and breeches to give as prizes for our Saddle Up for St. Jude benefit trail ride in January. We like to give quality prizes to all who come out and ride and donate to St. Jude.

  26. I love Ariat and can always use more riding clothes. The polo is great but does it fit “chesty” girls? Lol so many do not.

  27. I would love to win this contest for a few different reasons. First of all I would love to support team USA in this amazing ariat polo. I love the ariat line. I could really use some new breeches, my current show pair is starting to get holes in the seat and we all know how embarrassing it would be if those holes were. To get bigger during a show and having your underwear show ๐Ÿ™ Im excited for this contest cant waot to see the results. Thank you for this opportunity!! Good luck everyone!

  28. This is a Beautiful outfit Ariat has made supporting the US team!!! I would love to show my support wearing this !!!

  31. Arait has great clothes and foot gear!!! And they are good at supporting the riding sport. I would like to try their polo and breaches!

  32. After serving in the Army, any time I can show support for our troops or equestrian friends I would be more than happy to do so. Count me in for team Ariat! Go USA!

  33. I think it would be really neat to have one of the Ariat team shirts and a new pair of breeches! I’d love to win :))

  34. What a great way to show USA spirit right after the Youth World Cup and right before the AQHA World Show.

  35. As a young horse owning professional, most of my paycheck goes to caring for my 16-year-old rescued OTTB. He’s my once in a lifetime horse and I’d do anything for him…including riding in less-than-fashionable attire. I’d love to represent Team USA at the competitions we’ll be attending this summer and fall, and I’d love for Dorado to be as proud of my appearance as I am of him!

  36. Team USA!!! Team Ariat!!! I love Ariat and would love to wear these pants to the barn, and the breeches as well as my Ariat tall boots– An Ariat package!! More importantly, I’d wear them in public and will stand proud for the USA/Ariat spirit as well as being a proud Equestrian.. No matter how many crazy looks I get. Lol. I would love to win. Go USA!!!

  37. I proudly support the red, white, and blue and I’m wearing one of my pairs of Ariat boots or shoes when I’m doing it. Thanks to Ariat and Big Dee for this great contest.

  38. Ariat has some of the best quality products that I have tried. In fact, I always choose Ariat first. I love, love, love, my Ariat Lowland boots.

  39. Go USA! I’m proud to be an American. Thank you Ariat and Big Dee for your patriotism.

  43. I support team ariat, because my goal is to compete in grand prix one day. Go USA! ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. I took my daughter to visit her idol, Beezie Madden, earlier this spring. It has further strengthened her desire to compete and do her best. She could certainly do better and have more show confidence if she is equipped with this wonderful ARIAT gear!

  45. As a Virginia Tech graduate I’m familiar with intense team spirit. Whenever the Olymics come on I can’t help but turn my intense fan love from Virginia Tech to team USA. Breezie Madden has always been an idol of mine and to be able to watch her again in the Olymics is such a treat! Normally I wear Virginia Tech tee shirts everyday but during the Olymics I try to wear team USA gear. I would LOVE to be able to wear Olymic gear more often to show my team USA pride. Go team USA!!!!

  46. This is a great professional looking outfit! I would love to wear it as I teach my students and ride myself!

  47. I ride an all American breed, an Appaloosa. I wear Ariat Terrain H2Os & their winter paddock boots and prefer them to any other footwear. I’ve been watching the Olympics as long as they’ve been televised and am now thrilled with the expanded coverage of the equestrian events online. I am retired and know the importance of obtaining quality gear in order to enjoy my many horse activities comfortably and safely. It saves money in the long run. Most importantly, I am so grateful to live in the USA, which that has afforded me the opportunity to pursue my dream of finding my horse partner at the age of 54.

  48. I love that Ariat products incorporate innovative design and comfort features for riders.

  49. Come on now, don’t we all want to close our eyes and dream just a little? Who wouldn’t want to pretend that they were part of the Olympics when riding in these clothes…

  50. Proud to be American and always proud to support our USA Olympuc team! What a great outfit from Ariat! Just getting back into the horsey world and would love to sport the new outfit! Love Big D’s they have everything I need to get back in the saddle.

  51. What a great way to support Team USA and look great while doing so thanks to Ariat!! And I sure could use another pair of breeches since the zipper broke on mine… Opps!

  52. Ariat is where it’s at! Olympic, riding, work and pleasure any time. Support team USA they work so hard to be there for us thanks for your support and letting everyone show support also. I’m proud to have horses and love my sport there is a lot of USA in all of us

  53. Just getting back into riding after a fairly long hiatus, and this outfit would go a long way toward getting me ready for my first school shows in decades!

  54. GO AMERICA!! Always love to show American spirit and this would be perfect! Team USA!!
