Express your inner equestrian with a kickin’ pair of boots, a bling-heavy belt, or a wide-brimmed hat. We lassoed local model Amber Robertson to show off the season’s western-inspired designer duds and cowgirl classics. Robertson has been riding horses since she was 6 years old and is as comfortable on a ranch as she is on a runway. When she’s not in front of the camera, she competes in hunter/jumper competitions. Here, she strikes a pose with Casino, an American paint horse, at the High Star Ranch in Kamas.
