Lindsay Porter is an equestrian enthusiast living in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. She’s proud to call this rural place her home.
“Small town living may not be for everyone, but it made me who I am and I wouldn’t trade my experience for the world,” says Lindsay.
Lindsay discusses a variety of equestrian topics weekly on her blog, Paperchases & Petticoats with co-founder and friend Mary. Together they offer product reviews and cover style, wellness, and lifestyle pieces.
Lindsay describes her style as laid-back. She likes well-tailored basics and pairs them with color and fun accessories to achieve a street-to-stable look. Among her favorite brands are Rönner Design, Kastel Denmark, and Dubarry Of Ireland.
Favorite Equestrian Brands
Rönner Design: Now this brand is definitely in my top THREE! I can’t explain what it is, but everything they make is so amazing. Before I started wearing Rönner, I didn’t understand how one could splurge so much on riding clothes. I’ve been lucky enough to find a few of their pieces on sale over the years and want to keep them forever, so I hand wash them in the sink and hang them to dry.
Kastel Denmark: Kastel Denmark has been a recent favorite of mine. The quality of their clothing is just so good and everything is comfortable and versatile for everyday use. I love this sunshirt so much and am thinking about picking it up in other colors. While their prices can be a little higher, they are totally worth it!
Dubarry Of Ireland: I don’t think I’ve ever met a Dubarry product I didn’t like. Favorites: Longford leather boot in brown/black and Fiji boat shoe in terracotta.
Lindsay boards her beloved horse, Dexter at Chaparral. Chaparral is a stunning boarding facility with a focus on reining, but any discipline is welcome. The barn provides a drama free and relaxing atmosphere for riders and their horses. While Chaparral has the capacity for 30 horses, the owners limit boarders to just six to prevent overcrowding.
The barn provides a friendly environment, wonderful care, and great amenities. All of these aspects make the one hour drive Lindsay has to commute from work worth it. Not to mention the views are spectacular and this place is definitely Instagram worthy. Make sure you are following @paperchasesandpetticoats on Instagram to see more beautiful photos around the barn.
“I think there’s something incredibly romantic about the cupolas that sit atop of the barn and indoor arena,” says Lindsay. “They’re a terrific architectural feature that you just don’t see a lot anymore in barn design. Plus they’re completely functional, helping natural light infiltrate the main aisle.”

@miltonmenasco – All I want is for Alli to be inspired by my account as much as I am inspired by hers. The light and minimalistic vibes of her feed are a dream come true for me.
@huntseatpaperco – I always smile when Amy’s posts pop up in my late night scrolling. Her designs are the best kind of quirky, and I have a low-key obsession with being her best friend.
