On Thursday, December 13th, Horse&Style attended the Giant Steps Therapeutic Riding Center’s shopping event at Saks Fifth Avenue in San Francisco. Ten percent of sales from shoppers who mentioned Giant Steps when making a purchase went to benefit the charity.

While trying not to go overboard with equestrian accessories, I did wear a back/tan cashmere sweater from SI.IAE, Hudson jeans, a Tory Burch necklace, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, and I grabbed my new FENDI bag to top off the look!

Giant Steps Executive Director Beth Porter and  board members Kristen Lowenthall, Ashley Herman, Alex Witherill, and  Terri Roberson were in attendance, along with Giant Steps volunteers and fellow equestrian friends of the organization. White cosmos and assorted appetizers were served to the well-dressed and charitable attendants. Shoppers helped raise thousands for Giant Steps during this memorable event.
