Equestrian Chic; Women in the Saddle

Last year 23-year-old jockey Rosie Napravnik became the sixth female jockey to ride in the Kentucky Derby.  While she didn’t make it to the winner’s circle Napravnik finished 9th, the best finish for a female jockey in the history of the derby.

While Napravnik isn’t riding in this year’s Kentucky Derby (no female jockey is) here are a few photos of some stylish ladies who take equestrian chic to a whole new level.
