What do you have in common with dressage stars like Laura Graves or Lisa Wilcox? More than you might think.
Because when it comes to good grooming, we know how to devote hours before a show to assuring that our horses look their very best, from their button braids to their gleaming coats. But what these and other award-winning equestrians understand is how presenting a finished appearance isn’t just about the horse: It’s about putting her best face forward, too.

Equestrian Living - Dressage Rider & Makeup Pro Leslie Munsell embraces the concept that less is more.
We first met Leslie Munsell at an Equestrian Living photoshoot in Wellington, Florida. It was an ambitious shoot for a gatefold cover featuring many of the top riders, owners, and trainers. That day, Leslie, tall and regal, was wearing her makeup-artist hat rather than her headgear of choice - a riding helmet.
