These days I simply have better hats.
To me a cowboy hat is a symbol. It’s a uniquely American icon in itself. To me a cowboy hat stands for something. It means you hold yourself to a higher standard. You open and hold doors for ladies, you use your best manners all the time, you protect and speak up for the young, the weak and the elderly. A cowboy hat means you have a can do attitude and won’t be swayed by popular opinion, jeers or bullies. You do what’s right. You honor God, your family, your flag and yourself. It’s about respect. It’s about being humble but having pride in who you are.
There’s an old adage about a cowboy code or code of the west. I believe when you put a cowboy hat on your head, you are telling the world who you are and what you stand for.
When I look around our world today, I sure think we need more cowboy hats.
No, I never hide my hat in a hat can when I travel, I wear it.
They are just absolutely gorgeous – even better than I had imagined! I took them to our barn and everyone just LOVED them. I am at a dressage barn now in North Carolina. I am the only barrel racer, but they have accepted me. Those ladies were soooo impressed! They couldn’t believe that the custom hat process still existed and how fantastic the workmanship was. They also loved the double hat can. I gave your website address to a couple of them. Some actually go to the NFR and thought they would be great to wear there.
Steph also received her breast cancer hat on Wednesday. She was just thrilled and very happy with it. She actually had already purchased a new saddle with a pink seat and rhinestones a couple weeks ago. I am really glad we got it for her as a gift and that we “blinged” it out some. The “bling” was always so not her – I think that ordering that hat actually changed her outlook on how she dresses herself and her horse!
Steph and I both said that the hats are just so pretty, we are just bound to run faster! It’s an inside joke between Kip and I…whenever I go to buy something for fashion or shows in general, he always asks if it’s going to make me run faster.
Thank you so much! We all look forward to seeing you both at Congress again this year and having a drink (or two) with ya! We’ll be there the last week for the contesting.
Thanks again and have a great rest of the summer!
Thank you, Shorty. We really appreciate it.
Just wanted y’all to know folks here are complimenting my hat. I’m strutting proudly and telling loudly about the “Queen of Crowns” and her wonderful court – Shorty’s Caboy Hattery. I told a guy the other day, “There is no way in heck I’ll buy a custom hat anywhere else! I’ve tried the rest and now I own the best. Shorty’s Caboy Hattery is the best there is! Everything else is just fancy felt.
Quality remains long after the price is forgotten!
