The Collection

“These pieces are close to my heart and were crafted by dear friends I made during my time in the Appaloosa industry,” Burchett shares.

The handcrafted leather cuffs were designed by riding mentor Clint Haverty, and the horn bag and bull whip gifted from Hugh Murray, a childhood friend with whom Burchett recently reconnected. The boots are by No Name Boot Company and were purchased after a backcountry trip with photographer Barb Gerlach. “I admired the custom boots Barb had on during our ride,” Burchett shares. “Afterward she took me to the shop and I ended up with my own pair.”

The spurs and straps are by Harris Leather and Silverworks—a reminder of Burchett’s past showing Appaloosas. “I don’t show anymore, but all of my show tack came from Harris,” she says.
