Hats Off for the Horses

Derby Hats auctioned off to benefit retired resued racehorses

Hats Off for the Horses

From her one-woman studio on Cape Cod, milliner Sally Faith Steinmann creates the equivalent of wearable confectionary – one-of-akind hats for the race track, polo field, show ring, or wedding chapel — as stunning and charismatic as any equine champion.

Steinmann, 51, turned a passion for horses, and girlhood joy for dabbling in ribbons and tulle into a successful business, Maggie Mae Designs® (whose custom Derby hats fetch $700 to $1200) and a generous avenue for fund-raising, that has been changing the lives of retired Thoroughbred race horses for the better.

rocks, cacti and wildlife that characterized the landscape. Despite the solitude,
Latta was easily entertained, for she had the vast wilderness to explore.
