Equestrian Clothing For On and Off the Horse

March 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 155

With its roots in horse shows and other equestrian activities, equestrian clothing has now entered mainstream fashion, with several different styles and pieces for either gender. The designs run the gambit from classic English attire to a more modern European flavor to rugged cowboy styles. The equestrian style can combine with any outfit to add a classic rugged look.

Women's clothing includes jeans or jodhpurs, made from denim, cotton or polyester. Breeches which are a cover for the pants made from suede to protect the rider where they come in contact with the horse or from polyester/spandex for casual clothes or fleece to protect from the cold. Riding boots which are a tall boot style made of quality leather, riding chaps which provide protection for the boots and lower legs. Show shirts with high, wrapped collars made of various materials with a dress shirt style. Show coats often made in a three button style of polyester, riding helmets which often are low-profile, ventilated and cushioned on the inside and designed to protect the rider in a fall. Sports shirts which are an everyday shirt cut in the show shirt style but with short sleeves. Casual riding jackets cut in the show coat style often adding either two buttons or length with a zipper replacing the buttons. Riding gloves made with leather and designed to help keep a firm grip on the reins, and even winter wear or sleepwear, with many different accessories to choose from.

Men's equestrian clothing features breeches, protecting the rider and their pants where they contact their horse, and some even combine with jeans to create an extremely durable and comfortable pair of pants. Riding chaps, which protect the boots and pants and are usually made of suede. Sturdy boots made of leather cut in a tall fashion and gloves made of leather and designed to withstand repeated wear due to contact with horse reins. Helmets that are made in a low-profile fashion and are ventilated, protecting the riders head while on horseback. Casual riding jackets often waterproof, windproof and with a breathable inner lining made of fleece, with a variety of accessories to complement their outfits.

Equestrian clothing also is available in children's sizes and styles, with some pieces of clothing designed to grow with the rider. There are many accessories for their horses also. These clothes are very durable and are wearable whether competing in horse shows or walking around town.
