March 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 159

Fashion need not be left behind while riding a horse. Fashionable and functional equestrian clothing gives you the great option of being stylish, yet comfortable and protected while riding your favourite horse. Horse riding has become very popular in the recent world. It is a wonderful sport, but caution and care has to be taken both in the way you ride or the way you dress. You should be prepared well with all kinds of equipment to rule that countryside. And with the right amount of practice and training you are the king of the countryside.

Equestrian clothing consists of coats, pants, riding breeches, dusters, riding jackets, tops, footwear, helmets, riding gloves, shirts and other accessories. Blend your attire well by wearing colour coordinated tops and jackets, along with the rest of the attire. A good rider is always noticed, but a fashionable, good rider is always remembered. Selecting a plaid pattern or the wool coat with the functional patch pockets and snap toggles are a good option.

Breeches are quite fashionable and you must select your layers carefully to give the fashionable, yet comfortable look. You need to be comfortable while mounting and sitting on your horse. Your breeches need to be tailored well for the right cut and design. When selecting the clothing, also ponder about the durability and the wash maintenance. Nowadays, you could avail a spandex blend, cotton blend or even a Lycra blend. The Lycra touch could give to the elasticity needed by mounting and riding. Fashion is nothing but flaunting your style with comfort. So, never compromise on comfort, as this would ultimately affect your riding ability.

There are some specialized outlets for your equestrian needs, where you can buy the latest jodhpurs or riding boots. Compare the quality and prices at the different stores before you decide on the right attire for you. A pair of sturdy boots should boost your mounting ability and allow you to lock your foot in the stirrups securely. Leather might give you the right comfort and protection.

Helmets are necessary while riding. However, we need not look at them just as any other gear. Stylish and classy ones that also follow the safety codes are available now, to go with your jodhpurs or a wool coat. Riding in the cold can be made fun if the right apparel and appropriate protection is taken. The right equestrian clothing, be it the leather boots or jumpers and jackets could keep you warm and comfortable while riding a horse. Wearing layers of clothing could become a hassle when you are working a sweat. However, comfortable and apt clothing that is made for riding a horse can give you the ultimate comfort. These jackets also protect you from the cold air that seeps through you while riding in winter.
