Equestrian fashion guide
Horse riding is one of the most exhilarating recreational activities around. It is not only fun but also very beneficial to health. The best part about horse riding is that there is hardly any limitation of age and abilities. This makes riding accessible and enjoyable to adults and children. All you need is a good set of riding clothes and boots and you are good to go.
Horse riding clothes are available almost everywhere and they aren’t very expensive. One of the first things you would require would be horse riding shirt. Unless you are planning on going for a horse show a regular t-shirt or sweat shirt would be more than sufficient. Now if the weather is quite chilly it would be great if you could get an equestrian riding jacket. Among the riding jackets the Kerrits 24K Equestrian Riding Jacket would be a good option.
The Kerrits 24K Equestrian Riding Jacket is one of the most comfortable riding jackets you will find. This jacket is wind, water, and stain resistant. This jacket is machine washable and is wrinkle free so you don’t have to iron it every now and then. The fabric used for this jacket is quite light weight and the Slim stretch fit doesn’t restrict movement.
Once you’ve got yourself a jacket, you should consider getting pants which are comfortable and which do not restrict movement. Stirrup pants are basically close-fitting pants that tapers at the ankle. There usually is a band or a strap at the end of the pant that keeps it in place. They always stick in place thanks to the band. Jodhpurs are also worn by a lot of riders because of their durability and ruggedness.
Last but not the least you will require riding boots. Riding boots with about a 1 to 1 ½ inch heel and a low tread is what you should be looking for. These boots are usually made of leather. The slightly cheaper ones are made with a combination of both leather and rubber.
