It might not be the peak of summer just yet, but with the temperatures warming now that the clocks have moved forwards an hour, it’s the perfect opportunity to stock up on seasonal equestrian clothing. You can stash your winter jacket, thick jodhpurs and fur-lined goods back into the wardrobe for winter and start looking for more breathable and lightweight alternatives to see you through the Spring and Summer months!
Materials such as denim, corduroy or even lined Jodhpurs are great for the colder months of winter but offer little breathability come the warmer temperatures and so are best kept for the next cool season. Instead, purchase some cotton or combination fabric jodhpurs such as the HyPERFORMANCE burton ladies Jodhpurs which are comfortable and hardwearing making them perfect for every day riding, cleaning and exercising. Available in a range of colours and with a double stitched seat panel, they are a staple piece of equestrian clothing for all riders.
As optimistic as we like to be about summertime, the great British rain never fails to fall during the warmer months and so riders should be prepared with appropriate waterproof equestrian clothing. A waterproof jacket is a great piece that is lightweight and easy to transport and can be folded up in an instant if the sun pops out or quickly thrown over an outfit to protect from a sudden downpour. Our HKM Raincoat Seattle is ideal for riding as it is long enough to cover you and the saddle, making your horse more comfortable in wet weather too.
Polo’s & T-Shirts
While you might have been embracing thermals and jumpers in the winter, summer is all about the polo’s and T-shirts so make sure you have enough for your busy equine schedule. Opt for lighter colours which will reflect the suns beams when riding to avoid sunburn or heat stroke and if you’re set for an intense day of riding undo a button or two to let more air circulate the body.
