Horse riding is a noble and elegant art.

Let’s think about empress Elisabeth of Bavaria, better known as “Sissi”, a woman who went down in history as the symbol of freedom and courage and who, as you may know, was also ver good at horse riding.

However, talent is not enough if you want to become an expert of  horse riding, since wearing the right equestrian clothing is crucial, too, as well as the use of suitable fabrics enhancing the garments performance.

Equestrian clothing: the importance of boots and caps

Riding professionally and safely means relying on the right accessories. For instance, there are no jokeys without  the right riding boots, reaching up to the knee and having a strong sole to protect the jokeys’ feet on the stirrups.

Such boots, often made of leather, must not have any decorations – these latter may get entangled and cause damage – and may be matched with a pair of spurs.

Another fundamental accessory among horse riding equipment  is the cap. It must be breathable and safe since its task is to protect the rider’s head from violent impacts.

Horse riding breeches, beautiful and diverse

Also  riding breeches play a crucial role as part of horse riding apparel. Tight fitting on the calves and suitable to be fitted inside the boots, the exist in several models for women, men and kids.   

Women’s models, whether classic or similar to leggings – standing out for their elasticity and the ability to ensure maximum freedom of movement – are designed for different types of silhouettes.

Kids’ equestrian clothing need the same attention and care as the garments designed for adults; even in this case trousers can be breathable and waterproof and suitable for different climate conditions.
