Equestrian Riding Wear
For those who ride or compete regularly, part of the whole horse riding experience is dressing to look the part. Once the horse bug has bitten, the lure of well-cut jodhpurs, the snowy whiteness of a show shirt and the practicality of quality half chaps is hard to resist and becoming part of the riding scene means that rider’s wardrobes have to expand to accommodate suitable clothing.
Whatever the discipline, Central Saddlery has a selection of up-to-the-minute competition clothing ideal for showing, dressage, eventing or show jumping. With top brand names like Jeffries, Dublin and Shires producing breeches and jodhpurs to suit every occasion, competitive riders are spoilt for choice.
Riding jackets are a must in the ring and various styles are available in our selection to suit the various disciplines. Plain hacking jackets are correct for many classes, whilst those with velvet collars are usually seen in Riding Horse classes. Black or navy jackets are correct for the elegant Hack classes and are also seen both in the dressage and show jumping arenas.
Show shirts often come with a detachable collar making them the perfect purchase for a rider who wants to wear a stock for one event and a tie for the next. And of course, Central Saddlery has a range of suitable stocks, ties and stock pins for those flawless finishing touches.
Jodhpurs and Breeches
Well-fitted jodhpurs or breeches not only look good but also are comfortable to wear especially during rigorous riding sessions and long days out on the show field. Lighter colours like beige, white, putty and lemon are most suitable for competitive riding with darker colours proving more practical for everyday use.
Chaps, Gaiters and Over Trousers
Over trousers and full chaps are worth their weight in gold for cold or wet days and also for keeping clothing clean. And half chaps or gaiters are a must have for those who prefer to school or hack in short boots but require lower leg protection.
