Winter riding is inevitable; unlike other sports where it’s easy to leave your equipment in the garage and wait for spring, we equestrians know that we have a horse or pony waiting for us at the stable. That means trudging to the barn in high wind, snow or rain, even when it’s 20 below. Whether this is your first winter riding in the cold or you’re a cold weather pro, we’ve compiled a list of 6 horseback riding essentials to get you through even the toughest of winters
Technology-driven function meets style in a modern silhouette topped with a cozy cowl neck. Insulated for superior warmth and reinforced with flattering quilting, Ariat’s exclusive AriatTEK® Cold Series technology will ensure your body core stays warm. Wind and water resistant, it employs a thin technological coating to block wind and protect from light rain as well. Feel Good Bonus- the Bluesign® fabric meets strict environmental standards!
Indulge in technical performance tights that feel just as deliciously comfortable as your favorite sweatpants, but are made for riding! The Kerrits Ladies Power Stretch Knee Patch Pocket Tight have soft, brushed fleece inside these thermal-weight tights insulates to keep you warm while the matte exterior sheds hay and hair. Anti-slip Kerrits Stick knee patches secure your position. A great insulator; thermal weight Polartec® Power Stretch® is brushed for softness next-to-skin. Bonus- a secure zipper pocket that is purposely placed for in-saddle use!
The Kerrits Ice Fil Lite Long Sleeve Riding Shirt is the perfect base layer to wear under the Ariat Kilter Jacket for optimal warmth.
