Spring is fast approaching.
April showers, storm-force gales and sunny spells are all expected weather fronts in this interchangeable and energetic season. But whether you’re riding in snow, sleet, rain or sunshine, good waterproof jackets can offer protection from the elements and some serious style.
When you’re choosing a new equestrian riding jacket it’s important to consider exactly what you plan on wearing it for, this will determine the style and type of jacket you choose.
Most riding jackets tend to be either quilted or waterproof, and if you need a riding jacket for general yard work, then some level of water resistance is essential.
Consider the added features you might want in a jacket. A long jacket might be suitable to provide extra warmth in cold weather conditions. You might want exterior zip pockets or an inside zip pocket for your most essential items and valuables. Would a hood help you to stay warm and dry? Or would a removable hood suit you better?
It’s important to think about the kind of activities you want to conduct in your jacket and which features (stylistic or functional) you’ll benefit most from, but it’s also crucial to feel and look good in the jacket too. The better you feel in it, the better you’ll ride! Many jackets feature an elasticised cinched waist to create a flattering silhouette – perfect for the style conscious.
