Buying Guides

Welcome to our equestrian clothing buying guides. Here you'll find lots of helpful information about the horse riding brands and products we offer, and why we offer them. Kim and everyone in her team at EQUUS, ride and compete, and they all have excellent knowledge about what you need to reach your potential as a rider. But that's not all. Here at EQUUS we believe that you, our customer, should have a say too! Because of this, we love to hear your feedback about what you need and why you need it. If you're looking for something that we don't have, then drop Kim an e-mail on our Contact Us page. She'd love to hear from you!
