Spring Riding Jackets Buying Guide
Tired of wearing your Winter riding coat? Us too!
Spring has most definitely sprung here in the UK. Now that March is well behind us and we’re well into British Summer Time, we equestrians are all thrilled that our ‘mole-like’ existence of being forever in the dark in the early mornings and from tea-time onwards has passed… for the time being at least!
However, navigating the temperamental climate changes - one day it’s raining, the next it’s a pleasant 21 degrees, etc - is no easy feat. The key is having the right Spring jacket. Here at EQUUS we know exactly the type of lightweight layer that you need. To help your winter-to-spring transition, we’ve rounded up three of the very best jackets especially for you from our Spring/Summer 2020 collection.
On trend this year and practically everywhere you look on the High Street, are quilted jackets. They’re really easy to wear and are definitely the perfect item of clothing for those days when you don’t know what the weather is going to do. So it’s great to see the Pikeur Ilvy Quilted Jacket. With an eye-catching and modern shiny finish to the fabric, this jacket is right on trend and functional too, with a detachable hood and a 2-way riding zip. Available in this stunning Bordeaux, stylish Anthracite, or gorgeous Taupe.
Next up is the Busse Sentinal Jacket. As the name suggests, this lightweight, waterproof summer jacket is designed to protect you. How many jackets do you know that can claim to be waterproof...? Water resistant, yes maybe... but waterproof is actually quite rare. On its own, being waterproof makes this jacket an essential part of an equestrian’s wardrobe, combined with which it comes with a long list of great practical features, like a breathable membrane to prevent over-heating, a detachable hood, and waterproof pockets. It's available in Navy and looks smart in or out of the saddle.
If you're looking for a design that you can wear on and off the yard, check out the LeMieux Loire Jacket. It has a stunning and sophisticated design that looks just as good with jeans as it does with breeches. It has a stitch-detail front panel and a gull wing collar that can be worn up or folded down for two different looks. It's functional too, made from 4-way stretch fabric to move with you as you ride and featuring zip pockets for your belongings. It comes in this season's colour, French Rose, as well as Mulberry and Black.
