The Best Horse Riding Jackets

The Best Horse Riding Jackets

The lighter evenings are a sign that spring is on its way, so it's time to start switching to transitional outer layers. At this time of year, we equestrians can find it hard to know what outer layers we should wear as it's too cold to wear a base layer alone, yet often a warm winter riding coat isn't needed. So we've gathered together our favourite horse riding jackets that are perfect outer layers for late winter and early spring. Don't forget, you'll earn Rosette Reward Points and receive FREE UK delivery on all orders over £20 at EQUUS!

It's back this year in its original classic navy and in a smart new grey colour. It's 100% waterproof, breathable, has a filled lining and a high collar to keep you snug, and is the perfect transitional piece to take you into winter.
