If you plan on riding during the cold winter months or even during chilly spring and autumn
days, you'll need a good horse riding coat to keep you warm. There are certain features you will want to keep in
mind when shopping for your next riding coat:
Ideally, your riding coat should not go down past your hips. This is in order to keep you seat
free from any extra fabric that could get in the way of your seat. It will also help your trainer to see your
position in the saddle, especially when jumping. If, however, you are buying a coat for trail rides or very cold
weather, you may want a coat that comes down further to keep your thighs warm.
The thickness of your jacket really depends on the riding conditions and temperature that you
are going to be riding in. For very cold weather, a thick quilted jacket is perfect. For warmer months, look for a
jacket that is lighter and acts as more of a shell to be worn over a sweater.
When deciding on a material for your riding coat, consider where you will be spending most of
your time. If you ride outdoors a lot and in rainy conditions, you may want a waxy, rain-proof coat to keep you
dry. For indoor riding, look for lightweight down jackets and fitted cloth jackets to keep you warm and comfortable
at the same time.
Which brand you choose is really up to personal preference. Take a look at companies like Toggi,
Harry Hall and Mountain Horse for some stylish riding coats offering outstanding value for money.
