Waistcoats are a great item to have for hacking at home to keep you warm, stylish and
comfortable. Fancier waistcoats can also be worn under showing jackets at competitions. If you want to buy a waistcoat
for competing, make sure it is used in your discipline. Each style of horse riding requires you to wear clothing that is specific to that discipline, so it's important that you comply with the rules and regulations.
At home, a waistcoat is a great alternative to wearing a big, bulky jacket. Waistcoats or vests
are designed to keep your main body warm, while giving you the ability to move easily. Waistcoats also fit very
snuggly, so your trainer will still be able to see your posture and position in the saddle. Another great thing
about waistcoats is that they can be easily worn over a show jacket when schooling in cold weather and taken off
right before entering the arena. Look for a hacking waistcoat that is wind resistant, warm and has a bit of stretch built
into the fabric.
Depending on your discipline, you may need a waistcoat for the show ring. There are some great
hunt style waistcoats that you can choose from that give you a truly classic look. Make sure your showing waistcoat fits
properly and looks good with your showing coat and showing shirt. You will want to look for one with a satin back
and lining as well as a buckle adjustment at the back.
