Men’s riding apparel for horseback riding
Whether you are a recreational or competitive rider, your riding equipment helps keep you safe. The cuts and materials used for equestrian apparel preserve your mobility as a rider and reduce chafing and burning.
Why wear men's riding apparel?
Would you do motocross in a diving suit? Or go skiing in a judo kimono? Unless you want to win a bet, each sport has its own outfit. The same is true for horseback riding. Any self-respecting rider should wear clothing that is suitable for riding. Whether you practice leisure or sport riding, all your riding equipment contributes to your safety. The cuts and materials adapted to equestrian sports preserve your mobility as a rider and reduce friction and burns.
Choosing good riding apparel for men limits the risk of accidents and injuries. This functional clothing also protects you from the weather, including sun, wind, cold and rain. Not to mention that they wick away perspiration to keep you healthy and comfortable.
How should I dress for horseback riding?
Your riding outfit changes with your practice (frequency and discipline) and level. An experienced rider who competes in international jumping does not have the same needs as a beginner who is just starting out at a riding school.
Which men’s riding clothes should you choose when you are just starting out?
At first, a pair of men's riding trousers, riding boots (or ankle boots or riding boots with mini-chaps) and your riding helmet are all you need. These are the essentials. A protective airbag vest is not required, but it does provide better safety. You will soon want to purchase riding socks. They are the perfect size and have seams adapted to riding boots and trousers.
Your riding gear changes with Your needs
As you continue your riding journey, you can keep adding garments for all situations. Lightweight men's trousers for summer. You can choose silicone grips or knee braces to improve your position in the saddle. A waist that is high in the back and low in the front makes you look good and feel comfortable as you do your riding exercises. You can wear fleece-lined trousers in winter or overtrousers to protect you from the cold and rain. A pair of white competition trousers for men goes perfectly with your show riding jacket. You may be interested in the performance of riding tops such as sweatshirts, t-shirts and men's riding polo. Here again, cuts and materials provide comfort, breathability and aesthetics.
Riding clothes for all weather
Riding is usually an outdoor sport. A polo in summer, a warm riding jacket in winter, a waterproof jacket or a down jacket or vest completes your outfit. Riding clothes are designed to equip you efficiently while keeping you comfortable and avoiding scaring your horse. You can also wear riding gloves, which keep you in contact with the reins and prevent them from slipping. For summer, they are made of lightweight fabrics such as silk or leather. Warmer styles, such as fleece-lined gloves, are available to keep your hands warm in winter.

How Do I care for men’s riding clothes?
Cleaning your men's riding clothes is very simple. Follow the guide: your textiles do not need to be washed every time you use them. Shake or lightly brush your riding coat or show jacket to remove dust. Use a textile deodorizer if necessary. Your technical clothing is machine washable. If you come home with wet clothes, dry them properly so that odours do not set in. Before putting them in the washing machine, turn them inside out, close the velcro and zippers and empty the pockets. Program your washing machine to 30°C and 600 rpm, then select a synthetic programme. Caution: wash your feather down jacket on the delicate or down programme. If in doubt, consult the label. Once your laundry is finished, hang the articles to dry. High-performance technical clothing air dries quickly.
