Horse Pilot designs technical clothing for riders who live horseback riding as a sport. Horse riding is a sport in which we move, we sweat, we take the rain and where we sometimes fall. To meet these needs, we use all the tools offered by textile technology: materials, cuts and constructions that provide support, breathability, insulation and protection.
The sweatshirt, the essential technical clothing for riding
When riding in or outdoor, it is essential to wear comfortable and warm clothes to avoid getting cold. When it is a little chilly, especially in the early morning, in the evening, or when you want to hike in the forest or on the beach, the jacket is a little too hot, especially during the summer. What riders look for are sweatshirts, that is to say long-sleeved tops, to feel good in all circumstances.
A light and comfortable technical sweatshirt
The most important criterion for a technical riding clothing is comfort. It is important to feel at ease in your outfit so that you can only think about your actions. For many years, Horse Pilot has made it a point of honour to constantly look for ways to improve the horse riding kits. Our sweatshirts keep the body perfectly warm thanks to the use of polar fleece. The sleeves of the Tempest and Hybrid Tempest sweatshirts have fingerless mitt sleeves with thumbholes to protect your hands from the cold. Hooded models have a zip to protect the neck from air infiltration. The closure of the sweatshirt and pockets is also zipped to facilitate the rider's movements. In addition, the Extra Comfort technology that we have developed limits friction to offer even greater ease of movement.
When riding, it is important to find technical clothing that adapts to both the body shape and the posture of the athlete during exercise. However, equipment for riders must take into account the different positions of walk, trot and canter to offer the best performance to athletes. The technology Perform Fit from Horse Pilot helps to assist all the athlete's movements in any conditions and without any tension or blockage. In our design workshops, we aim to offer flexible and ergonomic clothing to promote balance. The ergonomic cut-outs of our sweatshirts protect the kidneys unlike other technical clothing. The sleeves are preformed for even more aerodynamics.
When riding, it is important to stay warm, but you must be able to drain off sweat to stay dry in all circumstances. However, the rider is constantly exposed to significant temperature variations. It is important that technical clothing is both cold resistant and also regulates body heat. Our sweatshirts use Aerotech technology to create an underwear ventilation effect. As a result, the body temperature is self-regulated. Depending on the morphology of the athlete and the nature of the item, the location of the vents is optimized to offer maximum performance .
Very trendy sweatshirts
At Horse Pilot, our designers are very focused on the performance and comfort of the horse riders' equipment. However, aesthetics is also an important aspect in our design workshops. We are constantly looking to offer beautiful products that follow the trend. This is why the choice of textiles, cut and colours are taken into account when developing our collections in order to offer riders trendy outfits.
