Free up your movement

Whether competition or training, certain stances adopted by horse riders have much in common with those of cross-country skiers or cyclists. From sagging legs to tilting the body; grouping the limbs is a must when you seek aerodynamics and balance.


Testing equipment used in these disciplines has taught us many lessons. The first is the need to maximise the ability of these outfits to meet practical needs. Comfort, flexibility, placement – trying it is wanting it. The second thing to remember is a heads up: The crossover to horse-riding requires us to manoeuvre.

That is the challenge we have set ourselves.


We studied the different positions of the horseback rider over different disciplines or on foot during the many stages of preparation and follow-up of the horse. We identified several areas in which we could improve:

  • The isolation of shoulder movements during jumping phases
  • The lack of kidney protection
  • The embarrassment when a garment gets caught in the cantle or the pommel of the saddle.
  • The sleeve position; rarely straight like on a city centre suit jacket
  • The surplus material on the front of the garment


All of which paved the way to develop Preform Fit technology, which aims to release the rider movements; free of tension and free of all hindrance.

Where to find?

Preform Fit removes everything you don’t need and keeps what you do, guaranteeing you better mobility. We deploy this technology throughout the Horse Pilot textile range.
