Is a normal jacket also suitable for riding?
A normal jacket that offers sufficient freedom of movement can also be worn for riding. It should not ride up and expose the back. It should also be resistant to dirt and should be able to withstand a lot.
Nevertheless, the purchase of a riding jacket can make sense. Riding jackets and coats are windproof, breathable and at least water-repellent, in the best case even waterproof. Beyond these properties, riding jackets have some advantages over everyday jackets. Riding jackets usually have various adjustment options that offer an optimal fit for the seat in the saddle. This is helped by a riding slit at the back, which prevents the jacket hem from bumping up against the saddle rim.
Treats, mobile phone, keys - riders have many small things to stow away. Many practical pockets keep these things close at hand at all times, as the pockets are conveniently placed. Unlike most normal jackets, riding jackets have a two-way front zip, which makes the jacket easier to adjust to the angled legs in the saddle. With the right riding clothes, there is no such thing as bad weather for riders. In our shop you will find the right summer and transitional jackets, soft shell jackets, riding coats and parkas as well as winter riding jackets for the really cold temperatures. We equip you for your hobby in every season.
When is a riding jacket suitable, and when is a riding coat?
A riding jacket is suitable for riders who are either not that cold or when the outside temperatures are not too cold. A riding coat, on the other hand, is long-cut, reaches partly to the knees or beyond and keeps the thighs dry and warm. This makes a riding coat suitable for icy winters. A riding coat is also advantageous during warm-up riding or in the loosening phase, which is then taken off during intensive training. Underneath, either a light soft shell jacket or a long-sleeved shirt with a riding gilet can be worn so that you don't get cold during the training.
With our riding coats and riding jackets you are optimally protected from the neck to the riding boots: high, fluffy collars keep your sensitive neck area warm. Riding slits that can be opened or closed at will with the help of a zip or press studs. Our riding jackets and coats are breathable, waterproof and windproof. In addition, our riding coats have leg loops so that the coat does not shift on the horse and your legs stay warm and dry in any weather.
Why is it worth buying a riding coat?
A riding coat is a good investment for those who are out and about in the stable and on horseback even in the rain. Not only is a riding coat beneficial for horse trekking, but also for those who have to care for their horses in all kinds of weather.
You should buy a riding coat if you are prone to cold thighs. The good insulating layer of a riding coat provides excellent heat retention, prevents chilling and keeps the body warm at all times. The long-cut hems are connected with leg loops to keep your legs warm and dry all the way to your riding boots. For a good riding coat, a riding slit at the back and a two-way front zip are an absolute must.
The advantages of a riding coat become particularly clear in winter. If you ever forget your winter riding gloves, the fleece-lined pockets will protect your hands from the icy temperatures. Thanks to their fashionable and functional design, riding coats are indispensable for a pleasant and warm stay with the horse and in the stable during autumn and winter. Hats and scarves will complete your winter outfit.
