Riding Gilet, Riding Coat or Riding Jacket - Everything for Your Ride
As a rider you are exposed to types of weather the whole year round. With the appropriate clothing your hobby can be fun in every season. When you have the correct riding clothes there is no such thing as bad weather. A rider's standard equipment for the stables and daily schooling with the horse includes riding jackets, riding gilets and riding coats. Regardless of whether you wear them as the first layer over light shirts and blouses, or together with a comfy sweat jacket or a toasty jumper in the winter, riding jackets and riding gilets offer reliable protection against the wind and weather all year round and allow you to dress both practically and fashionably when you are riding. A great advantage of riding jackets and riding gilets from Kramer Equestrian is that they are not great for riding, but they are also perfect for everyday use or other leisure activities such as hiking or other outdoor activities.
The Perfect Summer Riding Jacket
The stables are like a second home for a horse owner. The horse must be looked after and exercised regardless of the weather. It is good to have the right riding clothes for every type of weather ready at hand. Our riding jackets, riding gilets and riding coats are specially geared towards your requirements when you are riding. Lightweight summer riding jackets are ideal for summer and the mild in-between seasons. Fleece jackets, which are comfortably warm and at the same time breathable are also very popular. Fleece jackets usually have a high collar to provide extra protection against unpleasant winds and also have practical zip pockets for treats. Anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors, for example in the school or going for frequent hacks with their horse, should think about buying a soft shell jacket. This functional material is ideal for riding because it is very light, as well as wind-resistant and breathable. Even in summer you are not spared from the occasional rain shower. If you as a rider are surprised by rain when you are out on a hack, it is always a good thing to have a light, waterproof summer jacket with you, which you can quickly slip into.
Riding Gilets - the All-Rounder for Fashion Conscious Riders
You are always prepared when wearing a riding gilet. Whether for a schooling session on a cool summer morning, for hacking out on fresh spring or autumn days or for stable work in winter - with a riding gilet as an extra layer you are always well-dressed. The advantage of a riding gilet is that you can take it off fast if it gets too warm. So you can react to sudden changes of temperature even when you are riding and you won't break into a sweat. For the warmer seasons a riding gilet made from thin material is ideal, while a warmly lined ladies' gilet is the perfect addition to your winter riding apparel when you are riding in the indoor school in the winter. If you also colour-coordinate your riding gilet with your jodhpurs or your top, the result is a trendy outfit for the stables.
Stay Warm on all Your Winter Rides with a Riding Jacket and a Riding Coat
It is bitterly cold; a nasty wind is blowing through the stable yard and snow or sleet make certain that you hardly dare to go outside. Winter is the time for soft, cosy riding jackets and riding coats. They should be warmly lined and wind-resistant and ideally riding jackets and riding coats should also be water-resistant, to stop you getting wet in cold, wet weather. If you opt for a water-resistant style, you should not forget to impregnate the winter riding jacket or the riding coat regularly to ensure that it maintains its water-resistant properties. It is very important that, despite their thick linings, winter jackets and coats always allow you freedom of movement when you are riding. Jackets that are cut longer, as well as riding parkas and riding coats, generally have slits at the back to let you sit perfectly in the saddle in the winter. To protect your head and neck from icy temperatures, other winter accessories such as scarves and hats are the perfect complement to your winter jacket. An extra visual highlight are winter riding gloves to match your riding jacket or riding gilet, which are ideal for riding lessons in the cold school and also keep your hands nice and warm when working in the stable.
