Brilliant summer riding outfits

summer outfits

Now that the weather is finally heating up, what should you wear to go riding?
When it’s hot and sunny, choose tops and breeches or jods made of breathable fabrics in light colours, which reflect sunlight. Pair them with summer riding gloves and paddock boots (with half chaps if your legs feel the rubbing and pinching). And remember: ventilated helmets are your friends. For cooler days, you may want to throw in a lightweight jacket.

The big sleeve debate

Sleeves are a matter of personal preference. If it’s really hot, you’ll generally be cooler with short sleeves but be mindful of where you hack. Sometimes, a breathable long-sleeved top may preserve your arms from annoying scratches (and bugs).

And whatever you wear, don’t forget to put sunscreen and insect repellent on exposed body parts.
