Sewing Equestrian Apparel

Dieses Bild zeigt eine Reiterin mit Reijackett aus dem Jahre 1953
This fashion drawing of a rider from 1953, made for the Rundschau, served as a model for the riding jacket on the sewing pattern sheet.

Modern equestrian clothes need to be more than comfortable, fitting and convenient. The fashionable equestrian values a sporty-chic appearance for both herself and her horse. Whether in the arena or while training, the outfi t has to be on point. The olympic equestrian disciplines are dressage, showjumping and eventing. In addition, there is western riding and recreational riding.

Inspiration Runway: Designers are inspired by breeches and riding jackets. Here are the interpretations by Moschino, Miu MIu und Sweet Matitos.

What Equetrian Apparel is there?

Tournament Jacket

The jacket is usually black,    other colors in dark blue and anthracite are also accepted to some extend. Ideal is a length reaching down to the end of the saddle. The jacket features two vents in the back to accommodate the width riding saddle. The collar may be made of velvet. The look is classic.

Breeches

The most important criteria is a good fit, no wrinkles at knees and crotch area so the breeches do not rub. Tournament breeches should be white, beige breeches are only tolerated in the lower tournament classes. One differentiates between breeches and a jodhpurse. For tournaments only breeches are accepted and required. Breathable functional fabrics, microfibre and cotton blends suit best.

Tournament Blouse / Tournament Shirt

Important feature for this model is the stand-up collar. As in fabrics used, functional jersey or cotton blends are prefered.

Riding Helmet

The riding helmet is an indispensable utensil in equitation. Important here is a three- or four-point attachment. In some tournaments top hats are the required headgear.

Accessories

These accessories complete the tournament outfit: tie / ascot, hair accessories / hair net and riding gloves.

A free pattern instruction for the Rider-Plastron can be found in our Download Schlips & Co.

Tournament Clothing for Jumping

The tournament jacket is a bit shorter for show jumping than for dressage. The tournament clothes can sometimes a bit more “colorful”, e. g. red jackets or other colors are permitted.

Recreational Riding Attire

For training and pleasure more and more attention is paid on functional fabrics and garment cut. The clothes need to be comfortable, functional and semi fitted.

Western Riding

The attire for Western riding is completely different. As show apparel considered are Cowboy boots, hat, jeans and a blouses with appropriate style elements. Also available are riding jeans.
