Equestrian Wear

Gift Idea's For Equestrian Wear Items

Each equestrian sport is unique and demands different skills from the horse rider so their clothing is not just used for presentation but also to help them move easily during competitions. In order for a horses rider to be protected well, there are a lot of types of clothing that need to be worn. The main dress of an equestrian are composed of horse riding headgear, jackets, boots, jodhpurs and breeches, body safe-guard, chaps and gaiters. For a novice it is important to know each of this apparel. Each individual's favorite might vary but it is necessary to be have knowledge about the fundamental principles before acquiring any clothes since horse back riding can be costly and the clothes for this action is no exception.

Horses can be trained, but situations are unpredictable, whether in competition or horseback riding for pleasure - so the equestrians hat is the most important dress as it safeguards the rider from falls. The hat, with its hard shell and shock absorbing lining, provides protection for the rider in case of a fall. When you're not riding, it is still necessary to wear them, since the horse may kick when you are on the ground.

If the rider falls, the [hat] can become damaged and less effective in future uses so you should be sure to buy a new one. The protection also decreases over time as the padding compresses from daily use so horseback riding hats should be replaced ever three to four years. Three basic headgear are available for the riders with the first one being the classic horseback riding hat which is a traditional velvet hat available brown, black, or navy with a hard peak.

You will also run across the skull cap with is a equestrian helmet that does not have a peak and can be seen worn by a number of jockeys. It's now popular with other horse riders for leisure or contest and silks which are peak covers can be placed over the skull cap giving the appearance of a horse riding hat. There are also novelty silks ideal for young ones with eyes and ears sewn on them for example. Similar to a cycling horse riding helmet is the skull protector, it is ventilated and lightweight, making those warm summer day rides a lot more comfortable.

Riding hats have chin straps and should conform to the horse riding hat safety standards and the United Kingdom for example, has 3 safety standards. Riding headgear should follow one of these standards for optimum safety of the horse rider so the chin straps should be able to secure the hat safely and securely on the riders head. Riders should always remember to secure their headgear with beginners purchasing one which is comfortable for them. Riding hats are critical pieces of equestrian clothing that safeguard the rider by reducing the risk of severe injury during potentially fatal falls. To ensure safety, invariably buy a new horseback riding hat because a used one may look fine on the outside but suffered some hidden damage that reduces its capability to safe-guard.
