Hello, fellow equine enthusiasts! As the first frost has arrived and snowflakes begin to fall, it’s time to saddle up and get ready for winter rides. But, brrrr! It can get chilly out there. Fear not! This blog post is all about keeping you warm and stylish while you're out galloping in a winter wonderland. Here’s a guide to essential winter riding apparel that will keep you feeling as cozy as if you were sipping hot cocoa by the fireplace.
1. Thermal Riding Leggings or Breeches:
Gone are the days when you'd try to fit your regular breeches over five layers of tights and leggings. Nowadays, there are thermal riding breeches designed specifically for winter. With fleece lining and water-resistant materials, these are a lifesaver when you're trotting through snow.

Let’s face it – cold toes can ruin any fun outing. Insulated riding boots are a game changer. Whether you prefer tall boots or paddock boots, our Petrie Riding Boots can be made with sheepskin interior lining to keep you warm this winter!
3. Layered Tops & Base Layers:
Layering is the key to winter warmth. Start with a moisture-wicking base layer to keep sweat at bay. Add a fleece or thermal mid-layer, and finish with a windproof and water-resistant jacket.

Riding in winter can be an enchanting experience. Watching your horse's breath fog up in the crisp air, hearing the crunch of snow beneath hooves, and enjoying the serene beauty of a snow-covered landscape. With the right winter riding apparel, you can ensure that you're warm, comfortable, and safe, making your winter rides truly magical.
Happy winter riding, everyone! Stay warm and ride on! 🐴❄️🧣🧤🧥🌨️
