5 Fall Apparel Favorites for Horseback Riders
Fall is a beautiful time of year for long rides surrounded by breathtaking foliage. Unfortunately, Fall weather can be unpredictable and changes quickly, especially if you live in a higher elevation. Having the right apparel to keep you warm and dry will allow you to enjoy your Fall ride, regardless of what weather you encounter.
Here are our top 5 favorite riding apparel to wear in the Fall to keep you warm and comfortable.
When shopping for a Fall jacket you should look for waterproof and windproof fabrics. These will offer you more protection as the weather changes. Keep in mind some wind and waterproof jackets can make a lot of noise. If your horse is sensitive to this noise, seek out a quieter material.
The HKM Allure Rain Jacket is one of our favorites for Fall because it combines waterproof and windproof features with a breathable fabric. This jacket gives you protection from wind and rain, with the freedom of movement you need in the saddle.
As you transition from Summer to Fall gear, look for thicker riding pants to provide more warmth. If you are anticipating riding in a lot of rain, there are several waterproof riding pants available. If not, pick riding pants for warmth and comfort.
While breeches are certainly not a Fall specific item of clothing, it is hard to resist the beautiful Fall colors that Romfh Sarafina breeches come in. These mid-rise breeches are super comfortable and have a very flattering contoured waistband. The vertical stretch suede is the softest, most comfortable material available on the market.
One of the hardest parts of Fall riding is cold hands and feet. Switching out your light summer riding gloves for a slightly warmer, wind-resistant glove can make a big difference. Look for gloves that offer warmth, flexibility, and provide a good grip. The HKM Winter Riding Gloves will keep your hands warm with a fleece lining, but are also flexible for a comfortable ride.
