When you’re attending an equestrian event whether as a rider or a spectator, you’ll notice that there is a certain style worn by people in the event. If it’s still your first time attending these events, you might be looking for tips on how to dress appropriately for an equestrian event. Here are some of the basic equestrian fashion tips that would surely make you look perfect on your next equestrian event.

Consider the Weather

First of all, you need to consider the weather when choosing an outfit for an equestrian event. It is basically an outdoor event and could extend for long periods of time so you really need to take the weather into consideration for comfort all day long. Choose the right clothing pieces that suit the weather for the day – whether it is rainy, sunny, windy, or else. Your fashion should go together with the current weather condition so you’ll feel great and comfortable all throughout the day.

Fashion for Riders

If you’re attending the equestrian event as a rider, your attire would be a lot different from the audience. This is due to the certain clothing considerations you need to make to stay comfortable and safe while riding a horse. Basically, a horseback rider needs to wear a helmet for safety in case a fall or accident happens. For the top, you could wear comfy shirts with good sun coverage to protect your skin especially when riding on a sunny day.

There are plenty of colors and prints to choose from so you could actually show off your equestrian style with your shirt. Breeches are the trousers worn by horse riders but you could still wear any other trousers as long as these are long-legged and made from thick and durable fabric. Lastly, wear the right footwear to protect your feet. Leather equestrian boots are the most recommended for horse riders since it gives you the right grip you need and keeps your feet protected during the ride.

Fashion for Spectators

If you’re attending the equestrian event as a spectator, there is not much restrictions in the clothes you can wear. You could wear any fashion that suits your preference as long as it is comfortable for long time wear. However, since it is an outdoor event, you need to wear some protective clothing to keep you protected from the sun’s UV rays as well as make your overall experience comfortable while watching the event.

Hats and glasses are a basic accessory for those who are attending an equestrian event. Aside from protecting you from the sun, it also helps you watch the event conveniently without having to squint your eyes for a long time. You could choose from plenty of stylish ones such as these Akubra hats that look great with any outfit.

Aside from that, it is also best to wear comfortable footwear since you’ll be doing a lot of walking and standing outdoors for prolonged periods. Flat shoes such as trainers and tennis shoes look great and feel comfortable as well for these events.

With all those style tips, you can surely attend an equestrian event in style whether you’re a spectator or a rider.
