Our long awaited hot summer days are on their way. Are you ready to ride in style?
The best horse riding shirts for summer are cool to wear, made of quick dry material and offer UV protective fabric. Here's a quick checklist for equestrian shirts in summer.
Hot picks for summer horse riding tops
1. Short sleeved show tops & lace panels
Nothing better than a cool and pretty top under a show jacket at summer horse shows. Our show shirts feature elegant detail at the neck so you don't need to add a stock to look perfectly turned out. The lace shoulder panels in the Milana show shirts allow ventilation and cooling breezes too. And if the judge allows jackets off, all the better, as your beautiful show shirt will have you looking classy and cool in the ring.
2. Lightweight fabrics in lovely colours
Our summer short sleeved tops and sleeveless tank tops are made with buttery soft lighter weight fabric for cool quick dry tops that allow cooling breezes while protecting you from the sun's UV rays. Do apply sunblock where skin is exposed.
3. Zip details
Our gold or silver zips add a touch of style to your horse riding outfit, and allow you to unzip the neckline for extra ventilation.
4. Baselayers for full sun cover
If you want to ride in the heat of the day or full sunshine, a baselayer is a great option with the extra sun protection of long sleeves. You'll get an inspirational message on your top and selected styles have gold zips also.
5. Cool cotton polos
Nothing says classic equestrian like a fresh white polo top and the waffle weave cotton fabric will keep you cool and fresh too! Even the black Nero Polo is a cool and breezy horse riding option in summer.
6. Sleeveless for Training & Show
From a lesson with your favourite coach or training at home, a sleeveless top is the ultimate in summer cool. Our Gabriella Sleeveless is a popular choice for under show jackets too as it delivers on classic style while adding minimal fabric.
