One thing that every horse owner, rider and groom knows is that you have to get used to being out in all weathers… and that means your equestrian clothing needs to be up to the task. From those subzero days when you need to break the ice on troughs to scorching summer days horse lovers are outside and braving the elements regardless. The key to comfort in the saddle is the layers you wear close to your skin and then layer up, and our bamboo riding clothing is perfect. Available as cosy roll necks, long sleeved tops and sleeveless polo shirts, we use different weights of stretchy, comfortable bamboo fabric blends to provide riders with supremely comfortable layers as the seasons go by.
We chose bamboo fabric for our equestrian clothing because it’s got amazing benefits for riders – it’s moisture wicking, breathable, helps to regulate your skin temperature and is even antibacterial too! Plus, bamboo fabric is incredibly silky and soft, so you’ll love having it next to your skin whether you’re on a long hack, having a busy day at the yard or being put through your paces during a riding lesson. Bamboo is also sustainable, so it’s perfect for those looking for green equestrian clothing.
Ginger & Jardine riding tops not only have those fantastic benefits for the wearer and are good for the environment – but they also look the part too. Our iconic Tattersall check roll necks are so smart paired with a gilet or your favourite riding coat – or as a standalone layer! We’ve also added plain colours to the range of polo necks for those who prefer them, and you’ll find both neural and bright colours in our long-sleeved t-shirt collection. Our lightweight short-sleeved polo shirts are perfect for summer riding and will keep you cool in the saddle or when you’re doing yard chores.
We’ve also included both a cosy long-sleeved winter stock shirt and a lightweight short-sleeved summer stock shirt in the Ginger & Jardine equestrian collection. Both are made from clever bamboo fabric, so they’re breathable and keep you at just the right temperature, but the winter one is obviously a heavier knit fabric, so it’s lovely and warm (and there’s a men’s version of the winter stock shirt!). The long-sleeved winter stock shirt has cuffs with no buttons which are very helpful when your fingers are a little chilly. Both of our bamboo stock shirts are seriously easy to wear, with a button at the front of the neck and a loop at the back to secure your stock tie. They are a runaway success with our customers looking for clothes for hunting. There are lots of keen hunt followers who now rely on our winter stock shirts to keep them warm all day long in the field, no matter how low the temperatures go.
