Best Comfortable Summer Horseback Riding Wear

The most important step we can take is in knowing what to wear when horseback riding in the summer.  With cooling technologies and ventilation, equestrian brands have made tops, breeches, helmets, gloves, and other riding accessories more suitable for riding in extreme heat.


1. Tops It’s important to keep your chest, back, shoulders, and even arms covered not only in the case of a fall or accident but also to protect them from sunburns.

2. Breeches There isn’t as much variety in breeches as there is in tops when it comes to summer riding products.  The most important characteristics to think of in riding breeches for the summer are breathability, thickness, and resistance to water. 3. Helmets Helmet choice is equally important when it comes to staying cool in the summer heat.  Any helmet with ventilation will at least be helpful, so long as it meets safety standards.

4. Gloves Selecting a riding glove for summer can be just as important as selecting a top or breeches. And increasing ventilation to your hands can decrease the likelihood of blistering, rubs from sweat, and overall discomfort.
