Spring is almost here, and I don’t know about you, but we’re craving lighter fabrics, softer colors, and basically anything other than hefty wool sweaters and puffy coats when schooling or showing. To help you put together your spring style list, we’ve come up with a list of our own—top spring trends our clients are loving—and we think you will too.
When it comes to fit, function and style, For Horses breeches will rock your world. Imported from Italy, and perfect for any weather, simply put, these breeches flatter every rider that tries them on. Constructed of the most incredibly comfortable, lightweight fabric that will compliment every body type, the For Horses Emma and Remie breeches are perfect for any rider in any ring. Also check out the For Horses Elsa breech/Jody Jodphur for kids and Miky breech for men. Available in tan and the season’s hottest colors.
Don’t let the name fool you. While Skull Cashmere has made a name offering the most comfortable cashmere sweaters ever, spring brings different fabrics with the signature Skull image. Remix your look under saddle while staying warm in the Skull Bonnie sweater. Soft cotton, subtle and chic complete with a textured skull on the front. Throw it over an Essex show shirt paired with your favorite breeches for a look that will take you from street to stable. Available in X-Small/Small/Medium/Large. Check out all Skull Cashmere and 360 Cashmere.
Spring into a new pair of the hottest tall boots on the horse show circuit. Fabbri Pro Boots are handmade in Italy. The entire Fabbri boot is handcrafted, even the sole! From field to dress, semi custom to full custom, your imagination is your only limitation when deciding what your new look will be. Stock boots are available in a multitude of calf sizes and heights to meet each individual rider’s needs.
A newcomer for 2019 is Bloq UV. Staying cool in the saddle--the struggle is real, but not if you wear the correct fabric. A new best seller is Bloq UV. Keeping rider’s cool and dry with a look that differs from all other technical shirts on the market. Wait until you try this shirt on. The fit and style will blow you away. The beautiful spring colors of Bloq UV shirts paired with a Tailored Sportsman belt and breeches will give your wardrobe the spring awakening it deserves.
The innovation of mesh hunt coats was all the rage last year offering outstanding ventilation without losing any style points. RJ Classics has joined this trend with the Harmony Hunt Coat. Lightweight mesh fabric provides extreme comfort and breathability while the Italian jersey front panel adds an element of unique style. The best part of this hunt coat is that it comes regular, long, and short. The fit is perfect with a price point that will delight. Pair this with the RJ Classics Gulf breech, Roeckl gloves, and Samshield helmet.
It may be still be chilly outside, but adding a few key pieces to your Spring riding wardrobe will help keep you warm until the ice starts to melt. As always, contact Chagrin Saddlery with any question about any of these products. We are always happy to help!
