From one of the top hunter/jumper circuits in the country to the Global Dressage Festival, the Winter Circuit in Florida is truly one of the best places to see Olympians and top equestrians doing what they do best. Among the gorgeous horses and star-studded entry lists, you have to be bold to make a splash.
A grand entrance starts with a great outfit, especially in Florida. We’ve put together three very different sets of English horse show clothes so you can rock up to the ring in style. Whether you want an outfit that’s flirty and fun, colorful, or elegant, there’s an outfit for everyone in this blog.
Flirty English Horse Show Clothes from The Spicy Girl Collection
Let’s be honest, your show clothes are one of the most important parts of your horse show supplies, especially if you’re going to wear a gorgeously bold outfit from Equine Couture. The Spicy Girl Collection was designed to bring high fashion’s lace fabric and peekaboo cutouts to the equestrian show ring.
This outfit combines a traditional breech, the Equine Couture Charlotte Suede Knee Patch Breech, with a wild show coat and show shirt. The Charlotte Knee Patch Breeches perfectly offset the Spicy Girl Cayenne Show Coat, thanks to their traditional Safari color and elegant suede knee patches.
The Spicy Girl Cayenne Show Coat will allow glimpses of these breeches to be seen through the lace fabric of the show coat. Yes, you read that right; this show coat is entirely made out of a nylon and spandex lace! Reinforced hems, lapels, and buttons ensure that you still have all the traditional details of a show coat, but with an innovative lace design.
Wear the Spicy Girl Cinnamon Show Shirt underneath the Cayenne Show Coat to really emphasize the lace pattern. The Cinnamon Show Shirt features lace mesh inserts on the midriff, underarms, collar bones, and shoulders. There are many different ways to style this English show shirt. For a more modest take, you can wear a skin tone or white tank top underneath the shirt, which will still display the lace details.
Finish off this English horse show outfit with a little bling. The Tipperary Windsor MIPS Wide Brim Show Helmet features a rose gold inset that is both elegant and eye-catching. Designed to take full advantage of the MIPS® Multi-Directional Impact Protection System and with a lightweight, high-density ABS shell that provides high impact resistance, this show helmet is as safe as it is stylish.
Ombre English Horse Show Clothes with the Gradient Collection
If you want to come across as more colorful than flirtatious, the Equine Couture Gradient Collection is for you. There’s nothing else like this collection of English horse show clothes on the market. The Gradient collection features unique stripes of collar placed strategically on the breeches, show shirt, and show coat. Available in three different color patterns, you can mix-and-match your English horse show clothes or take a matchy-matchy approach.
The Equine Couture Gradient Full Seat Breech is perfect for the Dressage Queen who wants to add a hint of color to her white breeches. The full seat is designed using innovative silicone grip technology for a secure hold in the saddle. A wide waistband is both comfortable and trendy, plus it’s ideal for showing off a beautiful belt. Ombre stripes adorn both the pockets and back belt loop.
On top, rock up to the ring wearing the Gradient Short Sleeve Show Shirt. With short sleeves that are ideal for the Florida heat, this shirt has a convenient ¾ zip-up collar and a curved hemline to enhance your natural silhouette. The fabric is designed to be durable, while allowing for full freedom of movement. Available in sizes extra-small through extra-extra-extra large, this shirt is designed to fit most equestrians.
Finally, top off your English horse show clothes with the Equivent Gradient Show Coat. A new spin on the traditional Equivent Show Coat, this jacket features matching ombre stripes on the arms, just above the bicep. This show jacket is perfect for the show jumping ring or unrecognized events.
Comfortable & Traditional English Horse Show Clothes
Bold isn’t for everyone, especially as non-traditional colors and styles are still not widely accepted in most show rings. Equine Couture has continued to produce elegant English horse show clothes that stand out because of their high-quality make and subtle style.
Start with the Nicole Knee Patch Breech. Available in safari, these breeches are ideal for the hunter ring, where there are fewer rules, but more pressure from judges to conform. With a silicone knee patch and star detailing on the pockets, these breeches still have unique features that allow you to add just a touch of extra flair to the traditional show outfit.
Next, choose the Cara Long Sleeve Show Shirt for your top. With a snap-up, not zip-up, collar and a loop for a stock tie, this show shirt has all the bells and whistles of a traditional show shirt. However, it also features ventilated mesh panels under the arms, EquiCool technology for moisture wicking, and embedded UV protection, making this shirt perfect for the Florida heat.
Finish off your English horse show outfit with a traditional navy blue show coat. The Equine Couture Equivent Lite Show Coat hides a secret– it’s constructed from hardly noticeable mesh fabric to help you stay cool, no matter the weather. A curved hemline, princess stitching, and notched lapels give this coat all the style you’d expect in a traditional show jacket, but with innovative technology for ultimate comfort.
Whether you want to stand out or blend in, Equine Couture has English horse show clothes for everyone. On Breeches.com, we don’t just sell horse show supplies. We use our in-house brands to innovate new technology and new styles for equestrians from all disciplines.
