Men's Equestrian Clothing: Our Favorite Fall Outfit

You may have noticed a cool breeze blowing across your yard and Halloween decorations going up in homes all across the United States. It can only mean one thing– Autumn is here! For many equestrians, fall signals a time of preparation. We’re busy buying and repairing blankets and pulling out our favorite cool weather clothing and boots. But male equestrians face a unique problem: finding high-quality men’s equestrian clothing in most tack stores. That’s where we come in! We’ve put together a fall outfit that’s both practical and stylish, just for our male customers. 

Fall Weather Tips

Autumn is a tricky time of year when it comes to knowing what to wear. On a practical level, the weather can change dramatically throughout the day. When you wake up to a cold, crisp morning with a beautiful layer of fog on the ground, you may want to dress for a day in the 50s or 60s. However, if you do, you’ll regret it when the sun breaks through the fog by mid-morning and the temperatures rise to a warm 70 degrees. Luckily, there’s a science to dressing for fall that will have you wearing outfits that are both practical and fashionable. 

  1. Wear layers – Layers are key to fall fashion. As the day warms up, you can take off layers of men’s equestrian clothing and put them back on again as the sun goes down. 
  2. Don’t forego sun protection – Just because the weather is cooler doesn’t mean that you can’t get a sunburn! Whether you’re trail riding or working in the ring, prepare for some sun exposure. 
  3. Dark colors are in – Autumn is synonymous with moody neutral colors that match the changing weather and the fall foliage. When you’re getting dressed in the morning, reach for shades of charcoal gray, navy, rust red, and mocha brown. 

A Stylish, but Practical Outfit

Layers are a must for a practical outfit, as we just mentioned. But it’s difficult and impractical to layer on multiple men’s english riding breeches. To solve that issue, we suggest choosing a slightly thicker breech to wear that will keep you warm in the mornings, but is breathable so you don’t overheat in the middle of the day. The  TuffRider Claudio Knee Patch Breeches are the perfect mix. Not only is the Nylon and Spandex combination fabric soft and comfortable, it’s also stretchy, so you’ll have excellent freedom of movement. Durable, comfortable, and affordable, the contoured sock bottoms offer a seamless fit underneath boots.

On top of your men’s english riding breeches, wear a shirt that offers airflow, but also has long sleeves, like the  TuffRider Dennison Shirt.

Made from breathable and lightweight EquiCool-infused fabric, this shirt pulls double duty by providing coverage from the sun, while the button down collar looks at home both in the show arena and at your next lesson. Designed with contrast colors on the side and sleeves, this shirt gives a trendy look to a classic style.

Layer a vest on top of the sun shirt for a versatile middle layer that will be easy to add on and take off as the weather changes. A vest like the  Roper Softshell Vest is warm and cozy while also offering additional pockets for all the bailing twine and hoof picks you’ll inevitably pick up throughout the day.

When it comes to men’s equestrian clothing, there’s no such thing as being too prepared for a day in the stables. On extra chilly days, put on the  Roper Charcoal Softshell Combo Jacket for added warmth. 

Available in stylish charcoal gray with a black upper, this jacket is bonded with fleece to keep you warm. Featuring a stand up collar, front welt zippered pockets, and reflective zipper pulls, you’ll be prepared for whatever the day throws your way.

The Best Boots for Fall

When most people think of Autumn, they think of picturesque landscapes and beautiful fall leaves. For equestrians, we think of frisky horses and… mud. Lots of mud. The boots you choose to wear to the barn in the fall have to be durable enough to stand up to abuse, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish.

Finish off your men’s equestrian clothing outfit with the  TuffRider Lexington Tall Country Boots. These boots are right at home in the barn and in the bar.

Made with a water resistant leather and lining, these boots can be worn both in the pasture and in the saddle without taking the time to swap. A drawstring closure and elastic gussets keep shavings out of the boots and ensure a secure and comfortable fit, no matter what you’re doing.
