|Where to Buy|
The good news is that riding attire is better than ever, so if you haven’t upgraded your show outfit in a while, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what’s available. Manufacturers are now treating equestrians like athletes and bringing new, technological fabrics into show attire. Approved safety helmets are becoming more and more widespread, and with that increased usage comes a wider variety of styles. With the current economic climate, the “bling” trend of recent years has toned down a bit, though western riders can still find plenty of decorative accents for their show shirts.
