For the most part, there are two types of riders in the world: those who polish their tall boots even when riding at home alone, and those who occasionally let their old Garth Brooks tour t-shirt double as both pajamas and riding gear when they think no one is watching (we’ll let you guess into which category we fall). However, weather is the great equalizer, because when it’s ninety-five degrees and humid, there’s only one type of rider: a red-faced, sweaty one with soggy feet.
The scorching temps this week had us schvitzing through our Equiline breeches, cursing wide leather belts, and folding our Fabbri’s down while standing in front of the aisle fans. We’ve all been there, and we figured there had to be a better way. Thus, we took to the interwebs in search of some sporty riding garb that might not be entirely horse show or lesson appropriate, but is techier than a tour t-shirt for those casual, hack-at-home days when it’s pushing eighty-five at sunrise.
