Waterproof Riding Skirt
New in is this fabulous waterproof riding skirt in a choice of outer and binding colours and also lining weights.
The skirt is designed to keep you both dry and warm whatever the time of year thanks to all the lining options.
You wrap the skirt around you (typically under your coat or jacket, not over as in the photos - the science has changed since this photo was taken) and fasten the elasticated waistband at the front with a velcro tab about 6" long (allowing for additional adjustability). There are two elasticated straps with press studs on each panel of the skirt to prevent it blowing up and startling your horse (and letting nasty cold air in when you're so warm and toasty once you've got it on).
There is another velcro fastening on the skirt at the back behind the saddle in case you need more room mounting and dismounting or extra help removing the skirt once onboard.
The skirt covers the whole of your precious saddle keeping it dry and protected and sits beautifully on top of Eqco quarter sheets.
Let us know your height and waist size (without layers on top) and we will make a riding skirt to fit you. Measurements are as per the chart below:
|UK Size||Waist (inches)||Waist (cm)|
|6||up to 26||up to 66|
|8||26 1/4-27||66-68 1/2|
The lining options are as follows:
- Mesh (does what it says on the tin)
- Lightweight: a thin polycotton similar in weight to a summer shirt fabric
- Ruggoo: similar weight to fleece but a superior product (not least because I have it woven here in the UK especially for me) thanks to its durability, speedy drying and warmth
- Doesitall: yes this is a horse rug fabric but why shouldn't us humans enjoy it too? As an aside - did you know that we can make granny blankets or horsebox rugs for humans to match their horses' dresses? This is the most snug of all the linings and is very warm when coupled with the waterproof outer layer so, unless you're somebody who really feels the cold, I'd be saving this one for those handful of days we get in January and February when it's super bitter outside.
You now have the option to add 50mm reflective strips (two of them) to each panel of the skirt. These will be sewn on horizontally to cover the ‘corner’ at the back of the skirt on each side.
