10 Awesome Horse Riding Outfits Ideas
1. Moss green cable-knit jumper.
A classic look that’s also practical – it’ll keep you warm, won’t show too much dirt and will be highly durable.
The subtle colour is also perfect for trail riding.
2. A hardy rancher jacket.
These jackets are made to be highly durable. They’re tough and they have a knitted lining, perfect for long rides.
3. A red flannel shirt.
The all-time classic for horse riders, you can’t go wrong with a simple flannel shirt. They will last, they’ll keep you warm, they’ll make you look like you’ve been spending time in the barn.
4. Denim breeches.
If you want to keep a casual look, but find regular jeans uncomfortable, a set of denim breeches are perfect. The perfect balance between practicality and comfort.
5. A classic polo shirt.
Another absolute classic is a crisp polo shirt. They’re easy to find, they breathe well, and they come in any colour you could want.
6. A vintage vest.
A nice earth-tone riding vest can be an excellent decision, bringing a little bit of sophistication to your outfit.
7. The crisp white shirt.
This one is a bit of a risk – it’s extremely easy to get yourself dirty (but at least you know you’ve been working!).
A classic, elegant look.
8. A necktie.
For a little bit more extravagance, add a necktie to the mix. This adds a little bit of fun & class.
9. The jumper and jacket combo.
If you really need to keep warm, throw on a jumper and a jacket for a high-country look. Excellent.

Mare Protects Newborn Foal From Coyotes
The mare in the photo below is Bonnie, who lives in an animal shelter.
The tiny fawn is a newborn – her mother had given birth nearby and was struggling to fend off two coyotes, ready to take advantage of her post-natal weakness.
That’s when Bonnie intervened, protecting the newborn fawn until the deer managed to move the coyotes on.
It’s a heart-warming story – a mare that shows the same kind of compassion, heroism and courage that we usually forget is animals just as much as it is in humans. A beautiful thing to see.
