Best 5 Horse Riding Show Jackets Each Equestrian Should Check
The Show Jacket is most often the centre piece of every competitive equestrian’s outfit. Show Jackets have been worn for over a century, and their place in competitive riding today was derived from the attire military officers wore when on horseback. As the focal point of your look, your Show Jacket should look sophisticated and smart, with a flattering fit to your upper body. Below are our top 5 picks for Horse Riding Show Jackets which can be worn for all equestrian disciplines when competing.

We expect to see this jacket worn by a lot of high-profile riders over the course of the next competition season. They worked for over three years to create the best Show Jacket in the equestrian market, describing the rigorous trial and error of every fabric and fit as the reason the process took them so long.
Priced at an excellent £210, their jacket offers a tailored and flattering fit to all body shapes with a highly impressive four way stretch; meaning there is zero restrictions to movement for the rider. The jacket is also water resistant, making it perfect for all seasons and outdoor shows.
