5 Essential Winter Wardrobe Items From Equetech

It's getting chilly out there and with weather forecasters proclaiming it's going to be a cold winter with prolonged freezing temperatures and snow, here's Equetech's guide to staying warm whilst enjoying your horse and the outdoors.

Start with a good quality base layer such as the Equetech Arctic Thermal Under Breeches. These under breeches luxuriously wrap your legs in a plush cosy micro fleece lining. They feature a seam free seat, non-chaff leg trim and wide comfort waistband- just heavenly. Worn under jeans, trousers, breeches, leisure or work out wear, the stirrup foot ensures there is no uncomfortable or irritating "riding up." Unisex in design in sizes S/M 24"-30" waist and L/XL 30"-36" waist, these under breeches certainly help to keep legs warm and to keep those annoyingly itchy or painful chilblains away.

Equetech's Winter-Tech Riding Socks will also help to keep chilblains at bay whilst enveloping feet and toes in the finest merino™ wool. With added Coolmax™ for temperature control these incredibly comfortable socks feature breathable mesh ventilation panels, ankle and foot grips to minimise movement, a wonderfully cushioned sole and seamless toe. The perfect sock for outdoor pursuits, ensuring warm supported feet and no more rubbed toes.

For the ultimate in luxurious warmth and versatility in an outer garment then look no further than Equetech's Rowant Long Quilted Jacket. This lightweight, non-restrictive and beautifully tailored coat is made from a cruelty free super warm technical Bio-Down™ insulation. Featuring a detachable faux fur lined hood, zip pockets, two way zip to the front and a zip hem to the back (enabling you to ride in the jacket) has made the Rowant a firm favourite with international dressage riders and trainers. A jacket that will certainly keep out the elements all day allowing you to enjoy riding, yard duties, walking the dog and most outdoor pursuits. Its sophisticated style means you will also look fabulous whilst shopping and going out for dinner or lunch.

Equetech's Cable Knit Snood adds a touch of style and an essential extra layer of warmth, so no more hunching those shoulders against the biting cold and causing neck problems! This stylish deep, cosy cable loop scarf is ideal for all yard duties, riding and going out. Featured in four beautiful autumnal/winter colours; navy, mauve, mulberry and mocha for adults and a soft pink for juniors, team with the matching Cable Knit Headband for toasty ears!
