Why the Equetech riding tights are your summer essential!

Long hot summer days are here and the Equetech Inspire Riding Tights should be at the top of your essentials list this Summer.   Riding tights have become very popular in the last couple of year with more and more riders choosing them.  Why? They tend to be thinner than jodhpurs and breeches meaning you get a much closer contact with the horse. Riding tights are also ‘pull-on’ in style and made from technical fabrics, so they are generally breathable, comfortable and offer good grip. The Equetech Inspire Riding Tights are made from technical stretch, a stretch pull-on riding tight with 4-way stretch and have excellent shape retention. Perfect for endurance, le trec, training and leisure activities. Th...

The History of Equestrian Underwear

Most horse riders don't really think about their foundation wear in detail. It's still a fairly taboo subject to talk about equestrian underwear for riders, and in most cases we just suffer in silence! This latest blog talks about how underwear has developed across the centuries and what horse riders can expect from equestrian underwear today!  The first simplest form of underwear was probably the loincloth, although Ameila Bloomer first created the ladies bloomers, in 1849. The body of Ötzi the Iceman, who died in the Tyrolean Alps more than 5,000 years ago, sported a loincloth, made from goat skin, under his furry leggings! The underwear served many purposes as well as used as additional layer t...

SHAPE UP WITH OUR FABULOUS SHAPER BREECHES!

We have all been there, bought a new pair of breeches only to find out they are made from a thin material, don't hold you together and worst still give you a VPL, not exactly the confidence giving wardrobe you need when you pull your breeches on to head to the yard. Equetech understand that you want to feel confident in your breeches, as riders ourselves we know not all of us have the luxury of that perfect figure, some of us wobble, some of us have muffin tops, and others of us just want a bit of help to feel our 'best'- it is exactly these reasons that inspired us to design our Shaper Breeches. These breeches are designed specifically to give you a flattering outline and to compliment your figure. With careful seam positio...

Set yourself up for success at shows!

Want to put your best foot forward this Show Season? We have a few tips to help you excel. 1. Have a plan. Plan your individual show carefully. Make use of corners and ride wide turns, keep a good rhythm and be careful not to push your horse or pony out of it's natural pace. 2. Don't underestimate the importance of the walk. The importance of the walk pace is often overlooked, show a natural free walk at the start and end of your show. Remember your individual show is your chance to shine! 3. Make sure your horse is well schooled and mannerly. It goes without saying that rideability is essential in the show ring and the better schooled your horse is, the more likely the judge is to enjoy riding him or her. Howev...
