May Men's Special

There remains a strong gender bias, with females representing 74% of the riding population, so it's no wonder a majority of equestrian clothing brands target the female population with stylish male apparel being under-represented. As one of the UK's leading equestrian brands, Equetech strives to redress the balance. Managing Director and Head Designer, Liz Hayman has designed a range of not only practical and hard wearing casual riding wear, but a range that also delivers on smart competition and hunting wear for the all too forgotten about male rider. The Men's competition jacket range consists of the shower proof finish tweed riding jacket with the bespoke dressage coat and the custom Stirling riding jacket created with cus...

Upgrade Your Look on a budget- Accessories to Liven up Your Existing Equestrian Outfit.

It's common place to believe that to enhance our equestrian wardrobe we have spend lots of money. Well, thankfully this doesn't have to be so. All we really need to do is make minor adjustments to our existing wardrobe by adding on-trend accessories. A statement belt can make all the difference not only to your competition outfit but to your training and non-riding outfits. For a classic look whilst competing, choose a belt that tones or matches with the main block colour of your jacket and one with an interesting buckle design. If competition rules allow and you have a penchant for standing out from the crowd, pick out the colour of the piping/lining/collar/pocket flaps of your jacket and add a belt in that colour. For a Tweed j...

Reggie's Grand Day Out

It was a weekend of excess leg hair removal for Reggie, not Reggie's owner and Equetech MD Liz, washing and tidying of the giant 3 year olds magnificent gingerness and just general pre show day sprucing ‐ I'm sure we spend more time beautifying our horses than ourselves! His royal gingerness went from a slightly scruffy, "why can't I be a huge field ornament," to a resplendent vision befitting his incredible breeding which can be traced back to the 1600s. So, show day dawns with an early wake up call for Reggie who has a bemused yet disgruntled "I'm not a morning person" and "what is all the fuss about" look written all over his face. He decides he won't be the most compliant 3 year old t...
