A sports bra is an obvious choice for horse riding, but riding underwear is also worth considering. The wrong underwear can fast become uncomfortable, especially during longer rides or intensive training. This is why you will find a wide selection of riding underwear at Horze.
In addition to different cuts and fabrics, designed specifically for riding, you'll find a choice of riding underwear for every season. Special thermal riding underwear keeps you warm in the winter, and can be combined with thermal leggings under your riding clothes. Long-sleeved thermal riding tops provide additional warmth when worn under your riding clothes.
Riding underwear is breathable, moisture-wicking, and specifically designed to prevent chafing. As the layer of clothing that directly touches your skin, it can have a serious effect on your comfort levels while riding.
Equestrian underwear should fit well and not interfere with the rider's movement. Women's riding underwear includes a sports bra, matching pants and riding socks. As horse riding is a physical activity, riding underwear should definitely be made of breathable material. Material blends with elastane offer greater wearing comfort because the underwear then adapts perfectly to your movements. Well-fitting, seamless pants prevent chafing, rubbing and abrasions even during prolonged riding. Padded panties are particularly comfortable and offer protection. Thanks to a clever cut and appropriate seams, the padding is discreet even when worn under tight-fitting breeches.
The right riding underwear can make winter riding much more comfortable. Long johns, with or without an added long-sleeved thermal top add a much needed layer of warmth. This thermal underwear is either made from a blend of polyester with elastane, or bamboo fibres plus elastane. The bamboo version is clearly more environmentally friendly. Bamboo fibres are also very comfortable to wear. They are soft, breathable and antibacterial. You can also get riding socks made of this material. The synthetic fibre blend is often enriched with silver ions. This also makes the fabric surface of this blend antibacterial. However, silver ions are not right for everyone. You can wash this type of riding underwear in a washing machine. However, you should not use fabric softener. Most styles are also unsuitable for tumble drying. This only applies to a limited extent to riding underwear made with merino wool.
