Classic navy or black show jackets with smart buttons and a flattering, tapered cut will compliment any figure. Choose three- or four-button fronts with the signature Z logo to complete your presentation and keep you looking your best as you enter the arena. The tapered style of these fine dressage coats adapts as you ride, for ultimate comfort and freedom of movement in the saddle. A velvet collar or trimmed pocket adds sophisticated detail to some Horze show jackets. Catch the judge’s eye during your next dressage test with a lovely riding jacket. For upper level dressage rides, choose our classic shadbelly style.
Comfort and breathability is essential when showing in warm weather, and Horze show jackets are designed to allow plenty of airflow while maintaining a classic style. The showerproof fabric will allow you to look great even when riding in drizzle, and the fabric will not absorb the rain. Double or single back vents allow freedom of movement and the fabric will stretch as you ride to avoid binding. The sporty yet classic style of our show jackets will help get you noticed as you perform a perfect extended trot.
In the past, a riding jacket was always black or red for show jumpers. Today you have more colour options when it comes to show jackets. For dressage competitions, a classic black ladies' competition jacket is still recommended. Dressage judges are very conservative. A show jacket that is too "fashionable" can easily cost you important points. At show jumping competitions, however, you can wear a blue show jacket without any problems. Red, green or grey are also acceptable. A softshell show jacket is also only recommended for show jumping or military competitions. The ladies' show jacket is cropped and has a slit at the lower back. This serves to prevent the jacket from clinging to the saddle. A competition jacket is figure-hugging and has tight, long sleeves. Of course, it must fit in such a way that it does not hinder the rider's movement.
