A winter riding jacket must meet the highest standards. It must keep you warm, but at the same time it should not make you sweat. It must be well lined without restricting your freedom of movement, because it has to be suitable for being worn while riding. That's why Horze has put together a wide range of riding jackets to meet all your requirements.
For the transitional period between autumn and winter, you will find lightly lined down jackets, softshell riding jackets that also protect against rain. For the very fashion-conscious riders, Horze has colourful and stretchy jackets on offer. For riding in the darker months of the year, we recommend taking a look at our range of reflective riding jackets.
Among all the winter jackets you canfind fixed or detachable hoods, hoods with faux fur trim, and of course, longer jackets and coats that keep you warm below the waist. Functional finishing touches like drawstrings, thumbholes, special cuffs that prevent cold air from getting in, and stylish and efficient collars make our winter jackets extra protective.
Lined winter riding jackets keep you warm but are still chic
An important aspect of a winter riding jacket is of course the fashion aspect. After all, you don't want to look bad in the stable or in the saddle, even when it's cold outside. Bold outer materials, whether sparkling or smart, matt or shiny, can certainly make you stand out on grey winter days. Of course, winter riding jackets can be combined with many other riding outfits.
Finding the right jacket for riding in winter is relatively simple. There is a wide choices of styles available to suit every taste. A warm riding jacket should not hinder your movement. In addition to a warm lining, the winter riding jacket should be windproof, breathable and water-repellent. A hood that can be retracted into the collar or removed and is large enough to fit a riding helmet makes sense if you want to ride outside in winter. The winter riding jacket should have at least one inside pocket for your wallet or similar and one large, zipable outside pocket. Of course, more pockets are better, especially a dedicated mobile phone pocket, which is a common feature. Reflective elements on the jacket increase your safety when outdoors, so are handy when riding at night or in dark conditions.
