Let’s face it, at some point every rider needs grip. Whether it’s holding your reins when they’re wet and slick, sitting deep in the saddle in a trot, sailing over an oxer, or galloping down the trail, extra stick will make your ride easier and more comfortable. The right level of grip is a perfect blend of comfort, tack and flexibility.
But not all grips are created equal, and there are a variety of needs for riders in their respective disciplines. So Kerrits went to their Team Riders and Ambassadors to research what they need most and to get their feedback. Many of these women spend more waking hours in the saddle every day than they do on the ground. When clothing can stand up to the rigors of their intense riding, you can rest assured it’s been performance-tested and rider-approved.
Whatever your discipline, whatever your needs, Kerrits understands the connection between the rider and the horse is an important one. Check out the variety of Kerrits’ tights and breeches and pick your grip.
