Editor's note: We are running our popular series on winter clothing (and potentially gifts) for the horse person in your life--or perhaps for you to buy for yourself! In this article we look at coats and pants designed with the equestrian in mind.
There's not much you can do about the weather—whether it be frightful or delightful. And in the case of those frightful winters, having the right clothing can make or break your and your clients' winter experience at the barn. There are heaps of new coats and pants designed with riders in mind. This year sees lots of fleece, waterproof materials and styles you're not ashamed of leaving the farm while wearing.
