Dublin, Ireland May 30, 2013 — Tredstep Ireland is proud to introduce three new shirt styles, which comprise The Symphony Futura Shirt Collection for equestrians. The beautifully tailored collection includes shirts for both competition and for schooling, and incorporates the best high performance sport fabrics available today to keep riders cool, dry and comfortable. Designed for high performance and styled to compliment the equestrian athlete, the exquisitely detailed shirts are a beautiful accompaniment to Tredstep’s recently released Symphony Breech Collection.
Equestrian sports require a cool countenance and comfortable riding attire that fits well and performs great is a must. Top international lady Event riders including Aoife Clark and Sarah Ennis from Ireland, British eventer Lauren Shannon and Caroline Powell from New Zealand recently put the Symphony collection to the test, wearing the breeches and shirts while competing the Land Rover Badminton Horse Trials in England. The riders raved about the clothing, especially the streamlined fit and soft, silky fabrics that performed beautifully during the rigorous competition. American eventer Kristin Schmolze wore breeches and shirts from the collection at the 2013 Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event in April, looking polished and smart as she helped Ballylaffin Bracken shine in his four star debut.
The Symphony Futura Competition Shirt is made from Tredstep’s exclusive AirSilk four-way stretch fabric that converts perspiration to cooling energy, allowing the rider to perform in comfort and with total confidence. To help riders look their best in competition, the shirt is beautifully detailed with a crisp woven collar and subtle, hidden snap closures, flattering seams and ribbed side panels. A soft silk feel against the rider’s skin allows for perfect performance and style in or out of the ring. The collection is available from select U.S. retailers in white and blue in long sleeve, and white in short sleeve. (MSRP long sleeve $74.99, short sleeve $64.99)
For riders who want an everyday riding shirt, Tredstep has introduced the Symphony Futura in an athletic, Sport Top style. Made with the same Tredstep AirSilk four-way stretch fabric that converts perspiration to cooling energy, and featuring the soft as silk feel against the rider’s skin, the Furura Sport Top is perfect for schooling and for riders who prefer to wear a smooth fitting sport top under their protective vests in the Cross Country phase. The Symphony Furura Sport Top is available in white or navy. (MSRP $64.99)
And just in time for summer Tredstep has introduced the new stylishly tailored and subtly detailed high performance Polo shirt. Unlike traditional cotton polo shirts, the Tredstep Polo is made from stretch cotton in a pique weave that incorporates advanced moisture transfer and anti-microbial technology, ensuring that a rider’s skin feels fresh and comfortable all day. The Tredstep Polo is available in an array of traditional colors including black, pink, classic blue or gray with a fun strip of contrasting color inside the button placket and underneath the collar. (MSRP $49.99)
In 1993, Irish entrepreneur and Three-Day Event rider Aidan Keogh saw the need for a better half chap, and set out to create his own. A former design student who studied fine arts, Keogh believed that he could improve the comfort and performance of riding wear, while respecting the traditions of a Centuries-old sport. His product eventually redefined the market and brought half-chaps to the mainstream where they are now standard equipment for every rider. Along the way he created Tredstep Ireland, a company driving innovation, but ever respectful of the traditional roots of equestrian sport. The company now offers a complete collection of clothing, boots, chaps and accessories including the newly released Symphony Collection of high performance breeches and the popular Renaissance Collection of boots, all designed to make the riding experience more enjoyable.
