How to Dress Warmly for Horse Riding

Ever been freezing cold, wet and miserable while riding? Well you're in the right place for a solution. Here are a few good tips to dress warmly for horse riding:


  1. First of all, put on a thermal t-shirt or long sleeve top(sometimes called a skin). These are very handy, but are optional, as they can be expensive. If you do not have a skin, just wear a tight t-shirt as your first layer.Dress%20Warmly%20for%20Horse%20Riding%20Step%201.jpg
  2. Next, put on 1 or 2 sleeve tops. This will enclose the heat in your first layer, making sure that no hot air from you escapes.It doesn't have to be a particularly tight, clean, expensive or thermal one, just one that fits and isn't too small.Dress%20Warmly%20for%20Horse%20Riding%20Step%202.jpg
  3. Then put on 2 or 3 hoodies or jumpers. These will enclose more heat, are really cosy and they are fashionable. You can get a fairly high quality one for not a lot of money.Dress%20Warmly%20for%20Horse%20Riding%20Step%203.jpg
