Choosing the Right Equestrian Fabric

Horse riding is not just an elegant sport of equestrian princesses such as empress Elisabeth of Bavaria, better known as “Sissi”. Riding is a very demanding activity that requires both talent and a good pair of breeches. Breeches must be perfectly fitted and made of functional fabrics to ensure optimal support, comfort and safety during the ride. In addition, riders need to be able to make quick movements when jumping or acrobatics while keeping their balance on the animal. For this reason, breathable and stretchy fabrics are used in equestrian clothing to provide freedom of movement and avoid friction with the saddle.

The global equestrian fabric market is growing due to increased disposable income in developing economies, which will lead to higher participation in equestrian sports. Moreover, rising demand for equestrian products among millennials will drive the growth of this market in the future. However, high price of equestrian clothes will restrain the growth of this market in the long run.

Equestrian fabric is a special type of textile that is used in equestrian clothes and accessories. These fabrics are normally padded at critical areas such as knees, chest and back to provide extra protection from bumps and bruises while riding horses. They are also abrasion-resistant to prevent injuries.

When it comes to equestrian fabrics, there are many different options available on the market. The most important consideration when choosing the right equestrian material is to look for a soft and comfortable fabric that is durable enough to last for years to come.

In addition, the choice of equestrian fabric should also be considered based on its elasticity, breathability and ability to regulate body temperature. For example, abrasion-resistant and breathable fabrics such as Revolutional Energy and Fantasia are the best choices for equestrian sportswear. Similarly, a thermally insulating fabric such as Vuelta is ideal for colder weather.

When it comes to equestrian fabrics, both Carvico and Jersey Lomellina offer a wide range of bold and energetic colours. Both these companies have a broad selection of functional textiles, from soft shell to artificial leather and silicone, so there is something to suit every taste and style. Since functional textiles have a specific care requirement, they must be cleaned according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
