You’ve made it through winter breaking ice from water buckets. You’ve made it through spring trudging through mud and treating thrush. Rejoice because you’ve made it to sweet, sweet summertime! Finding the right summer riding clothes to give you enough protection from the sun and keep you comfortable in the saddle all while keeping you cool can seem like a daunting task. Don’t fear! We’re here to help and give you some tips on what to wear horseback riding when the heat is on.
Let’s start with summer riding shirts. In our opinion, one of the most important things you need to keep in mind when selecting summer riding gear is UPF protection. Whether you’re wearing long sleeves, short sleeves, or tank tops, many apparel manufacturers have options for riding clothes withUPF protection. I know, I know, wearing long sleeves in the summer seems like a crazy plan, but the technical fabrics and materials available today are super lightweight and cool making the long sleeve style with UPF protection a perfect choice for riding in hot summer weather.
If you just can’t do the long sleeve thing, then put on your short sleeve shirt or tank top with UPF protection and lather on the sunscreen where the shirt doesn’t cover your skin. OurKerrits Ice Fil® shirtscome in long sleeve, short sleeve, and tanks in a variety of colors, both solids and prints, to suit every style.
If bugs are an issue where you live and/or if you find yourself hitting the trails at that perfect time of day when the mosquitoes and gnats love to feast, then look for a shirt that has a taller collar to provide more protection from the critters. Our KerritsTriple Chill Sun Shirtis perfect for this task and can easily convert from long sleeves to short sleeves depending on your preference.
