Kerrits Guide to Sun Protection While Riding
Have more fun in the sun with shirts, tights and accessories that offer full coverage and built-in UPF protection.
Tips for sun protection for long days at the barn or horse show
- Choose clothing that provides more coverage, such as shirts with high necks and long sleeves. Wide-brim hats and helmets help shade your eyes and face, and our convertible headband expands into a buff for extra coverage, too!
- Look for clothing with a UPF rating. UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor, and a higher UPF means greater protection from harmful rays.
- Remember to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen to areas that are still exposed, like your hands, neck and face.
- Take breaks in the shade of trees, in a covered arena or inside the barn, especially from 10 am–4 pm, when the sun is most intense.
