Let's Get Technical
Technical fabrics seem to be setting the trend in all walks of life this season. These equestrian brands at a touch of glamour to your stable apparel without compromising performance.
Its all about the base...
Paragon Equestrian are defining your look, the way you like to wear it, with their Luxe Technical Baselayer. Styled in a highly technical four-way stretch fabric which offers the ultimate in freedom of movement and temperature control on the move.
Lined with a beautifully soft lightweight fleece, the fabric has excellent moisture wicking properties, and a stretch mesh detail to the back and side inserts to allow for further airflow.
Created to bridge the gap between the coming season and your ‘go to’ piece you’ll wear coming into the autumn and all winter.
Featuring a crystal zip for added ‘bling’ and reflective strip at the base of the collar.
The Equetech Isabella Training Shirt is a new addition for Spring 2018 and also makes use of technical wicking fabric. The addition of a pretty stretch lace panel on the underside of the sleeves gives additional ventilation for warmer days in the saddle. Combining mesh with beauty, this is the ideal shirt for everyday training, schooling and even cross-country.
From yard to yoga...
The rise of the Riding Tight has many benefits, not least for those looking to go from yard to yoga (or visa versa). Comfortable and flexible and providing a duel role of active wear and leisure wear the vast array of riding tights are something to behold.
The Equetech Performance Riding Tights take riding tights to a whole new stylish level. Styled in a super 4–way stretch with excellent shape retention, they feature a silicone horizontal grip to inner legs and zip smartphone-sized pocket to thigh.
Glaze & Gordon recently announced the UK distribution of the Goode Rider brand. Goode Rider was founded in California by two ex-Levi Strauss designers, Lorna Goode and Kristin Calandra, who left the iconic jeans manufacturer to follow their dream of creating elegant, stylish but practical equestrian clothing.

Their innovation really excels with the Goode Rider Body Sculpting Seamless Tights where their exceptional technology provides anti-cellulite, energising, and body-sculpting properties to flatter all, meaning that your riding tights really do look good!
LD Equestrian are a brand built on technical engineering with a collection that embraces high performance and lightweight fabrics suitable for equestrians that demand the support to perform at their best, wear after wear. Using a combination of spandex, polyester and nylon, all of which have natural elasticity, these fabrics also contain a protective layer that prevents stains from being absorbed making them perfect for the messy jobs.
Engineered using the perfect technical blend of lightweight, thermal polyester lining their Lightweight Luxe Jacket provides warmth and protection whether you’re dashing about on the yard or in town. The subtle ‘wave’ embellishments provide understated elegance and glamour.
'No hoof, no horse'...
The expression, 'no hoof, no horse', also applies to the rider. If your feet are cold or tense then you can't perform to the best of your ability in that dressage test that you have been practising for weeks. Back On Track Socks are made with revolutionary Welltex fabric, which is infused with ceramic particles. These particles reflect body heat to support circulation, which can relieve joint tension and help avoid injury. These socks are especially popular with people who have problems with their feet, either caused by inflammation or poor circulation, so no more excuses for a bad test!
