Spring Fashion Trends in Equestrian Apparel and Tack

Posted by Aubry Boonstra on 19th Apr 2024

As we start to de-frost, the bugs begin to emerge, and the days get longer, we start thinking about what’s “in” this season. Maybe that’s street-style for you, or more than likely if you’re already here, it’s barn-style! We get just as excited here at Millbrook to see what’s going to be “in” this season, the colors, the patterns, and the styles. Spring typically brings a sense of new life - wardrobe (for you & your horse) included!

Our staff spends a lot of time with our brands hand selecting items that we believe our customers will love - from fit and feel to color and pattern. Without further ado, let’s jump into some equestrian spring fashion trends that we’re seeing for 2024!

Spring Equestrian Fashion: Where Style Meets Performance

When it comes to spring equestrian fashion, versatility and performance are paramount. Riders are looking for apparel that not only looks stylish but also provides comfort and functionality in the saddle. That's where technical fabrics come in.

Our Novella Women's The Beni Long Sleeve Sun Shirt is the epitome of style and performance. Crafted from a lightweight, moisture-wicking fabric with built-in UV protection, this shirt keeps you cool and protected from the sun's rays during those long days in the saddle. Whether you're hitting the trails or competing in the ring, the Beni Sun Shirt is a must-have for every spring riding ensemble.

Equestrian Apparel Trends: Riding in Style 

In addition to technical fabrics, this season is all about embracing vibrant colors and bold patterns. Pastel palettes are making a splash in equestrian apparel, adding a touch of springtime charm to every riding outfit.

Our Equinavia Women's "Alexandra" Ribbed Training Shirt in a soft pastel hue is the perfect example. With its ribbed texture and flattering silhouette, this shirt effortlessly combines style and comfort. Pair it with the Horze Women's Stella Waterproof Shell Jacket for lightweight layers that provide protection from spring showers while keeping you comfortable and dry.

But it's not just about pastels – floral accents are also trending this spring. The Kastel Denmark Women's Asphalt and White Leaf 1/4 Zip Long Sleeve Sun Shirt features a subtle floral print that adds a whimsical touch to your riding attire. Made from breathable, moisture-wicking fabric, this shirt keeps you cool and dry in the saddle while making a stylish statement.

Bold Hues and Metallic Details: Elevate Your Look

Bold hues and metallic details are adding a touch of glamour to equestrian apparel this spring. The Schockemöhle Sports Women's "Penny" Sleeveless Shirt in a bright and bold hue makes a statement in the ring, while the Chestnut Bay Women's SkyCool Long Sleeve Show Shirt with metallic accents adds a touch of sparkle to your riding ensemble.

For those seeking a touch of luxury, our selection of bridles includes the Kavalkade Sonya Swedish Bridle. Crafted from high-quality leather and adorned with intricate embellishments, this bridle is sure to turn heads in the show ring. With its ergonomic design and superior craftsmanship, the Sonya Bridle combines style and functionality for the discerning rider.

Embrace Sustainability: Eco-Friendly Equestrian Gear

As sustainability becomes increasingly important, riders are seeking eco-friendly options for their equestrian gear. Our Epona Queen's Mane & Tail Brush is made from sustainable materials, offering an environmentally conscious alternative for grooming your horse. With its ergonomic design and gentle bristles, the Queen's Mane & Tail Brush is a must-have for every grooming kit.
