Keeping warm in the UK winter

The winter weather has arrived and I really hate being cold (I’m in thermals from October usually) so I have shortlisted 5 of my favourite winter essentials for keeping warm and dry while riding and around the stables, click on the titles to see places to purchase each item.

NEUMANN TACKIFIED LEATHER WINTER GLOVES

 

NEUMANN WINTER RIDING GLOVES:- The winter version of these gloves have thermal lining but I also love the summer weight version for the warmer months. The palm of the gloves is tackified leather which never loses the grip no matter how damp or cold it is. They are easy to wash and breathable so perfect for the damp, cold conditions in winter.

PARLANTI LONG LEATHER CHAPS

PARLANTI LONG CHAPS – They are a saviour in really cold weather and if you suffer from chilblains, these can help hugely to prevent them. They are made to measure so they fit pretty snugly and the leather is really soft so they don’t feel restrictive like some other long chaps. I ordered mine in dark brown with cream piping but they come in lots of different colours so you can personalise them to your favourite colour combinations.

PIKEUR WINTER WEIGHT BREECHES

PIKEUR WINTER BREECHES – the breeches are fleece lined and the outer material is water repellent but still really soft so not bulky and still really comfortable.

They come in a range of colours (including white for shows!) and wear really well (I’ve had mine for a few years and they still look new)

CAVALLERIA TOSCANA WINTER POLO

 

CAVALLARIA TOSCANA KENDO POLO:- this polo neck technical top comes in white and black and is really warm. It is made from a stretch breathable fabric and is really super soft. Perfect as a stylish base layer now the temperatures have dropped.

KINGSLAND BERGEN RAIN JACKET:- this jacket is perfect for riding at home and shows when you want to wear warm layers but need something lightweight waterproof/windproof. Not strictly just for winter as I actually wore it a lot throughout the summer/autumn but because the technical fabric is thin, you can pile on the base layers underneath and it keeps you dry and stops the wind.
