What To Wear Horseback Riding

So, you plan on going horseback riding anytime soon and you are looking for the best outfits that will draw the right attention to you?

Whether you are going horseback riding for the first time or have been attending occasionally, you need to dress your part and make a statement.

Apart from the two aforementioned reasons to find the best outfits for horseback riding, you also need to consider your comfort and personal style.

Horseback riding is a fun activity that I would just about recommend to anyone especially if you love animals and earthy stable and outdoor smell.

And for an activity like that, showing up in an outfit that speaks class and comfort should be your ultimate goal.

In this guide, you will get inspired by over 10 hottest horseback riding outfit ideas for men and women; mostly for women though (*no offense*).

Things To Consider When Planning On What To Wear To Horseback Riding

First, you need to focus on your comfort; this is super important to avoid spending your whole day at the venue adjusting your outfit.

Secondly, consider balance when dressing up for special events; try to stick to the color theme of the event if any, and avoid dressing too little or too much.

Third, since you will be attending to animals (horses, and maybe cows), try not to dress up in colors that might speak them.

Fourthly, when going horseback riding avoid wearing dresses, sling sandals, and overly loose clothes.

Moving on, as I mentioned, this post will entail more horseback riding outfits for women than men because my blog audience is female and I have to serve my gals.

So, if you are a guy reading this, I apologize for the limited ideas, and you can check out the new post on this blog about horseback riding outfit ideas for men*.

What To Wear Horseback Riding + (Hottest Horseback Riding Outfits to Try)

1. White and neutral

What To Wear Horseback Riding

This is exactly what I meant by dressing comfortably when going horseback riding.

From the shoes to the oversized sweater everything speaks class and if this is a look you would be going for you would be able to recreate it with the white pants, brown knee boots, the tan sweater, any shirt, and the big boat bag.

2. Jeans and tee

What To Wear Horseback Riding

For the longest time, I know a lot of people have been confused about how safe it is to wear jeans to ride on a horse; let me tell you now, jeans are actually safe for this type of sport.

This is because this sport entails being comfortable while almost holding on for your dear life while on horseback, you do not want to be fighting with the wind for your overly sized clothes too.

3. The coat and boots

What To Wear Horseback Riding

This look has always been the poster child for horseback riding, and I love it.

I also love that it looks super comfortable to wear for even horseback riding in the winter.

It is quite easy to recreate especially if you already own a couple of the pieces.

If you don’t, you could check out Amazon for the coat, the white pants, and the boots too.

4. The tights

Ah, this is what sporty looks like; dressing up for a sport entails that you are put together like in the photo.

I love this look because of how cozy it is; it looks super active too and almost looks like gym wear.

The color of the top is perfect too; this will hide sweat marks, and others, however, I would recommend going for dark shades of pants too for the same purposes.

5. Match the colors

This is what I picture when say I like matching colors with my gym wear, like in the previous photo (4).

I don’t know about you but one of my major reasons for dressing in all dark colors is to hide fabric accidents.

And this fit may be an absolute first choice for anyone like me.

6. Button down fits

This gorgeous look is inspired by the model who has been the face of old money face for a while on Pinterest now.

The navy-blue button-down cardigan is a look, I love that it matches the pants too; you can always go for other colors too.

7. Pink gym wear

I love how she matched the horse to her outfits; very intentional if you ask me.

8. For the boys

As promised, a good horseback riding outfit for men, boys, or gents.

A green polo and tan colored pants are not doing too much if you ask me.

9. Dress cozy

10. Black top to down

This is another way to match colors as an equestrian or a horsey.

The oversized blazer and white gloves actually added a nice touch to this outfit.

11. Spandex and socks

Are you feeling active? 

Pair your favorite spandex leggings with a nice sweatshirt and your favorite shoes for a ready-to-board look.

Horseback riding is a sport after all and what better outfit to grace the activity than your favorite snug-fitting gym wear?

Not the jeans and boots kind of person? 

Opt for this look to look as classy and old money as you can.

With your helmet and the lace-up boots, you would be looking like money at the end of the day.

14. Or just all white

If you want to switch things up a bit, you can always ditch the blazers and go a bit casual with this one-color look.

You could even pair this look with brown or navy-blue knee boots instead of black for a superior look


Horseback riding is a great way to show off your style and still have fun while doing it.

In summary, it is best to dress in comfortable outfits when going for horseback riding events, and also somehow manage to draw the right attention.
