Spring Greens, Gorgeous Greys…and a hint of Pink in between!

April’s Top Picks By Our Fashion & Style Editor Sophie Tunnah

Anyone else notice in the last couple of weeks how green the grass has gone? How our verges and woodlands suddenly have an injection of colour lining them?

SPRING IS FINALLY HERE!

Every equestrian is on countdown from the clocks going back to the clock going forward again, but when spring has finally sprung, we all get excited!

Embracing the lush greens of the world around us with some beautiful items to put you on track this season.

I’m a BIG lover of this bright green, and maybe apart from a chestnut, I think it looks good on any colour horse or pony!

 

 

It also helps that one of my favourite brands is LeMieux – I think the quality of their products is top rate. I have four or five saddle pads and numnahs from them, all of which wear well, wash well, and I think they are fairly priced with the market for similar products.

How about some funky footwear this spring? WackySox have some gloriously green equestrian socks in stock, and at just £6.50 they are a spring steal!

But what colour goes with such a bright and glaring colour? Grey. Light or dark.

Mark Todd Gisborne breeches are my go-to everyday breeches. There are usually around the £50 mark, and my pairs have lasted me six or so years, being worn every week for everyday riding. They’ve washed well, and when recently two of mine wore through, I was quick to purchase another pair exactly the same.

You can pick a pair up from Equestrian.com

While looking for the Mark Todd breeches on Equestrian.com, I came across the Dublin Supa Shape It Performance breeches. I haven’t had a pair of Dublin breeches before, but I am intrigued by these, as they offer comfort & support as well as breathability – perfect for the warmer weather coming up!

If you’re only looking for a splash of spring green, or aren’t a fan of bandages (I’m not!) when exercising your neddy, another gorgeously grey item is the LeMieux Pro Sport Support boots in charcoal. Great for providing support while schooling, dark enough to cover up any dirt (or poop!) and yet much more luxurious looking than the standard black! Or, why not try a grey ear veil instead of green? These look especially good on a lighter coloured horse.

If you’re not such a fan of the glorious green that I like, you can add a spring colour to your everyday riding with a touch of pink – I spotted this funky set (right) on Throstlenest Saddlery’s website.

 

Don’t forget, spring is a colourful time of the year, so whether its greens, pinks, blues or purples, embrace the bright colours & tone them down with as much or as little grey as you like (just don’t mix the bright colours together!)
