In the south this end of February to Early April weather is so confusing. You will start the morning bundled in your largest Mountain-Horse Puffer Jacket, and by 4PM it’s a t-shirt. I’ve just learned that this type of weather has a name, “transitional weather.” So while Spring styles are coming out, I thought I’d share my go-to “transitional weather” attire for the barn. (Click the images to see where I found the best selection or price!)
I naturally stay pretty cold, so this will last me through some of the summer months to.
The Equine Couture Brittni Knee-Patch breeches are my go-to all weather breeches. I think these are trendy, but at a perfect price point I don’t mind bathing two muddy ponies in. At under $75, I think the material is nice for your chillier days without going fleece-lined. Click the photo below!
Ok, I am obsessed with this jacket, the Kerrits Eq Quilted Moto Jacket 2018. I bought this jacket in black last October, and I literally wear it to go work out in, at the barn, it’s the perfect medium weight athleisure-type fitted jacket! It’s also under $100 which seems like a deal, when I purchased it last fall I paid quite a bit more, so it’s a good end of winter type jacket.
In the South, this may be a touch warm for April, so I’m obsessed with the Lululemon Define Jacket for the next two months. I’m a fan of wearing athleisure almost 24/7 if I can, and this uber light jacket is perfect for these cooler mornings!
If you dont like the price tag, I’ve linked a few dupes here for under $50!
So I try to wear a light jacket to the barn right now, and will usually shed this while riding! (How many jackets have I left on the ground by the dressage ring !? )
So then, and I’m a little different for two reasons. The equestrian-athletic wear is a bit pricey. I have a few sun-shirts that I wear for lessons or at competitions, and they’re still a bit light to wear when it’s still breezy and cold. I’d also rather wear these twisted-knot cotton tees, just because they’re more comfortable and warmer. But, I hate wearing baggy clothes when I ride, so I wear a ton of these plain cotton long-sleeve tees with the twist knot. I wear these outside the barn too. They’re so, so cheap. I found some at Target and then here. Size down if you want a more fitted feel.
If you are looking for sun-shirts or liners during this ‘transitional” season, here are a few dupes under $40!
