OUTER LAYER

An equestrian competition outer layer is a highly specialised garment. It must adhere to event dress codes while protecting riders from the elements. Musto uses the most advanced outdoor fabric technologies in their competition shell layers. These deliver incredible weather protection, combined with a traditional equestrian aesthetic.

MID LAYER

You can’t wear your mid layers during competition. However, they add warmth without the bulk between events or when warming up in the cold. Choose a layer with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treatment to keep you dry outside. Opt for a piece with lightweight and packable insulation that can easily be stowed into your day bag until you need it.

BASE LAYER

High energy activity calls for breathable base layers that wick away moisture to keep you dry and comfortable. In cold conditions, these base layers need to retain your body warmth as much as possible. Choose a slim fit to make it easier to layer up in the saddle.
