Evolving equestrian style  

Equestrian style hasn’t changed much over the years, and its purpose has remained the same — to be comfortable, practical, and safe. In the 1700s, women wore fancy riding skirts to cater for side-saddle, but since the early 1900s, when jodhpurs started to be worn by both men and women, equestrian fashion has remained largely unaltered.

The most noticeable advances have come in recent years with innovations in waterproof materials and technical, moisture-wicking, stretchy fabrics. Most manufacturers still play it safe and design riding clothes in traditional styles and classic colours but not Blackfort Equestrian!

The tagline, “Equestrian influenced. Style inspired.” Expresses Blackfort Equestrian’s mission to stir up equestrian fashion. And it’s doing so in two prominent ways:

1.     A focus on feminine, flattering fits.

2.     A colour revolution.

Base layers and tights, like strawberries and cream…

Or peanut butter and jelly, or Pina Coladas and tiny umbrellas. You get the gist.

Blackfort Equestrian has designed an exciting range of coordinated base layers and riding tights for riders who want to create matching equestrian sets that turn heads.

We’re not talking crazy shell-suit type combos or outlandish golfing outfits. We’re talking about combinations that work together to create an understated style that is elegant and sporty.

Beautiful base layers

If you’re looking for an affordable premium technical sports top that doesn’t compromise on style, Blackfort Base Layers are for you. Crafted with the fashion-conscious Equestrian in mind, the branded detailing on the arm and the silicone logo on the chest will make you look and feel like a pro.

Practical riding tights

Made from a technical material that provides a four-way stretch and a compression feel, these quality riding tights will keep you feeling supported when out riding, around the yard, or even at the shops. And because they move with you, you’ll barely notice you’re wearing them.

Sometimes all you need is a little splash of colour

“The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.” Coco Chanel.

Blackfort Base Layers come in a refreshing range of colours to include beautiful brights and perfect pastels.

Choose from solid blocks of rose pink, coral, plum, mint, light pink, sage, lavender, and corn blue.

The understated style comes into play when you match your base layer to a pair of Blackfort Equestrian riding tights. Pops of contrasting colour in the logos, stitching and ankle cuffs is just enough to subtly match your bottom half to your top half and present an overall picture of sporting equestrian harmony.

Choosing the perfect colour for your matching riding set
