    Let’s start with EBONY…

    Is there anything more stylish than a black outfit?

    I love an occasional pop of of colour in my wardrobe, but regularly find myself returning to my black essentials. When I use all black in one of my equestrian outfits, I feel like it makes me look mysterious and a little edgy. But simultaneously, black is the color of elegance, sophistication and class. It’s surprisingly versatile!

    Let’s face it – black goes well with literally anything. If you’re going to go all black, I think the best tip I have is to not be afraid of using it with different materials, colors, prints and textures. For example: add metals and leather for an edgier look. Mix black with pastel colors for a youthful touch. My personal favourite is a simple clean black and white – I love a white tee, and the black riding tights below are super flattering.

    So have a look below for some of the best black accessories for equestrians and horse-riding enthusiasts…

    equestrian outfits - R.J. Classic's Ladies Diana Show Coat

    A well cut coat is everything, right? No English riding outfit would be complete without it.

    I love the slim fit of this R.J. coat. It just screams elegance to me – and that’s what I want!


    • Wool-like feel
    • Traditional styling
    • Machine washable
    • Matching lining
    • R.J. Logo buttons

    Ovation Viviana Flash Bridle (with Crystal V-Shaped Browband)

    equestrian outfits - Ovation Viviana Flash Bridle Browband

    I think browbands are adorable on all horses at all times. But I’m a little bit of a magpie, in that I automatically think that anything shiny is way better than its non-shiny counterpart.

    Enter this browband! The crystals and the V-cut are just perfect, if you ask me.


    • Comes as a full bridle set
    • Comfort Crown System
    • Raised V-Browband with crystals
    • Round raised cutback nose
    • 5/8″ anti-slip reins
    • US style fit
    • Prefinished leather that is soft, supple and ready to use
    • No oil required, simply wipe clean after use and condition as needed

    TuffRider Ladies Belmont Dress Boots

    equestrian outfits - TuffRider Ladies Belmont Dress Boots

    Okay so I feel like I’m cheating a little bit by including riding boots, because so many pairs of boots are black anyway. But at the same time – this is such a good opportunity to recommend these beautiful TuffRider boots to you!

    • Leather with Spanish Top
    • Back Zipper
    • Plain Toe Cap
    • Round toe

    LeMieux Support Boots

    These boots, to me, just scream ‘performance’. If my competition were to trot over wearing a pair of these, I would be scared.

    Don’t you want to be the one intimidating your competition, not the other way around? Only a healthy amount of intimidation, of course 😉


    • Best all-round boot for turnout, schooling or competition
    • Lightweight & protective while allowing flexibility of movement
    • Offers support to the fetlock & tendon
    • Breathable Airprene lining prevents rubbing & sweat build up

    Whitaker NRG Helmet

    Riding helmets are, of course, a must have for your safety.

    But that doesn’t mean they have to be boring! And this Whitaker helmet is anything but. The matte black is gorgeous, and with the metallic accents I think it looks fabulous.

    • EPS foam on inner shell for shock absorption

    Prairie Black Leather Riding Crop

    Prairie Black Leather Riding Crop

    This Prairie leather riding crop is everything that a riding crop should be: unfussy, simple, and sleek. And even better, you get a choice of color for the shaft!

    But let’s be real – you’re choosing black, right?


    • 100% fiberglass shaft (guaranteed not to break)
    • Shaft is covered in your choice of black, pink, purple or fuchsia
    • Woven leather-style covered solid fiberglass handle with loop

    Horze Juliet Hyper Flex Riding Tight

    equestrian outfits - Horze Juliet Hyper Flex Riding Tight

    I used to be really big on loud, patterned riding tights.

    But of course many of them aren’t competition appropriate, and what’s more I’ve started to feel like maybe they’re not as flattering?

    These tights are great, because they are super flattering. Honestly, like I said above – I can’t go past the clean cut look of these and a white tee. Perfection.


    • Silicone-print full seat tights
    • Comfortable, breathable & easy to care for
    • 85% Nylon, 15% Elastane
    • So flattering!

    Gallop Mane & Tail Shampoo

    Gallop Mane & Tail Shampoo

    So this ‘colour’ version of Mane N’ Tail brings out color in your horse’s mane, tail and coat that has been faded or dulled by the sun. What an innovation! Sign me and my horse right up.


    • An exact color match is not necessary
    • Ideal for show preparation
    • Cleans and intensifies natural color and sheen
    • Dye-free
    • Some people swear by it on their own hair – but see my review here!
