Women's Competition Wear

We can help you put together a winning competition outfit from this season’s must-have competition clothing.

Hot summer months mean every competitor will be looking for that light and airy show shirt. Many brands such as Ariat, Holland Cooper and Shires have all designed show shirts with breathable mesh panels to help you cool.

For those still out competing during the winter months you know how important show shirts with long sleeves are to keep you warm. Along with a slightly thicker show jacket all designed to wick away moisture so you won’t be cold.

Many show jackets are now made with lightweight and stretchable fabric to help increase your range of movement compared to the thicker traditional competition jacket. If you are looking for a water repellant and breathable show jacket then Dublin’s tailored competition jacket will be your perfect purchase.

EqueTech offer the most beautiful range of traditional tweed jackets and Ariat have gone above and beyond with its range of stylish yet technical show jackets. Pikeur and Cavallo’s range of tailcoats will not disappoint when you are looking for the most flattering appearance in the dressage arena.

Pair a show jacket with white or tan breeches and you will definitely be drawing attention. Breeches or tights, high rise or low rise, knee patch or full seat we can match you up with your perfect breech to help you look incredible and feel comfortable in the saddle.

Lastly, finish off your look with a stock and pin, and a show-stopping belt. Fairfax and Favor have the most gorgeous suede ladies’ belts, Holland Cooper has a classic slim leather belt with their iconic logo on the buckle, and Pampeano polo belts have a great choice of colours.


This season Ariat have updated the Tri Factor X to the Tri Factor X Bellatrix full seat breech. The update now includes smart technology, with durable and compressive fabric which lends flexibility and balance to mirror your ride.

  • Moisture Movement Technology™ wicks away moisture from the skin
  • Calf Fit System (CFS™) alleviates pressure points and friction
  • Core Control Technology™ provides slimming support
  • Ariat® Hex Silicone Grip full seat for optimal grip in the saddle
