As a made to measure show jacket does it fit?
Yes, as a made to measure jacket, ordered over the internet, it fits extremely well. I would say there’s not a lot I would change to the fitting and it was a very easy and quick process filling out the questions online.
Were the colours as per the brochure?
The colours were exactly as described on the brochure, and the pictures were too. As you go through the available options, it gives you a very clear idea of what you are purchasing.
I did, it looks very made to measure and feminine, which is not always the case with women’s equestrian clothing in the UK, as opposed to the French and Italian more elegant style.
The technology behind the Horse Pilot jacket is fascinating as it’s clearly not all just about the looks : It has a breathable bi-stretch material allowing for comfort and freedom of movement all whilst maintaining that elegant and made to measure fit. Now even more advanced is the Gold Reflect’Line technology which boosts muscle tone, stimulates recovery and improves balance. This highly advanced approach to design and use of materials clearly puts Horse Pilot into another league; could this be the jacket of the future!
I thought the V cut in front was a little low. In France, women often only wear a white collar but in the UK, where we all still use the more traditional stocks, it left too much room for your stock to come out whilst riding.
I’m very fortunate to be sponsored by Equetech who design the most beautiful show jackets for me to wear. I would say Horse Pilot are right up there with potentially one of the best jackets on the market.
The jacket is comfortable, practical and smart looking – the three essential components when it comes to riding in my opinion. Riding clothing is a very traditional look and the key is too maintain that elegance whilst bearing in mind that it is a sport and we need to be in the appropriate clothing to best do our job!
Yes and I would say the fact that the jacket is machine washable is another massive plus in terms of practicality! I love the shoulder pads too as they maintain the look. The jacket doesn’t lose it’s made to measure fit unlike other more traditional jackets that might stretch and lose their shape in English weather conditions.
It has a small inside pocket, which comes in handy as I’m always losing my phone.
I would definitely one hundred percent recommend the jacket. It’s a stunning design and the options in terms of colours and extras are far more extensive than most jackets on the market today. The technology involved and specific use of material clearly put Horse Pilot into another league. Finally the thought process behind it all is a sport friendly one, it’s comfortable and practical and like I said before, that’s fundamental to our sport.
I would say the jacket is fairly priced given the technology involved, such top end materials are always going to come at a cost and in my opinion is worth every penny. This would be a one off expense as I can’t see anyone needing another jacket for a very long time !
