Let’s face it; we need to ride our horses whether it is a beautiful, sunny 80 degree day, or a blistery 30 degrees with a chance of snow. Keep yourself warm and cozy at the barn or on a winter trail ride with Rod’s solutions for staying warm, even in the coldest weather.
Dress in Layers – Start with a layer that will wick sweat away from the body. The material that lies against your skin should keep you dry and repel sweat. Under Armor is commonly used in sporting events for this purpose. Next think of staying warm. Try an easily removable hooded sweatshirt or button down top. If it gets too warm, this layer can be removed easily. Lastly, protect against the elements. Rod’s canvas overalls and jacket are durable and will help protect from snow, rain and sleet.
Eye Protection – The reflection off snow can be harmful to your eyes and also cause glaring which can make riding unsafe. Try these great sunglasses that completely cover your eyes and add a little western flare.
