You may have heard of the saying: Dress for the job that you want, not the one you have.
It’s a notion that has been debated in business circles, but for equestrians, it cannot be any more true—especially if you practice dressage riding.
”Dressage” comes from a French word that means training—a process that every equestrian will be doing if they want to join a competition. It involves multiple tests with progressively difficult levels where both the horse and the rider are judged based on how well they can perform a series of movements from memory. It requires lots of patience and practice, which is why you will need all the help you can get, and that includes a good outfit. Sometimes, simply having the right gear can boost your confidence and may even help you ride better.
