Your riding apparel is dependent upon your riding discipline. For daily rides, an English rider might wear breeches, boot socks, riding gloves, and half chaps. For a Western rider, apparel for everyday training and barn chores includes denim jeans, chaps, western shirts and gloves. During competition, show apparel also varies by discipline. The English disciplines generally wear a show coat and shirt with appropriate breeches and gloves, while a Western rider would wear a fancy Western shirt and show jacket with matching chaps and show pants. While modern riding apparel maintains a classic look, modern technical fabrics are very popular. Athletic riding apparel includes moisture-wicking and breathable fabrics, many of which also offer UV sun protection. These new technologies have expanded traditional riding wear in almost every discipline.
