Base layers are a popular choice for many riders, either to work as a warm layer against your skin in winter or as a breathable, full-stretch summer top. They are designed from soft stretch technical fabrics and are purposely designed for performance sportswear, giving you unrestricted movement while wicking away moisture for dry comfort.
Base layers are most effective when worn directly against the skin. They are designed to regulate your body temperature by wicking away moisture to keep you dry, helping to stay cool or warm depending on the conditions. Look for base layers made from technical fabrics with wicking, odour-control and quick-drying properties.
Perfect for the matchy-matchy lover
Many base layers, such as those made by Le Mieux, are designed with complimenting colour accessories and horse wear, to achieve the current on-trend matching look. Long sleeved base layers are also a popular choice for competing in cross country and for fun rides, especially in bright, vibrant colours to make you and your horse stand out!
