Equestrian Looks – The Bling Trend
Bling has been a highly popular sartorial trend in equestrianism for a number of years now. What started with a few glitzy browbands here and there has turned into a widespread un-quenchable phenomenon, with everything from diamante-encrusted tack to glittery hoof polish now readily available.
Image of course isn’t everything, and in competition, substance is as important as style, but if you and your horse are fashionably turned out you will be remembered. Donning a bit of bling here and there could indeed be a natural extension of immaculate turn out, and here at Groomers Equestrian we think it is a great way to add a bit of fun to your riding gear. Here is a short selection of our favourite accessories championing the bling trend, all available through us online:
Equetech Hexatec Competition Shirt
This Competition Shirt is a stylish item of riderwear featuring eye-catching diamante edging around the collar and four front buttons inlayed with large clear diamante crystals. The shirt uses advanced fabric technology to offer a fully breathable, quick drying top, with the ultimate in both stretch and shape retention. This machine-washable shirt features capped sleeves, a stock collar, and shapely darts to flatter all figures, as well as a tailored front panel, making it ideal for wearing under jackets when competing.
Constructed from soft Amara suede, these classic style half chaps feature subtle diamante detailing. The chaps include elasticated front ankle inserts for a superior fit, along with a full-length zip and elasticated foot stirrups for a secure, comfortable fit.
Ladies Bling Spurs
This pair of Ladies Bling Spurs feature diamante crystals embedded into the metalwork. Crafted from stainless steel and fine Italian leather, these fashionable spurs are available with pink, blue or clear diamantes.
One of a number of stylish bling browbands we stock from EQvvs, the Curved Wide Crystal Browband is a padded band with leather edging in a glamorous diamante style. This browband has a thick thread of clear diamante crystals inlaid on the leatherwork, and features elasticated loops for easy fitting to all bridles.
