... was it to require dressage riders to wear white breeches in competition anyway?
Constructed of lightweight, 100% Polyester, the Spinnakers come in ladies sizes 24-34 for $39.95. Choose from black or this seasons newest color, navy. We picked navy because we LOVE the way navy looks with our bright blue Gumleaf Iceni Rain Boots from PBWellies!).
Here's the deal: the Spinnakers are designed for easy on/easy off, even with boots and spurs, in the saddle or out. Their 2-way, side zippers run the full length of the leg. Elastic and velcro at the waist and elastic cording at the ankle allow for an easy, adjustable fit. So go ahead, wear your show breeches throughout your prep - the Spinnakers will keep you clean, dry and show-perfect.
Now, when your new Spinnakers arrive, don't just tuck them away until your next show, take a few minutes to understand how the zipper system works.
On the Spinnakers, two-way zippers allow you to put on or take off your boots and spurs easily while staying clean and dry. Just unzip the pants from the bottom. VOILA.
Last minute trip to the Port-a-Let before your class? No problemo - just undo the velcro at the waist and unzip your Spinnakers from the top.
Time to show? Super - because getting out of the Spinnakers, whether in the saddle or on the ground, is EASY once you understand the basics of how two-way zippers work. Don't laugh, a surprising number of us DON'T HAVE A CLUE. That's why we're here.
