It's January here at the Farm House. It might be cold, wet & windy here in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, but spring isn't far away! Warm weather riding is an optimistic 8 weeks away & we can't wait to show you all the amazing new arrivals that are coming in right now! Kerrits Riding Apparel is a staff favorite for lessons, schooling & hitting the trails. This season they have upped the ante with some bright new colors and styles that you won't want to miss.
For starters - The Kerrits Rain Coat is always a big seller every year. I don't care what Kerrits names it or what colors it comes in, riders LOVE this rain coat. This year Kerrits introduces the RAIN STOPPER & it does exactly what you think. This jacket comes in poppy with black, emerald with flint & flint with purple haze, 2 fun bright colors and one classic conservative each with a subtle tonal equestrian print.
From the moment you put your arm though the sleeve you can feel this rain coat was designed by riders. The features in this jacket are all well thought out and highly functional for any equestrian. Starting with the long length, the zip down rear flap & the bi-directional front zipper, this coat was made for the barn. Stay nice and dry or fend off spring breezes while riding with the split flap open & the front zipper adjusted to create a no bulk situation in the irons.
The angled sleeves are ingenious, no more trying to reach out of your sleeves to hang on to that wet leadrope. The hood is perfect for sliding over your helmet or roll it up and stow it away for a rainy day. The Hydrotek fabric takes keeping you dry seriously, the taped seams, safeguard you against leakage, & the rear collar hidden air vent keeps you from getting too hot. If you plan on updating your riding raincoat this year, don't wait these guys sell out EVERY year.
Of course Kerrits is also bringing back the ever popular IceFil breeches this season in your favorite Flowrise styles in some new colors. If you missed the Kerrits Affinity breech introduced in 2019, you'll want to check it out. These breeches offer all the same features as your favorite show breeches, but use the IceFil fabric. Offered in white, black & 2 shades of tan, with front zip, figure flattering seams with subtle zip pockets. If you are looking for something that fits a little bit like the Flowrise, but wears like a show breech, the Affinity is your new friend.
Another new addition to the Spring Summer Kerrits Collection is the ultra versatile Kerrits Convertible Sun Shirt. Fight off the sun & bugs with ease in this light weight shirt. We love the rear hip pocket for treats & the roll tabs for short or long sleeves are perfect for throwing hay bales. The innovative pop up collar snaps closed to keep those pesky summer gnats away. Available in 3 fun colors cypress, poppy & purple haze.
For the competitive crowd Kerrits introduces the new Aero show coat, in your favorite mesh fabric. The Aero offers the traditional 3 button front with trendy features like faux exterior pockets, zipper under button close placket for a pucker free silhouette finished with a hidden low profile interior pocket. All this trendy tech is available in your choice of 3 colors - black, flint or navy & will set you back less than $200. What a steal of a deal!
