Serious equestrian competitors know that garments—their own and those on the horse—contribute to the overall effect of the presentation. Dressage riders, for example, are aware of the spectacular appearance of show coats and blouses, dress boots and helmets. Most riders select these items very carefully for comfort and appearance. Clothing should allow for maximum range of motion without compromising on visual impact. They also seek breathable fabrics for warm weather and adequate insulation for cooler temperatures. All said, apparel is a major investment for serious riders. This is why keeping the wardrobe safe and clean is of paramount importance.
Packing for a show is more than throwing some clothes in an overnight bag. Quality horsemanship includes a handsome turnout. Clothes should be selected with care and packed with equal prudence, also allowing for an extra set of show clothes in the event of unforeseen tears or soiling. Street clothes may also be needed for multi-day trips. Because of these contingencies, a rugged, durable carrier is needed that will provide adequate space for the garments while conveying a smart and dapper appearance to reflect your brand. Always sensitive to the needs of equestrian competitors, Tacktrunks.net provides just the satchel to suit (pardon the pun!) the occasion.
Utilizing Sunbrella fabric—at once incredibly sturdy and seemingly impervious to damage while simultaneously elegant and soft—this garment bag is perfect for riders at all levels of competition. Available in a warm burgundy color, trimmed and bound by forest green, it leaves ample room for monogram or logo to adorn the front and identify the owner. Giving five inches of width and three inches of height to the chosen emblem, the garment bag is easily customized to advertise rider, horse or farm at your next horse show. Lettering comes in white appliqué stitched in either forest green or terra cotta and the bag includes a belly flap for dressage.
Why make such a big deal over something as simple as a garment bag? Equestrian events are every bit as subjective as they are objective. Image counts heavily. Participants and coaches alike take great interest in what a wardrobe will look like in the show ring and during the competition. Ill-fitting, soiled, torn or inappropriate garments will count against a rider no matter their technique or horsemanship. More than that, riders report to feeling more confident when wearing their best show attire. Is it any wonder that these same competitors want to preserve their garb with the roomiest and most protective covering? Tacktrunks.net is in business to serve such athletes.
