Special Buy – horse riding clothes and accessories from Aldi
Riding enthusiasts need look no further than Aldi’s Country Living range to stock up on equestrian essentials this winter. Including everything from blouson jackets and gilets to stable rugs and hay nets, the range will be available online from 19th January and in stores from 26th January.
Other noteworthy items from the range, include a Fixed Neck Turnout Rug (£34.99) available in blue and comes complete with integrated neck cover, touch close straps and shoulder gussets. It’s the perfect choice for keeping horses comfortable and dry during chilly rides in the winter months. In addition, the fully lined Standard Neck Stable Rug (£19.99) with twin buckle chest fastening is a great option for keeping horses warm whilst in the stable and is available in a range of sizes.
Aldi’s wind and water resistant Ladies’ Softshell Riding Breeches (£29.99) are breathable and quick drying to ensure riders are also protected against the elements. They are available in 26-32” waist sizes and come with a full faux suede seat to provide ultimate comfort. These can be paired perfectly with the hooded Ladies’ Softshell Jacket (£19.99), and Ladies Riding Gilet (£14.99), which come in stylish blue and berry colour options.
Aldi kindly sent us some of the range to try and they were swiftly given to two horse loving teams, and here is their feedback: Jodhpurs – very nice fit and feel, nice amount of stretch for freedom of movement, warm and windproof, excellent value for softshell jodhpurs.
Gilet – lightweight and slim fitting great for layering. Much less bulky than the gilets we’ve purchased from Aldi before. Liked the zip pockets in the front and breathable panels at the side with zip vents. Lovely to wear, and looks really good, but check the zippers before buying to avoid any stiff zips and that they don’t catch on the fine breathable fabric. It’s very good value for the quality and feel.
Zip top – very light layer with good warmth and a nice finish. Feels very cosy with enough length in the body to ensure there is plenty to tuck it to keep out the cold. Good value.
With a fleece lined collar and padded lining, this Blouson Jacket (£24.99) is warm, cosy and ideal for wearing round the stables or even for keeping warm during cold country walks. The jacket also features an inner zipped panel for team logos be embroidered onto. Lovers of the great outdoors can complete the look with Aldi’s Ladies Walking Boots (£19.99).
The range also boasts a whole host of quality stable must-haves, including this smart and durable Numnah (£8.99), padded Saddle Pad (£8.99) , adjustable Horse Head Collar (£3.99) and nylon Hay Net (£3.99).
Aldi’s Specialbuys Country Living range is available in stores nationwide from 26th January and can be pre-ordered online at www.aldi.co.uk from 19th January but be quick, as with all Specialbuys, once it’s gone it’s gone!
