"...The Saddle Skirt was nice when schooling in the arena on cold or rainy days, and we think it would be most beneficial for the show rider waiting at ringside in the rain for a class to start.  It can be spread out to cover pricey show pants and an expensive show saddle and be quickly removed when it's time to enter the ring."

As riders that face many weather conditions, keeping ourselves and our saddles dry is always a challenge. Although we could make do with a quarter-sheet, dismounting is always a problem. There didn't seem to be anything we could find that met our needs, so we designed it!  The result is a highly wind and water repellent riding skirt that protects our expensive saddles from rain and snow while riding.

The Discovery Trekking Outfitters Saddle Skirt is breathable, stretchy, and stays in place even in windy conditions. The garment anchors to the legs of the rider with adjustable elastic and completely covers the pommel or horn. The highly technical fabric is very water and wind repellent.  The soft fabric doesn't rustle or make noise like other protective sheets.  As a major bonus, you can get on and off your horse while wearing the rain skirt, as it does not attach to your horse in any way. Once on the ground you won't win a fashion contest, but it's very functional!

The all-weather saddle skirt has an adjustable cinch waist. It is made from a durable softshell fabric that is normally intended for high-end outerwear. The Regular saddle skirt covers the rider and the saddle. From front to rear it measures approx. 47".  It is approx. 60" across, or 30" from the midline of your horses back to where it ends above your stirrups.  

The Extended style was developed at the request of endurance and eventing riders and has an adjustable, retractable rump rug.  The extended version can be cinched up to fit just behind the saddle, or extended to cover the rump of the horse to keep their muscles warm.  The extended saddle skirt will cover the rump of larger breeds such as Warmbloods. It is approximately 78" from front to the rear when it is fully extended. If measuring from the rider's back, it is 52" to the end of the rump.  The width is 58" across in total, or 29" from the rider's center back, down over the riders legs.

Skirts can be custom made in many colors, but we generally keep black (heavier weight with a fleece backing for fall and winter riding) or blue (lighter for rainy climate, not as warm) in stock in both styles. Call us if you have a color you would like made, and we'll do our best based on fabric availability.  We can also make the skirt wider for people with long legs. This does require adding a panel onto the fabric and the cost is reasonable. Plan on a week for us to make a customized skirt. 

The adjustable elastic waist fits a range of sizes.  Even though they show a set size range, this fabric is stretchy so it will actually fit someone with a slightly larger waist than the range indicates. Also, it can be cinched a larger size may also work for a smaller person. But, it's still best to choose the size that is closest to your actual measurement.

Choose from:

S (waist sizes up to 34")

M (waist sizes from 34"-40") 

L (waist sizes from 40"-46")
