Eques Pante

What riders are saying:

makes a great gift for...

The eventer who questions the decision to make white pants a part of competing The rider who wants to feel comfortable Anyone who hates pantylines more than 20 meter circles

"I liked the first pair I purchased so well that I bought a second pair! They are so comfortable for riding- the fabric is silky and smooth. No panty line and no chafing."

Honestly, it's about time someone came up with a way to battle the dreaded pantyline. If we're going to be subjected to wearing tight white pants, the least we could have is the chance to do it with some dignity. Now we can, thanks to Eques Pante.

Editor's Picks:

Things We Love

Ride in comfort, ride with protection. Made by an equestrian for equestrians High-quality, durable material that wicks away moisture and prevents rubbing and chafing Contoured waistband Designed to be worn in and out of the saddle Made in the USA

We believe that every body belongs in the equestrian world, and this means having the ability to feel confident and comfortable in our own skin. The Eques Pante isn't about "hiding" things, it's about finding a solution to the ages-old problems of chafing, underwear lines, and ill-fitting clothing

options. Plus, it's a bonus that there are options that make those tight white pants more bearable on show day. Whose idea was white pants, anyway? We have questions.

ICE-VIBE® BOOTS $329.95+

Editor's Picks:

What riders are saying:

Don't ask us how we know, but a set of Ice-Vibe boots are a surefire way to make the eventer in your life happy this holiday season. Ice therapy is a key ingredient to proper recovery for sport horses, and Ice-Vibes make life simpler with their easy-to-use design and horse-friendly setup. Ice-Vibe® therapeutic horse boots combine the effects of cooling and massage therapy to reduce soreness and swelling, help boost circulation and stimulate healing. Cold Packs aid in slowing down inflammation whilst massage panels improve circulation allowing oxygen to reach the tired and damaged tissue. This combination stimulates repair of tendons and ligaments in your horses' legs, hocks and knees. Used before or after exercise on a regular basis, Ice-Vibe® boots can help keep your horse healthy and sound all year round. Ice-Vibe Does What Ice Can’t

"The Ice-Vibe boots are an excellent cold therapy system. In my opinion they are the most effective and user friendly way of cooling."

-William Fox-Pitt, 5* Eventer

Horseware

makes a great gift for...

The horse owner who appreciates good craftsmanship and quality The rider who wants the best for their horse (and dog!) The rider with a hard-working horse Horseware is well-respected for its robust selection of blankets that are tough when put to the test. We're particularly excited about the all-new Rhino HexStop Plus -- tough enough for troublemakers!

RHINO® HEXSTOP PLUS $339.95

MADE FOR MISCHIEF

Putting it To the Test:

Our horses will be horses, and we wouldn’t change them for the world. The Rhino Hexstop is designed for the horse that is always ripping its rugs, to give you peace of mind that your horse is protected and comfortable, no matter what mischief they get up to that day. Our new Rhino Hexstop Plus with Vari-Layer has been designed with a hexagonal ripstop weave which makes it a game changer in protection for those horses that are hard on rugs. It’s waterproof and breathable and the revolutionary Barrier technology gives that extra peace of mind.

More on HexStop

Made by equestrians, for equestrians.

Our designers set out to make a rug that could withstand even the most mischievous horseplay and protect your horse in cold and wet weather, through it all.

"I liked the first pair I purchased so well that I bought a second pair! They are so comfortable for riding- the fabric is silky and smooth. No panty line and no chafing."

We all loathe a pantyline, and we hate chafing just as much. Thanks to Eques Pante, we now have a solution for both that doesn't add bulk under our britches.
