September 15: Equiline Portrays Bold Colors, Classic Elegance and High Tech Performance among its Moods for Fall Equestrian Apparel


It’s hard to believe the waning summer breezes will soon give way to cooler air and fall foliage. Competition season so abundant across the nation during summer leads to regional and national finals as we begin to move indoors. New champions are crowned and so too new equestrian fashion abounds. Autumn is a very exciting time in equestrian sport.

Equiline, a leader in equestrian apparel design, welcomes dropping temperatures and falling leaves as an indicator to launch its latest Fall/Winter 2014-15 collection. The design team at Equiline, with a focus on what’s trending in general fashion and on performance enhancement through high technology innovations, launches its latest line in five distinct moods:

Class & Attraction: Prince of Wales plaid delicately sculpted onto technical fabrics and nylon solids with hints of plaid trim give way to an elegantly preppy and classical look. Breeches with all over plaid for her, ‘Elvie’, and for him, ‘Theo‘, or perhaps just a patch on pockets and trim are very much in style this season. Partnered with the oh-so comfortable second skin ‘Jasmine’ that provides moisture wicking and warmth is a must for cool mornings this fall. The latter is available in four colors; white, apple green, Havana brown and sky blue all with a striking copper thread detailed stitching.

Les Broideries: The embroideries provide extra refinement and timeless elegance to beautiful silhouettes. Intricate craftsmanship creates very feminine design as noted on the ‘Annabel’ innovative 3-layer softshell jacket with side panels and across the shoulder fine stitching that creates a soft and graceful appeal. ‘Annabel’ comes in blackcurrant, cyclamen and apple green. The ‘Rosy’ show shirt has gorgeous embroidered detail between the shoulders for a bit of surprise when the show coat is removed. Embroidery can be sporty too when paired with the youthfulness of a luxurious cotton hoodie as seen on the ‘Mia’ in blue night with contrasting ivory stitching.

Think Big: Bold effects and oversized ton-sur-ton (tone-on-tone) logos create excitement and enthusiasm. Use of color blocking is still trending with this mood as well. The ‘Logan’ men’s quilted vest is an example of thinking big, water resistant, windproof, highly breathable for comfort and coming in three distinct color ways; Havana brown, Baltic blue and blue night.

High Performance: Function is the name of the game; making athletic apparel with comfort and performance in mind. Technical fabrics, anatomic cuts and high stretch inserted panels that allow extreme flexibility, reducing restriction while still offering a close conforming fit. Elastic panels that run the full length of the breeches provide an added benefit of compression to help minimize muscle fatigue. The ‘Leah’ breech for her comes in five color ways for fall; dark orange, olive green, Havana brown, Baltic blue and white all with Equiline patented X-Grip for stability. The ‘Olivia‘ show coat for her is highlighted by edgy, geometric cuts that are trend forward combined with a slightly fuller fit to allow comfort and good range of motion. This show coat is available in navy, black, grey, Bordeaux and dark green allowing the rider multiple options.

Colors: Gone are the muted dark tones typically known for fall fashion. This autumn general fashion celebrates color and allows the shades more typical of summer to carry through so you can layer upon your most fond summer pieces to create the warmth you need into fall with matching tones. Most popular are jewel tones; plus sunny yellow, red and various shades of green. Neon is still a focus but subdued as accents is what’s trending. ‘Jackie’ the Equiline sporty show coat for men has the perfect hint of apple green neon piping along the collar to demonstrate what’s popular now. A predicted best seller is Equiline’s packable, proprietary LightDown, ultralight weight vest for her and him as ‘Tilly’ and ‘Owen’ respectively. Cheerful colors for both genders come in yellow, orange, blackcurrant, apple green, blue night and sky blue. For the colder days of winter this item also comes in a full sleeve, hooded jacket for both men and women.

So as the days get a bit shorter and you feel that old familiar coolness in the air, get excited to welcome all of the newest garments from Equiline this fall. This is Equiline’s most comprehensive collection yet and there is something for each and everyone’s particular taste among the various moods. The Fall/Winter collection will debut this week with select retailers. Check the EquilineAmerica.com website dealer page to find a store near you. Also don’t forget to outfit your horses for the coming cooler weather; Equiline has a full range of blankets, sheets and coolers for your equine partners that will keep them in style and comfort too.

September 5: Nick Skelton Collaborates with EQUILINE Srl to Develop A New Signature Saddle


Nicholas David Skelton is a world-renowned show jumping rider whose career has spanned nearly 38 years, winning thousands of classes and hundreds of Grand Prix' events. He began riding at age 18 months and in 1974 and 1975 took two team silver medals and an individual gold at the Junior European Show Jumping Championships. He has competed numerous times at the European Show Jumping Championships, winning three gold, three silver and three bronze medals both individually and with the British team over the course of 26 years. At the age of 54, Skelton won an Olympic gold medal as part of the victorious Great Britain show jumping team at the London Olympics in front of his home crowd. In 2013, he won the prestigious Grand Prix of Aachen aboard Big Star.

After years of collaboration with the Equiline Clothing Division, Nick Skelton has teamed up with the Equiline Saddle Division to design and develop a new signature saddle with exclusive design characteristics and important technological advancements: the new Equinline Nick Skelton saddle.

The experience of a legendary show jumper together with the craftsmanship of Equiline in saddle production has been the perfect combination to develop the Nick Skelton saddle. Designed carefully with the well-being of the horse in mind, the saddle is also technically balanced and comfortable for the rider in order to optimize overall performance. The saddle is lightweight and made of very soft full-grain oiled calfskin leather originating from free-roaming animals.

The tree is designed to adapt perfectly to the horse and to maintain the best seat for the rider. The seat is mid-deep allowing the rider to feel close-contact with his horse. Its patented IGS technology (Integrated Gel System) provides cushioning inserts to absorb vibrational shocks and pressure from the rider’s seat bones while promoting optimal posture and muscle tension reduction in the pelvis.

The extremely soft panels, with their anatomical shape, are free floating allowing uninhibited movement of the horse’s backbone and eliminating pressure points. They can be filled with either wool which allows for complete customization to an individual horse’s anatomy or can be filled with a very soft and durable synthetic T-Flex material.

The new Nick Skelton saddle, strictly made in Italy, offers another important technology patented by Equiline, FGT (Flap Grip Technology). FGT is a very soft rubber panel on the bottom of the quarter flap which gives the rider greater grip and stability in the saddle while also significantly reducing wear and tear of the saddle leather.

When asked which features of the Nick Skelton saddle make it most appealing Skelton replied, “My saddle is very comfortable, lightweight, super soft and it conforms superbly to the horse’s anatomy. It is a perfect combination of comfort, technology, security, softness and design.” Skelton himself had been riding in the same saddle for over 30 years; it took some convincing at first to engage his participation in this project. In hindsight of the collaboration with Equiline, he is only sorry that they haven’t designed his saddle sooner. Skelton continues “I recommend the Nick Skelton saddle to all riders who want to feel close-contact with their horse and increased safety thanks to the Flap Grip Technology which helps to further develop a rider’s proper leg position. I really hope all riders will try my saddle and that it will help make many become great champions!”

The Nick Skelton saddle officially debuted this past weekend at the International Equestrian Trade Fair, Spoga, in Cologne, Germany. Trade buyers were extremely enthusiastic regarding the saddle design and very encouraged that it will become a strong seller in the market for jumping saddles. Tatiana Mazzucato, Director of Marketing, for Equiline Srl says, “We couldn’t be more satisfied with the premier launch of the Nick Skelton saddle. Initial buyer demand has exceeded our expectations.” The Nick Skelton saddle will be available through select Equiline dealers in the US this fall and will be showcased and available for trial during the Washington International Horse Show held October 21st through 26th in Washington, DC.
