For riders with a “wild side” equestrian gifts and accessories company Carrots has launched a new leopard print hat cover and gloves.

“The items are the ultimate in co-ordinated accessories this summer, combining high street fashion with practical equestrian apparel, to bring a bit of ‘safari style’ to conventional items,” said a spokesman.

The hat cover is made from stretch fabric that fits over any skull cap, and the gloves are in four-way stretch fabric, giving a “close contact feel, ultimate flexibility and comfort”.

They also feature leather reinforcement at the fingers and thumb.

The leopard print range is one size only and costs £14 for the hat cover and £15 for the gloves, or as a set for £28.
