Ariat has launched a new collection in time for the cooler weather in autumn.

”The new Ariat Urban Eccentric Ladies Collection is so elegant that customers will be wishing for the cold weather to hurry up,” said a spokesman for the company.

“The fashionable and funky range of outdoor apparel offers trendy equestrians the chance to stay warm and comfortable, while still looking stylish.”

The range comes in “bold, rich” colours and stars the “Ashley Vest” and “Stella Fleece Jacket”.

The Ashley vest comes in heliconia pink or black and is a quilted vest — perfect as an over layer for “chilly autumn days”. It has a stain-repellent out fabric, polka dot lining and polyfill insulation. It is designed to be wind and water resistant and the company says it “retains warmth while still being breathable”.

It comes in sizes XS to XXL and costs £64.99.

The Stella fleece jacket is made from minka fleece with jersey fleece side panels. It comes in navy or mulled wine in sizes XXS – XXL and costs £59.99.
