Arka Equipe has added a new jacket to its online range of luxury equestrian attire for horse and rider.

The ladies Sestriere Core Jacket from Dainese has elastic inserts to ensure maximum comfort and flexibility when riding as well as handy side pockets and a chest pocket.

Body heat is kept within the slim-fit Italian style jacket to allow for maximum protection from the cold.

“This jacket is perfect for any rider without compromising on style,” said a company spokesman.

The technical down jacket combines thermal insulation and protection with internal cuffs and a practical gaiter and thumbhole.

The coat comes in black/anthracite in sizes x small to large, priced £254.99.

New brands

Later this month, Arka Equipe will also be adding two new brands to its website.

The new collection from Dada Sport brings “Parisian chic” to competition wear from jumpers and gilets to coats and jackets.

And the new limited edition range from Accademia Italiana in Milan features a selection of competition and everyday breeches and tops for men and women.

These new collections, as well as the jacket from Dainese and a range of saddles and tack from Pariani, Prestige and Lamborghini, can be seen on Arka Equipe’s stand at Olympia (L23) which takes place from 16-22 December.

Arka Equipe has also recently sponsored 18-year-old event rider Melissa Joannides and 17 year-old showjumper Georgia Lovett.

The company has said it will also soon be announcing a new sponsored dressage rider.
