Aldi’s popular budget equestrian clothing range has returned.
Early online pre-ordering opened yesterday (3 April), with the products landing in stores across the country on Sunday (8 April).
Aldi revealed the news in its email newsletter, but shoppers will need to be quick — the retailer’s horsey range has been snapped up in previous years.
The equestrian range is one of Aldi’s “Specialbuys”, which are released on Sundays and Thursdays and include items as diverse as kitchenware, cycling products, ski clothing and DIY tools.
While the expertise of your local tackshop is indispensable for all your horse and riding needs, Aldi’s range could help you stock up on some bargains — alongside your bread and milk.
Items include PVC riding boots for £19.99, long riding socks for £2.99 and a ladies’ hybrid jacket for £19.99.
There are also plenty of items for horse-mad youngsters, including gilets for £9.99, breeches at £7.99 and hoodies starting at £4.99.
The Crane ladies’ hybrid jacket (pictured, above and top) is wind and water resistant and features zip pockets. The description reads it is “ideal for keeping warm and comfortable during any outdoor activity”.
For those dreaming of drier weather, the Crane ladies’ seamless zip-neck top looks ideal for summer riding or the gym.
It is available in pink or blue, with a “contoured fit” and moisture-wicking fabric — essential for sweaty schooling sessions.
