    Horses and riders can now wear plastic as well as cutting down on single-use items, as the equestrian world makes further environmentally friendly efforts.

    A turnout rug made from the equivalent of 110 plastic bottles is now on the market, while riders can wear breeches made from plastic waste taken out of the seas.
