As title. Looking for long waterproof coats that you can ride in. I can’t afford mega bucks but happy to pay a little more for something that will do the job.

I have one of these


I love jack Murphy clothing. I have a short jacket that I got for my 20th birthday and it reproofs great every year. It’s getting a little tatty inside and I need to buy a new one but considering I’ve had it over 15yrs it’s doing great!!

Do you go on Instagram? If you look up my friend "threebayequines" she has just 'reviewed' the new Harry Hall riding coat/jacket and I must say it looks fab.

I have a Country Estate coat, it’s been really good, I’ve had it almost 10 years and got it second hand, sadly I bust the zip a couple of years ago but I still haven’t replaced it 🙄 I really must and will probably just get another the same as it’s unusual to get such a cheap coat that’s so good!.

Do you find it waterproof? I love mine ( I have 3!) But I find they leak? I'm going to proof the 2 good ones I think, I like them too much to give up on them.

Yeah it’s always been great, though it’s old and last winter if it was really hammering down stair rods I got slightly damp at the seams, but I painted on rug proofer and that seemed to cure it.

I couldn't get on with long coats for so ride in waterproof riding tights/jodhpurs (or waterproof riding trousers/long chaps) and a short-er length waterproof coat.

You may find that more budget friendly too :)

Carthorse, what trousers do you recommend? I have a drizabone coat but the leg straps come in the wrong place. May be I should get it out and try again? Has been used only for watching polo.

I've got some old Shires ones that have been going for years @Skib. I also have some fleece lined waterproof (may be sold as water resistant but I've never had them leak) Dublin breeches that are great for cold wet weather. I always find the leg straps on long coats are in the wrong place when I ride, and I've had horses spooked by them too which isn't fun.

I usually do that. I have short blouson jackets but they are too big now. I also have musto fleecy waterproof chaps which used to be too small but now fit so I could actually use them. I thought rather than get a new short jacket I might try a long one as I find my thighs get cold and chilblains.

@Doodle92 I find the fleece lined waterproof breeches are great for shopping chilblains, at least in part because they keep my legs dry when I wipe wet hands on them - I know I shouldn't but I do it without thinking.
