Horse Riding Socks: Finding the Perfect Fit

As equestrians, we know the importance of having the right gear to ensure a comfortable and safe ride. One often overlooked item is horse riding socks. But, did you know that finding the perfect fit for your socks can make all the difference? 

For those of us who are not blessed with long, slender calves, finding the right size and flexibility can be a challenge. That's why Coolhorse was established - to design socks that cater to various sizes! As a mid-size individual standing at 6ft tall, I used to struggle to find horse riding socks that fit me correctly. They were either too tight or would slide down my leg during a ride. 

Coolhorse's socks work by incorporating a jacquard pattern into the leg, ensuring that the design doesn't fade away when stretched out. Depending on the intricacy of the design and yarn colours, the stretch may differ from one sock to the other. 

However, I have listed some of my favourite designs below that I frequently wear and have excellent flexibility, is wear a size Large- I am a UK size 8 shoe.
