Zippers on equestrian apparel should run both ways.

Zippers are super, especially on workout wear. But what about horseback riding gear?

This is a real pet peeve of mine.

Isn’t it frustrating to climb aboard a horse and have a jacket or vest zipper bunch all up in front? 

Sure, if the weather is warm enough, you can unzip the outer layer a bit for breathing room. But for a colder ride, this can be a real issue.

Here’s the fix, and it’s easy. It’s almost a no-brainer, but too many equestrian apparel manufacturers don’t seem to get it.

OK, many do. But lots don't.

Why can’t the zippers on clothing for horseback riders always be two-way zippers? How handy it would be, if every coat, hoodie, jacket, or vest could zip open at the bottom?

Half-zip tops don’t have this problem. But full-zip garments? C’mon, now.

Seriously? It’s that simple.
