Putting Our Jodpurs To The Test With Megan Hay

When we design any new product here at Hardy Etc, we like to make sure it’s up to the job. So we thought we would test out “How Grippy” our new jodhpurs really are, what better way to test it…. without a saddle. 

So we contacted local rider Megan Hay who was up for the challenge.

“Squirt also know as Col is a 17 year old Irish pony that I brought from Leominster horse sales 9 years ago, having stopped at a cross pole. Since then has taken  me to FEI 2* eventing, newcomers show jumping and medium dressage. And stands at 14.3hh! I currently work as a Carer with children and adults with autism and will be starting university in September to study nursing. The first thing I noticed about the breeches were how comfy they are. It it so difficult to find a pair of breeches that fit well, are comfortable to wear and don’t cost more than my horse! Jumping without a saddle, it is very easy to notice the grip on different jodphurs. I found the grip on the knees helped me keep a still leg on approach to the jump and helped wonders on landing to make sure I didn’t carry on over the head! I would definitely recommend these breeches as they are everything I look for in breeches. Comfy, stylish, affordable and with a grip system that actually works!”
Thank you Megan and Col, who did a fantastic job a lot better than me, that’s for sure!
Fancy a little help staying put? why not try for yourself….
