PANTONE COLOR: 17-4028 Riverside
Two shades of blue made Pantone’s list this year and the Riverside color reminds us of the fabulous color of our 2kGrey riding breeches. Pictured are the 2kGrey Ladies Swirls Knee Patch Riding Breech which pair well with the Kerrits Ice Fil Longsleeve Shirt in White. For super cold rides, top with the Ariat Ladies Ashley Vest in Navy Houndstooth.
PANTONE COLOR 14-4122 Airy Blue
When we spotted this beautiful icy blue on Pantone’s list, we immediately thought of the amazing Kerrits Horse Sense Half Zip Riding Shirt in Denim Blue. Pair your Kerrits top with the 2kGrey Ladies Full Seat Riding Jeans by Kiya Tomlin and the Ariat Ladies Extreme Zip Paddock H20 Insulated Boot – perfect for keeping warm during barn chores.
PANTONE COLOR 17-3914 Sharkskin
To be the most stylish rider in the warm up ring at the horse show, go monochromatic in head-to-toe Sharkshin. Stay fierce and fashionable by coordinating your Kerrits Ladies Therminator Winter Riding Pant in Graphite with either the 2kGrey Ladies Boy Friend Sweat Shirt by Kiya Tomlin or the Kerrits Stretch Panel Riding Jacket in Graphite.
PANTONE COLOR 18-1550 Aurora Red
Pantone’s Aurora Red offers a welcome punch of color to your fall wardrobe. You’ll be red hot in the Ariat Ladies Altair Terry Pullover. Wear it with your Cruel Girl Slim Fit Georgia Jeans, Leather Aztec Design Belt in Pampa Red and Atlas Original Work Fit Chore or Barn Glove for a cute and comfy barn outfit.
PANTONE COLOR 16-1318 Warm Taupe
Have you seen the Kerrits Shearling Bomber Jacket? It’s absolutely gorgeous and the perfect way to incorporate the hot color of Warm Taupe into your lineup of fall horse riding clothes.

This beautiful dusty pink color reminds us of Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year, Rose Quartz. This year’s color, Dusty Cedar is a deeper and bolder shade of pink. The Ariat Ladies Lowell 1/4 Zip Top in Dahlia will chase away those winter blues. Wrap the Ariat Cable Knit Scarf around your neck and slip your feet into Kerrits Horse Sense Wool Socks in Dusk before lacing up your Ariat Ladies Heritage Compass H20 Field Boots. The Ariat Women’s Power Stretch Headband will keep your ears nice and warm while the 2kGrey Ladies WOW Knee Patch Riding Breech will keep you looking stylish with its gorgeous back pocket detail.
PANTONE COLOR 18-5845 Lush Meadow
Just because you have a dressage competition coming up, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice color. The fun Leather Woven Multi Color Chevron Belt by WOW gives your show clothing a little pop of color. Wear it with the 2kGrey Ladies Avatar Full Seat Riding Breech, RJ Classics Ladies Sterling Collection Show Shirt, Pre Tied Stock Tie and Horseware Ireland Ladies Competition Riding Jacket in Black.

The Heritage Extreme Winter Gloves are the warmest gloves we’ve ever tried and are even touchscreen friendly.

Even if winter rain is keeping you out of the saddle, you can still look cute and rock fall’s hottest color in your black t-shirt with a hint of Bodacious Purple proudly proclaiming your motto: Keep Calm and Ride On.
