Following hounds on horse back through the beautiful countryside is a sport which has captured the hearts of many through the centuries. From the young to the old, hunting creates a lifestyle for many country lovers, bringing together a passion which has held together many generations.
A hunt coat is a piece of equestrian clothing to last you a lifetime. A tradition that's filled with history and passion brings etiquette and clothing to feel and look the part. Whether you are on the search for a women’s hunt jacket or a men’s hunt jacket, a traditional wool hunt coat is the answer for those chilly days out on the field.
Etiquette and attire is an important part of the sport and there is no doubt that the turnout of the rider needs to be exceptional. Unless you are high up in the hunting fraternity and have been awarded your 'hunt button' you don’t want to be seen wearing a red hunt coat; a black or navy wool hunt jacket such as the Caldene Roxburgh Hunt Coat keeps the chill out on those cold winter mornings.
The Caldene Wessex Men’s and Ladies Jacket and the Dogwood Hunt Jacket have been made to make an impression on the hunting ground.
