Summer is such a fun time of the year! The weather is perfect, people are out and about, outdoor concerts are happening, get to ride outside, travel to shows, the list goes on and on. This is why I love having pieces in my wardrobe that can be worn for both riding and everyday hanging out. Noble Equestrian, just like Goode Rider in my previous review, is another GREAT brand for this. Their tops are super versatile and cute, much like the Lil' Lover Tank that I’m going to cover in this review. I paired it with the Noble Equestrian Full Seat Balance Riding Tight.
The Lil’ Lover Tank can be worn for basically anything, riding, working out, running errands, or walking your nieces and nephew around the block 😉. The scoop neck and drape design give it a unique, feminine look. It has a flattering fit with flat seams, fashionable layered cut, and two-tone color design. I love that it is a looser fitting shirt but at the same time flattering. Sometimes loose-fitting shirts do NOT hit the mark, but rest assured this one DOES. The back draping allows for extra ventilation through the keyhole opening while still offering plenty of coverage. It’s a great top that you can dress up or down, for my walk it looked great with light jeans and sneakers. But you could go to a show, wear to warm-up and fit right in with the English or Western crowd.
I got the Teal Heather color, which is mixed with a light and dark teal to give it a cool contrasting look. Made from 92% Polyester/8% Spandex Micro Polyester Jersey with Opti-Dry technology, it wicks moisture away keeping you cool while working hard. Some additional features include the reflective Noble Equestrian logo, contrasting color seams, UPF 50+ protection and you can throw it in the washing machine without having to worry about it shrinking.
I completed my outfit with the Noble Equestrian Full Seat Balance Riding Tight. This is one of Noble’s staple pieces they carry from season to season. They also have a knee patch version of this popular breech. Made from 76% Supplex
Nylon/24% Spandex Jersey, these are super soft, breathable and stretch with your every move. The comfort 4-way stretch Supplex Nylon gives you that feel of cotton, but allows for more airflow, dries quicker, and is more flexible. They also have the Opti-Dry technology, allowing you to stay dry and comfortable in the saddle. LADIES they have booty boost technology so you will definitely be feeling yourself in these breeches. Some other features in the fabric include UPF 50+ sun protection, lightweight and no matter how many times you wash, this never fade fabric will keep them looking like brand new. If you didn’t’ catch it, that means they’re machine washable, whoop whoop!
The FS Balance Riding Tight boasts so many great features! The flat seams, lightweight material, and sock bottom make them easy to wear all day long, riding or not. The bottom of the leg reaches right above my ankle, I put some Noble peddies on(of course!) and I’m all set. No bunching or bulk to deal with! The silicone full seat grip is a whimsical pattern of horseshoes and Noble “N” logo, which is cute and subtle, yet still gets the job done in the saddle. What I really like about these breeches is the stash pocket on the front thigh. I was able to put Pandora on, jam out to some music, while knowing my phone was safe and secure in that pocket. I didn’t t have to worry about it falling out while I was grooming or riding because it has a flap to keep it in. Other key features include hidden pocket inside the back waist, reflective logo, wide waistband with belt loops and extra loop at left hip.
I’m wearing a size Medium in the Lil’ Lover Tank and as mentioned above, in Teal Heather. I am usually a M in tops, so it does run true to size. You can find this on our site in colors Teal Heather, Dragonfruit, and Heather Grey from sizes XS-XXL. Shop it here.
For the Full Seat Balance Riding Tight, I am also wearing a size Medium. If you look at the size chart below, that falls onto a size 28-29 waist which is exactly what I am. Again, runs true to size and with the stretchy material you’re sure to find your perfect fit. These tights are available in Asphalt, Brown, and Black and sizes XS-XXL. You can find it here.
