What is the Best Sports Bra for Horse Riding? September 14 2020

40% of 1,324 women riders surveyed said they experienced breast pain while riding, with the most painful activity being the sitting trot. The study, by the University of Portsmouth and Sparsholt College, found breast pain was the fourth greatest barrier to women riding.

Claire Madden our gorgeous ambassador, winner of many HOY awards and owner of BrigideneSporthorses has written a post on "Why it's Important to Wear a Sports Bra while Riding."
