Original Mountain Horse Winter Jacket
Western Casual Apparel



Manufacturer: Mountain Horse
Model: Original Mountain Horse Winter Jacket
Category: Western Casual Apparel

Purchase: This jacket was purchased online from Dover Saddlery. I live in a northern climate and was tired of having to bundle up in order to enjoy riding in winter. Clothing that is not made for riding tends to bunch, pinch and ride up. I paid $149.90 for it, plus shipping.

Likes: This jacket is like a dream. Instead of a canvas/duck work jacket that bunches and rides up making you look like a potato on your horse, this jacket is fit for riding. The back has a flap to leave open for riding and snaps shut for wearing around town. The front zipper begins higher at the waist, once again, no bunching. The sleeves are plenty long-I have extra-long arms and these go all the way to the gloves (no more freezing wrists). Zippers under the arms and vents on the back give you ventilation without having to open the zipper in front. A handy zipper pocket on the outside front for a cell phone is well-placed; you can hear the phone ring and access it quickly. The jacket is extremely warm without bulk. I have ridden in ten degree weather comfortably, and actually was a little warm! This jacket is well-worth the money; being able to ride comfortably all winter will be a treat this year. I fully expect to have it for many years, it is very heavy duty and easy to wipe dust off of when I am done at the barn and going to a store on the way home, no changing coats anymore. Plus it is really good looking, well-fitted for a woman's shape.

Dislikes: There isn't a thing I don't like. It is 100% well made-durability, construction and fit all exceeded my expectations.

Quality: This jacket is made to work. You don't have to worry about brushing a bolt on the outside of a fence and ripping it. It has heavy duty zippers, snaps and material. But it is cut to fit like a jacket you'd wear on a daily basis (like I do). There are tons of zip pockets for your stuff. The other thing I like about it is it is quiet, I don't like winter clothes that are noisy or "freeze" stiff in cold weather. This one has quiet fabric that stays flexible in freezing weather. I only wear one sweatshirt under it and am plenty warm in near zero temperatures.

Summary: This jacket is worth every penny paid for it because it is three coats in one: a working barn coat, a riding coat and an everyday all around coat. I can't say enough positive things about it. This jacket will give me at least three extra months of riding time this year.
