No need to envy equestrian style, look no further than Georgian Dollar

I’ve said countless times that as much as I love dressing up, I often feel most at home in a pair of jodhpurs, with my socks pulled up over the top, and my deck shoes thrown on. Whilst I love digging out stylish outfits, I prefer being muddy and dirty, out on the yard with the horses, or playing in the countryside.


Welcome back Darlings! I hope you are all well. Life is starting to return to a more ‘normal’ now, and I hope with this you are all doing ok. I’ve taken a little r&r time myself, to refocus on the real life, and the right now. I am definitely feeling a bit better for it.
Tonight’s launch is an equestrian theme, and I am so excited to get into this one!

Horses are the biggest part of my life and have been my passion and focus since I started riding. I work within the equine industry, having gone to university and graduated with a Degree and Masters in Equestrian fields. Despite working within the industry, my time at the yard is precious and limited, my job is full on, meaning that although I get to talk horses all day every day, time with my own is largely reduced. Lots of you reading this blog will be here from some form of CCL social media channels, and although I don’t post every single minute of being at the yard, it doesn’t mean it isn’t my whole life.

I have been following the journey of Georgian Dollar for quite some time now, and I love what they stand for, and how far the brand has come already. Georgian Dollar was founded in 2018 by Amanda, who owns 4 ex polo ponies, and her daughters pony, who the brand is named after.
Amanda had her sights set on producing a pair of equestrian jeans that would be practical and durable, but also suitable for any and all occasions.

‘For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for horses. I will never forget the first pony I ever rode, I was five years old and from the moment I sat in that saddle, I was hooked!’ – Amanda, Georgian Dollar.

I have been trying out a couple of the Georgian Dollar products, and I am now so excited to share these products with you, and let you know my thoughts! As always, I write honestly about the products I review, so please rest assured that these are my genuine thoughts and have in no way been influenced! Life is too short to write about things you don’t like or don’t enjoy, there is genuine passion and enthusiasm when I talk about these, and I hope you are able to see how much I am enjoying them, and just how fantastic they are.

Let’s have a closer look 😍 ….


Sieta Equestrian Jeans

‘For women who hack out, muck out and go out!’

I’ve had my eye on these equestrian jeans for a while now. I like my riding clothes to be practical, durable and just easy to throw on. Me attending the yard is by no means a fashion show, however, I am a sucker for style (you might have guessed), and although no one ever sees me at the yard, I like to wear riding clothes that make ME feel good. I think style should be less about what you look like to others, and more about how you look to yourself, and how clothes makes yourself feel – I absolutely live for feel good clothing.

The Sieta Equestrian Jeans were created with comfort, durability and style in mind. They feature Lycra ankle cuffs, so they are extremely easy to get on and off, and this allows for the best, non-bulky fit in your boots. There is a discreet silicone grip seat, which is functional and practical, whilst not drawing and distracting the eye, especially if you wear the jeans outside of the yard.

They also feature a five pocket design, with zip fly and button fastening. The jeans are finished off with embroidered Georgian Dollar branding. The jeans have been made from a blend of cotton and Lycra, to create a soft and stretchy denim, for maximum comfort.

You know that I love to properly try and test products before reviewing them, so that I can see if they actually stand up to the lifestyle that they will be put through. I have loved road testing these equestrian jeans to see how they stand up to the Summer we are currently having.

Ok so these jeans have SO much stretch! Seriously, so much stretch. We’ve all ridden in normal jeans before, and know all too well that slightly uncomfortable pinch you tend to get from them. I was really interested to see if there would feel like there was any restriction or pinch with these GD jeans. They felt soft and comfortable on, but I was excited to see if they remained that way whilst riding. I can confirm, YES. THEY. DO. They really are super soft and stretchy, meaning that for all yard activities, and for riding, they really do provide maximum comfort.

I also wore them in a lot of the warmer weather we have been having, to see how they would hold up in the heat, and whether I would be dying to just get them off, or if they would remain comfortable. They remained extremely comfortable throughout, it didn’t matter what the temperature was. This is so important, there is absolutely nothing worse than overheating due to your clothing when riding, us riders need our clothing to work for us, not against us, and these equestrian jeans offer exactly that.

The belt loops are wide enough to fit a variety of belts through, including the width of a polo belt, meaning not only practical, but stylish too. I could fit my phone/keys in the pockets, which again I find really handy at the yard. The Lycra round the ankles meant there were no uncomfortable seams in my boots, for me this is really key as I broke one of my ankles and any prominent seams can rub against the scar causing some discomfort – none of that here!

I suppose the only thing I was slightly worried about with these jeans was the fit of the waist. I am guilty of always buying higher waisted jeans to ‘hold everything in’ – but my goodness these are so flattering – there was absolutely no need to worry. They really are a slim, flattering fit, which made me feel comfortable and confident in them. I took one size up from my usual size, but there is a detailed size guide available on the Sieta Equestrian Jeans page, where you are able to check the measurements to ensure the best fit.

I really love these equestrian jeans. They have been so carefully designed and planned, and that really comes across in the final product. They are super comfortable for wearing round the yard and riding in, and the features are discreet enough to make these suitable for wearing outside of the yard too. I really like the colour of the denim, and they are cool enough to wear in warmer weather conditions too – your legs won’t absolutely bake if you ride in these in the summer. They have well and truly won me over with both the comfort and style aspects that pull these equestrian jeans together so well.

These jeans are machine washable, I have washed mine several times now and they wash incredibly well – no worries there!

There is also a white pair of equestrian jeans available, these are the Regalita Equestrian Jeans. These are available to view here.


The GD Polo Belt

‘Stunningly unique sky blue colour’

You will probably find a polo belt in every equestrians wardrobe, they are a staple, combining style, practicality and colour coordination, but do you know their history?

Referred to as the ‘Sport of Kings’, Polo has been around for many thousands of years. As with many other sports, polo has a team uniform, and the iconic Argentine polo belts were stitched in team colours, to help identify team players from one another. Now highly sought after, polo belts have become a staple in many wardrobes, including that of Prince William!

With its traditional polo belt styling, this hand stitched belt has been created in a beautiful sky blue. The belt is made from a beautifully soft and luxurious saddle leather, in dark brown, with the subtle Georgian Dollar branding to the end of the belt. These belts are made in Argentina.

A couple of these belts that I have had before, not made to as good quality, have been very stiff, and due to the thickness of the belt this can then create some discomfort. However, the GD polo belt is beautifully flexible, providing comfort with style.

Due to the soft leather of these belts, they are perfect to wear with your breeches, creating a classic equestrian look. Outside of the yard, your polo belt can be teamed with absolutely anything. For men, team with jeans or chino shorts, paired with a shirt for a classic country look. For the females, why not team with a denim skirt or white trousers to show off the stylish, vibrant colour of the belt.

Available in 4 sizes: 80cm, 85cm, 90cm & 95cm.
These measurements are taken from where the buckle joins the leather, from the first to the last of the 5 holes. Georgian Dollar recommend that your measure your waist and add one inch, to ensure an accurate fit. I measured against one of my current belts that fits well to find my best fit.
These are suitable for men or women.

The GD Baseball Cap

‘Created for comfort and durability’

Not only highly practical at the yard, but also stylish, a baseball cap is an essential buy for any equestrian. How many times have you been trying to keep the sun, hair or rain off your face, or hiding a hairstyle from hell? For most of us, the baseball cap has become a little bit of a saviour for everything from bad hair days, to bad weather.

The Georgian Dollar Baseball Cap is made from 100% Gabardine cotton, with a banded, ribbed inside and an adjustable buckle clasp for the perfect fit.
The cap is in a striking turquoise, with a contrasting GD logo embroidered on the front.

For me, it’s the beautiful colour of this baseball cap that is the complete selling point for me. It is the perfect summer colour.

One size fits all.

The GD Base Layer

Base layers serve an important purpose, and have become a firm favourite in every equestrians wardrobe. Designed originally as a ‘second skin’ to wick away moisture quickly from the body, allowing suitable temperate regulation and comfort. Base layers have now become a stylish statement, with bright colours available for the perfect colour coordinated outfit.

A newly launched product by Georgian Dollar is this striking base layer. Designed with regulating and moisture wicking technologies, to ensure comfort whatever the temperature, this base layer has considered the needs of the rider, above all else. The base layer has been designed with a flattering fit in mind, and comes in a distinctive blue and white colour combination. Featuring a high collar design, and Georgian Dollar branding.

I am yet to try out the Georgian Dollar Base Layer, but judging by the quality of the three products I have tested, I have extremely high hopes for the quality and practicality of this item. I love the colour so I this is going to be on the shopping list for me!

Available in sizes XS (6-8) to XL (14-16).
