As fall weather settles in, it’s time to stash the t-shirts and shorts and fill your closet with warmer, comfier clothing. For equestrian riders, though, finding cozy, stylish and functional pieces that you can wear both in and out of the saddle isn’t always easy. Most equestrians wear athletic attire that’s more suited to running or a yoga class than the wear and tear that comes with the equestrian lifestyle. This gap in the equestrian fashion market was something that then-17-year-old Kaelyn Kennedy, a long-time equestrian rider, noticed and wanted to fill. So, in 2017, she founded TKEQ, which offers a range of equestrian outerwear, athletic pieces, accessories and sweaters, like the new-for-fall/winter 2022 Knit Sweater ($115). The oversized design features cuffed sleeves and extra length in the body for maximum comfort and flexibility, whether you’re competing, out for a leisurely ride or not around the stables at all.

Available at two locations in the Calgary area and at tkeqtheshop.com
