What do you all wear as an all rounder?

I am looking for warm clothing for my dd and I to wear down the yard. Ideally it will be good for grooming in, riding in and just larking about in

thank you

Bronte jackets are popular on our yard (the gilrs like to have them personalised...)

I always had a Bronte jacket when I was younger. Only seem to see them for sale at shows though but probably available online now. Otherwise the outdoor shops have good brands at better prices than the horsey brands or TK Maxx is a good bet for cheap ski jackets so super warm!

I used to have a Bronte jacket but it did tend to ride up at the back which was a bit chilly! I don't think it was the wrong size as my sister had one which did the same thing.

I've got a Harry Hall jacket that's a couple of years old now but keeps me warm and dry whatever the weather. Can sometimes be a bit too warm for grooming etc but atm it's perfect!

I love Harry Hall - lasts for years and really does the job. I picked up a secondhand Harry Hall jacket for DD from Ebay for £5 last week. It looks like new and is really warm, it is even smart enough for school.

Yes I've got a lot of Harry Hall stuff and never been disappointed in it. I also find that their hats somehow seem to be the right shape for my head whereas some other makes just don't feel comfy. My coat is also smart enough for public use (my neighbour remarked the other day how nice it looked) when it is clean! I've just carried a torn rug along from the field so it is now totally filthy. Horses eh? Ever wonder why you bother?

Oops, not sure why public was in italics there!

Wear what you like. Harry hall are fabulous and both my dcs have them for general winter use, ( am obsessed with not having cold damp kids!) but I always feel that new tack shop clothes are too good for generally milling about at the yard in!! We wear old stuff so it doesn't matter if it gets ruined.
My one and only tip though is: fleece and horsehair is a bad combination. You'll spend for evermore looking like a yeti!! grin

Fleece as first layer, Harry Hall coats on top, Muck boots with wellie warmers inside, 2 layers of gloves (fingerless underneath) and a huge hat, and we're all toastie!

I used to have one of those checked shirts with quilted lining that I wore like a jacket for mucking out and grooming. It was great as it was warm but the hair didn't stick to it, much better than a fleece.
