The Harry Potter fandom is one of the largest and most passionate in the world, spanning generations and cultures. It’s no surprise, then, that fans of the beloved fantasy universe are finding creative ways to express their love for the realm of wizardry.
One new trend gaining popularity is for professional horse riders to wear Harry Potter-inspired clothing during competitions. From Hogwarts house-themed jackets and breeches to Quidditch-inspired helmets and boots, riders are finding ways to incorporate their fandom into their equestrian attire.
There are (turns out) numerous reasons why riders might choose to wear Harry Potter clothing during competitions. For some, it’s a way to show their personality and express their unique way of horse riding. For others, it’s a way to connect with other riders who share their love of the same house. And for another group, it’s simply a way to have a little fun and make themselves ride with a wide smile.
Whatever the reason, there’s no doubt that Harry Potter-inspired equestrian attire is an eye-catching way to stand out from the crowd. And who knows, maybe it will even give riders a little extra luck in the competition ring!
Here are a few examples of Harry Potter-inspired equestrian attire that riders have been wearing:
- Hogwarts-inspired jackets and breeches
- Quidditch-based helmets
- T-shirts with symbols from the Harry Potter universe
- Riding hats with Harry Potter-themed accessories
- Spurs and other riding decorations with Harry Potter designs
In addition to wearing Harry Potter-inspired clothing, some riders also take their fandom to the next level by decorating their horses with Harry Potter-themed tack. For example, some equestrians have painted their horses’ faces like Harry’s owl, Hedwig or Voldemort’s snake Nagini. Others have braided their horses’ manes and tails into the colours of their Hogwarts house.
If you wish to be part of this beautiful trend, you can find your choice of Harry Potter clothes and show the other horse riders who is boss!
