Can You Spare A Pair? We Need Your Clothes!

Time and again, our generous equestrian community has come through for the riders we serve, and we are so appreciative!

After a really busy summer at The Rider’s Closet, our inventory is running low on several essential pieces of show attire.

We’re hoping you have some gently used riding gear you’re ready to pass along to our program. We’ll make sure it gets into the hands of deserving fellow riders.

The Rider’s Closet accepts donations of new and gently used riding attire and provides it to equestrians of all ages and at every level of horsemanship. Your support helps make working with horses more inclusive and accessible.

We are currently out of stock in apparel most requested by the age groups we serve:

  • Ladies’ tan show-quality breeches, sizes 22R-28R
  • Ladies’ navy or black show coats, sizes 0-6
  • Ladies’ long-sleeve white show shirts, XS and S
  • Ladies’ black show gloves, all sizes

We also welcome any other ladies’, men’s or youth show or schooling apparel you have to send. All of it will go to great new homes. For safety reasons, the only items we cannot accept are helmets and protective vests. We also do not accept horse apparel.

Founded by Georgina Bloomberg in 2006, The Rider’s Closet became an EQUUS Foundation program in 2019. Recipients of Rider’s Closet apparel include equestrians from scholastic riding programs, pony clubs, veterans programs, therapeutic riding centers, equestrian camp programs, equine charities, programs for disadvantaged youth, and individual riders in need. All donations to The Rider’s Closet are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Our list of recipients grows every year, and our ability to serve them is only possible because generous riders and equestrian apparel companies keep the donations coming!
