Stock Tie Pins for Riders
The stock tie and stock tie pin have long been a staple in the competitive rider’s wardrobe. The tie, traditionally white, is most often used in dressage and sometimes, show jumping. A pin is worn just under the knot and the pin itself is usually minimal in design, though more elaborate styles have cropped up in recent times.
The history of the stock tie is hundreds of years old. It was worn out on the hunt field, shielding riders’ collars from wind and rain. It was also used for makeshift bandages or slings for human and horse limbs alike. The stock tie prevailed through the decades, becoming a fashion statement for gentlemen in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Stock tie pins have become an accessory to showcase a rider’s sense of style.
