Riding Habit

Riding Habit
Dated 1909. By this time, riding habits became less fitted than Victorian habits had been. The tight fitting short bodice of the 19th century had grown longer into a looser fitting riding jacket.Riding became more comfortable, as clothes were looser fitting enabling you to move better with the horse (note how the new fashionable longer riding jacket in this photo hangs off the side of the horse). Corsets were still worn but by this time, straight fronted corsets were worn.
