Leather riding belts are wonderful accessories to your riding apparel. When buying a leather riding belt for yourself or as a gift, the belt should be purchased in standard colors of brown or black. This is especially important if the leather riding belt is going to be used during formal competitions. Every leather riding belt will be designed with its own buckles. A shiny brass or silver buckle can be chosen to complement your dressage jacket. Leather riding belts are very affordable at $25 to $35 for a 24-inch belt.
