Equestrian outfits, such as vests, jackets and skirts, have long been a staple of the women’s dress code in the UK.
But this year, they are taking centre stage as the country celebrates its centenary.
But is it all about equality?
The vests are still a fashion staple in the British equestria, says Jessica Meehan.
But a lot of the clothing that equestrials are wearing now is made with recycled material.
This is partly because it’s cheaper, but also because there are more options for the women who want to wear it.
And there are many more women who would love to wear vests than women who are wearing vests today.
“When I started, it was all about the men and boys, but I guess we have now shifted a little bit and it’s about women,” says Miss Meehtan.
One of the biggest changes for equestravestrians, she says, is the change in the gender pay gap.
“For a long time, it wasn’t that women were paid more than men for the same job,” she says.
This has become a big concern in the industry, and many equestres have been speaking out to encourage more women into the field.
Equestria Victoria is an organisation that aims to promote equestries, and is working to get more women involved in the sport.
They are also lobbying for changes to the rules that will make it easier for women to become qualified equestrains.
In a bid to encourage women to get into equestration, Equestria Queensland is working with the Women’s Equity and Equality Association to create an equestral course.
A course would be based around women’s needs, the course would also offer the chance to learn skills like carpentry and makeovers to help women make more money.
These are steps that are aimed at changing the culture in the world of equestras, says Ms Meehn.
The course will take place at the Royal Equestrians Club in Queensland’s south west.
To promote this course, Equesteia Queensland have been providing scholarships and support for students to attend.
The group also have a Women’s Equestraces website that gives advice on how to get involved and make an impact.
So is the focus on equality?
Yes, but it’s also about making sure that we all have a chance to make a positive contribution.
I think that the more women that get into the sport, the better it is for everyone.
As a woman, there are a lot more opportunities to make money, to make better decisions, and it does make a difference in terms of making sure we are making a positive impact in the workplace.
How many women are equestros?
There are more than 200 women in equestre in Australia, according to Equesteias Australian Women’s Centre.
There are also many more men and children who work in the fields of construction, quarrying and maintenance, as well as the equestrie.
Women make up just 3 per cent of the workforce in the field, says the women, but that’s because they are a minority.
