What is the standard production time for a jockey silks order?
The standard production time for one set of jockey silks is approximately two weeks. This time can vary depending on the time of year you are placing your order.

I am a new horse owner, what else do I need in addition to jockey silks?
Your needs will vary depending on several factors, like how many horses you have, the weather where your horses are stabled, if you race in multiple locations and the equipment your trainer might already have, etc. For starters, we recommend getting more than one set of jockey silks if you have multiple horses or plan to race at more than one racetrack. It is also a good idea to order blinkers for your horse(s)in the event they require them. We suggest also considering the type of horse blankets your thoroughbred will need throughout the changing seasons. We are happy to help guide you through the process if you are new to horse racing or are unsure of your exact equipment needs. If you would prefer, we can work directly with your trainer to determine what equipment you require. All of our products can be made to match and coordinate perfectly to your colors and custom logo or lettering.

We specialize in designing and making the highest quality custom jockey silks and horse racing apparel in the industry. All of our custom products are made to coordinate perfectly with each other, and will have you and your horses looking your best!

Additional coordinating items include:
Blinkers
Horse Blankets
Saddle Towels
