So how do you like your jeans? For polo players, getting a quality pair of equestrian bottoms secures a comfortable ride, whether you’re doing practice chukkers or hyping it up on an actual tournament. And of course, as ladies, we want our pairs to be stylish—after all, these qualities should come together, right?
Search far and wide, or not—your jean problems can be solved easily with a click of a button. UK Equestrian Jean brand Georgian Dollar makes it possible for every POLO LADY to sport fashionable and super comfy jean pairs. Founder Amanda Dowie saw the opportunity of creating her own line back when she was still residing in Dubai.
“I struggled to find a comfortable pair of equestrian jeans to ride in,” she explains how the idea of the brand came about. After an 18-month process of securing a product that she’s proud to say fits what riders would want, she launched Georgian Dollar in July 2019. It’s been a hit in the equestrian field since.
Currently, they offer three jean lines—the Siesta Jeans, the Regalita Jeans, and the Tita range. All named after her horses (even the brand’s name is inspired by her daughter’s pony!), her passion for horses and riding is fully integrated into her business.
“It was a true labor of love. I was driven by a passion to create jeans that offered ultimate comfort, durability, and quality, on or off the horse,” Amanda says.
The denim blue Siesta Jeans are versatile jeans that provide the ultimate comfort. Meanwhile, the Regalita Jeans are made of crisp white denim that’s universally flattering on any figure.
Their recent collection called the Tita range comes in black with a red stripe down the side.
All jeans feature a discrete functional silicone grip, a stylish five-pocket design, smooth Lycra ankle cuffs to allow for a non-bulky fit, zip fly, and button fastening, together with embroidered Georgian Dollar branding.
“When designing all my jeans, I really wanted to make sure that the rider had free movement but that they also stayed in place, held their shape, and looked fabulous on and off the horse! All my polo player friends and customers always come back for a second pair as they love riding in them so much!” Amanda exclaims.
Apart from jeans, Georgian Dollar also houses a stunning range of polo belts, a warm and cozy hoodie, a stunning base layer, a baseball cap, and an equestrian jacket. It’s become a one-stop-shop for all your wardrobe needs!
But it isn’t all business for Amanda, as Georgian Dollar is also a proud partner of the non-profit organization Polo Pastures. “I had been wanting to find a charity that I felt a real synergy with,” she tells POLO LADY.
“I have such a huge passion for polo ponies, as I truly believe that they are the unsung heroes of the horse world. I saw so many ponies over my years in Dubai that were discarded just because their polo careers were over, when I knew that these horses could go on to be amazing all-rounders. The work that Polo Pastures does is incredible. As soon as I read about them and spoke to Sarah, who runs the charity, I knew it was the perfect match!” she added.
“When you purchase from Georgian Dollar, you know that you are supporting a small business built out of a passion for supreme quality riding clothing. You will also be supporting the wonderful Polo Pastures charity! In addition, each and every customer becomes an integral part of the Georgian Dollar family—every purchase truly means the world,” the founder adds.
There’s more to look forward to this brand, as Amanda and her team are cooking great things for the future. At the moment, they’re working on a fabulous new line that you should watch out for—we know we will!
