Stock pins have long been an essential accessory for riders participating in dressage, eventing, showing, and hunting disciplines. Their purpose is to secure self-tied or pre-tied stock securely while adding an aesthetic flourish to an ensemble. Stock pins come with various embellishments available so that riders can create the desired look they are after.
These decorative stock pins come in an assortment of designs to complement any browband perfectly. Crafted by hand-etching and cutting for superior quality and detail, each decorative pin can either be integrated into the browband itself or worn alone as a standalone pin.
Dressage stock pins can often be seen adorned with sparkling crystal embellishments or faux semi-precious stones and come in a range of shapes and sizes. Some styles feature fox or horseshoe motifs to match with classic traditional dressage attire.
Stock pins were initially worn by hunters as an emergency precaution in case of an accident; should an accident happen, they could act as a sling for horse legs or support an arm in need. Today, they remain an integral part of formal equestrian wardrobes in honor of their historical use.
Tieing a stock can be accomplished easily with practice. The first step involves crossing one end over the other, then folding it back down over your right shoulder before over your neck again with another pass over your left shoulder for an ‘over-under’ knot that you then fluff and position accordingly until both tails meet up to your liking.
Due to a declining knowledge base in stock-tieing among younger riders, ready-tied stocks have become more and more popular. Attached at the back of the neck using Velcro, these ready-tied stocks help riders skip learning how to tie reserves themselves. Often, embellished, ready-tied stores contribute to dressage’s ‘bling culture.’
Some riders prefer the simplicity of a classic plain, polka dot, or checked stock in subdued colors, while others may embellish their store with an extravagant pin to show their passion for riding.
