We create beautiful and exclusive silk riding stocks. Hand-designed and made by the Silk Route in Scotland, our stocks bring style to the hunting field, dressage, eventing, cross-country and all other equestrian activities.


All our stocks are hand made in the Scottish Borders using only the best quality of silk. Our stocks can be spotted at competitions from PC/RC up to International level, all around the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Our stocks are worn by many of the countrys leading riders.


Our Stocks come in two styles:


For those who like a traditional look we have our SELF TIE STOCKS . These come in a fantastic range of plain colours, beautiful embroideries, and for that special competition some amazing beaded designs.

Also included in this range is our traditional Wool/Silk mix Hunting Stock ......perfect for those cold hunting days!


For those who prefer hassle free READY TIED STOCKS. We have two styles, our traditional crossed style and our new straight style. These can all be made in the same fantastic range of silks as our self tie stocks.

If you like a touch of sparkle then look out for our fantastic range of Swarovski Crystal Stocks.


Our stocks come gift boxed, making the perfect present for all horse riding enthusiasts.

Where The Silk Route Began...

The Silk Route was originally created in 1988 by Claire Hislop, designing and manufacturing handmade dresses and special occasion wear.  After twenty years in the fashion industry, Claire began making silk stocks, with her eye and experience for beautiful silk materials and colour. Claire had always been interested in equestrianism and having looked and struggled to find quality stocks, she felt there was an opening for a market for them. In 2008 Claire started a website and began attending shows. From there on, the business has grown, and as well as being able to purchase from the website, there are plenty of stockists all around the country. Please visit our stockists page to find out more.
