Riding costumes were introduced in the 16th century, after which women wore clothing and accouterments which were built for safety and style. The line of a woman’s riding habit mirrored that of everyday fashions until the 1880s, when the severe, tailored, almost masculine cut of the habit, adorned with a top hat and veil, and cravat, became the fashion. The first “safety skirt” was invented in 1875, which buttoned along the seams to help stop the horrible accidents where women were dragged…

This cabinet card dates to the first half of the 1880's. The habit looks very much like 1880's day dress (minus the bustle), with the button up bodice and the severe look of 1880's costume. The top hat would have been made out of silk and has a spotted veil tied around the crown to feminize the look. The bodice is cut like a day bodice, but probably with slightly less boning in it and looser sleeves to allow movement when riding.
