When you ride for the first time, keep in mind that the clothing you wear  around horses affects your safety. This fact may not seem obvious at first, but your apparel can protect you from errant hooves, falls to the ground, and nasty chafing.


Helmets are the most important part of your wardrobe if you plan to ride. In the event of a fall, a helmet is the only thing between your skull and the hard ground. So always wear a helmet when you ride!

We are happy to loan you a riding helmet for a few lessons, but we always prefer riders have their own personal helmet to ensure a perfect fit for ideal safety.



The second item to purchase now is a pair of riding boots. Riding boots should have a significant heel to prevent your foot from slipping completely through the stirrup. Never wear sneakers when riding or working with horses. They are slippery in the stirrup, and they provide absolutely no protection if you are stepped on.

Safety vests:

If you plan to continue horse riding or start to jumping, a safety vest is a worthwhile investment!
