Proper Attire

Long pants are required (preferably jodhpurs). No Capri’s or shorts are allowed, thin soled boots with a heel. Preferably not a cowboy boot as they slip and make it hard to keep your foot in the proper position. Helmets are not required but are highly recommended, as are gloves as the rider progresses in their riding.

All long hair must be pulled back out of face in preferably a braid or pony tail.

Proper attire not only improves your riding, but it also shows respect for the sport and pride in your appearance.

Here are a couple of our favorite websites to find the appropriate riding attire. If you have any questions please feel free to talk to our instructors.
