Riding equipment - what do I need?
The most important piece of equipment for any horse rider is a well fitted riding helmet. You should also consider a safety vest or back protector, this is especially important for children as they spend a lot of time on their ponies jumping and playing but they are also important for riders who event or show jump. Correct footwear around horses is also a crucial piece of equipment. Whether you wear short boots or jodhpur boots and chaps or tall boots, you should always wear the right riding boots when putting your foot in the stirrups. Other essentials for riding in comfort are breeches as well as gloves for protecting your hands. Functional shirts and base layers also offer the advantage of being quick drying and breathable allowing you to ride in comfort, even on hot days. Whips and spurs are also used to provide support to the riders aids, however they are not recommended for beginners.
