Prep List

If you’re planning a horseback riding adventure, there are a few items you’ll want to make sure you have before you head out. A good pair of Riding Boots is essential, as they will provide you with the necessary support and grip while in the saddle. A Riding Helmet is also a must-have to protect your head in case of a fall. Breeches or Riding Pantskpack will help prevent chafing and provide added comfort while riding. Riding Gloves will protect your hands from blisters and provide additional grip on the reins. A Saddle Pad will help keep your horse comfortable during the ride, and a Grooming Kit and Hoof Pick will allow you to care for your horse before and after the ride. A Riding Crop can be useful to provide additional cues to your horse, but should be used sparingly and only when necessary. Don’t forget to bring a Water Bottle Holder to keep you hydrated during the ride, and a Fanny Pack or Bac to store any other essentials you may need on the trail. 

When heading out for a horseback riding adventure, it’s important to dress appropriately for the weather and wear layers that can be easily removed or added as needed. Comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing and a good pair of socks will also help ensure your comfort during the ride. And remember, safety always comes first – never ride without a helmet and always follow the instructions of your guide or instructor. With the right equipment and mindset, horseback riding can be a truly unforgettable experience.
