Horse Riding Equipment






Jeans or riding britches, 2 pair. Jeans should have a smooth seam on the inside of the legs and should fit so there are no big wrinkles or bunches around your knees or on the leg. Wrangler Q-Baby women's jeans are a new option that are fantastic, as are Aura by Wrangler. There are also several types of riding britches that are fitted smooth to the body that won't gather or bunch. Any kind that does that will cause chafing and  "hot spots" around the knees and thighs.  *Special tip: thong underwear are not recommended ;) / BW


Cowboy boots or riding boots, with slick soles and a moderate riding heel. English riding boots are acceptable. Leather soles are preferred, but are hard to come by, so a smooth sole of rubber is okay, like a paddock boot.  Please do not bring any other footwear for riding. Roper brand  "Horseshoes" and Ariat brand light hiking-style boots that are advertised as riding boots (NOT!), anything with a lug sole, and any type of shoe are not acceptable. True riding boots have smooth soles so you can grip the stirrup without your foot sticking and plenty of heel so they won't go through the front of the stirrup. They may not be the best for walking, but you will be riding with them and safety dictates that only a true riding boot be used.
