Discussion of attire:

DO wear: Footwear with some form of a heel (this helps stop the foot from sliding through the stirrup). Since riding involves all types of weather, muck boots (or some type of rubber boot) is best (hiking boots tend to be too thick and cumbersome to ride comfortably in). Long pants or chaps, regular shirt, other attire as dictated by weather. Riding helmet (required when mounted). We have helmets available for you, but recommend each rider invest in their own hat.

DON'T wear: During the summer, tank tops should not be worn (protect your skin!). In cold weather, long scarves should be tucked in.  Jewelry should be kept to a minimum when riding. Long earrings and rings with stone settings are not allowed.
