Horse riding boots.

Appropriate Footwear

When gearing up for a summer horseback ride, it’s essential to wear proper footwear. Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes with a small heel to prevent your foot from slipping through the stirrup. Boots or riding shoes are ideal to provide the necessary support and protection for your feet while riding through various terrains. However, if riding-specific shoes are not available, other durable shoes should work well.

Horse riding hat.

Sun & Eye Protection

With the Florida sun beating down, you must protect yourself from harmful UV rays. Pack a wide-brimmed hat to shield your face and neck from sunburn. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen with a high SPF to exposed skin before your group horseback riding trip to prevent sun damage. Sunglasses are also recommended to protect your eyes from glare and debris along the trail.


Hydration Essentials

Staying hydrated while you’re riding with our Pink Flamingo Stables team is essential! Carry a durable water bottle to sip on along the way and consider bringing electrolyte tablets to replenish minerals your body loses through sweating. Pack light, hydrating snacks like fruits or nuts to keep your energy levels up throughout the ride.

Bug spray.

Insect Repellent

As you venture through the lush trail landscapes, pesky insects like mosquitoes and flies may be prevalent. Be sure to pack insect repellent to ward off unwanted bug bites and ensure a more comfortable ride. If you are going out with your own personal horse, you may want to look for a repellent that is safe for both you and your horse to use while out on the trail.

First aid kit.

First Aid Kit

Be prepared with a basic first aid kit for both yourself and your horse! If you go for a solo ride this summer, pack essentials like bandages, antiseptic wipes, and pain relievers to address minor injuries or ailments. Familiarize yourself with the contents of the kit before setting out on your ride to ensure you can quickly respond to any unexpected situations.
