What to Wear

It's important to dress appropriately for horseback riding lessons, so make sure you wear comfortable, form-fitting clothing that won't get caught in the horse's tack. Long pants are ideal, or you can purchase the appropriate breeches and jodhpurs from our pro shop. Avoid loose-fitting items like long skirts and dresses — the horse may be spooked by the flapping fabric. We also recommend you wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes like horseback riding boots or sneakers.

What to Bring

Bring all your horseback riding gear with you for the lesson, including a helmet, gloves, and boots. If you don't have any horseback riding equipment, no worries! Our riding lessons include helmets, horse tack, and rider equipment. Additionally, make sure you bring a water bottle and sunscreen with you to stay hydrated and protected from the sun.

During the Lesson

The horse will be led by an instructor who knows how to handle the horse safely and effectively. When learning horseback riding, it's important to learn horse anatomy, horse care and grooming, horse health and nutrition, horse behavior, and horse safety. Our instructors will teach you the basics of horseback riding while providing feedback on your progress.
