Horse Riding Pants and BootsRiding trousers and boots
Getting dressed for riding does not have to be costly, and appropriate clothes are not hard to find. While you will be able to find convenient and appropriate clothes in the shipping department of your regional Tack Store, your hat is an object you don't want to save on. Used helmets can cause invisible damages to the interior trims and do not offer the necessary level of shelter.
Select a hardhat that is appealing, convenient and appropriate for your driving style. The most important thing is to select a ASTM/SEI approved one. SEI certifications mean that the harness is specially designed for equestrian sport, and the material and designs have been thoroughly checked and approved.
Helms developed for other types of sport such as biking, downhill and cross-country riding may not offer sufficient shelter from falling from a horse. Spend a little of your free day making sure the hardhat will fit. Pitch and tremble your skull; the headgear should stay horizontal and safe. It should be fully reclineable and convenient.
Budget to expend over $50 on a goodquality helmet, and if your whole familiy is riding, every member will need a helmet that will fit them correctly. If you are planning to go to a horse show, you probably have to choose a good one. Winterscoats are for riding if you are living in an area where you have to deal with cold weather.
To make riding more pleasant in cold weather, wear a hot hat and wear riding boots. You will need appropriate clothing if you intend to show your horse. Go to some horse shows to see what others wear. Low-priced two-way pantyhose is the most convenient solution for daily use.
You can buy riding stockings with kidney and buttockings. They offer a little more traction and are made of a more robust outer layer than pantyhose, which are not suitable for riding. Winters breeches are made of warm fleeces. All you want to prevent is a pair of trousers that twists, creases or tufts along the inside of your leg and especially your elbows.
However, some folks like the added feel and in cold weather the windbreakability of riders. You will need riding pants, riding pants or other old-fashioned riding pants if you are on your way to the show ring. Are you planning to spend $50 or more for a set of riding stockings and more for riding pants or riding shorts.
Besides a hat, your boots are perhaps the most important buy. Though there are no formal tests or standard for boots, you will want to find a couple with about 1 to 1 in. and low profile of ½ heels. Many walking and snow boots are too hard and can get stuck in the stirrups in case of a crash.
These boots are available in many different types, so select what is convenient, economical, and suited for riding you do. You do not have to wear "riding boots" as long as the soles and heels are appropriate. Cheap riding boots made of cowhide and walking shoes from about $100. Most saddlery corners grow with slightly used boots made of cowhide and gum, which are ideal for equestrians with a good price-performance ratio.
At times it is possible to find appropriate boots at the economy stores, or there may be something in the back of your closetthat would work. You may already have appropriate lingerie, complete with sport bra, if you are active in other disciplines. Stack-shop often offer a range of bra s and lingerie for riding.
Stores that specialise in jumping and walking are also places where you look for comfy underwear.
