To make your horse ride safe and enjoyable please follow the recommendations: it is important to choose suitable clothes and shoes. You can choose tight trousers or bridges made of breathable fabric and a light jacket. Be sure to put a helmet on your head, it will protect your head.
It is better to choose shoes from natural material that minimize sweating. Fasteners are not welcome, as they can cling to equipment and distract you. We recommend wearing gloves –they will protect your hands and provide a good grip on the reins.
It is important to choose the “right” horse. As a rule beginners are offered calm and balanced animals, but in any case you should establish contact and suppress fear in yourself, if there is one. So before the first trip, communicate with your new horse, get used to him and let him get used to you.
It is important to follow basic safety rules. When you are near a horse don’t make loud sounds and make sharp movements. Also, you should not approach a horse from behind; it can get frightened and kick.
